Amazon Business is Amazon’s solution for businesses to make wholesale/bulk purchases which is not possible with an Amazon personal account. When you have an Amazon Business account you ideally must have logged in to your account on your computer.

Now, what if you want to order something that is for personal use, for instance, a bottle of shampoo, you probably want to use your Amazon Personal account now.

In this article, I will guide you on how you can switch from Amazon Business to personal and cover some pertaining topics like closing your Amazon business account, etc.

Benefits of using an Amazon Business rather than Amazon Personal

  1. You will be able to make purchases that are exempt from sales tax if you upload your reseller’s certificate and purchase items that are exempt from sales tax in your state (such as packaging supplies or items for resale, if applicable in your state).
  1. You may be able to save money by purchasing certain products at a lower “business” price that is accessible only to business accounts.
  1. Amazon will give you the option to “pay by invoice” and give you 30 days to pay for your purchase if you qualify. We don’t use this because we prefer to earn credit card points when we pay with our credit card, but some people like the 30-day option.
  1. You can include your PO number with your Amazon order if you have a business account – many businesses use purchase orders to keep track of purchases.
  1. You will have access to a business account with multiple users, access to payment solutions, workflow approval, dedicated customer care support, business-oriented procuring analytics, free two-day shipping on millions of appropriate items, and a host of other benefits if you have an Amazon Business Account.
