No surprise here: Amazon sold over 100 million products on Prime Day

No surprise here: Amazon sold over 100 million products on Prime Day

Despite website struggles, this year's Amazon Prime Day broke sales records around the world.

Amazon said earlier Tuesday in an email to CNBC that "Prime Day sales in the USA so far are bigger than ever - in fact, in the first ten hours Prime Day grew even faster, year-over-year, than the first ten hours last year".

Feedvisor used its database of clients, made up of companies that sell on Amazon, to analyze the sales trend.

The Seattle-based Amazon says its sales topped Cyber Monday, Black Friday and last year's Prime Day, when comparing 36-hour periods.

A report last week by Coresight Research projected that Amazon Prime Day 2018 would generate global sales of $3.4 billion, up 42% from $2.4 billion in 2017. Prime Day also lasts six hours longer than past year. It also said Amazon fulfillment center jobs offered competitive pay and comprehensive benefits from the first day of employment.

Detroit Loses Out On Final Four bid
San Antonio has hosted men's Final Four games in 1998, 2004, 2008 and 2018, and the NCAA Women's Final Four in 2002 and 2010. Houston was among several cities vying for a Final Four appearance between 2023 and 2026.

Looks like Amazon wasn't primed for Prime Day this year.

"We've seen a 55% lift in online sales YoY over the course of Prime Day for large retailers - massive growth that we attribute to shoppers making purchases online with a variety of retailers". Whether it's a paper shredder, a dog crate, or a medicine ball, Amazon Prime members get 20 percent off the items in the basics section. Target this morning said its One-Day Sale on Tuesday was its biggest online shopping day of the year, led by small appliances, beauty and personal care items, baby gear and home and tech products. We're kicking off this July 2018 shopping celebration for Amazon Prime members with the scoop on the very best bargains. Some of these aren't specific to Prime Day and thus don't require a membership, but the price cuts are also fairly modest in some cases-you can get $5 off MSRP on some of Nintendo's best games, like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Amazon offers the Prime free-shipping program (which includes other perks like Prime Video) in 17 countries: the U.S., Canada, U.K., Spain, Mexico, Japan, Italy, India, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, China, the Netherlands, Singapore, Luxembourg, and Australia. Once those issues were ironed out though, it's been smooth sailing with nothing standing between shoppers and the killer Prime Day deals they had been waiting for.

In Europe, Amazon employees were using Prime Day to draw attention to their complaints against the company. It says customers bought more pencils, pens, notebooks, glue sticks, lunch boxes and backpacks on Prime Day last year than any other day of the year.
