Amazon will be archiving orders older than two year, starting in September this year. According to a post in the Seller Central News section:
"Starting in September 2023, orders older than two years will be archived on a monthly basis.
To ensure data security and a safe customer experience, archived orders don’t contain buyers’ personally identifiable information such as names, phone numbers, addresses, and gift messages.
If you require any buyer information for accounting or tax purposes, make sure that you download it by the end of August, or within two years of the order placement.
Archived orders still contain many other data fields, including purchase date, product name, ASIN, quantity, price, tax, customer charged shipping fee, and sales channel."
The important thing to note here, is that you won't have access to the buyer information details from the archived reports, so if you need that information, you need to navigate to Seller Central, then from the menu access Orders>Order Reports. On this page you can download the information for a maximum of 30 days at a time under the All Orders NEW tab.
You will be able to download the archived orders under the Archived Orders tab if you are not concerned with the buyer information.
Make sure this older information is in your InventoryLab account so that you can reference it later. To do this, follow the instructions in this article:
