Amazon has launched its new business-to-business (B2B) marketplac, Amazon Business, selling hundreds of millions of products such as traffic signs, industrial deep fryers, 55-gallon steel drums, dent pullers, and IT and lab equipment.

Amazon Business customers will benefit from free two-day shipping on tens of millions of eligible items with orders over US$49, as well as multi-user business accounts, approval workflow, payment solutions, tax exemptions and dedicated customer support. Businesses will also be able to place orders and finance purchases using a pay-in-full or a revolving credit line.

Prentis Wilson, vice president, Amazon Business, said, “We’ve heard from business customers that they love the convenience of shopping online, and want an experience at work that is similar to how they shop at home. Amazon Business delivers a new and expanded marketplace that brings the selection, convenience and value of Amazon to business customers, manufacturers and sellers, with the additional selection, features and back-end integration businesses need to save time and money.

“We’re consistently listening to feedback from customers so we can innovate, deliver more value and set a new standard for B2B e-commerce with Amazon Business. We think this is an experience that businesses will love and a great opportunity for manufacturers and sellers to reach registered business customers. It’s only the beginning for this new marketplace – we will continue to build out features in areas like product support, payments, shipping and pricing.”
