Amazon Business Registration Instructions
After you fill out the form to request an account, our Amazon Business account Administrator must invite you to join the organization’s central account. Once invited, you will receive a welcome email to join. Register by clicking the link (or copy and paste) at the “Activate your account” text. Note, if you are signed into any other Amazon account on your default web browser, you will need to sign out before clicking the link. The first time you access Amazon Business you will be prompted to set up your account via one of the three scenarios as described below.
Upon accessing Amazon Business for the first time, you will follow one of three scenarios as described below. Please read the explanations carefully to understand which applies to you. Note, the scenarios pertain ONLY to your @gvsu.edu email address. If you have a separate, Amazon.com personal account tied to a personal (Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) email address, it will not be affected.
I have never used my @gvsu.edu email address on Amazon.com
The first time you access Amazon Business, you will be prompted to set up an Amazon Business account. Use your @gvsu.edu email address in the box provided and continue. You will then be directed to GVSU's Single Sign On (SSO) platform and then Duo authentication.
I already use my @gvsu.edu email address to make GVSU BUSINESS purchases on Amazon.com
If your @gvsu.edu email address is already associated with an Amazon.com account, you will have the option to convert your existing account and transfer any purchase history and pending orders to the central business account.
I already use my @gvsu.edu email address to make PERSONAL purchases on Amazon.com
If your @gvsu.edu email address is already associated with a personal Amazon.com account, you will be required to assign a new email address to that existing account. You will be prompted to select “Create a separate business account” and will need to choose a new, personal email address (e.g. gmail.com or hotmail.com) that is NOT tied to another Amazon account.
You will not be able to continue using your @gvsu.edu email address for your personal Amazon account.
