Working With Amazon Business Prices

Business Prices allow you to sell directly to other businesses through Amazon, with the ability to offer special rates to business customers and discounts based on the number of products ordered. 

To use business prices, you need to have an Amazon Business Account. 

Please Note! The Amazon Business Seller Program is currently only available in the .com, .co.uk and .de marketplaces.
Business prices are added to items the same way as the usual Price by Channel with an additional tag specifying price type and are treated the same way as other listing prices. If Price Change is enabled for the channel, the listing will update automatically.

Discounts

Linnworks has the ability to offer discounts for business customers. Discounts can be offered based on the number of units bought. There are two ways of offering discounts:

  • A percentage discount per unit.  If a customer orders 50 or more, then offer a 5% discount on the base unit price; 100 or more units, then offer a 10% discount.
  • A flat discount price for each unit. If the base business price specified is £5.00/unit, then on ordering 50 or more units, the base price can be specified as £4.90/unit. 

To apply these discount rates for bulk sales, please do the following:

  • Go to the Listings Description tab in the Product Details window.
  • If the SKU doesn't have a business price yet, follow the steps above to add it.
  • Click the Rules button.ambusprices1

Adding Business Prices to Listings

When a SKU has a Business Price added to the stock item, it will be added by default when creating a new listing template. If no business price has been set up before listing the product, then it can also be added directly to the template.
