Becoming a buyer in the Reserved Instance Marketplace is simple and easy. If you already have an AWS account, you are ready to start purchasing from the Reserved Instance Marketplace. For more information, see the following sections:
If you don't have an Amazon Web Services (AWS) account, you first have to sign up and create an account with AWS. For more information, see Getting Started with EC2.
Some basic information about you, the buyer, will be shared with the seller. Your ZIP code and country information will be provided to the seller in the disbursement report. This information will enable sellers to calculate any necessary transaction taxes that they have to remit to the government (such as sales tax or value-added tax). In rare circumstances, AWS might have to provide the seller with your email address, so that the seller can contact you regarding questions related to the sale (for example, tax questions).
For similar reasons, AWS will share the legal entity name of the seller on your purchase invoice. In addition, if you need additional information about the seller for tax or related reasons, you can call AWS Customer Service.
After you have signed up with AWS, you can begin buying Reserved Instances in the Reserved Instance Marketplace.
