I have a box at a private mailbox service. It is my legal address, and I just call them, and they will sent it to any address I ask them to. Doesn't cost much, depends on how long since I last had my mail sent and the volume in the box. I've been using them for several years now, and it has worked out great.

If you put in a change of address from a mail drop address, to a new USPS address it should be forwarded per my local postmistress about a year ago.

But don't expect the USPS to forward mail to you from the mail drop to your current location for free without a change of address entered.

e-Bay purchases

Has anyone had any difficulty in having items that were purchased on e-Bay and the like, and paid through Pay-Pal?

What is done for them to have a "Confirmed Address" or is that not a problem?

Thanks,
Jim

We regularly use PayPal and have never had an issue.

I don't understand the problem portion of your post.

Jim I often pay for online items using Pay Pal as well as credit Cards and I have them sent to an address that is not the same as whats on the card or my Pay Pal account (often a different country as well) but from time to time the vendor may reject the order over that issue so I just call or email the vendor and explain why and they are good with it.

Norm,

I thought the message you sent was in a private email since I didn't see your question posted, so I responded there. I will get the hang of the delayed postings yet. Here is the response I sent to Norm to better illustrate what I was asking.


Hi Norm,

I should have given more information in the post. What I was refering to is that after buying something and I go the page with my shipping address, there is a little notation next to it that indicates whether my address is "confirmed" or somthing to that effect. It always indicates that it is since I have bought a lot using my home address.

I was wondering if eBay needs to have a stable address in order for that to be so indicated. If not indicated, what happens? If not confirmed, do they just note it as such, and warn the seller? If the seller sees that the address is not certified, can they refuse to ship?

Was wondering if eBay checks your address against other data sources to check for consistency, and if that would be a problem if your address changes periodically while traveling.

I hope that states my question better.

Since you have not experienced any difficulties when ordering and receiving stuff while on the road, there probably is nothing to be concerned about.

Thanks,
Jim


Since then, Carol has responded with her experience, so it looks like there could be an issue with the seller. Best to connect with seller if questions about the address arises.

Jim
