How Do I Cancel My Target Order?

This article discusses cancelling an order from Target. The instructions provided work for both cancelling an entire order and for cancelling a single item from the order. Detailed instructions are given for making the cancellation. An alternative for what to do if the cancellation window has already closed is also provided.

If you have purchased something with Target's online order option and realize that you need to cancel part or all of your order then read on. You will learn how you cancel the items if the cancellation window for the order has not passed, and what you can do if it has.

Cancel the Order Using the Target App

  1. Open the Target app on your mobile device.
  2. Go to the View Purchases page.
  3. Select the order that you want to cancel.
  4. Select Cancel Items. This option will only be available if your items have not been processed for shipping.
  5. Select the items you want to cancel.
  6. Select a reason for the cancellation.
  7. Select Cancel Items.

Cancel the Order Using

  1. Go to Target's home page.
  2. Log in to your Target account.
  3. Go to View Purchases.
  4. Select the order containing the items you wish to cancel.
  5. Select the items you wish to cancel.
  6. Select Request Cancellation. This option will only be available if your items have not been processed for shipping.
  7. Select a reason for the cancellation.
  8. Select Cancel Items.

After following the steps given above, you will receive an email from Target confirming the cancellation. You won't ultimately be charged for any items you canceled, but your account may show a temporary authorization hold until Target has finished processing your cancellation. Your funds will be available again once the hold has been released.

If the Cancellation Window Has Passed

If your order has already been processed for shipping then it is too late to cancel it. However, you can refuse the order once you receive the delivery. When Target receives the refused order, they will process it as a return and send you a refund afterward.

If you have any questions about the cancellation process, you should contact Target's customer service department. It has phone, email, and help desk options.
