How to update address on ebay and why is it important?
Let’s go straight to the point, if the postal address on your ebay account is not up to date, any time you purchase something, you will have to send the seller a message to notify them your new address. However, we’ve got a few cases where the customers didn’t send us the message right after the item was purchased and the items were posted to the incorrect address as we (and most of the sellers) rely on the postal address provided by ebay.
How to update your address on ebay? Follow these steps:
  1. Go to Myebay
  2. Click on “Account”Tab (its between “Message” and “Application” tabs)
  3. Go to “My eBay Views” on the menu to the left of the page and click on “Addresses” under “My Account”
  4.  Click on the change link next to the address you want to update. If you are a buyer then you should update your primary postage address which is your main postage address for purchases. 

Definition of the different types of address.
  1. Registration address (for buyers and sellers) – this is your main contact address, so please keep it up to date and accurate.
  2. Payment address (for sellers) – this is where you’d like buyers to send payments for items you sell. It will only be displayed to winning bidders or buyers if you accept payments by mail.
  3. Primary postage address (for buyers) – this has been explained above.
  4. Primary post from address (for buyers) – this is where the packages will be posted from.

  5. Click “Add address” button near the bottom of the page to add an address. Click “Edit” under the address you want to edit. Click “Remove” under the address you want to remove.
Note: if you are editing a postal address that is also your card billing address, please first update your address with your card issuer. Also, if you are editing a postal address, you cannot change the country field. PayPal users are recommended to create a new PayPal account in that country if you are moving to another country.
