What is a Bill to Address?

In shipping, the term “bill to address” refers to the address where the recipient of goods or services would like the invoice or bill to be sent. It is the address that is used by the seller or service provider to send the invoice for payment. 

The bill to address is typically provided by the buyer or recipient of the goods or services and may be different from the shipping address or the address where the goods or services were actually delivered. For example, a company may order goods to be delivered to a warehouse or distribution center but may request that the invoice or bill be sent to their corporate headquarters. 


The bill to address is an important element of the billing and payment process in shipping, as it ensures that the correct party is invoiced for the goods or services provided. It also helps to ensure that the invoice is sent to the correct location, which can help to avoid delays in payment or issues with invoicing accuracy.
