Activate the VAT Calculation Service (VCS) to automate your invoicing and display VAT-exclusive prices
Any sale to Amazon Business customers requires an invoice to be sent after the order has been shipped. That's why Amazon created the VAT Calculation Service (VCS), a tool that facilitates this process by fully automating it.
What are the benefits of the VAT Calculation Service (VCS)? • The VAT Calculation Service (VCS) will calculate the VAT for your product and automatically generate VAT invoices on your behalf, which your customers can access directly on their Amazon account. • It will give you detailed information on the calculations and the invoices generated. • It will automatically show tax-exclusive prices on your listings to Amazon Business customers, making your prices more competitive.

Access pricing personalisation tools to set your B2B pricing that only Amazon Business customers can see
Business prices are offers that are lower than your retail prices aimed at encouraging Amazon Business customers to buy your products.
When you set a business price, only registered Amazon Business customers can access this special offer. All Amazon customers will be able to see your products, but only registered Amazon Business customers will be able to benefit from and buy at the business price. All other Amazon customers will see the regular retail price. If you prefer your product to be offered only to Amazon Business (B2B) customers and not directly to consumers (B2C), you also have the option of creating offers exclusively for businesses.
Quantity discounts are set for bulk purchases. You can offer progressive discounts to professional buyers for purchasing larger quantities of items.
