How to change eBay shipping address?
According to the information we received from the eBay counter clerk, you cannot edit or change your shipping address after placing the order. According to them, you must make all necessary changes to your shipping address before placing an order.
eBay allows its users to have up to two different shipping addresses. One is the primary shipping address and the other is the secondary shipping address.
Follow the instructions below to change your eBay shipping address before making a purchase;
- Step 1: Log in to your eBay account.
- Step 2: Click Update Shipping Addresses
- Step 3: Click the change address link next to it to edit the address.
- Step 4: Enter the address and select Ship to this address to save your changes.
- Step 5: Click “Add a new address” to add a new secondary shipping address.
How does the eBay shipping address work?
The eBay shipping address is where you want your purchased items to be delivered. Your primary shipping address is the default shipping address used when placing an order. Therefore, this should be the address you will use to receive most of the things you buy on eBay.
Interestingly, you can quickly change your eBay shipping address before you checkout. During the checkout process, eBay boldly issues a “Change Address” link to help you decide if you want to ship to a different address; such as an office or a summer home.
To do this, select a country, enter your name, phone number, email address and click add a new address to finish adding your new secondary address.
Changing your eBay shipping address after purchase
In short, eBay’s address policy allows users to change their shipping address before checkout. At this time, you cannot change your eBay shipping address after checkout.
To use your secondary shipping address to receive your items, you must ‘Set Priority” next to one of your secondary shipping addresses.
If you need the item purchased at a different address, you must also receive the item at the address specified in the eBay account and reship it to a new address. We think this makes sense.
