A lot of companies make it quite difficult to delete their account and Amazon is among them.
What you need to know before you delete your Amazon account
There are some things that you need to know before deleting your account, your Amazon account is shared across Amazon’s websites so if you delete it, you will lose access to Amazon.com which is also applicable to international stores like Amazon.co.uk and Amazon-owned sites like Audible.com. And you can’t sign into any website you use your Amazon account for.
Your Amazon Payments account will be shut down as well.
Basically, you are going to lose access to everything. All of your open orders will be canceled, subscriptions like Amazon Prime will end immediately and you will lose any Amazon gift card balance in your account.
You will not be eligible to return purchased items for a refund or replacement. The Digital content you purchased will be gone and you won’t have access to redownload Kindle eBooks, Amazon videos, music, digital software and games, and whatever other digital content you might own.
Your account purchase history and customer data will also be deleted by Amazon, so any reviews, discussion posts, and photos you have uploaded to Amazon’s website will also be erased.
The only way to remove your Amazon purchase history is by closing your account and creating a new one but you can archive some of your orders to make them less visible in the list of previous purchases.
You do not have to close your account if you just want to cancel Amazon Prime, change your email address or remove a payment method. You can do every one of these without closing an account but if you really think you have to, then this is what you need to do.
However, Amazon does not give you a straightforward option to delete your account on their website. Instead, you will have to contact their customer service and ask them to do it for you.
