Hi Liu, 


So the answer to this question will depend on where your friend's customers are and if that is going to change. From your question I am assuming that you are talking about the physical address of their company changing. If that is correct then here is how it will affect your account: 


  1. Merchant Center account: will not be affected by a change of business address details. They will just need to make sure that their feed is up to date with the appropriate details for the country they are targeting in their PLAs. 
  2. AdWords account: could be affected. They will not be able to change the currency of their account. That is a setting that is established during the account set up which cannot be altered after that. If they want to change the currency of their AdWords account, they will have to set up a new one with a different email address. 

Let us know if you have any further questions,
