    I've been receiving a lot of payments this year from affiliate networks or people paying for services. Now I have to print some invoices.
    How do I get the name, address and country of the payers? In the paypal history I only see the paypal email addresses. Will I have to ask every one of them individually?

    How are you guys doing it?

    Usually, I will see their address in the invoice. So, I haven't encountered this problem before.

    Sorry.

    What invoice? Where?
    If you are the service provider you have to send him an invoice. But how can you send one if you don't know the details.
    I'm confused

    The invoice is automatically sent from Paypal to the buyer, using the seller's Pay Pal info.

    Ok, but I am usually the seller. So how do I get the info of the buyer?

    That's right, as a seller you normally get a small summary of the buyer data on the invoice. You can log into PP and see transaction details too.

    It depends what info the seller has specified to be shared as to what is sent to you.

    If the buyer bought a tangible item then you will know their full details like Name, Address, and email address.
    If they only bought an intangible item then you will only have limited information like email.
