Amazon is arguably the biggest e-commerce platform worldwide as it caters to hundreds of millions of consumers and also provides a platform to a few million sellers online. If you’ve got yourself into a habit of ordering things on Amazon, chances are that your trips to the local supermart have reduced significantly.
One of the coolest features that Amazon provides to its shoppers is the order history list that allows you to not only track your package but also return it or leave a feedback to the seller.
Now if you’ve ordered a gift for your better half or kid and share the same Amazon account with them, most likely your surprise will be spoiled as even they can check out your order history through their device. In such a case, or whatever your reason may be, if you want to delete your Amazon order history I’ll have to regrettably share with you that doing the same isn’t possible.
Yes, Amazon doesn’t allow its shoppers to delete the order history, but like most of the things on the internet, there is a simple workaround to removing your Amazon order history from the usual list that can be accessed via the homepage.
In this article, we’re going to guide you through the process of removing or deleting your Amazon order history by using the archive tool on the site.
