To “confirm” and “verify” your PayPal account is a crucial part of doing business online and a requirement by MJM Autohaus, Inc. in order to accept a PayPal payment from our customers.  This is a policy set forth by PayPal to protect its users and create a secure online community.  By shipping only to confirmed and verified accounts, MJM Autohaus, Inc. is helping to ensure that merchandise is being shipped to the PayPal account holder. 

What is a confirmed address?

A confirmed address is one that has been validated by PayPal and established as belonging to the PayPal account holder. PayPal confirms addresses to help:

·         Guard against stolen credit cards.

·         Verify your identity.

·         Decrease chances of vendors receiving a fraud-related chargeback.

To validate an address, PayPal ensures that the buyer's credit card billing and shipping address are the same, or they examine the buyer's PayPal account history and confirm the address. Currently, PayPal can only confirm addresses for the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom


To learn more about confirmed addresses:

1.    Log in to your PayPal account.

2.    Click Security Center at the top of the page.

3.    Click Selling Safely.

4.    Click Confirmed address.

What is an unconfirmed address?


An unconfirmed address is an address PayPal hasn’t been able to reliably associate with the PayPal account holder.   There are a number of reasons why a buyer’s legitimate address might be unconfirmed.  For example:


·         Buyer may have recently added the new address to their PayPal account

·         The buyer lives in a country where address confirmation is not available.

Alternate Address Confirmation (U.S. Accounts Only)

Alternate Address Confirmation (AAC) is a way for PayPal members to confirm their non-credit card billing addresses. To qualify for AAC, you must:

If you qualify for AAC, PayPal will mail a secret code to the address you are trying to confirm. After you enter the secret code correctly into the PayPal website, you will need to fax several documents to PayPal. Once these faxed documents are confirmed, your address will become Confirmed.

Remember, you can confirm your address immediately simply by adding a credit card to your PayPal account.
