Registration
How do I join the Amazon Business Seller program?
Businesses that register for a Professional Selling Account through Amazon Business will receive the benefits of the Business Seller program upon registration completion.

Get started
Existing sellers with a Professional Selling Account can join at no additional cost.
Can I still use other Amazon Services?
Yes. You can still use any other Amazon service such as Fulfillment by Amazon, Amazon Home Services, or Amazon Payments.
How are orders fulfilled by Amazon Business Sellers?
You can adopt one of four approaches to fulfilling orders placed on the Amazon Business Marketplace:

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

2. Merchant fulfillment – Just like it sounds; you fulfill 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 organizations use a mixed fulfillment strategy, shipping certain products directly and others through Fulfillment by Amazon.
Credentials
Why add my certification?
Certifications attract Amazon Business customers, many of whom are tasked with meeting quality sourcing objectives and corporate social responsibility goals.
How do I add a certification?
Once registered as an Amazon Business Seller, you can choose from a list of accepted certifications, add details about your certification and upload a digital copy of the certificate or provide business identifier number (such as DUNS).
Will Amazon help sellers get certifications?
Amazon is not a certifying body, nor does Amazon provide assistance to obtain credentials. Sellers are expected to determine their own eligibility for a credential and how to best obtain the appropriate supporting documentation, depending on the credential.
How will business customers find seller certifications?
Certifications will be exposed to Amazon Business customers throughout the shopping experience. Additionally, a list of each seller’s certification will be displayed prominently on seller profile pages.
