Customer Service page
Go to the Amazon webpage in your browser. Start by clicking the Your Account button at the top of the page.
Within Your Account, click the headset-shaped Customer Service button.
On the Customer Service page, you will see various options, including A delivery, order or return, Prime, and Payment, charges or gift cards. These options indicate what you would like Amazon to help you with. Click on whichever option befits your circumstance.
For this demonstration, we will be going with A delivery, order or return.
Next, you must click on whatever you need help with on the 1. Tell us what you need help with portion of the form. Here, because we selected A delivery, order or return, we selected a past order that we’d like Amazon’s help with.
The second section of the form is called 2. Describe what’s going on. If your goal is to contact their customer service team in real-time about your situation, you can click any of the options underneath. However, to be safe, go with the answer that matches your situation the closest.
On the 3. Get an answer stage, make sure to click I need more help. Your goal throughout this process is to reach this button, as this button will allow you to chat with an actual Amazon representative instead of getting put through more automated answers.
After clicking I need more help, you reach the How would you like to get help? screen. Here, click the Request call now button to get a phone call from Amazon, or click Start chatting now to open up a live text chat with an Amazon representative.
If you’re a Twitter user, you can try messaging @AmazonHelp to get help with your situation.
