Changing the address on your eBay account

Your primary postage address is the default we'll provide to sellers so they know where to send your item to. However, you can always select a different address, or add a new one, during checkout.

You can find all the addresses you use on eBay, including your registration address and primary postage address, in the Addresses - opens in new window or tab section of My eBay. It's a good idea to regularly review your addresses and update any that you no longer use. You can also add or update your address from the checkout page.

Changing your postage address at checkout

Before you complete your purchase, always check your address details. If you need to change your postage address at checkout, select Change in the Post to section. You can then choose from any of the addresses saved to your account or add a new address.

To add a new address:

  1. Select Add a new address.
  2. Enter your new address.
  3. If you'd like to make this address your primary delivery address, select Save as primary address.
  4. Select Add.

To update an existing address:

  1. Select Edit next to the address.
  2. Update your details.
  3. Select Save at the bottom of the page.

Whenever you enter a new address at checkout, we'll save it so you won't have to enter those details again in the future.

Changing your postage address after you've paid

If the postage address you provided during checkout is incorrect, you won't be able to change it. Instead, you should let the seller know as soon as possible by selecting Contact the seller on the order's delivery information page.

You can find more information in our article about changing your postage details after a purchase.

Your primary postage address is the default address we provide to sellers, so they can send the items you've purchased. You can always select an alternative address during checkout.
