Now customers can request Amazon Business bulk-buy bids, along with bids from other suppliers, from the Fairmarkit e-sourcing website. Amazon Business’ new Integrated Quoting feature can connect to e-sourcing and e-procurement systems, allowing mutual customers to centralize their Request for Quote activity and select the most competitive bid for their business buying needs.
Integrated Quoting can help business buyers save time and money and increase spend visibility. Eligible bid requests for Amazon Business must be for more than 1000 units of a product or more than rack-rate $10,000 inventory. If Amazon Business’ bid is selected by a customer, Amazon Business delivers their order in alignment with their Need By date.
"What an improvement for our customers! We are not only speeding up and automating the requesting for quotes process, but we will also achieve additional discounts with bulk orders via Amazon Business. It is great that this is fully integrated in our Fairmarkit environment," said Kelly How, Digital Procurement Lead for Amazon Procurement.
Here’s how the buyer moves through the RFQ process within the Fairmarkit environment:
“This new Integrated Quoting feature with Fairmarkit allows Amazon Business to continue meeting integrated customers where they are, simplifying their business buying experiences,” Satya Mishra, Amazon Business’ Director of Product Management, said. “Bulk buying can offer cost savings to customers, and centralizing supplier quotes in integrated systems offers efficiency and scale.”
Buyers can also request quotes directly from the Amazon Business website.
