How Amazon Business can help


Now that you have a good understanding of the salon essentials you’ll need, be sure to take advantage of the benefits available on Amazon Business when you are ready to purchase salon essential products. Below are some key features to consider:

  1. Professional-Use Only products and Wholesale Pricing: licensed beauty professionals have access to discounted wholesale prices on some products without any quantity minimums. 
  2. Tax exemption: with resale certificates
  3. Business Prime Duo: Duo is an add-on for small business owners already shopping on with an Amazon Prime membership, to add work benefits to their Amazon Business account at a special price of $69/year for 1 user. Duo lets independent stylists track business orders, invoices, and taxes separately while continuing to access free shipping on both household and business purchases, but don’t want to pay $298/year for both an Amazon Prime membership and a Business Prime Essentials membership.
  4. Automate frequent purchases: For items you use often, activate recurring delivery for business. Out of hand towels or caps every week? No problem. Just set recurring delivery on your preferred product to avoid stockouts and eliminate the hassle of reordering.
  5. Track your inventory: Closely tracking inventory is an essential step in operating an efficient business. The right approach is to not over purchase—which results in clutter—but to buy the right volume at the right time.
  6. Cost -  Look for transparency when it comes to pricing and compare prices with those offered from other vendors. Also choose suppliers who offer a variety of discounts for high-volume orders.
