You are covered if you send it to unconfirmed addresses. Ebay only requires that you send it to the address provided (one that matches their ebay/PP accounts) and that there is tracking. If the auction isn't covered by seller protection, it'll say so on the transaction page.You won't be covered by Ebay/ PP if you send to any other than confirmed address. If they pay by USPS (only) money order and you cash it at your post office before sending the pkg, that would be OK to send to other than confirmed address. Lots of scams happen this way and you will be out your money and your item.
