Just today I noticed that the indications of Seller Protection and Customer Address Confirmation are no longer appearing on thew emails I get from PayPal notifying me of a payment.
I find this a bit disturbing.
This has been a comforting reassurance in emails for over 10 years. Now, PayPal "could" simply remove or update the eligibility at any time from their databases at their website and you have virtually no proof that at the time you shipped the item it was covered and the Sale was Eligibile for Seller Protection and the Address was Confirmed.
Even worse, When I go to the PayPal Summary page to ship the item, the web page says ELIGIBLE and Address CONFIRMED, but at the bottom of the page it says the buyer is UNVERIFIED and when I create a shipping label, when I look at the details for the shipment (where I get charged for the shipping), the bottom of that page says that the buyer has an UnConfirmed Residential Address. There is a plethora of conflicting information.
I can see no other reason for this EXCEPT to allow PayPal to do just that.
Is this happening for everyone else? This is eroding my confidence in PayPal.
Yes I just noticed what you said and I'm concerned as I might be in the middle of being scammed. I shipped a package to the verified address via FedEx with Signature Required using Ebay's shipping page and then after shipping the package was redirected to a different state (this was not authorized by me nor did I know this was possible). I noticed exactly what you mentioned on this transaction and you only see the details in the classic view. I'm concerned that I might end up being out both the product and the money.
