Amazon Business Ups the Ante for Integrators with New Pro Portal

Among the features in the new Amazon Pro Portal is assistance for integrators on making tax-exempt purchases of Amazon products.

Amazon is working to make it even easier for integrators to purchase its products more efficiently and more profitably. Earlier this year, the giant online retailer touted its Amazon Business division to integrators for its special pricing and free shipping just for businesses. Now, it has unveiled its new Amazon Pro Portal, which includes an array of features, including how-to guides, how to make tax-exempt purchases, and how to track your shipments and orders when buying Echo Dots, Echo Shows, Amazon Fire Sticks, Eero mesh Wi-Fi routers, and Ring video doorbell and surveillance products in bulk at discounted prices.  

“For years, Alexa has been making our personal lives easier, and more recently, helping businesses run more smoothly. Now, Amazon has launched Amazon Pro Portal, which helps you get the most out of your Alexa smart business,” says Touma Hayakawa, senior account representative for Amazon Device Sales.

“Combined with the vast selection of products and dynamic purchasing solutions on Amazon Business, the Pro Portal brings your smart business needs together with resources to help make running your business or organization a little easier.”
