What are Archived Orders?

Archived orders are the orders that you move to the Archive section of your Amazon account. If you want an order not to be seen by others, you can archive it. Archiving an order moves that order to the Archive section of Amazon, and hence it would not show up in your Order History. This is particularly useful if you wish some of your orders to remain hidden. Those orders will not be a part of your Amazon Order History. If you wish to see them, you can find them from your Archived Orders. I hope now you know what an archived order is. Let us now jump into the topic and see how to find Archived Orders on Amazon.
