Probably you have fallen in love with BestBuy or eBay and therefore, you don’t want to continue ties with Amazon, right? Ok, for whatever reason (let’s not delve into the reason), you want to delete an Amazon account permanently.
Nobody has any objection if you cut ties with Amazon; however, given so many advantages, everybody is curious here. My apologies! I am again fumbling for reasons. But before you delete your Amazon account forever, you will lose many excellent services, including your Prime Membership. So go ahead carefully and close Amazon account by following two simple methods.
How to Delete Amazon Account Permanently
We have explained two easy methods: delete Amazon account on phone and delete Amazon account 2017 on desktop computer.
A word of caution:
Think twice before following the steps to delete Amazon account. You cannot access your Amazon.com credentials to use Amazon’s international sites like Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.ca, Amazon.in and more. When you delete Amazon account, you also cancel Amazon Prime free trial membership (if any) automatically. Your Amazon Gift Card balance will be lost; all your access to Kindle eBooks, Amazon videos, music library, digital software and games and other digital contents will be deregistered. You will also lose access to your Amazon account history, reviews you have written, discussions, photos and more.
