FAQs

  • Setting up Amazon Business Integrated Search requires an existing punchout integration with Amazon Business through a spend management or eProcurement system that supports the Integrated Search feature. See below for a list of providers that support Integrated Search.  An Amazon Business Account Administrator can set up punchout using the self-configuration tool; from your business account, go to Business Settings > System integrations > Configure purchasing system and follow the step-by-step instructions provided. Then, you can contact your Amazon Business Customer Advisor or P2P purchasing software provider to request activation of Integrated Search. 

  • We currently integrate with purchasing systems from Adelpo, BeNeering, BuyerQuest, Coupa, GEP, Ivalua, Onventis, and SAP Ariba.

     

  • Once enabled with the Amazon Business Product Search API (PS API), Integrated Search allows users shopping on your spend management or eProcurement system to search and find Amazon Business products directly in your system environment. Within displayed search results, users can choose the right product and submit orders via Level 2 punchout. Integrated Search with Level 2 punchout allows users to search for a product within the spend management or eProcurement system, view search results, decide which item best meets their needs, and then proceed to punch out directly to the product detail page on Amazon Business.

  • With Amazon Business punchout integration, users begin their purchases within their P2P or eProcurement software, "jumping out" to the Amazon Business store, searching for and selecting products and creating a shopping cart that is then submitted back to their eProcurement system for approval. With Integrated Search, users can search for products from within the eProcurement system, and view selection and make purchases without leaving the eProcurement environment.
