About Paypal

credit card

PayPal allows payment through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit, or PayPal account balances.

As a convenience, PayPal fills out the billing address fields with the buyer’s shipping address. The buyer can edit the information by clicking the Change links.  However, you can't tweak the Billing Address on the Order Confirmation at the end of checkout. 

Shopify is currently unable to do anything about this and we apologise to our customers for any undue alarm.  We assure you that we will save your billing address as the one you enter at our checkout and not what is confirmed back to you by Paypal Express.  

Please do not panic if you see that it appears as if Paypal has billed your recipient.  We also assure you that invoices are not sent to recipients.

When you check out next time you will simply login with your password to pay.  It should be a quick and painless shopping experience.
