Amazon Business gives you, among other things, access to a customizable product catalog, one-business-day delivery, 30-day invoice payment, and the ability to authorize your employees to make purchases directly. We also point out that the creation of an Amazon Business account is free and that, until October 5, you will benefit from a 20% reduction on your first order (advantage capped at 20 euros).
With Amazon Business, you benefit from the same services as on the general public version of the merchant site: a catalog of 250 million products, free delivery in one working day from 25 euros of purchases and competitive prices. But you could also benefit from specific advantages and tools that will make your job much easier, whether you are a self-employed entrepreneur, a VSE, an SME or a large company.
The Amazon Business account is free
An email address is enough to create an Amazon Business account. You can even convert your personal Amazon account to a Business account and transfer Amazon Prime benefits there if you are a subscriber. It takes approximately three business days after registration for your Amazon Business account to be validated. After that, you can make your purchases by taking advantage of the devices reserved for pros:
- An exclusive selection of professional products for Amazon Business customers;
- Prices displayed excluding tax;
- Payment by invoice within 30 days or by credit card;
- The ability to compare prices;

Delegate purchases while controlling your expenses
One of the specificities of Amazon Business is that you can authorize collaborators to make purchases directly through your professional account. All you have to do is add them, specifying the permissions they have. You can also create groups, set spending limits beyond validation is necessary, limit purchases to certain categories of products or sellers and even keep the final validation on an order. Of course, you have the right to return a product in order not to keep what you need. Finally, with the Amazon Business Analytics dashboard, you can produce detailed purchase reports by defining your own monitoring indicators.
