Amazon Business Prime

OLC is launching a new partnership with Amazon Business to help reduce costs for OLC Institutional Member Libraries throughout the state. The majority of Ohio’s public libraries already have some type of Amazon account. Some are utilizing Amazon Business, and some are using individual Amazon accounts. Many libraries would prefer to have Amazon Business Prime, but are unable to include it in their budgets. These accounts are used to make purchases on everything from princess crowns to bird houses, but many are missing out on Amazon Business Prime discounts.

New Benefit Program

This new program is completely voluntary and free of charge. It will be available to all OLC Institutional Member Libraries with your Institutional Membership in 2024. It includes:

  • A free Amazon Business Prime Account — a value of $1,299/year with up to 100 users
  • Discounted pricing up to 15% from
  • Fast and free shipping on Prime eligible items
  • Pay by invoice option
  • $10,000 monthly line of credit with net-30 terms
  • Additional 10% discount on 5,000 items
  • Tax Exemption on all purchases
  • Additional discounts on specific book titles (book list to come)
  • A dedicated customer service advisor

Objective: During this webinar, you will learn more about this new benefit program and how to take advantage of it.
