You need an Amazon Business account and your recipients’ email addresses. Click the Get Started button above to create your first Your Company Bookshelf. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance.
You can buy Bookshelf vouchers through Amazon Business checkout using an accepted payment method (Credit/Debit Card or bank account). Pay by Invoice is not supported at this time. You can either buy vouchers during set-up of a new Your Company Bookshelf or add funds to your standing balance to issue vouchers at any time.
You can buy vouchers when you invite recipients to a Company Bookshelf or add funds to your standing balance to issue vouchers at a later point in time. Funds used to issue vouchers are reserved for the duration of the 'valid through' time period. Any funds not used by the 'valid through' date are returned to your available balance.
As part of setting up Company Bookshelf, you indicate the number of recipients and amount given to each recipient. For instance, $20 per recipient, for 1,000 recipients will require $20,000 in purchased funds. Any funds not used by the 'valid through' date are returned to your available balance. You can view reports the number of outstanding invitations, claimed vouchers, and remaining balance.
No, only the recipient’s Amazon account tax status is considered. You will not have to pay taxes on funding of the vouchers for recipients, but your recipients will likely have to pay sales tax, which you may want to consider when deciding on the funding amount to provide them.
Standard Amazon.com return policies apply to any recipient order. Recipients return their book(s) purchased with Bookshelf Vouchers and select from other books on Your Company Bookshelf. If a return happens after the 'valid through' date, your recipient is provided with a three month grace period to select another book.
Recipients have the Your Company Bookshelf voucher amount automatically applied to the cost of any of the books when they accept the invitation. Any remaining balance beyond the provided Bookshelf Voucher is paid for by the recipient.
