unconfirmed address

Just a few days ago someone bought an item from me. When checking PayPal I noticed the person had an unconfirmed address. I have sent two emails to the person to verify address before I mailed it - PayPal info says to do this. I have received no response from the person. The item purchased was a minimal price. I have decided to wait until Monday and send another email. Then. I suppose I'll just forget about it. Any suggestions?
This person had contacted me before the purchase so I'm sure he/she uses the internet readily. Thanks

If it's a non-US address, it will be unconfirmed at Paypal.
I believe you are doing the right thing about waiting until Monday, I will only ship to a confirmed address and I don't see any reason why people don't confirm their addresses anyway, it's free to do so!
I ship to unconfirmed addresses all the time. It's never been a problem.

I found out yesterday that my address is unconfirmed, even though I have my Paypal account set up and properly linked.

There are many logical reasons a person could have an unconfirmed address. I wouldn't worry about it. Just ship.
I always just ship if payment is cleared, and have never had any problems. Just make sure to track it, or add signiture confirmation if it is a more expensive item. A person can use PayPal a number of times before they make you confirm your address.
Was your buyer a US Buyer? International buyers do not have confirmed addresses I believe?
I ship to unconfirmed addresses as long as the paypal address matches the etsy address.
I would just ship it, confirmed or unconfirmed. I never have my buyers waiting for their purchases.
Unconfirmed addresses are really not that big of deal. We ship to them in all of our shops. Never a problem.
I use signature confirmation all the time. Delivery confirmation means very little.

Unfollow username?
