Over Amazon’s Prime Day on the 15th and 16th of July, the online giant shipped more than 175 million items worldwide. The sales outstripped Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year combined.
The Prime Day event enabled customers to save more than $1 billion in price cuts. Millions of those items were shipped in one day or faster on the Prime Free One-Day, Prime Free Same-Day, or Prime Now delivery services worldwide – making it the fastest Prime Day ever.
Prime Day was operational in 18 countries.
“We want to thank Prime members all around the world,” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon founder and CEO. “Members purchased millions of Alexa-enabled devices, received tens of millions of dollars in savings by shopping from Whole Foods Market and bought more than $2 billion of products from independent small and medium-sized businesses. Huge thank you to Amazonians everywhere who made this day possible for customers.”
