Can You Create Amazon Account Without Phone Number

If you do not want to give your phone number to Amazon when creating an Amazon account, you do not have to. Attaching a phone number to your Amazon account is entirely optional.

When you create an Amazon account and get to the step where you need to provide a phone number, you will see a small Skip below where you type in your phone number.

You can bypass adding your phone number to your Amazon account by clicking Skip. The only things you are missing out on by not providing your phone number are not being able to have an SMS code sent to your phone when you log in and not being able to receive text updates about your orders, shipping progress, or any deals on items you have saved in your carts and lists.

All of these updates will instead be given to your email since an email is required to create an Amazon account.

However, you might not want to attach your phone number to your Amazon account because you do not want constant texts to be incoming from Amazon on your phone.

So, while you can create an account without using a phone number, you will have to attach a phone number once you order something on Amazon. When you go to place an order on Amazon, you have to give a shipping address.

Along with this address, you have to put a phone number in. This number does not necessarily have to be your phone number. If you did not attach a phone number when you created an account, you will not receive any updates sent to the said number.

Even when you add a number to your shipping address, this number is not attached to your account. It is only used with your shipping address. If you do not put a number into this section, you cannot place an order that needs to be shipped.

If you are purchasing something that is not a physical object, such as an E-Book to your Kindle Account, you do not have to use a phone number.

Otherwise, you do have to put your number into your shipping address to be able to order a physical object that needs to be shipped.

Another instance where you will need to use your phone number, no matter what, is if you are creating a business account on Amazon. If you are making a business account on Amazon, this means you are using Amazon to sell a product.

When you make this type of account, you have to verify who you are via a phone number.

This is because Amazon needs to have a fast way to contact you with any issues with your business account, and it makes it much easier for any customers to get in contact with you for any questions they have about your products or any other reason they may need to talk to you.

This is the only instance where you need to provide your phone number to create an account. If you are making a regular Amazon account, you do not need to provide your number until you place an order.
