Launched on 4th April, Amazon Business is a new service for online merchants and brands wanting to sell a wide range of products including office supplies, laptops, office furniture, industrial tools and laboratory kits to other companies and institutions. Paul Watson, CEO, Volo Commerce comments: “We have been preparing for Amazon Business for some time. Having seen its remarkable growth in the US, we knew this could be a great opportunity for British merchants as well. Our platform has been geared up to support the new service in advance, ensuring that new and current customers can maximise this opportunity right from its launch in the UK. The growth potential for businesses that want to take on this opportunity is huge.” According to the Office for National Statistics, the UK online market for B2B is valued around £96.5bn. Amazon Business first launched in the US in April 2015. It serves over 400,000 businesses and has generated over $1bn in sales in its first year of activity. Online retailers interested in this new service can simply sign up for a dedicated B2B account or add the new features to their existing account. Merchants can offer their goods either inclusive or exclusive of VAT, and can cancel at any time by opting out. Amazon Business also provides access to additional pricing, business profiles and brand-building features to reach procurement professionals. Features like Business-Only Offers, Quantity Pricing and the ability to list credentials give Amazon Business sellers tools to drive growth and further enhance their product portfolio. At the same time, Amazon Business sellers can take advantage of tiered referral fees that result in a lower fee percentage when business customers buy in bulk.
