How to Delete Your Order History on Amazon

So far, Amazon does not allow you to delete your order/purchase history. For those concerned about privacy, however, you do have a couple options. The first is to remember that your order history is private. No one else can access your order history without access to your Amazon account. The other concern may be that your order history can affect your recommendation list, which is public. Removing order items from your recommendation list is possible.

    Search through and find the items you wish to remove from your recommendation list.

Tips and warnings

  • Tip: If you wish to purchase a more private item, it could be helpful to open two separate accounts. This way you could use one privately and one publicly for wish lists or sharing recommendations with friends and family.
