Can you remove an Amazon order from your history?

If you bought something on Amazon.com that you don’t want to show in your order history, you can’t delete it, but you can hide it using the “archive” feature. We’ll show you how.

Can I delete an order on Amazon.com?

Short answer: you can’t completely delete an order from your history. It is currently not possible to truly remove an order you placed through Amazon from your purchase history. The only alternative is to “archive” the order, which allows Amazon to hide the order from your main order history. Even if archived, the order will still remain in the Amazon system (associated with your account) and can be seen on the Archived Orders page through the Amazon.com desktop website.

Be aware that if someone knows how archived orders work and has access to your Amazon account, they may find hidden orders. This means that archiving is not a reliable way to hide the purchase history of anything on Amazon. To do this, you need to start using a new Amazon.com account and deactivate the old one. Even after deactivation, it is possible (maybe even likely) that Amazon.com will always keep a record of everything your deactivated account has ever purchased on the site.

So here’s the moral of the story: don’t buy sensitive items with your main Amazon account – or an account you share with other people – because those purchases will likely follow you for as long as you support this account.

How to Hide Amazon Orders Using the Amazon Website

At the time of this writing, you will need to visit the Amazon website in a browser (desktop or mobile) to hide orders using the archived order feature – it is not supported on the official Amazon apps on iPhone, Android, or iPad.

To get started, open your favorite web browser and visit amazon.com . Then sign in to the Amazon account that includes the order you want to hide. In the upper right corner of the page, click Returns and Orders.

You will see a list of all the orders you have ever placed on Amazon.com with that account. Find the order you want to hide from the list. When you find it, click “Archive order” located in the lower left corner of the order information window.

When asked to confirm in the pop-up window, click Archive Order.

After that, the order will disappear from the main list of orders. It will still show up in the Archived Orders section of your account, which you will see in the section below. Amazon allows you to archive up to 500 orders.

How to See (and Hide) Hidden Amazon Orders

To show (or display) hidden orders, open Amazon.com in a desktop web browser. After logging into your account, click “Account & Lists” on the top toolbar.

In the pop-up menu that appears, click Account.

In “Your Account”, click “Archived Orders”.

In the Archived Orders section, scroll and find the archived order you want to show. Click on the “Unzip Order” link below.

The previously archived order will then reappear in its place in your chronological order history. Good luck and happy shopping!
