Recently I started trying out eBay and the last few days I got into a discussion on Paypal confirmed addresses. This is because a seller cancelled my bid on his item and rudely said that he suspected that I do not have a Paypal confirmed address so he won't be able to ship to me.
Apparently some eBay sellers on the UK eBay discussion boards also keep insisting to me that Singaporeans cannot have Paypal confirmed addresses and only pple from US, UK and CA can have confirmed addresses. One guy even directed me to a thread that says this but it was in 2003!
Is this true?
Because all along I thought I had a Paypal confirmed address. At the Paypal site, under the Help Section it says this
q. How do I confirm my shipping address?
A. Add a credit card to your PayPal account. By adding a credit card to your account, PayPal can attempt to confirm your address with your credit card company. If the credit card company is not able to confirm your address, you may be asked to complete the Expanded Use enrollment process to activate your credit card. Your address can be confirmed after that process is complete. Note: Not all credit card companies are able to confirm addresses.
So this is what I did, I added my credit card number to Paypal and I remember got a notification to say that my address has been confirmed.
I even bought from a US seller last Sunday using my paypal account that is linked to my credit card.
Any experienced eBay bros here can help me by telling me how do i check if my paypal account has a confirmed address? Is it true that all singaporeans no matter what cannot possibly have a paypal confirmed address?
I WANNA SCREENCAP BIG BIG TO PROVE TO THOSE BUGGERS THAT SINGAPOREANS CAN HAVE A PAYPAL CONFIRMED ADDRESS.
Abit annoyed by those UK people, look down on singaporeans. And keep insisting that I cannot have a paypal confirmed address.
I think we need to rise up as Singaporeans. Cannot be pushed around by those people anymore.
