Default Ebay & Paypal change of address

This may seem like a dumb question but when we get to Oz, can we still use the same Ebay and Paypal accounts and just change the email and home addresses and bank details ? Or is it easier to just start again ?
Don't really want to lose the feedbacks we have added up.
Any help much appreciated.

I use the same accounts; have also discovered that you can use your ebay UK username & password to log in to ebay.com.au, and then it does a nice conversion in the "items you are bidding on" to tell you the price in dollars.
A lot of Aussie sellers seem to prefer direct bank deposit, or cash through the mail, to the use of Paypal, by the way, and not many mention cheques, as these are expensive to use over here.

Thanks guys, I'll leave it and change it all over when we get there.
Should be about 5 weeks time, as soon as the house completes.
Best wishes to all.

Changing eBay address to an Aussie one is, as other people have already testified, no big deal.

As for UK registered Paypal, while it does have a change of address facility, it will only allow UK addresses, not an Aussie ones. I had to resort to setting up a new Paypal account. Be aware that Paypal will not allow you to put in the same credit card details onto two Paypal accounts. So you'll have to close the old one, and lose any PayPal verified ratings you may have gained via Ebay seller.

Ebay seemed to get a bit confused about my linked PayPal account so I wrote to them about it and got the following reply:
Hello Neil,

Thank you for taking the time to write to eBay.

I understand that you want to update your PayPal email address on your
eBay account. I am happy to assist you further.

Neil, please note that the PayPal email address that your winning bidder
receives is part of eBay Checkout. When you complete the Sell Your Item
form either on the site or in Turbo Lister and choose PayPal as a
payment option, you are asked to enter the email address for PayPal
payments.

Once you submit an item with a certain address for PayPal payments, our
system will remember that address each time you list an item. If you
change your PayPal payment address there are 2 possible ways to update
this.

I will explain these steps separately to save any confusion.

Sell Your Item Form:
You can enter your new address in Step 4 of the "Sell Your Item form" -
Payment and Shipping. All you need to do is delete the address that
appears automatically and type the new address in its place.

Turbo Lister:
To update your PayPal address in Turbo Lister your will need to:

1. Start the Turbo Lister programme.
2. Select "Tools" and then "Options."
3. Now select the drop down on the "Personal Information" section.
4. Select "PayPal Account" and add your new email address in the box
provided and select "Apply."

This will store your new PayPal address for all new listings. Please
check each listing to be sure the correct address is entered.

Neil, I appreciate the opportunity to assist you. We wish you the best
in your future transaction on eBay.

Kind regards,
.
eBay Customer Support

Hope this helps
