Some questions about Amazon Business
In the creation of your Amazon Business account some doubts may arise. These are some of the most common:
Doubts about the NIF
The first thing you need to know is that you do not need a tax identification number (NIF) to create your Amazon Business account. It’s optional. In fact, if you wish, if you do not want to add a NIF during registration simply leave the field blank and continue with the registration.
After your registration you can add it at any time through «Preferences of purchase» in «Your Account».
Of course, having registered your NIF is important because it will be printed on your invoices.
Of course, it is important that when you add it, you notice that it is complete and follow the appropriate format: ES123456789 (2-digit country code followed by a 9-digit number). If not, you may receive an error message informing you that your NIF is incomplete or does not meet the required format.
Can only purchase managers create accounts?
Absolutely. You can create an Amazon Business account for your company even if you are not a purchasing administrator. Once created, you can always add administrators and your purchasing team as additional users or as account managers.
What email should I use?
When creating your Amazon Business account you must use your company email. Amazon uses email IDs as part of its verification process to ensure that you, as a user, work for the company for which you created the account.
Likewise, the use of generic emails type firstname.lastname@example.org is not recommended.
On the other hand, if you already have an Amazon account associated with your business email, before registering your new Amazon Business account you should change your email address in your personal Amazon account by a personal email address. You can do it in the option «Login and security» of your account. Once you have completed the change in your personal account, you will be able to create your new Amazon Business account with your company email.
My Amazon Prime subscription
If you decide to convert your personal Amazon account into an Amazon Business account, your Amazon Prime subscription will be automatically integrated into your new account while maintaining all its advantages.
