Can I get the full refund after the returning? As long as your books satisfy the kindle book return policy, you can return your kindle books for a full refund.

Kindle book refund policy: Books you purchase from the Kindle Store are eligible for return and refund if we receive your request within seven days of the date of purchase. Once a refund is issued, you’ll no longer have access to the book.

Please don’t abuse the kindle book return policy in case that your kindle account has been suspended.

Method 1. Cancel the order

If you accidentally buy a kindle book on your kindle, you can easily “cancel the order” on the order confirmation page.

After the kindle book has been ordered, there is an “thank you” page. In this page, please find “Purchased by accident? CANCEL ORDER”. Just click on the “CANCEL ORDER” link to reverse the purchase and this book will be returned. You’ll get the full refund finally.
