I think you can add such ebay address to your PayPal account if an eBay seller insists on same address for both eBay and PayPal. I do buy from eBay USA with my UK PayPal and if one address is not accepted (usually for delivery and not billing address), I choose another address already on my PayPal profile. For instance, some eBay USA seller will not ship to the UK address but eBay UK seller will. So I would choose my US PayPal address for such US eBay sellers. Surprisingly, the UK PayPal is funded directly by my GTBank Naira MasterCard linked to it. So it's more or less like buying from eBay USA using Naira MasterCard.

Thanks for your update.

I dont understand, can you explain it better pls?

I know Nigeria's functionality of using PayPal is limited. Anyway, as long as I'm not receiving money. The reason I opened it in the first place is because I wanted to buy some stuffs from eBay.

Wow nice one arbitrage, so in this case, what address would I use to register my ebay? (Don't mean shipping address), and how can I add a U.S on paypal? Would the address still be confirmed?

Thanks man

Whatever you normally look at to confirm any transaction you carried out on your bank account or card is known as your bank statement or transaction history. That is the same thing you are to check up to see the 4-digit expuse code that PayPal is asking you for verification. It is usually part of the transaction description.

By default, PayPal will tell you that they will make that verification transaction to your card within 2 to 3 days but the deduction to is usually done within 20 minutes. You can even log in to your bank account or card account to see it showing already within minutes if your bank is the type that alerts/updates/notifies in real time. Some PayPal (and other sites) verification sometimes will involve asking you to confirm how much was deducted, and you can even know immediately if such card transaction passes through 3D MasterCard secure code or verified by Visa (vbv) protocol for authentication. This is because as it takes you to bank page to enter your MasterCard secure code or your vbv (internet pin - ipin), you will see the amount and details on that transition page for banks like GTBank MasterCard.

Alternatively, for users of banks or countries that do not have online banking to access and check up or confirm transactions, the alternative is to wait for your regular monthly bank statement before you can see your transaction history except you walk into banking hall to request. So such monthly bank statement people are covered by the 30 days leeway that PayPal mentioned there. You don't have to wait till then to get the 4-digit expuse code that has been done to your card within minutes by PayPal vendor to your acquiring bank.

If my memory serves me well, you do not require a billing address to register on eBay but a shipping address except you are registering a seller account and may be required to enter card/bank details, which usually goes with billing address. But when billing address comes up in your eBay purchase, that will automatically be the one belonging to your PayPal account since the two are same owner companies. Anyway the two companies are to be separated this month or so. So, while the shipping address can be any address that the seller would want to ship to by his coverage, the billing address must definitely be that of your bank card statement, which is what made it acceptable to PayPal in the first place. Therefore, it makes sense that your eBay address should tally with your PayPal billing address. I don't think you are allowed to change the eBay billing address during checkout but I'm sure of the shipping address as the billing address usually reflects the eBay country.

To be practical, I remember that I visited a Chinese website in December to see a ridiculously cheap price on Lenovo yoga ultrabook. Coincidentally, he accepts PayPal, which I thought I could charge back if he disappoints but I actually wanted to risk the money. I registered on that website with my Lagos Nigeria details for shipping delivery but the PayPal account I used was my US PayPal business account, which carries US billing address. While I doubted the seller and forgot the purchase, the seller actually shipped the item to my US business address as stated on the PayPal account instead of Nigerian shipping address I filled for item delivery. I later thought in February to even track the Chinapost number he gave me only to see the item was delivered to my US PayPal address early January. The item was later returned to USPS in late January when no claim from me was made for ownership.

Also I could remember my first PayPal account, which I opened in Nigeria but verified in South Africa using my Intercontinental Bank (now Access Bank) MasterCard. The PayPal account would allow me a primary home address as well as other business or additional addresses, which could be other countries for delivery. So I believe you can still do that because the UK PayPal account I mentioned before was used to pay for items on US eBay even though my GTBank naira card is linked to it.

Summarily, a US eBay account means that you must have US address registered on it while a UK eBay account will carry UK address during your registration but it is the PayPal account that is being twisted around now. Mind you, I didn't link the UK PayPal to my US eBay account, but immediately I want to checkout an eBay item for payment, I would try the two options it gives, which are to pay by card (US card, of course) or by PayPal. So I usually sign in with the UK PayPal after my US card option failed. I don't bother trying US PayPal account because mine is currently limited but I would choose UK PayPal because I want to use my GTBank naira MasterCard that is linked to it. And because it is UK PayPal, eBay will first show me that this US eBay seller cannot ship to the UK PayPal address. So I just manually choose another US address from my addresses list displayed to me. I guess those shipping addresses listed are from my eBay and not even PayPal profile while my eBay billing address would reflect the eBay country by default. I could also enter a new US address for delivery to complete the checkout if those addresses on my eBay list are not preferred by me, as long as the new one is within the Seller's delivery region.

Please contact the card issuer's customer service department if you have any questions. Or you can add a different card now to continue.)
For the GTB card, have you obtained the mastercard secure code? That's the most likely reason it is being declined

Such error do show forth if you do not have enough fund to cover the amount PayPal will charge the card.
Make sure you have enough money on the card if not yet and try again.

But I don't see an option to add fund my account, or can it because I don't want to setup a security question? Because I still have a notification of the right side of my screen telling me to setup a security question.
