How to Change a Shipping Address With PayPal

By Casey Anderson

Keeping an address current on PayPal is key to making sure your deliveries arrive at the correct address and in a timely fashion. If your primary address changes or you'd like to adjust any secondary delivery addresses in your account, you can do so with a quick update status to your PayPal Profile. While PayPal allows for more than one shipping address in your account, the primary address usually serves as the default when making purchases online, unless otherwise specified by the purchaser.

Step 1

Log in to your PayPal account and select "Profile" from the list of options under the Account tab.

Step 2

Choose "Update Street Address" in the Profile drop-down menu under "My Personal Info."

Step 3

Click "Edit" under the primary address or secondary address that you'd like to change. Choose "Edit" or "Remove" under any other addresses you have associated with your account, if you'd like to change them or delete them from PayPal.

Step 4

Update your account address by typing in the address, city and ZIP code in the text fields. Click "Save" to complete the process.

Tips & Warnings

  • PayPal doesn't allow a change of address to another country. If you want to change your address to different country, you'll need to close your current PayPal account and open a new one with the new address.
  • Changing your primary address will also change the PayPal billing address for the credit card associated with your account. Be sure to update your address with your credit card company as well.
