First sale jitters

Got my first sale last night, woo hoo! I want to make sure I am not getting scammed though, as I am a complete etsy newbie. The buyer joined up in March but does not have any information in their profile. They paid via credit card. Their address showed up on google maps as a house. I have heard about making sure you confirm addresses. Is that just emailing them and having them send you back their address? I want to make sure that this is legit and am worried about a charge back once they receive the item. I sent an email to etsy but have not heard back yet. I am shipping it out this afternoon. Anything I should be cautious about or am I over thinking this? Thanks in advance for any help.

You are way over thinking this. Make sure you add delivery confirmation and if it is expensive, add insurance. And send it and enjoy your money :) Congrats!
