If you have placed the order at the wrong address by mistake, but want to change the address, it can be done. But, only until time Amazon has not started processing the order. You can also look for the option “need to change shipping address” in the reasons for cancellation. 

In order to change the shipping address once you have placed the order on Amazon, follow these steps:-

Change Address in Amazon After Placing an Order1
  • Go to your Amazon account home page, and then sign in to your Amazon account. 
  • Go to your account, then click on “Your orders”.
  • Simply select the order that you want to change the address for.
  • Then click on “view order details” and then you can modify the shipping address. 

The steps mentioned above are for the Amazon website on the browser. 

If you want to change the shipping address in the app, you can follow these steps:-

  • Open the app on your phone or your tablet. 
  • Go to the icon that looks like a person. Click on it.
  • Then click on “Your Orders”
  • Then select the order for which you want to change the shipping address.
  • Then click on “Change this order” and then proceed to change the shipping address. 

The important thing to remember is that it may not be possible for you to change the shipping address in case your product isn’t being shipped by Amazon. If the seller is someone else, you will have to cancel the order and then reorder your product to the desired address.
