Amazon does not allow users to permanently delete order history for reasons related to account keeping, warranties, returns, etc. However, if you want to hide your order details from casual browsers on your account, you can ‘archive’ orders. This won’t delete the order, but it will remove it from the main order feed.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you archive your Amazon orders:
1. Sign In:
Table of Contents
First and foremost, you’ll need to sign in to your Amazon account.
2. Access Your Orders:
- Go to the top right corner where you see “Returns & Orders”. Click on it.
- This will take you to your order page, which displays all the orders you’ve made.
3. Locate the Order You Wish to Archive:
Scroll through your order list and find the order you’d like to archive.
4. Archive the Order:
- Once you find the order you want to archive, go to the right side of the screen.
- You’ll see an “Order Details” link. Click on it.
- Now, scroll down and you should see an option called “Archive Order”. Click on it.
- Amazon will ask for a confirmation. Confirm that you want to archive the order.
5. Viewing Archived Orders:
If you ever want to see your archived orders, you can still access them:
- Go to “Accounts & Lists” on the top right corner.
- In the dropdown menu, select “Your Account”.
- Scroll down to the “Ordering and shopping preferences” section.
- Click on “Archived Orders”. Here, you’ll see all the orders you’ve archived.
6. Unarchiving an Order:
If you change your mind and wish to unarchive an order:
- Go to “Archived Orders”.
- Locate the order you wish to unarchive.
- Click on “Unarchive Order”.
Archiving an order simply removes it from your default order page, but it remains a part of your account history. It’s a way to keep your main order page uncluttered, but it doesn’t erase the record of the purchase.
If you’re trying to remove an order due to privacy concerns or you don’t want someone to see what you’ve purchased, another solution is to create a new Amazon account and use that for orders you want to keep private.
