The difference between Prime & Business Prime
Amazon Prime is a membership program that offers the best of shopping and entertainment from Amazon. This includes shopping benefits such as free delivery on eligible items, free 2-hour grocery delivery from Amazon Fresh and Whole Foods Market, exclusive savings, early access to deals, access to special events like Prime Day, try before you buy with Prime Wardrobe, and entertainment benefits that include Prime Video, Amazon Music, Prime Reading, Twitch Prime, and more.
Business Prime is a separate membership program designed specifically for businesses available only on Amazon Business. Amazon Business combines the selection, convenience, and value you expect from Amazon, with features that can help improve your operations. With Amazon Business, you get access to hundreds of thousands of sellers who can offer business-only selection, Quantity Discounts, and access to time-saving features that help you run your business better. With Business Prime, you can unlock the best of Amazon Business. Being a Business Prime member, you and your whole team get access to business-specific features and benefits based on the plan you select. Business Prime benefits include free shipping on eligible items, ability to guide your users to certain selection, visibility into your company’s spend, and more.

Save time come tax season by separating work and home purchasing by tracking business orders, invoices, and taxes separately. Enjoy the same FREE shipping you’ve come to expect on your personal account, and access exclusive benefits, like Instant Customer Feedback by Delighted, to gain insights on your customers ($1000/annual value), and more. With Prime and Business Prime Duo, you keep all of the Amazon Prime shopping and entertainment benefits you love, but also unlock access to work benefits found on Amazon Business.
What type of account should I use for purchasing?
If you’re interested in making purchases for yourself or your family, you would use Amazon Prime on a personal Amazon.com account. If you are interested in purchasing for your business, Business Prime is best suited for that. With Business Prime, you can have 100+ employees create their own logins, and the admin can set up purchasing rules, all under one business account.
What benefits do you want from your membership?
If you are looking to stream the latest season of an Amazon original on Prime Video, then an Amazon Prime membership on your personal Amazon.com account give you access to those entertainment benefits. If you are looking to unlock access to Amazon Workdocs for your team to collaborate on documentation, Business Prime would be the right membership for you.
