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, Prime Gaming, 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.
