Amazon Launches its Business Prime Offer in the UK after Two Years of Serving the Region

On July 2, 2019, Amazon publicized the launch of its Amazon Business Prime offer in the United Kingdom. The recently rolled out service will offer membership for business bank accounts of UK companies that sign up and allow them to enjoy Prime delivery perks such as same-day, unlimited one-day as well as nominated-day delivery.

Amazon Business Prime will target small to large UK businesses making purchases on its platform to make the process simpler and more satisfying.  It will also allow customers access to their spending stats—through the Spend Visibility feature— and data, and help them make the most of the money-saving techniques they discover from these statistics.

That way, businesses can come up with in-house policies to improve compliance and plan their budgets better.

This 2nd July announcement follows the giant online retailer’s earlier declaration that 2019’s Amazon Business Prime Day will kick off in 15th and end on the 16th of this month.
