    Hi folks,


    I have a new woocommerce store and got my first order via paypal but when I log into paypal it says payment unclaimed and "verify?".

    Anyone know what this is and if it is safe to verify and accept the payment?

    Thanks.

    from the looks of it, this can happen for 2 main reasons:
    - the email address you use on your site isn't confirmed/added to your paypal address
    - the buyer doesn't have a confirmed shipping address

    As far as I know my email address is confirmed and setup as it is a special paypal account for that email address.
