Managing your account

You can’t order anything from Amazon without an Amazon account (including the very Kindle Fire you’re using). The Shop app gives you access to some of your account settings. The Shop app concentrates mostly on the order-related functions of your Amazon account, including enabling 1-Click Ordering.

To view and track your orders

  1. Open the Shop app (Home screen > Shop > Shop Physical Products).
  2. Tap the menu icon on the navigation bar.
  3. Tap Your Account.
  4. You may be prompted for your Amazon account password. Enter it and tap Sign In.
  5. Your Account page displays your recent and open (not yet shipped) orders in a scrollable list circle_a.jpg. Swipe up and down to scroll through the list. If you want to filter your orders by a period of time, tap the Open & Recent button and select one of the options circle_b.jpg.

    A picture of the item ordered along with some of the order details are listed, including the price and the date the order was placed. If you need more detail about a specific order, tap Order Details circle_c.jpg. Tap the x to close.

    circle_g.jpg You can change your 1-Click Settings right from your Kindle Fire.

    When 1-Click Ordering is turned on, you do not need to enter your Amazon password when placing an order. The order is also charged to a default credit card and shipped to a default address, so no interaction is required. (1-Click ordered items bypass the shopping cart.) If 1-Click is enabled, there will be a button labeled Turn OFF 1-Click. Tapping it will disable 1-Click on this device and change the button to read Turn ON 1-Click. Tap it again to enable 1-Click.

  6. To change the address and credit card used by 1-Click, tap the Change link. Select an address from the list associated with your Amazon account and a payment method circle_h.jpg. No need to confirm; the setting is changed immediately.
