Shopper help > Managing your Amazon account for Amazon Pay

Closing your Amazon account

When an Amazon account has been closed, it cannot be reopened. There is no cost for keeping an Amazon account open; you can leave your account dormant as long as you want without incurring any fees.

If you do decide to close your account, contact Customer Service to request a full account closure. Note that you don't have an Amazon Pay account to close — instead, you can close only your Amazon account.

Later, if you decide you want to use Amazon Pay again, just shop on a third-party website that accepts Amazon Pay, open a new Amazon account, and accept our User Agreement when you check out.
