About the programme

What are the differences between Amazon Business and Selling on Amazon?
As an Amazon Business seller, you have access to all the features of a Professional seller account with Amazon.it. In addition to Selling on Amazon features, becoming an Amazon Business seller allows you to meet the specific requirements of business customers, offering features optimised for B2B transactions including pricing for certain quantities, business prices and more.
What does it cost to offer products as an Amazon Business seller?
At this time, selling as an Amazon Business seller does not incur additional costs. Selling partners pay the fee for signing up to Selling on Amazon. The option to sell to businesses is included in their subscription.

• Monthly subscription fee, currently €39 (excluding VAT) for Professional selling partners.
• Referral fees, which vary by product group. To learn more, see the Fee Schedule.
When I'm a Business seller, who can purchase my products?

You can also reach business customers directly using a number of unique features, including the option to limit the purchase of listings to business customers only.

Registration

How do I join the Amazon Business seller programme?
Businesses that sign up for a Professional selling account through Amazon Business will receive the benefits of the Business seller programme once registration is complete.
Existing sellers with a Professional selling account can sign up at no additional cost.
How are orders handled by Amazon Business sellers?
To fulfil orders placed on the Amazon Business store, you can choose one of the following three methods:

1. Fulfilment by Amazon: orders are fulfilled by Amazon and your products are shipped from Amazon's state-of-the-art fulfilment centres. Fulfilment by Amazon orders get Prime status.

2. Fulfilment by seller: you fulfil orders directly from your location, following Amazon Business packaging requirements. Prime status does not apply to seller-fulfilled orders.

3. Hybrid approach: many organisations adopt a mixed fulfilment strategy, shipping certain products directly and others through Fulfilment by Amazon.

VAT Calculation Service

What are the advantages of subscribing to the VAT Calculation Service?
Amazon's VAT Calculation Service provides selling partners with tax calculation, VAT invoicing and tax calculation reporting on transactions.

By signing up for our VAT Calculation Service, Amazon Business selling partners will be able to present Amazon Business customers with prices excluding VAT. In addition, their listings will receive the "Downloadable VAT invoice" badge, which indicates guaranteed invoicing to business customers.
Is there an incremental fee to enrol in and use Amazon's VAT Calculation Service?
No. Amazon's VAT Calculation Service is available to all selling partners as long as they meet the basic eligibility criteria.
Is it mandatory to have a VAT number to enrol in Amazon's VAT Calculation Service?
Yes. Selling partners will be required to provide at least one valid European Union VAT number in order to sign up for the service.

Selling partners must provide all European Union VAT numbers associated with their business, including VAT numbers for the countries in which they stock inventory, for example under the Fulfilment by Amazon programme. Storing Fulfilment by Amazon units in a country other than your home marketplace involves additional VAT registration and tax reporting requirements for your business. If necessary, speak to your local tax advisor.
