Default Mailing address for Paypal

I have a Ebay and Paypal account with ⊗⊗⊗⊗ mailing address. When I bought an item on Ebay and paid with a money order, even though i clearly wrote my desired mailing address for receiving item together with the money order, some sellers didn't read and ship to my ⊗⊗⊗⊗ Ebay address.

Can I open a PO box and change the Ebay and Paypal address to the PO box address? Will it trigger a red flag?

Also, one of the sellers accepts credit card via Paypal but he uses Channel advisor Checkout, but it has the ebay item number on it. If I pay with my Credit card (not Paypal account) to his Paypal account and change the address to my real address, will Paypal know if later I use Paypal for receiving money from my Ebay sales? Please help

Paypal shouldnt let you use a po box even though it has been known, anyway i would try one of those po box companies who give you a real address.

Just use UPS, their po box service gives you a real st address instead of having to add "PMB" in the address.

When I had opened my UPS box, I did have to show my driver's license, however I was able to add any name to the box.

My box has since expired and the cost of it has increased, so I did not renew it. BUT it seems like I really do need to have a real address, huh? I guess I should invest in another one - any input?

The cost can be quite a bit since usually requires minimum 3 months commitment. But you might be able to find other smaller places that has this kinda service for less. But if you want a real address you will have to pay up.

How long have you been doing this? Over three months or 10 minutes? If it is not a good long period, qualify the post. Otherwise the info is not hard facts, sorry.

I want to open a PO box for a new selling ebay account. Also does post office allow a DBA name or any company name. Do they check driver's license? Can i choose this company name instead of an individual name when i fill out mailing address on Ebay for Ebay account set up?

I think they will all require a DL or some form or ID but you are allowed to add another name or a company name on to the po box. Some might charge extra for this but I know UPS don't. As long as you are able to receive that mail it doesn't matter which name it's in for your ebay account.

good luck

Look for a Mailbox Joeys and see what they charge.
I am still trying to figure out exactly what I need to do to get back on Ebay but I emailed the Mailbox Joeys by me and they charge $8.00 for a small mailbox and commit to 3 months also, not sure if they except large packages if you pay for a small box though. Actually just realized I should have asked.

A bank near my house has a postal station (not a real USPS post office) they have PO boxes there. Since they are not an actual USPS post office, I wonder if their boxes have an address with the street, followed by bow number. I'd hate to go in there and ask them...sounds rather suspicious, or at least odd.
Might just try to think of something to check it out

To open a PO Box you need your drivers license and 2 forms of other proof of residency.....such as a utility bill...car registration....that matches the name/address on the DL....and although you can NOT add people to your PO Box without showing their ID (and they have to be present)...usually whatever mail comes for that box goes in that box...so not necessary really. Good Luck!
