As you move into a new home, whether it's a house or an apartment, the addresses of all your online accounts change one of the most monotonous tasks that need to be done. It's even more boring when you need to update both shipping and billing addresses. But it is necessary, and if you regularly use PayPal, it is one of the first places you want to update.
Why is it important to have updated contact information on your PayPal account? For example, if you are trying to buy something like popular concert tickets online, which may sell out quickly, an incorrect billing address may mean the difference between a successful purchase or leaving empty hands. If you buy a product with PayPal, it can come to an old primary address instead of the new one.
Avoid any purchase problems by changing your primary address and billing address on PayPal. However, Android and iOS apps for PayPal Mobile Cash are quite limited to what you can tweak from your iPhone or Android phone, but that doesn't mean there's no way to fine-tune some of your preferences.
