Having an account with Wayfair, the online shopping site that sells furniture and other home decor and goods, has certain advantages. The biggest being that it allows you to quickly and easily place and track orders by saving your payment information, shipping addresses, and order history.

But getting rid of your data and deleting your Wayfair account isn't as easy as registering for the site. The company currently has no way for you to delete your account through its user web portal. Instead, you'll need to use a workaround that involves contacting the company directly in an online form and requesting they delete your account and all its associated data for you. You can also call the company's customer service number, 866-263-8325, to request that they delete your account.

Once you send an online request, you should have a response from Wayfair in the coming days. If you don't hear back, phone their customer service line.
