Chances are when you started your business you had very little money to invest. Most businesses start out on a shoe string budget and have lots of places to spend it on basic necessities. You can’t build a house without necessities such as hammers, nails and construction materials. In business that’s computers, printers, Office Equipment, Etc. A lot of us turn to Amazon to find the best deals, but are you sure you are getting the most for your money through Amazon?
It’s no secret Amazon is one of the largest online shopping places for buyers. They are known for their competitive pricing, customer service and delivery. In addition to individual consumers, business can shop on Amazon as well for their office supplies and other business related purchases.
Maximizing your saving
If you buy for your business, Amazon has a special program for you. I consider it Amazon’s best kept secret for business buyers. The program is called “Amazon Business.”
No cost to start saving money
It’s a free program available for any size business – large or small. By signing up for Amazon Business you’ll have access to exclusive prices, discounts, shipping and payment offers not available to individual account users. Besides you’ll save time by shopping multiple offers from a variety of sellers at one time.
Here are a few of the benefits of an Amazon Business account:
- Exclusive business products, pricing and discounts
- Business only prices- exclusive pricing only offered to business buyers
- Quantity pricing – exclusive price breaks for multi-unit purchases
- Business only products – there is a growing number of products that are being offered exclusively to business buyers
Here is an example of a case of paper comparison, the consumer side verses the special pricing for business buyers. Note, the price difference along with the delivery date.
