Transmitting shipping details

The merchant can transmit the buyer’s shipping details (e-mail address, title, phone number etc.).

To benefit from the PayPal merchant protection, you must imperatively transmit this data via the payment form. The protection only concerns orders that require shipping. The shipping address known to PayPal must be exactly the same as the one where the package is sent.

This information can be found in the transaction details in the Expert Back Office (Delivery tab).

Use optional fields according to your requirements.
