What is a PayPal address?

A PayPal address is basically your email address that is verified with your valid information as a PayPal user. This is because PayPal accounts are linked to email addresses. Once you sign up on PayPax using your email address, an email will be sent to the same address, asking you to verify your account information and email address.

Most people think that PayPal will provide them with a special email address that is unique for the person. However, the company doesn't actually issue an address. Instead, you register on PayPal using an email address and that same address is also used to login the system and also to be given to other people for money transfer purposes.
