eBay Inc. is an American multinational e-commerce corporation that allows its customers to bid online through its eponymous Internet platform. Operating out of San Jose, California, the company was founded in 1995 and has remained at the forefront of the e-commerce industry to this day. As a multinational corporation, they operate in more than 30 countries. This gives it at least an outstanding range for addressing the delivery of items purchased. Sometimes, however, we make the wrong choice and need to change the address where the parcel will arrive after it has been made. This is what we’re going to talk about next.
How to manage your shipping addresses
As mentioned above, it isn’t always the case that the original shipping address is correct. In case we need to change the shipping address on eBay, there are a number of features that will help you do this. The process itself is simple, all you need to do is follow the instructions below. So, in order to change the shipping address, you need:
How to change your main shipping address
- First, go to the eBay site and log in.
- Once you’re logged in, go to the “Update Shipping Addresses” page.
- Next, find the “Edit Address” link. Click on it.
- After following the link, fill out the form to change the address. Click “Ship to This Address” to confirm your changes.
This way you will save your new shipping address, and your ordered and paid items will be shipped to this address.
How to add secondary shipping address
Adding a secondary address is a great idea, especially if you’re an active user of this trading platform. With a predefined secondary shipping address, you can send some packages to work, for example, if necessary. In order to add another address, you need:
- As well as to change the main shipping address, you go to the “Update Shipping Addresses” page after logging in.
- Go to “Add a new address” after you open the page.
- Enter your country, name, phone number and address on the form to be filled in.
- Click on the “Add new address” button to confirm your changes.
Your primary address will always be the default when you check out for shipping. If you want to specify your secondary address as your shipping destination at checkout, look for the “Change Address” link. You can use this link to specify your work address or any other address you created as a secondary address.
How to delete any of your shipping adresses
Also, note that deleting the primary address will cause your secondary address to become your primary and default address. To delete, just click on the “Delete Address” button next to one of your shipping addresses. It will disappear, and you will have to add it manually to restore it.
How to make your secondary shipping address main
If you don’t want to delete your primary address, but you need to make the secondary primary address, click on the “Make Primary” button next to the shipping address you want to make the default address.
