How do I sign up (I use my college.edu email address for an Amazon account and have used that account for personal purchases)?
Once you receive the email invitation from Amazon to join the business account, click the “Accept this invitation” button in the email.
Then click the “Continue” button.
You will see the screen: “Sign in to the account you will use for business.”
Enter your college.edu email address and Amazon password for this account (if you don’t remember the password, click “Forgot your password?” to reset the password).
Click on “Sign In”.
On the next screen “Choose an account option”, click on “Create a separate account” to separate your personal purchases on Amazon from any business purchases. This action will create a new (personal) Amazon account under a different (personal) email address.
Click on “Continue”.
Enter the email address you want to use from now on for personal Amazon purchases.
Click on “Save and continue”.
You will be prompted to enter your name, college.edu email and to create a password for the account to buy for business on Amazon.
Click on “Create Account”.
You’ll see an “Almost Complete!” window and you can choose to copy your address book and payment methods. Be sure to only use a college shipping address and only the college’s purchasing card as a payment method for the business account.
Click on “Complete”.
Amazon will send you an email confirming the creation of the account.
