I'm moving. How do I update my address?

If you're moving to a different address soon, it's a good idea to set your account to inactive some time in advance, so that postcards stop being sent to your old address.

Once you're settled in your new home, update your address in your account, including the City/Place, if it has changed. If you had set your account to inactive, you can switch it back to active again.

Keep in mind that postcards may still arrive to your old address after you've moved... so, it might be a good idea to check it now and then.

PS - If you're moving to another country, please note that you can only change your country in Postcrossing once every 60 days. For shorter periods of time (holidays, business trips, etc), we don't recommend that you change your address. Instead, just set your account to inactive temporarily.
