What is Amazon Business?
Amazon Business is changing the way companies buy supplies. For most small businesses, buying supplies can be time-consuming and frustrating. Finding the best product at the best price with the most convenient payment terms can be a challenge, especially when they have other tasks that need to be completed. Amazon Business is the solution and brings big benefits to businesses of all sizes and industries.
How does Amazon Business work?
Amazon Business is a business-to-business marketplace that combines selection, convenience and the value customers around the world have come to know and love from Amazon.com, with additional business-specific features including bulk pricing, Pay by Invoice*, downloadable invoices and spend management tools.
In this marketplace, multiple sellers compete for your business orders. It’s like a “reverse auction” where customers save time, money and hassle in the process.
Choice, value and convenience: Amazon Business simplifies the entire purchasing process for businesses by helping them find, compare and order exactly what they need with fast, reliable shipping and flexible payment options. It’s a shopping experience Amazon customers will instantly recognize and understand. Plus, it includes features that are especially helpful for business buyers.
Helpful purchasing tools: Amazon Business gives users access to helpful purchasing controls that can ensure that only authorized purchases are made, together with tools to integrate with their existing purchasing system and provide detailed purchasing analytics.
Free accounts: Unlike warehouse clubs or subscription-based online retailers, Amazon Business accounts are free, even for companies with multiple authorized purchasers. Once registered, those with accounts are able to search hundreds of millions of products in the Amazon Business inventory, where multiple sellers can compete for their business.
