Are you asking as a seller or a buyer ?


The seller must ship to whatever address is on the PayPal payment details page and the seller needs to ship when it says "OK to Ship" there.

Never ship unless you check your PayPal account first to see if the money is there.

Yes, the buyer may be sending it as a gift. You must ship to the address on the PAYPAL payment. Disregard the one on Ebay.
