Why does my PayPal account need to be verified and confirmed? Verifying your PayPal account and confirming your shipping address with PayPal ensures a higher level of confidence in the buying process and reduces the risk of fraud for both you and Crucial. PayPal requires verification that the shipment is being sent to the address used for the credit card. This also helps protect the buyer against identity theft. At this time, Crucial requires both Payer Verification and Address Confirmation for all orders paid via PayPal. If either of these processes are incomplete, your order will be canceled and Crucial will not collect payment from your PayPal account. Both of these processes must be completed with PayPal before placing an order on Crucial.com. See “How do I become confirmed and verified?” below.
A verified account means that you have taken the steps to provide additional evidence of your identity to PayPal. Both buyers and sellers have additional protection and benefits when using or accepting verified accounts.
PayPal may be contacted directly to complete both the Payer Verification and Address Confirmation processes. This information can be found on PayPal’s website, or by calling PayPal. Also, please understand that either process is not necessarily immediate; PayPal updates can take 24-72 hours, depending on the issue.
