    How old are you? You probably should not do any online purchasing if you can't figure that out.

    What a "Billing" address is for, is to send a statement or bill.

    Scenario: You want to buy a present for your mom in Connecticut and you live in Utah... You don't want her to freak out about how much you spent.... it's a gift anyway.. she doesn't need to know!

    You simply put Her address in the shipping and your info in the billing. She will receive a shipping document that will display the contents of the box. You will receive the "Statement" from the company in the mail regarding that you shipped a "yadaya" in the mail to so-and-so...

    Billing Information is also verified with the major credit card bureaus like Visa, Mastercard... you get the picture.

    Seriously it's a "Self-Explainitory" definition.

    In other words... RTFM...

    So what you do is enter the address where your Dad lives in the Billing Information. Enter your Aunt's address into the Shipping Information... and viola! Welcome to internet shopping.... Please review those links on safe buying...

    Welcome to the US.

    note... My scenario was close... just 2 different countries instead of states! haha

    "billing address" information is required for credit card payment as a means of verification. Failure to completethe address information, including zip/postal code, may result in the payment not being accepted by your credit card institution.

    billing address is the address that the credit card company sends your bills to. They ask for it to assist in making sure it isn't a stolen card.

    billing address literally means address to be billed,so if you're paying by credit card then the billing address will be the address the credit card is registered at, which i'm guessing would be your home?

    Because owning a car is not a necessity. Thus insuring it is not a necessity or a "bill" by welfare definition.

    the billing adress is the adress on the top right corner of the package. it should always be the adress of the person who is paying for the product. if it is shipped to the wrong house. then you can return it to the sender that way.
