How to change the shipping address on eBay

As a buyer on eBay, there are several reasons you might want to change a shipping address. Perhaps you recently moved, live at more than one address or you would like to ship an order directly to a friend. eBay can accommodate you in these situations by allowing you to register multiple addresses on your customer account.

Sign in to eBay and click on the "My eBay" link at the top of the page.

Click the "Account" tab on "My eBay."

Go to "Addresses" under "My Account" on the list on the left side of the page.

Select "View all shipping addresses," which is underneath your registration address and primary shipping address.

Add, edit and remove addresses on the "Update shipping addresses" page by clicking the corresponding links and entering your information.


Your primary shipping address is the default address eBay will use when you make a purchase. To use an alternate address when you make a purchase, select it when prompted during the purchase confirmation process.
