Default Is a dedicated/fresh IP essential when just purchasing?

I wish to create a US PayPal simply to make purchases to my USA mail forwarding address. (If only I was able to add this address to my UK PayPal!)

I understand that, if you plan on selling, a fresh/Dedicated IP is essential. But what about just purchasing?

People say to stay away from PureVPN etc... as they are shared but does that really matter when you have a buyers account (not sellers)?

Thanks

Really?

I thought I would need a US IP if the account is US based. I could use a UK dongle if you think that won't cause problems?

I have not had issues using UK accounts in the US and vise versa for just buying in the past. They were a year old account mind you

No, the purchase is from an off-ebay website. He will ONLY take PayPal and does not ship directly to the UK.

Unable to add US address to UK PayPal.

So my only option is to create a US PayPal account with a US address. Just need to know if they check IP addresses on accounts that don't sell.

Can you not just check out as a guest on the US PayPal?

Default Re: Is a dedicated/fresh IP essential when just purchasing?

I could risk checking out as a guest but I've heard on the forums that the payment could either be held or be returned as PayPal don't like Guest Checkouts for large amounts.

I plan on spending at least 300 in one transaction, possibly a little more. I'm concerned that because it's definitely over 100 (or $100), they won't accept it.

So you can use the guest. If it get returned then buy another method. No risk.

So, use Guest Checkout, and if it fails, sign up for a PayPal account and do it that way? If I needed to eventually open an account, would I be able to use the same info I've been using a guest?

Are there any drawbacks to the guest checkout? Like, is it possible to open a dispute if needed?

On PayPal you do get buyer protection when checking out, but to use it you have to make an account with the email address you used to check out as a guest and it can be a PITA

I would STILL SUGGEST you to check if its blaclisted. If that IP has been previously used for such things as hacking or carding, you moght not get the goods, even though the possibility is very low
