Amazon targets B2B sector with new service

Amazon has launched a new service to meet the procurement needs of businesses in the UK, named Amazon Business.

The service provides sellers with a set of features to help drive sales to businesses, including: VAT-exclusive pricing and VAT invoicing; exclusive business offers; business pricing and quantity discounts; and Fulfilment by Amazon where sellers can store their products in Amazon’s fulfilment centres for Amazon to pick, pack, ship and provide customer service for products as sales are made.

Amazon Business launched in the US in April 2015, serving more than 400,000 businesses and generating more than $1bn in sales in its first year, with sellers accounting for over half of the orders. It has also launched in Germany where some 50,000 business customers use the service.
