We are constantly hearing our Amazon Business customers that our prices for business only on such a broad range of products are crucial to resolving their ‘tail spending’ issues, Rohde explained. The cost of tail spend can be expensive and time-consuming for companies since it typically involves managing thousands or even hundreds of suppliers.

Shared payment options include debit cards, credit cards, as well as an Amazon Corporate credit line. Anyone who is authorized to use your account for business can make use of the method of payment that you prefer to purchase products for your company’s account.

And purchase orders by payment as per Rohde. The account also provides easy-to-read reports and no annual fees. Account administrators can manage both individual as well as shared methods of payment. As well as shipping addresses so that ordering is easy for everyone within your business.
