Small-business owners now get Business Prime Duo for free with their Prime membership
Amazon Business offers quantity discounts, exclusive pricing, and streamlined procurement, and now with Business Prime Duo, fast, free delivery on business purchases
LONDON — June 27, 2023 — Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) Amazon Business, the Amazon B2B procurement store, today announced that Business Prime Duo, previously £40 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:
Unlimited fast, FREE shipping on millions of eligible items, with no minimum order. Business Prime gives you the same fast, free delivery you’ve come to love on your personal account. Choose your own “Amazon Day” to get eligible orders on the same day each week where available or choose Consolidated Shipping on eligible large orders to receive your items in the fewest packages and deliveries.
Third party benefit provided by Delighted. Free tools to send surveys to your customers through email, web, SMS, POS kiosk, and other integrated services. Uncover insights that inspire customer loyalty and drive business growth.
