Hi I have a quick question and paypal customer service don't answer e-mails or tweets. This is not about selling anything and avoiding ebay fees etc. I figure someone on here might know. Thanks for helping if you do ;)

If someone sends me money as a gift, what details do they need and what sort of information does that make them privy to? Home address etc. or do they just get my email?

That's all thanks.

just your email address that is registered with paypal is all they need. They will be able to see your verified address and real name once they have sent the money via paypal, but won't have any of your banking details though

hi, i'm not 100% but when sending money as a gift i'm almost sure the person sending the money only gets your name. no address ever gets released as far as i'm aware. obviously they get your email address if they pay via email address.

somone on here should be able to say 100%.

Obviously they are not going to be able to get the persons address, I think all you can see is the name and the email addres

After flicking through the last few payments I received, you only get their name. No address. I've checked on paypal's website as well, and still can't find any addresses...

Finally got a reply from Paypal -

"
Thanks for contacting PayPal. I appreciate the opportunity to assist you
with your questions.

The only information they would have is your email address, PayPal will
not share any other information to the other party, unless it is for a
purchase and then PayPal will only share the email address and ship to
address"

Thanks again for all your help.
