How to Archive Amazon Orders On A Mac Or Pc?

To archive your amazon orders, ensure you use the menu options on your desired browser before performing the steps. e.g., Chrome. It's important to note that the Amazon mobile app does not support the order archiving feature. If you don't have access to a desktop, you'll have to use your mobile browser to view Amazon's desktop site. To archive your Amazon purchases online:

Step 1: Launch your web browser, go to Amazon.com, and log in.

Step 2: Select Orders & Returns from the menu on the top right.

Step 3: Move through the list until you find the order you wish to archive. You can look for it in the search bar.

Step 4: To archive the order, click Archive Order below the item.

Step 5: Select Archive Order once more from the confirmation pop-up that appears.

You'll then see a confirmation message at the very top of the page. When you archive an order, it will be removed from your current order list. Up to 500 of your previous Amazon orders can be stored in an archive. What does this achieve? It will prevent the order from appearing in your order history. It is still recorded and can be viewed. The item simply doesn't reflect in the order history.


How to Archive Amazon Orders On Ios And Android Devices

When using the Amazon mobile app on an Android, iPhone, or iPad device, you will not be able to archive any orders. You'll have to visit Amazon from your mobile browser and then toggle to the desktop site mode. This will make navigation difficult, but you will still be able to archive your orders.

Step 1: Go to Amazon.com from your mobile browser and Log in.

Step 2: Click your Username at the top-right (next to the basket icon).

Step 3: Go to the menu and choose to See All (next to Your Orders).

Step 4: Use the desktop site mode of your browser. Open Chrome, click the menu button (Three dots), and choose Desktop site.

Step 5: You may resize the page with your fingers to make the content more visible.

Step 6: To archive an order, go through it carefully and choose it.

Step 7: Tap the Archive order under the item.

Step 8: If prompted again, tap Archive order in the pop-up to confirm your choice.

All of your account changes will take effect immediately. In the event that you archive an order from your Amazon purchase history using the app, it will stay hidden even if you access your account via a PC.


How to View Archived Orders On Amazon

Archiving orders from your Amazon purchase history will display on your account's Archived Orders page. All past orders are available for perusal right here. You may unarchive items and bring them back into your primary order record. It's just as easy to unarchive orders as it was to archive them. These are the steps that you will need to take in order to complete the process:

Using Your Mobile App

Your mobile app does not allow you to archive orders. However, you may still view them. Here's how:

Step 1: Launch the Amazon app and sign in.

Step 2: Tap the icon with Three lines to show up the menu.

Step 3: Pick Your Orders.

Step 4: Select Archived orders from the Filter

Using Your PC Or Mac 

Step 1: Launch your web browser, go to Amazon.com, and log in.

Step 2: Select Returns & Orders from the menu on the right.

Step 3: In the Orders menu, choose the drop-down menu for the Past 3 Months.

Step 4: Scroll through the drop-down menu and choose Archived orders at the bottom.

Here you may see all the orders you've placed in the past and have since archived. To restore an archived Amazon order to your primary purchase history, choose Unarchive order for a specific order.


How to Restore Archived Amazon Orders 

If you want to restore an archived order, follow the steps above to get to your Archived Orders. Then, go to Amazon's Orders page and find the order you want to restore. Click the Unarchive Order button next to the order. The item and its associated order details will return to your primary order. A notification stating, Your order has been unarchived will pop up. You can find that order on the Your Orders tab.


Clear Your Browsing History Of Archived Orders

If you've previously searched for a specific product, Amazon will use that information to make product recommendations. While this feature makes shopping easier, it also exposes your search history and recently viewed products to anybody who has access to your account.

Step 1: Log into your Amazon account.

Step 2: In the dropdown menu under Accounts and Lists, choose Browsing History.

Step 3: Click the Remove From View button below the item to delete it.

Step 4: Additionally, a single option allows you to delete your entire search history. Click Remove From View after selecting Manage History from the top right corner.

Make sure to disable your browser history after this. This option is located in the dropdown menu next to Manage History. By doing this, Amazon won't be able to gather your browsing data again in the future.


Bottom Line

You cannot archive orders while using the Amazon mobile app on an Android, iPhone, or iPad. You must access Amazon through a mobile browser and then switch to the desktop site mode. The next time you are viewing an order that you have archived, it will appear in the Archived Orders section of Your Orders.

If you haven't archived an order in a while, be sure to choose View Archive from the Archive Orders section. You may see all of your archived orders at once by choosing All Orders from the menu bar on this page!
