Should you give your PayPal email out to a seller for payment requests?

I won an item and tried to pay with PayPal twice but it failed saying sellers PayPal isn't accepting mines, I contacted the seller and they asked me to email them my PayPal email do they can send me a payment request??? Is this safe?

Do not give them your email address.

If you pay outside of eBay checkout, you will void your Buyer Protection & not receive any eBay Bucks for your purchase.

 

Ask your seller to call Paypal & fix their account.

Your PayPal email address is perfectly safe and is given automatically to every seller you pay and every buyer who pays you.

 

The problem is that you need to pay for eBay items through eBay Checkout.

 

Not directly with PayPal. Paying directly with PayPal voids eBay Buyer Protection.

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.
