Default Email when payment received no longer contains buyer's address?

Does the email Paypal sends you when payment received no longer contain the buyer's address? Just asking because lately I've only been seeing the postal code/zip code in there and I'm not sure if it's just me or if they changed the rules again.

If I can't see the address from the email anymore it's going to be a huge pain in the butt to actually log in to every account every time to ship it -_-

It could be a bug, I noticed this too yesterday in a new payment notification.
There are only name and zip code.

I get their full address as always. the only change that I have noticed recently, is that the buyers full name shows on the email source part, not just "service@paypal.com" (IIRC). So instead of:

service@paypal.com
Instant payment received from David Cameron

I now get:
David Cameron
Instant payment received from David Cameron

Happened to me too. No more address, just Name and Zip Code. Not a real big deal, but kind of annoying if you're trying to ship items from a recently limited account.

On one hand I'm glad it's not just me, on the other it sucks because I guess Paypal is doing it on purpose.

I don't think they are doing this on purpose. We can still log in to account to see shipping address. However, it could be a pain in axx for people with a lot of stealth.

All you have to do is think a little harder, same thing happened to me but instead of making a post I just used my head, went back to my email and clicked on the "your item sold" email and there it was the full shipping address..

That's on the outside link of the email, I get the same thing but the op is talking about after you open the email and look inside, address doesn't show up but it does in the "your item sold" emails.

Wow didn't realize this even though I swear I checked that email to see if the address was there.

The only thing I'd still be a little worried about is that sometimes people have different addresses on Paypal and eBay, and you're supposed to be shipping to the Paypal one I believe. Either way, thanks!

The item sold email has shipping addresses but it doesn't mean you can always ship to that address since buyer hasn't paid you yet.

Then you should know that many buyers have old addresses under their ebay info, and only update their paypal.

Never go off the ebay address unless you like shipping to the wrong address. Sure 90% of the same, they're the same, but if you ship a lot of stuff like a lot of us do, then you're going to have problems.

For sellers like myself who use stealth return addresses, the last thing we want is bad addresses. Everytime it happens I'm forced to refund the buyer when the return to sender shows received, even though I don't live there.

Yeah I know what your saying, but I've also had times where the buyers only updated their ebay address and not paypal so in my experience it's about 99.9% amout that update paypal and not ebay as well as those who update ebay and not paypal..

Then yet buyer has a chance to update their shipping address during checkout, so either way you should confirm buyer shipping address unless you want to ship to a wrong address.

Since you still see the buyer's Zip code/Postal code from the Paypal email, you can still easily make sure that it is the same code as the one on the eBay email and voila. You can be sure it is the same address.
