One of my customer purchased a physical product via Paypal Express Checkout. His shipping address is oversea.

However Paypal refuses the payment, because Paypal doubts the account/credit card is stolen (because of oversea shipping address).

Paypal suggests us NOT sending the shipping address to them.

How we could achieve this in Magento?

  • Customer required to fill-in the shipping address in order form
  • but not sending to Paypal.
  • Customer should be able to review the shipping address in My Order afterward.

Thanks a lot !

    By following magento.stackexchange.com/questions/45282/…. Please first try in file magento\vendor\magento\module-paypal\Model\Api\Nvp.php set $request['NOSHIPPING'] = 1; // add this line. If it works fine then Override that File

You can create a Plugin for it.

Declare module - /app/code/Namespace/Module/registration.php :


Declare Plugin - /app/code/Namespace/Module/etc/di.xml :

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <type name="Magento\Paypal\Model\Api\Nvp">
        <plugin sortOrder="1" name="namespaceModuleNvp" type="Namespace\Module\Plugin\Model\Api\NvpPlugin"/>

Plugin file - /app/code/Namespace/Module/Plugin/Model/Api/NvpPlugin.php :


namespace Webart\Base\Plugin\Model\Api;

 * Class NvpPlugin
 * @package Webart\Base\Plugin\Model\Api
class NvpPlugin
     * @param \Magento\Paypal\Model\Api\Nvp $subject
     * @param callable $proceed
     * @param $methodName
     * @param array $request
     * @return mixed
    public function aroundCall(\Magento\Paypal\Model\Api\Nvp $subject, callable $proceed, $methodName, array $request)
        $request['NOSHIPPING'] = 1; // All this stuff for that ;-)
        return $proceed($methodName, $request);
  • Can We pass "NOSHIPPING" if free shipping selected? Commented Apr 8, 2019 at 8:48
  • No need for an around plugin. Using beforeCall() is enough. Commented Feb 23, 2021 at 14:46
