Amazon Says More Than 100 Million Products Bought On Prime Day

Amazon called this year's Prime Day the "biggest shopping event" in its history as shoppers bought more than 100 million products during the 36-hour sale.

Prime Day best sellers worldwide were all Amazon devices - the Amazon Fire Stick, Alexa Voice Remote and the Echo Dot.

Shoppers purchaed more than five million toys, beauty products, PCs, apparel items and kitchen products.

Members purchased more than 300,000 Instant Pot 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi Use and 150,000 LifeStraw Personal Water Filters.

Prime Day - Amazon's annual deals bonanza - is into its second day, and you probably think you're on top of all the deals worth knowing on the site.

Amazon expanded Prime Day to 36 hours this year, six hours longer than last year. Net sentiment remained high on Prime Day overall, however, with a dip in the middle. Massive promotional events like Prime Day certainly don't hurt the company's bottom line, either.

Given the slow initial uptake of Amazon in Australia, the e-commerce giant has a strong incentive to boost Prime membership and, subsequently, sales Down Under. The team at Fast Comparison will be updating their site with the best Camera deals of Prime Day 2018 on an hourly basis.

One research firm estimated sales were stronger than the same stretch for Prime Day a year ago, though the gimmick shopping holiday doesn't matter, with or without glitches.

For the first time, U.S. Prime members celebrated Prime Day with a week of savings at Whole Foods Market. The first day set a record for new Amazon Prime members.

As of Tuesday evening, Amazon said sales by small- and medium sized businesses had topped $1 billion during the Prime Day event. Adorable canines doubling as error messages greeted at least some people who tried to surf Amazon's vast shopping mall in the early hours of Prime Day on Monday.

"It wasn't all a walk in the (dog) park, we had a ruff start", Amazon said in a statement early Tuesday.

One of the benefits of this TV is that it's a "Fire TV Edition" model which means it comes running on Fire TV OS - the same interface on offer with Amazon's own line of Fire TV devices.

Merlon Capital Partners' recent report claims Amazon's first-party range is only around 1.5 million SKUs, with several years needed to reach the range of its United States site. Many brands decided it's smarter to offer steep discounts and pay Amazon for advertising to win sales on the site than to sit out an event estimated to generate $3.4 billion in spending.
