Since we first launched Amazon Business in 2015, it has been our mission to help businesses, both our buying customers and selling partners, save time and money by shopping and selling smarter. For business customers – from sole proprietors and SMBs to large corporations – that means helping them discover, manage and engage with a wide range of suppliers. For suppliers, it means helping them to reach more customers and expand their businesses in ways that they never could before.
With all that in mind, we launched the Amazon Business blog to showcase the many ways to do business better on Amazon Business. Today, we are announcing the launch of the new Amazon Business blog with even more features and original content designed to help you get the most out of Amazon Business. By providing insight into what’s new on the site, along with product tips, customer stories and more, we hope that the newly ehnanced blog helps with our overall goal of offering customers a faster and more convenient way to discover new features and unique benefits, tailored to the needs of businesses.
Amazon Business combines the selection, convenience and value customers have come to know and love from Amazon, with new features and unique benefits tailored to the needs of businesses. Business customers told us that they love the convenience of shopping online and that they want a B2B buying experience similar to how they shop at home. That’s exactly what we’ve given them with Amazon Business.
Now with localized versions in seven countries outside of the U.S.: United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and India, Amazon Business offers access to hundreds of thousands of business sellers and hundreds of millions of products to millions of business customers across industries, around the world. In 2018, we reached $10 billion in global annualized sales and launched Business Prime in US/DE/JP. In the U.S. alone, Amazon Business serves:
- 80% of the 100 largest enrollment education organizations
- 55 of the Fortune 100 companies
- More than half of the 100 biggest hospital systems
- More than 40% of the 100 most populous local governments
Looking ahead, we will continue to listen to our customers and selling partners and remain focused on innovating on their behalf to deliver the features they need to be successful. We look forward to sharing news of those innovations and the stories of how our customers and business partners are using Amazon Business to grow and streamline their businesses.
