paypal buyer's address doesn't match Ebays address.
If I use Paypal's address am I still eligible for seller protection?
Welcome to the forums, @elgae! I hope everything is going well for you.
Anyways, if you use the address from PayPal, you won't be eligible for eBays Seller Protection but you will be eligible for PayPal's own seller protection program. And vice versa if you use the address from eBay. Because of this, I only ship my items if the Buyer's address matches on PayPal and eBay - I saw another seller doing this so I decided to do the same without question.
Honestly, I didn't find out about the address situation until just now and, interestingly enough, I recently paid an eBay seller with an address that's different than the address on my PayPal account. Thankfully, it's not an unauthorized transaction so, if I want a refund, I'll do it through eBay. No, I don't know if you're the seller I purchased from.
