How Long Can You Keep Items in Your Amazon Cart?

You can keep items in your Amazon cart for about two weeks, although some items in your cart may be out of stock if you leave them in for that long before purchasing them.

Therefore, if there is an item you want to purchase, you should avoid leaving it in your cart too long, especially hot-selling items like video game consoles.

Video game consoles and other hot-selling items can be out of stock within hours, but for everyday household items, you likely won’t run into that problem.

However, the amount of time you can leave items in your Amazon cart will depend on if you’re signed in or browsing as a guest. Guests will have their cart refreshed every 30 minutes.

So, if you want to leave items in your Amazon cart, you should make an account before you proceed so you don’t have to worry about the 30-minute refresh and share your cart.

How Many Items Can Amazon Cart Hold?

Did you know that an Amazon cart can hold 1,000 products in it, but only can hold 50 items if they are different from one another?

However, this is claimed by Amazon users, and there is no official number from Amazon on how many total items your cart can hold or how many unique items it can hold.

To know more, you can also read our posts on what is Amazon Day, what are Amazon warehouse deals, and what is the Amazon Shopper Panel.


You cannot share your cart directly with Amazon and will need to download one of the many browser extensions or plug-ins available, such as Shopping Cart Share or Share-A-Cart.

However, once you’ve downloaded one of these plug-ins, you can quickly share your Amazon cart with family and friends by enabling the add-on and going to your Amazon cart. You can create a unique ID to share your cart or share directly from the third-party extension.
