How to Print an Amazon Receipt
Amazon.com does not offer receipts like you would get at a regular retail store. When you need to print a receipt for a warranty claim, it can be confusing. Right on Amazon's site you can find "If you need a receipt to enclose with the form, print an invoice for your order." This says that Amazon considers the invoice as a receipt.
Now you must figure out how to print an original receipt/invoice for the item you bought on Amazon. If you contact the company that you are needing to make a claim through, you may or may not get any help in finding out how to print another receipt from Amazon. You will, however, get their requirements for what they consider to be an original receipt. If they are willing to allow you to use a duplicate copy of the receipt, then you can use these directions for printing out a receipt for an Amazon.com order.
What You'll Need
Here are a list of things you will need in order to print your receipt/invoice on Amazon.com:
- Your Amazon.com login username
- Your Amazon.com password
- The approximate date of purchase
- The name of the item
- A working printer
Get to Your Account in Amazon
Step One: Go to and Log in to Amazon.com
Your first step is to go to Amazon.com. Then from there you will see the option of "your account" in the upper right of the screen.
If you are already logged in to amazon, then you still want to click the "your account." If you need to, then put in your username (email) and password. Remember, there is a password help if you happened to forget your password. Go to the next step.
Find the Order
Step Two: Click "Your Orders"
Look for "Your Orders," which is toward the middle of the page in an orange colored button with an arrow. You have to click this before you can browse by date, which is what you'll be doing to find your particular item's order invoice.
Step Three: Search for the Item
You have two options for searching for the item. You can use the title and description to find it, or you can use the time of purchase to find the item you are wanting.
It might be a good idea to use the time of purchase feature, since you are dealing with making a warranty claim and you know that it had to be purchased within a certain amount of time.
Click View Invoice
Step Four: View the Invoice
There will be two options for you to choose: "View Order Details" and "View Invoice." You will likely need the invoice for your warranty registration or claim.
Simply click on the "View Invoice," and you will see all the details of your order as you would on a receipt. This is Amazon's version of a receipt.
Step Five: Print the Receipt/Invoice
The obvious last step is to print your receipt on your printer hooked up to your computer, so you will have to make sure it's turned on, paper is loaded, etc. Then you can make as many copies as you need for your warranty claim or warranty registration.
