If you don’t want others to see what you ordered earlier, here are the steps you should follow to hide the Amazon order history.
When it comes to online shopping, there is nothing that beats Amazon. From toothpick to expensive PC components, you can find almost anything. Of course, all this assuming you can effectively navigate the product and suggestions pages on Amazon. After finding the product you want to buy, you are just two clicks away from purchasing.
Typically, when you buy something from Amazon, the purchase order is listed on the Orders page. The orders page acts as a central place to manage all your orders and contains additional options like cancelations, invoice download, delivery tracking, etc. As good as it is, there might be situations where you need to hide purchases and order history in Amazon. This is especially true when you are sharing the Amazon account with others. For example, maybe you bought something for your significant other or a family member and don’t want the surprise ruined just because they saw your amazon order history.
No matter the reason, if you ever want to, follow the steps below to hide order history on the Amazon orders page.
Hide Orders in Amazon Order History
To hide an amazon order on the order history page, you have to archive it. Once archived, it will be removed from the regular order history page and moved to the Archived Orders. Here’s how you can do that.
- First, open the Amazon website in the browser of your choice.
- Log into your Amazon account if needed.
- After logging in, click on the “Return & Orders” option. You can find it on the right side of the top navigation bar.
- Once you are on the Order History page, find the order you want to hide.
- After finding the order, click on the “Archive Order” button.
- Click on the “Archive Order” button in the confirmation pop-up.
That is all. As soon as you confirm the action, the order will be moved from the regular Order History page to the Archived Orders page. Since the order is no longer on the Order History page, the Amazon purchase is effectively hidden.
If you want to see the archived orders, select the “Archived Orders” option from the “year” dropdown menu appearing right above the order history in the “Returns & Orders” page.
To unhide the order, you have to remove it from the Archived Orders page. To do that, click on the “Unarchive Order” button. As soon as you click the button, the order will be moved from the Archived Orders page to the regular Order History page.
That is all. It is simple to hide Amazon’s purchase order history. If you are stuck or need some help, comment below and I will try to help as much as possible.
