Go to Manage Your Kindle, find the book, and click Actions and find return for refund. You have seven days from when you bought the book to do so.

I don't see how that is possible. If you already have the "book", you can't buy it again. Do you mean that you found another (ASIN) copy of the same title?

*sigh* I just found I did the same thing. I was unaware of the ASIN thing. I bought two of the book. I did not notice until after the 7 day period was up. Called Ammy and they fixed it, refunded my money and made things right again. Love Ammy.

It's actually pretty easy to do. A lot of books have more than one ASIN. I buy books and store them so if you bought it quite awhile ago, especially in a series, you think it looks good.

I'm very careful now, I check the MYK page for authors before I buy anymore.

I'm usually pretty careful; I check my Calibre library before buying anything.

However, just a couple of days ago I bought a duplicate after carefully looking through my library-sorted-by-author for the name of the series main character! It wasn't until I bought the book, added it to Calibre, and then re-sorted that I noticed my error. Fortunately I add my books to Calibre as soon as I buy them, so I was well inside the return window.

it's easy! I bought a book for my friend twice. I used BACK on my browser to take me to the recommended titles again and accidentally PURCHASED again.

My purchases are not showing in the 'Manage my Kindle" section. Is this because they were both purchased for the same friend? Does anyone know if I can still reverse the one order?

Well, yeah. They're not yours. You gifted them. They're not in your archive.

Check your digital orders.
