How to clear order history on Amazon

If you order a lot of different items on Amazon, your shopping list will be quite long. It may be useful to clear your Purchase History from time to time. This will help you get rid of unnecessary information and hide your purchases from prying eyes.

In fact, you can’t just delete your Amazon purchase history, but there is a trick to hide your purchases so that they simply won’t be visible. This is especially useful if others have access to your computer and you wouldn’t want anyone to see what you’ve bought. For example, if you bought a Christmas present in advance or if you just don’t want anyone to see the list of your recent purchases.

Is it possible to delete your Amazon History

At this time, Amazon has not given users or sellers the option to delete order history on their service. This is to ensure that your order is permanently linked to your Amazon Account so that it can be tracked in the Amazon system.

On the other hand, you can hide your order. Of course, this is not ideal, as those who know about the order archive and have access to your account can easily gain access to it. This will remove the order from your order list, but it will still remain on your account. Amazon has a similar policy with feedback.

To get rid of your order history, you can only create your new account and deactivate your old account. I would recommend not buying sensitive items through your main Amazon account. You can create another account that only you have access to.

How to archive your Amazon order

To archive an order on Amazon you will need to use the desktop version of the service. The thing is that this function is not available in the apps for iPhone, Android, or iPad. So you need to open Amazon with a browser on your computer, and then

  • At the top right of the screen, click on Returns & Orders.
  • A list of your orders will appear in front of you. Under the order, you want to archive, click on Archive Order.
  • In the end, you just need to confirm your decision in the pop-up window. Click on Archive Order.

Your order will be immediately archived. Remember that Amazon only allows you to archive up to 500 orders. If you exceed this limit, you will have to remove some orders from there. You can place any order in the archive without any restrictions.

How to see archived Amazon orders

You will also have to use the desktop version of Amazon from your computer to view your archive orders. You can do this at any time. Once you place an order in the archive it will be immediately displayed there, without any delays. To do this:

  • Click on the Account & Lists button at the top of the screen.
  • In the pop-up menu, click on Accounts.
  • Next, in the pop-up menu, select Archive Orders.

A list of all archived orders in your account will appear in front of you. To return your order back to the list of regular orders you just need to click on the Unarchive Order button under your order. There are no restrictions on pulling orders from the archive either.
