Amazon is a place where you can buy almost anything if you are in the countries where it is available. They also manufacture electronic book readers called Kindle. Their headquarters is in Seattle, Washington.
Amazon also sells books, music, movies, housewares, electronics, toys, and many other goods, either directly or as the middleman between other retailers and millions of customers. Its Web services business includes renting data storage and computing resources, so-called “cloud computing,” over the Internet. Its considerable online presence is such that, in 2012, 1 per cent of all Internet traffic in North America travelled in and out of Amazon data centres.
Amazon keeps track of everything you ever ordered and you can see your receipts and other things.
There is an option where you can hide your previous orders if you are buying as a gift to someone to keep it a surprise or if you are gettings something personal for yourself.

- For the item that you want to hide, click “Archive Order.”
- Then, click “Archive Order” again.
After that, all of the orders you archived will be hidden from the list.
