Meeting business needs: how Amazon Business differs from Amazon

Amazon Business offers the convenience, control and competitive pricing that businesses need, along with other advantages you’ve enjoyed on Amazon.com.
Chances are you already know the many benefits of shopping on Amazon.com, such as great product selection, competitive pricing and fast shipping, to name just a few.

What you may not know is that Amazon Business offers everything you love about Amazon but is uniquely designed to meet the needs of your business — no matter how big or small. That’s why millions of customers now choose Amazon Business for their organizations.

Let’s look at just three key benefits that Amazon Business offers business customers:
  • 1
    Ease and convenience
    Like Amazon.com, buyers and sellers get unmatched selection and convenience on Amazon Business. Millions of business customers from industries around the world purchase on Amazon Business, including 55 of the Fortune 100 companies, more than half of the 100 biggest US hospital systems, and over 40% of the 100 most populous local governments in the US. Business sellers include hundreds of thousands of manufacturers and distributors across most product categories.

    Multiple user accounts
    While Amazon.com accounts are designed to meet the needs of individual consumers, Amazon Business gives you a greater degree of control over access and approvals. With Amazon Business, you can create purchasing approval workflows and set spending limits for single and multiple user accounts.
  • 3
    Tiered quantity discounts
    While Amazon.com is focused on maintaining competitive prices on every product, sellers on Amazon Business can provide business-only pricing on their products and even offer quantity discounts on bulk orders.
