As I use my Paypal account for various online services, I noticed that vendors integrate differently with Paypal for on-demand payment, and scheduled payments.
I also noticed that Paypal offers a "verified ID" service so that we can be sure that the proposed paypal account is truly who the user says they are.
I haven't investigated this API deeply, but think there is probably a creative way I can use this tight coupling between a Paypal ID, and the HTTP/REST result returned to my application to verify various aspects of the buyer.
Can Paypal be reliably used to verify Identity, residence, or any other aspect of Identity?
Are there some aspects of identity that Paypal should not be used for with 3rd parties? (Citizenship, residency, etc)
