How to tell if you have an Amazon Business account
To tell if you have an Amazon Business account, go to the Accounts & Lists drop-down menu on the Amazon homepage and select Your Account. On the Your Account page, scroll down to the Ordering and shopping preferences section and look for the Business Settings section. If you see a business information section on this page, it means you have an Amazon Business account.
What are the benefits of an Amazon Business account?
An Amazon Business account is a professional selling account offered by Amazon. With an Amazon Business account, you get access to business features and pricing, including volume discounts and Business Prime Shipping*. You also get exclusive business-only selection and buying features, such as the ability to create lists and approval workflows. If you’re currently selling on Amazon as an individual or professional seller, you can upgrade your existing seller account to a business account.
As an individual or professional seller on Amazon, you have access to some business features, but you’re not able to take advantage of everything that an Amazon Business account offers. For example, you can’t purchase from Business sellers, or take advantage of features like Business Prime Shipping.
What are the drawbacks of an Amazon Business account?
There are a few drawbacks to having an Amazon Business account. First, when you sign up for a business account, you are automatically opted into the professional selling plan. This means you will be charged a monthly $39.99 subscription fee, in addition to other selling fees. You can downgrade your account back to an individual seller account at any time, but you will lose access to business-only features and benefits.
Another downside to having an Amazon Business account is that you are required to maintain a separate seller profile page from your personal account. This can be confusing and time-consuming for customers who want to purchase items from both your personal and business accounts. Finally, business accounts are not eligible for certain Amazon Prime benefits, such as free two-day shipping.
How to upgrade your Amazon Business account
If you have an Amazon Business account, you can upgrade your account to a Professional selling plan on the Account Info page in Your Seller Profile. Upgrading to a Professional selling plan gives you access to features that make it easier to do business on Amazon, including the ability to offer and manage Prime shipping options and subscribe to Amazon Business for continued account access.
If you have an Individual selling plan, you can’t downgrade your account to a Professional selling plan. However, you can cancel your Individual selling plan and create a new Amazon Business account.
How to cancel your Amazon Business account
If you’re no longer using your Amazon Business account, you can close it at any time. This also cancels your professional selling privileges, if you have them. Once your account is closed, you won’t be able to reopen it or use any of its features.
If you want to continue to sell on Amazon but don’t need the features of a Business account, you can downgrade to an Individual seller account. However, if you have a Professional selling plan, you can’t downgrade to an Individual selling plan and will need to cancel your Professional selling privileges instead.
To close your Amazon Business account:
1. From the Accounts & Lists drop-down menu in the upper-right corner of any page, select Your Account.
2. Select Login & security from the Your Account side menu.
3. Next to Close your Amazon Business account, select Close account.
4. Enter your password and then select Continue to close my Amazon Business account.
