How to hide an Amazon order from your purchase history

Amazon keeps track of all your orders and lists them on theĀ Your Orders history page. From here, you can reference your purchases, return items, leave feedback, and more.

However, there are situations when you might want to hide some orders from this area. For example, you may not want your spouse to see the gift you have ordered for them. Or you may like to prevent sensitive purchases from coming to people’s attention with whom you have shared your Amazon account details, like your spouse, kids, or siblings.

If you’re in a situation where you need to make a purchased item disappear from your order history, here’s how to hide or archive an order on Amazon.
