When do I use the Bill to and when do I use the Ship to areas?


I need to know the difference between bill to and ship to.




  • Ship to is the most commonly used because you are shipping to that one customer.
  • Bill to is used when you have multiple bill to departments. For example Amazon, you bill to their billing department which may be differently located than where you are shipping.
  • Most use the ship to.
