Getting Started

Please be advised that you will be prompted to create an Amazon Business account before your first requisition through Amazon using BearBuy. Use the following scenarios to understand how to take appropriate action for creating an Amazon Business user account.

Scenario 1

I have never used my @berkeley.edu email address on Amazon.com

  • If you have not previously used your @berkeley.edu address on Amazon.com, account set up is simple! 
  • Your user account is established the first time you “punchout” to Amazon Business from BearBuy.

  • Just log into BearBuy, select the Amazon Business tile and start shopping. 

When accessing Amazon Business for the first time, you might see either Business or Business Prime on your account. These two are indifferent.

Please make sure that your account says Account for UNIV of CAL... to ensure it is associated with the UC Berkeley Amazon Business Prime account.
