The careOf read-only property of the PaymentAddress interface returns a string containing the name of an intermediary party or entity responsible for transferring packages between the postal service and the recipient.


var paymentCareOf = PaymentAddress.careOf;


In the example below, the various properties of the PaymentAddress object are retrieved into individual variables for later use, with the exception of the addressLine array property, which is copied into another array.

var pmtcountry =;
var pmtaddress = PaymentAddress.addressLine.slice(0);
var pmtregion = PaymentAddress.region;
var pmtcity =;
var pmtdeploc = PaymentAddress.dependentLocality;
var pmtpostal = PaymentAddress.postalCode;
var pmtsorting = PaymentAddress.sortingCode;
var pmtlang = PaymentAddress.languageCode;
var pmtorg = PaymentAddress.organization;
var pmtrecip = PaymentAddress.recipient;
var pmtcareof = PaymentAddress.careOf;
var pmtphone =;
