Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.

How do I turn off Amazon digital order 1-click?

Oh man I clicked a button and all of a sudden I bought a an MP3 cd.

I was clicking around and thought I was going to put something into a cart of some sort when all of a sudden it comes and tells me "Thank you for your order" and wants me to download some stuff I don't want.

I am going to see if they can get rid of this for me since I won't be downloading it (don't want it, no interest) but how can I turn off this silly one click to buy MP3s on Amazon? My 1-click settings in my profile is set to OFF so why is it going this for MP3s?

Any ideas? I don't want to be clicking things and spending money like this.

    I believe 1-click is permanently turned on for MP3s (maybe to take advantage of what just happened to you?)

    I hate when that happens. The same happened to me as well, I was pissed.

    The solution is to go here and delete all credit card information stored for your account.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/css/account/cards/view.html

    Then they will have no card to charge on, and therefore can't bill you. it's a bit of a pain (since now you have to enter your card info whenever you place an order), but it prevents this nonsense.

    EDIT: Note that, due to Amazon's OneClick nonsense, when you make a purchase you may need to go back to the link above and delete your card information again. Every time. Make sure to do it, or they'll silently store it and this automatic purchasing will be back again.

    I guess if that's the only way then that's what I will do.

    Pretty poopy of them to do that, but I did get a refund after calling India so it didn't end up to terribly.

    Aye, I definitely don't like their one click ordering... I can see how it's convenient, but it's also dangerous for just that reason. (at which point it becomes extremely inconvenient =) )

    Glad you got your money back though!
