Amazon Business offers quantity discounts, exclusive pricing, and streamlined procurement, and now with Business Prime Duo, fast, free delivery on business purchases
Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) Amazon Business, the Amazon B2B procurement store, today announced that Business Prime Duo, previously $69 per year, is now free for Amazon Prime members who also purchase for businesses. Business Prime Duo is an Amazon Business membership that helps small-business owners by bringing together business buying tools and access to business-only pricing on select items, alongside fast, free business delivery. Now small-business owners can access Business Prime Duo as part of their Prime membership—at no additional cost—alongside the savings, convenience, and entertainment benefits they already know and love from Prime.
“We work with a variety of small-business customers, ranging from salon owners and mechanics, to health care providers and restaurant owners. Each of our small-business customers have very different business buying needs, and Amazon Business is committed to providing them with the resources and tools they need to streamline their buying and save money, so they can focus on what matter most – helping their customers and growing their business,” said Todd Heimes, director of Amazon Business Worldwide. “Free access to Business Prime Duo with a Prime membership is another way Amazon Business supports small businesses at every stage of their journey.”
“With the new addition of Business Prime Duo as a free offer for Prime members, there’s no better time to be a member,” said Jamil Ghani, vice president of Amazon Prime. “Getting everything Prime members want and need, quickly and reliably with everyday savings, has always been our focus. Small-business owners who are Prime members can now magnify those savings and conveniences even more when shopping for their business.”
With Amazon Business and Business Prime Duo, small business owners can keep their personal and business expenses separate, while still enjoying fast, free delivery and the many other benefits of Prime. Separating business and personal accounts can help track business spending, and streamline accounting and taxes. Additionally, Amazon Business customers have access to business-only pricing and quantity discounts on eligible products.
In addition to the benefits they enjoy as Amazon Prime members, small-business owners who sign up for Amazon Business and Business Prime Duo will enjoy:
- Fast, free delivery on business purchases: Free One and Two-Day Delivery on tens of millions of items, and free Same-Day Delivery on eligible items in more than 90 metro areas, helping small businesses get what they need when they need it.
- Convenient business delivery: Members can choose their own "Amazon Day" to receive eligible orders on the same day each week, where available, so they can be around to receive their package whether at work or home. Reliable delivery means customers can focus more time toward growing their small business, knowing when those shipments will arrive. Additionally, members can choose Consolidated Shipping on eligible large orders to receive items in the fewest packages and deliveries.
- Free survey and analytics tools: Members can uncover insights to help inspire customer loyalty and drive business growth with survey tools provided by Delighted.
- 5% back or 90-day terms: With the Amazon Business Prime American Express card, members can take advantage of 5% back or 90 days to pay interest-free on U.S. purchases at Amazon Business. Terms and conditions apply.
Prime members can sign up for Business Prime Duo by creating a free Amazon Business account using a different email address than their Amazon.com account, and verifying their status as a business. They can then link their existing Prime membership to their new Amazon Business account and start enjoying the perks and features of Business Prime Duo for free.
Current Amazon Business customers can access free Business Prime Duo when they link their personal Amazon.com account with an active Prime membership to their Amazon Business account. Current Business Prime Duo members will be reimbursed for the remainder of their pre-paid yearly membership, with the refund calculated based on the months elapsed since their last renewal.
