Purchasing Workflow

Efficiently manage purchasing with integrated workflow features


Consolidate purchases and invoices into a digital system to reduce paperwork and the time you spend tracking workflows. 

  • Use workflows that fit your organization

    Use built-in Amazon Business workflows to control spending limits, set approvers, and more. Quickly scale workflows across your organization or customize them for different groups. Alternatively, integrate with your existing e-procurement system to use existing workflows.
  • Take advantage of tax-exempt purchasing

    For tax-exempt organizations, integrate tax-exempt policies into your workflow and guide buyers to sellers that participate in tax exemption.

  • Steer buyers to the right products

    Implement Guided Buying policies to direct buyers to preferred products or suppliers, or identify categories from which employees should not purchase. Add customized messaging to help buyers understand why products are preferred or restricted.

  • Quickly reorder common items

    Add, organize, sort, and prioritize products that you frequently purchase with Reorder Lists. Quickly reorder products from these lists, or share lists with others.
