The difference between a free Amazon Account and Amazon Prime
To fully decipher the basic differences between a free Amazon account and Amazon Prime, some features that are exclusive and unique to Amazon Prime would be examined. Some of these unique features are;
Prices of Business related products only: With Amazon Prime, prices of the products related to business items and services only while the Regular Amazon account offers prices related to personal products. Also, organizations that subscribe to Amazon Prime enjoy business pricing and quantity discount on more than five million business items and services.
Availability of vendors’ credentials: Amazon Prime allows the subscribers to search, check out, and shop with vendors and sellers with certain attributes determined by the organization. Attributes like a small business, large business, minority- owned, men-owned, and sorts are what the registered organizations on Amazon Prime look out for. This feature, however, is not available to the subscribers of the regular Amazon.
Business items and services only: With Amazon Prime, products on offer are products related to businesses and organizations only. Specific business items and services from restaurant supplies to IT, from Office to janitorial services, from healthcare services to IT, and many more are offered on Amazon Prime. Contrarily, the regular Amazon offers personal items like shoes, bags, clothes, pieces of jewelry, amongst others.
Multiple account users: The Amazon Prime membership plan allows organizations to replicate their organizational structure on the platform. This is because once an organization registers on Amazon Business, the whole team in the organization can be created in the account, and with the help of the purchasing guide procedure, the purchasing group can be created in the account. But the regular Amazon account does not have this feature.
Approval workflows: You can customize order approvals and set spending limits to not only manage your organization’s returns but also gain visibility into how funds are spent.
Integration of purchasing system: On Amazon Prime, purchasing organizations are allowed to shop for the organization’s business products without leaving the procurement platform. This works by bringing into one space the Amazon Punch-Out catalog and the mechanism of the purchasing system. This integration, therefore, makes the buyer have all-in-one access and makes the purchasing process a lot easier. The regular Amazon does not have this feature.
Tax Exemption: Amazon Prime allows purchasing organizations with tax exemption status to apply for the purchase of some appropriate business products from Amazon, Amazon Services, and every other vendor in the Amazon Marketplace using their tax-exempt status. This reduces the cost incurred by these organizations and makes more funds available for the purchase of more business products. The outcome of this is that the organizations report more profit as the operating cost is lessened. The viability of these organizations boost the financial status of the nation they are domiciled. However, the regular Amazon does not allow individuals to be exempted from taxes on their purchases.
