What is Amazon Business?
Amazon Business is a service by Amazon that 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 there are other tasks that need to be completed.
Amazon Business is the solution that 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, with additional business-specific features including bulk pricing, Pay per Invoice*, downloadable VAT invoices and spend management tools.
In this marketplace, multiple sellers compete for purchases on common stock keeping units (SKUs), on the most favourable terms for customers.
It’s like a “reverse auction” where customers save time, money and all the hassle in the process.
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.
Amazon Business gives Choice, Value and Convenience to Businesses of all sizes.
It is the shopping experience Amazon customers will instantly recognise and understand.

Helpful purchasing tools
Amazon Business gives users access to helpful purchasing controls that can ensure that only authorised purchases are made, together with tools to integrate with their existing purchasing system and provide detailed purchasing analytics.
Unlike warehouse clubs or subscription-based online retailers, Amazon Business accounts are free, even for companies with multiple authorised purchasers. Once registered, those with accounts can search hundreds of millions of products in the Amazon Business inventory, where multiple sellers can compete for their purchase.
A quick 2 tips:
If you are a small business and you use things like Norton Antivirus or Microsoft Office…
Instead of going directly and signing up for auto renewal on the Norton website and Microsoft website, buy your yearly subscriptions on Amazon and renew your packages each year on the date of expiry. This works out way cheaper than buying it from the vendor's website on auto renewal.
