If you buy someone a gift on Amazon, you can also give them a gift receipt in case you get the size, color, or anything else wrong. That way, they can return and exchange it without having to involve you. Here’s how to send them a gift receipt.
Fortunately, you can send a gift receipt both during and after a purchase. We’ll show you how to do both.
Note: Using a gift receipt doesn’t change Amazon’s returns window. The recipient will need to return the gift within 30 days of receiving it.
Giving a Gift Receipt at the Time of Purchase
When you buy something on Amazon, you have a few options to mark something as a gift.
On the purchase page, check the “Add a Gift Receipt for Easy Returns” checkbox.
Or in your Shopping Cart, check the “This Is a Gift” checkbox.
Or at checkout, click “Add Gift Options”.
Whichever option you take, you’ll be presented with the Add Gift Options screen when you checkout. To add a gift receipt, check the “Email the Recipient a Copy of Their Gift Receipt After the Gift Is Delivered” checkbox, add their email address, and then click “Save Gift Options and Continue.”
Finish your order and then, after the gift is delivered, they’ll receive a gift receipt they can use to return it if they want.
Giving a Gift Receipt After the Purchase
If you don’t check any of the many gift checkboxes when you buy someone a gift, you can still send them a gift receipt later if they need one.
Head to Amazon and click “Returns & Orders” in the top-right of the page.
Find the order you want a gift receipt for and click “Share Gift Receipt”.
Then you have two options. Click “Share Gift Receipt,” copy the link, and send it to the recipient using SMS, email, or whatever else you like.
Alternatively, you can click “Download PDF” and either email them the PDF file or print it off and give it to them.
Then they’ll be able to return the gift just like any other product purchased from Amazon.
