Amazon provides you the most convenient options to get the items you want delivered to your doorstep. One good thing in Amazon is the flexibility to use different addresses for your delivery depending upon the scenario.
But before that- do you know the difference between shipping address and billing address in Amazon?
The billing address is the address directly associated with your payment method or card. For e.g. if you use credit or debit card to make the payment for your Amazon Orders, it is the address associated with the card that is used as billing address. And shipping address as the name indicates, is the address on which you want to take delivery of the goods.
In other words, the billing address is more of permanent address which is directly linked to your card or payment method. While the shipping address may vary from order to order depending on where you want to receive the delivery. So the billing address gets saved in Amazon as a part of the credit or debit card details.

How did Amazon set my billing address?
When you add a NEW card and place your FIRST Amazon order on that card, you need be extra careful of the billing address. This is because you have to fist confirm the delivery address in the course of your normal Amazon order journey. And this selected delivery address also gets saved as the billing address for that particular card-since it’s the first transaction on the card.
This is unless you take the trouble to notice the option to manually change the billing address before completing the transaction.
So in circumstances, where you are using a new card to order something at a relative or friend’s delivery address. Be very careful to note that this delivery address could also get saved as billing address of the card in case it’s the FIRST transaction on the card. So do take the trouble to note and change the billing address before completing the transaction.
You are also used to verify your card details since in these scenarios the shipping address will differ from your billing address (associated with the card)
Next time whenever you place an order using the same card, the billing address saved in the FIRST transaction done on that card gets auto-picked as it considered a permanent setting.
However, you can always change the billing address by going to payment settings and selecting the card whose billing address is to be changed.
To add a new address in general- You can go to Account & List option and then selecting “Your Addresses” option from the list of options.
Here, you get the master list of all addresses you have used on Amazon.
