About the programme

What are the differences between Amazon Business and Selling on Amazon?
As an Amazon Business seller, you have access to all of the features of a professional selling account with Amazon.co.uk.

How much does it cost to list products as a Business seller?
Currently, there are no additional fees for selling as a Business seller. Sellers pay the fee to register for Selling on Amazon and selling to businesses is included in their subscription.

• Monthly subscription fee, currently €39 (excl. VAT) for Professional Sellers.

How do I join the Amazon Business seller programme?
Businesses that register for a Professional Selling Account through Amazon Business will receive the benefits of the Business Seller programme upon registration completion.
Existing sellers with a Professional Selling Account can join at no additional cost.
How are orders fulfilled by Amazon Business sellers?
You can adopt one of three approaches to fulfilling orders placed on the Amazon Business Marketplace:

1. Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) – Orders are fulfilled by Amazon and your products are shipped from state-of-the-art Amazon fulfilment centres. Orders fulfilled through FBA achieve Prime status.

2. Merchant fulfilment – As the name suggests, you fulfil orders directly from your own facility, following the Amazon Business packaging requirements. Prime status does not apply to merchant-fulfilled orders.

3. Hybrid approach – Many organisations use a mixed fulfilment strategy, shipping certain products directly and others through Fulfilment by Amazon.

VAT Calculation Service

What are the advantages of enrolling into the VAT Calculation Service?
Amazon’s VAT Calculation Service provides sellers with tax calculation, VAT invoicing and transactional tax calculation reporting functionality.

By signing up for our VAT calculation service, Amazon Business sellers will be able to view VAT-exclusive prices for Amazon Business customers. In addition, their offers will receive a “Downloadable VAT Invoice” badge that indicates the invoice promise to business customers.
Is there an additional fee for enrolling and using the Amazon's VAT Calculation Service?
No, Amazon’s VAT Calculation Service is available to all sellers as long as they meet the basic enrolment criteria.
Is it mandatory to have a VAT registration number to join Amazon's VAT Calculation Service?
Yes – Sellers will be required to provide at least one valid European Union (EU) VAT registration number in order to sign up for the service.

Sellers should provide all EU VAT registration numbers associated with their business, including VAT registration numbers for the countries within which they store inventory, e.g. as part of the FBA programme. Storing FBA units in a country outside your home-marketplace country will trigger additional VAT registration and reporting obligations for your business. Please consult your local tax advisor for guidance, as necessary.
