Volo Commerce is one of the few multichannel ecommerce technology and services providers to connect customers to Amazon Business UK. We’ve been preparing for this opportunity for some time and we’re excited we can now help our customers to grow their business in the B2B sector, not only in the UK but also in the US and Germany.

Have you considered this growth avenue yet? If not, it’s high time you do to gain a significant competitive edge.

In case you didn’t know, the British B2B online market has been estimated to be worth around £96.5bn.

Amazon Business was first launched in the US and after just one year of activity it was serving over 400,000 businesses with total transactions of over $1bn.

It’s actually very simple to start trading on this new channel. If you’re an Amazon seller already, all you have to do is add the new features to your existing account. If you’re only interested in Amazon Business, you can simply sign up for a dedicated business account. In either case you can opt out at any time by canceling your subscription with Amazon Business.

Features like Business-Only OffersQuantity Pricing and the ability to list credentials are great tools to drive growth and attract new customers. You can also take advantage of tiered referral fees and get a lower fee percentage when business customers buy in bulk.

Additionally, if you’re already a Prime seller you can add the business account and provide free 2-day shipping services.

How can Volo Commerce help you enhance your sales and maximise profits on Amazon Business?

With us you can launch your operations in a matter of weeks. This gives you time to put together a trading strategy and assess your product portfolio and logistics capabilities.

You can set quantity discounts and tax codes by item, and also filter and separate B2B orders from B2C. At the same time, you can promote your products as consumer offers to retail shoppers and business offers to corporate buyers.

Also, even though Amazon has updated its global API with new attributes unique to Amazon Business, you don’t need to worry about this as the functionality is already in the Volo platform.

And above all, Volo connects your inventory across all marketplaces and channels you’re selling on.Managing international sales, fulfilment and dispatch, customer service and purchasing becomes simple, and you can focus on growth strategies and attracting new clients.

Furthermore, with Volo you can access powerful analytics that will help you get a 360 degree view on your business operations, most successful initiatives and areas that might need improving.
