How to find archived orders on Amazon

You can hide them, but archived Amazon orders are easy to find.

Published onApril 6, 2024

Many people share an Amazon account with their spouse, significant other, or relatives. This has lots of advantages, such as being able to share an Amazon Prime account or Kindle books, but it can also have its downside. The main one is that everyone will be able to see what you order on Amazon. If it’s a secret birthday present or something embarrassing, that may not be information you want to have leaked out. The solution? Archiving orders. But sometimes you want to be able to check order details. Where do these archived orders go? Here’s how to find archived orders on Amazon.


Archiving an Amazon order is as simple as clicking Archive Order on the product description on your order page. To find those orders again — and unarchive them if you wish — drop down the filter box, and the last option is Archived Orders. Select that to see everything that was previously archived.

How to find archived orders on Amazon

Where did your archived orders on Amazon go? Sometimes, we need to check out order details, or maybe you wish to re-order the same item. Whatever the case, we can help you find those orders you have hidden away.

  1. Go to and log into your account.
  2. Click on Returns & Orders, in the top-right corner of the page.
  3. You will be welcomed by the Orders tab. Right above the orders, you will find a drop-down button that can help you filter your orders by time. Click on it.
  4. There will be an Archived Orders option all the way to the bottom. Click on it.
  5. All your archived orders will show up.

You can also unarchive an order and bring it back into the normal order history by clicking the Unarchive Order link on each order.

Also, note that archived orders do not appear in the Your browsing history at the bottom of the front page.

You can also try searching for the product

While many who want to keep archived orders secret see this as a downside, there is another way to find these hidden purchases. You can simply go to your orders and use the search function to look for whichever product in your archived orders.

  1. Go to and log into your account.
  2. Click on Returns & Orders, in the top-right corner of the page.
  3. Find the text box that reads Search all orders. Type in the product you want to find.
  4. Click on Search Orders.
  5. Your archived order with this product should show up.


No, it is still there. It has just been moved to a different section of your account, hidden away from plain view.

Archiving or finding an archived Amazon order can only be done on the desktop website, not the phone app.
