• Business pricing and quantity discounts: Sellers can offer exclusive pricing to business customers and set quantity discounts when businesses purchase larger quantities.

Products using FBA are included in Amazon Prime, making them eligible for Unlimited One-Day Delivery for Prime customers. With Amazon Business, products using FBA are also eligible for Free One-Day Delivery to all business customers on qualified orders of £30 or more.
Amazon Business announced its UK launch in April 2017, following its launch 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.
Amazon Business launched in Germany in December 2016, with more than 50,000 business customers now using Amazon Business and over 10,000 business sellers having accessed the Amazon Business Seller feature set to sell their products to business customers.
Since the US launch, Amazon Business has shipped to business customers in more than 60 countries through the US and German websites.
Speaking at the UK launch, Mike Mitchell, Founder of MMP Living commented: "We've been using Amazon Business in the US – which has been a great growth opportunity for us as we’ve historically been a consumer focused business – and with the success of Amazon Business we started sourcing products to satisfy growing demand from businesses, We’ve developed our offering of catering equipment for bars and restaurants, and educational products for schools, all of which we supply through Amazon. We recently launched in Germany on Amazon Business and are now very excited to start selling in the UK.”
