Changing the order's shipping address

To be protected as a seller under eBay Money Back Guarantee, you should only ship orders to the address specified by the buyer at checkout. If a buyer contacts you and asks you to ship their item to a different address, you can still do so, but you won't be protected if the buyer opens an eBay Money Back Guarantee claim.

The best option is to cancel the transaction; the buyer can then repurchase the item and check out with the correct shipping address.
