If the package hasn’t shipped yet, cancel the order and place a new one for the right address.

If you are buying an item for a friend that is on their wish list, you can still send them the package even though their address is hidden from view. Otherwise, you will need to specify an address to send a shipment.

When entering the details of your shipping address, Amazon will flag any details outside of its delivery parameters. Make sure you shop on the Amazon website of your respective country or region for the most accurate shipping rates and estimates.

Contact Amazon customer service if your order has been delivered to the wrong address. They will generally send a replacement free of charge.
