Amazon Business

Amazon Business is now an approved method to purchase non-contracted items, allowing Purdue to take advantage of Amazon’s wide product selection and competitive prices. Departments must continue to maximize the use of University contracts before considering Amazon Business.

The University’s Amazon Business Account must be used for University business purposes only. All business-related expenses procured through the Amazon Business account must comply with the Purchasing Delegation Manual, Purchasing Card Manual and other internal control procedures.

The University issued P-Card is the only payment method allowed for Amazon Business. 

Program benefits include:

  • Free two-day shipping on Prime-eligible items
  • Access to millions of additional products, available only to Amazon Business customers
  • Access to a specialized Amazon Business customer service team
  • No membership fees
  • Automatic tax-exempt purchasing on items sold by Amazon.com and participating third-party sellers
  • Guided buying that will direct you to Purdue's strategically sourced contracts
