Default PO Box address for ID verification?

If I use a PO Box for the address on a stealth account, but then get limited, will PayPal accept ID with the PO Box listed? I don't think my real ID even allows PO Boxes though.

(Sure the simple way would be to use a street address, but this question is about PO Boxes.)

I doubt it. You should probably use a UPS address.

While I agree with jeffweico (since no ID is issued for a po box address hah), you could do ID with some smart address modification

I'm not saying it is impossible. It is just that I have never seen a driver's license with a PO BOX for an address. And if they DO exist, I don't see eBay/PayPal/Amazon accepting it. Of course, this is just my OPINION.

I agree, I do not think you can use a PO Box of a DL at all.

Many other workarounds to get an address other then using a PO Box.

I spoke to a friend (well up here in Canada) who works for DMV equivalent - I had my suspicions and he confirmed them - no issue of DL to a po box address - has to be a residence whether owned or rented.

I know you could not get away with it here in Florida as they are way over picky about everything you do.

To rent a PO Box you have to hand them over proof you live at that address etc.

And for any name to get mail to that box you have to provide ID etc.

It is that way everywhere. The USPS requires a driver's license, proof of residency (copy of lease, current car or homeowners insurance bill, mortgage documents, etc.) and if a corporation or LLC, the LLC operating agreement or certificate of good standing. I was also told that if anyone else would be receiving mail there, or even just picking up mail, their license would be needed as well.

Yes, that is correct to obtain a po box. I was just wondering how someone/business can use a po box on EB/PP and still pass being limited and verify their ID address matches the account.

You just have to be creative in changing the PO Box to a street address. Every USPS building has a physical address...so why not use it? Use a test mail to see if the mail will go through.

I have a stealth account running for a year with this same method.


PO Box 1234
Anytown, XX 12345


500 Front St <---this is the real street address of your local Post Office
Unit# 1234 <--- your PO Box number
Anytown, XX 12345

They may have the PO BOX as their address that shows to the outside world, but I'm guessing they had to provide their real address to PayPal.

To correct one thing... You can have a PO box on your DL. I have it. The only way you can have this on your license is if you have a "police block" on your License. ONLY IF you are a government employee or police officer. Hope that helps.

OH i also forgot... if you are a spouse of someone in the government or police officer you will get a police block too.

To help out on verification etc for a po box or UPS box... SAMS club card is now considered part of "verification ID"

and SAMS CLUB is very lax on their end to obtain one.

You can use SAMS club card (has photo ID) to get a mail box etc. It is used as a credible form of ID. Ask the UPS store and they can verify. Just ask if your SAMS club card is also a form of ID.

The SC website says you have to show drivers or state id to get the membership card, meaning your name and photo will be the same as the state id, so why not just use the state id to begin with?
