eBay's PayPal unit has started shipping a $5.00 keyring-sized device called PayPal Security Key that generates a unique security code for user accounts every 30 seconds.
It's an excellent anti-phishing giveaway from PayPal (the $5.00 even covers shipping and handling charges) that puts another hurdle between identity thieves and PayPal users that are constantly bombarded with fake e-mails attempting to hijack login credentials.
For some strange reason, I can't order the gadget. Here's the roadblock:
For security reasons, we can only ship the Security Key to an address associated with your PayPal account. Please add an address to your account. We cannot ship to a P.O. box.
I immediately checked into my profile page and found that my full snail-mail address is there with the status as "home".
Anyone else having this issue?
[UPDATE: February 14, 2007] PayPal contacted me to confirm this was was a bug at their end. It's now fixed and I was able to send through my order.
