How To Find & View Archived Orders On Amazon
Archived orders on Amazon allow you to set aside products you’re interested in (but not yet ready to buy) for later viewing. Why might you want to do this? A few reasons, including:
- hiding orders that may be embaressing.
- keeping gifts a secret if you share your Amazon account with friends, family, children, or significant others.
Note: When you archive an order it doesn’t permanently delete them. It only removes them from your ‘default order history‘ view.
The following are 3 simple steps on how to view archived orders on Amazon.
3 Easy Steps On How To Find Amazon Archived Orders
1. Login To Your Amazon Account
Sign in to your Amazon account using your username & password.
Once you sign in, continue to step 2.
2. View 'Your Orders'
3. View 'Archived Orders'
How Can I Delete Archived Orders On Amazon?
Archiving an order in Amazon is tricky enough. Deleting an archived order is a little more confusing.
Fortunately, the process is simple once you understand what to do. Steps for deleting an archived order in Amazon involve a few simple steps, including:
- Navigate to ‘Your Orders‘ and find which order you want to delete (or hide)
- Click Hide Order
As it stands in 2018, there’s no actual way to delete your archived orders; you can only hide them. Hiding them removes the order from your default order history ‘view’. Hidden items still show up when you search for them, however, so keep this mind if you share your account.
If for whatever reason you need to access previously hidden orders, visit ‘Your Account‘ page and click View Hidden Orders. Additionally, if you need to restore a hidden order back to your default order history ‘view‘, click Unhide Order.
What Does Archiving An Amazon Order Mean - Why Should I Care?
Archive orders on Amazon is a fancy way of saying “saving for later.” Archiving an order allows you to hide your order for a later time. You might want to do this because you’re no longer interesting in referencing this item, you want to hide the item from immediate viewing, etc.
As we mentioned earlier, archiving your order doesn’t delete it permanently. It only removes it from your default order history view tab.
Another way to view your archive order is by visiting Your Account and clicking View Archived Orders.
