Amazon Business France – Launched Today

Amazon Business today announced its launch in France -- a new service bringing the convenience of the Amazon shopping experience to all professional buyers.

The main features for business include pay by invoice, free premium shipping, VAT-exclusive price display, multi-user accounts and the opportunity to reflect internal approval workflows.

This latest move now places France alongside the United Kingdom and Germany – the two other European countries where Amazon Business has launched. Professional purchasing officers at companies in these countries can now purchase business supplies from the 250 million product list, and access the range of business-tailored features that Amazon Business offers.

As the Head of Amazon Business on says: “With this launch, is much more convenient for business users because we added features that make buying for work easy and convenient. New business-tailored features such as Pay by Invoice, multi-user business accounts with integrated approval workflows will enable business users to simply improve their entire purchasing processes. Amazon Business brings the combination of wide selection, premium shipping and attractive prices that customers have come to know and love about Amazon.”

Also attractive to sellers, as well as the added B2B benefits, Amazon Business offers the VAT Calculation Service. This is free to use and automatically creates VAT invoices on behalf of the seller for all their Amazon orders. And according to the press release sellers can also use Fulfilment by Amazon to store their products in Amazon’s fulfilment centres. As sales are made, Amazon picks, packs and ships the products on behalf of the seller.

Our analysts will be sharing their thoughts soon on what's next for Amazon Business and the impact of today’s announcement on existing business buying practices in the region.
