Amazon has one of the largest ebook ecosystems in the world and with millions of books, sometimes you can buy the wrong one. Many books have the same title, but different authors. It is quite easy to make a mistake like this and luckily there is an ease way to return the book, automatically and get a refund. Just make sure you don’t read 10% of the book, or you won’t be able to get a refund.
How to return a Kindle book
It’s easy to return a Kindle book. Head over to the Amazon website in any web browser and log in to your account if needed. Then click Account & Lists at the top of the page. On the Your Account page, click Your Orders.
Here you can see a list of everything you’ve ordered from Amazon. Click the Digital Orders tab at the top of the page and find the mistakenly ordered book near the top of the list. Select Return for refund.
You may be asked to provide a reason for the return. Use the Choose a response drop-down menu to explain why you want to return it, and then click Submit.
That’s all there is to it. You should be issued a prompt refund—it might take up to five days for credit card purchases—and the book will be removed from your Kindle library.
As you can see, returning a book and getting a refund is easy, sadly you can’t do it directly on a Kindle e-Reader, Kindle app or a Fire Tablet. Instead, you will have to use your internet browser.
