PayPal lets you view a buyer's address online.

When you sell an item to someone who does not live nearby, chances are you will need to ship the item. If you accepted payment via PayPal, chances are good you can find the buyer's address easily. PayPal typically provides you, the seller, with the address of the person who made the payment to your PayPal account. This is not immediately displayed, however, and you must know where to look to find it.
