Amazon Prime Business

To improve the purchasing process through, Procurement Services has established a centralized Amazon Business Prime account for all TWU PCard cardholders. Upon registration, cardholders/reconcilers can now make purchases from the University’s Amazon Business Prime account for miscellaneous purchases of items not available from TWU’s preferred contract suppliers.

Through this central Amazon Business Prime account, cardholders/reconcilers have immediate access to:

  • Free shipping on all Amazon Prime-eligible items at no extra cost (no individual prime account needed);
  • Automatic sales tax exemption on exemption-eligible items sold by LLC and accepting resellers.
  • Business pricing and quantity discounts on millions of items; and,
  • Access to a dedicated Amazon Business Prime customer service team at 866-486-2360.

The Texas Woman’s University Amazon Business Prime account is limited to those individuals approved to use a PCard for the purchase of goods/services on behalf of the University. The Amazon Business Prime account is for business purposes only. No personal purchases are to be made through this account. All orders must be charged to a TWU PCard number. Orders must also be shipped to a TWU address (some exceptions may apply with written pre-approval by the CCSA).

Additionally, it is expected that Amazon Business Prime will be utilized only when sourcing miscellaneous items that cannot be obtained through TWU’s preferred contract suppliers. For items such as office supplies, computers, computer peripherals, course materials, lab supplies, etc., please continue to use TWU’s network of preferred contract suppliers as the first stop for acquiring supplies and resources.
