Oz Amazon Prime Day Posts Record Results

Oz Amazon Prime Day Posts Record Results

Being caught in a never-ending loop of puppy pictures wasn't exactly what shoppers expected out of the first hour of Prime Day 2018.

The growth rate in the number of individual items sold on Amazon in the third quarter, which includes Prime Day, also isn't much different from the pace of items sold in the other months of the year.

The brand and its products are beloved by thousands on Amazon and Real Simple alike, and new Amazon Prime Day deals 2018 are giving you the chance to scoop up some of the best wrinkle serums and creams for lower price points. Almost every device Amazon makes is now available at a deep discount, and you'll find every single one of them below. In a press release, Amazon said shoppers could expect over one million deals worldwide, in addition to timed Lightning Deals.

Rocco Braeuniger, Amazon Australia Country Manager, asserts local response to Prime "exceeded" expectations, with more member incentives to be rolled out soon.

Amazon Prime Day, which lasts for 36 hours, is occurring in the U.S. and several European countries including Spain, Germany, France, and the UK.

"There is no doubt that this will erode sales and deter some customers from buying", Neil Saunders, managing director of research firm GlobalData Retail, told the Washington Post.

Amazon said its sales topped those for the Prime event a year ago as well as those for Cyber Monday and Black Friday, but it gave no breakdown of the value of sales or of the scale of discounts it had applied.

What Americans Think About US Trade Relations
Leaders failed to find sufficient consensus for such a joint statement after meetings in 2016 and 2017. China retaliated, saying the United States had launched the "largest trade war in economic history".

Here's the biggest bummer of Prime Day for Nintendo fans: Very few Switch games or 3DS games have gone on sale.

For at least an hour, many Amazon Prime shoppers were unable to make a purchase, place items in the cart and (some) could not even log onto the website or app.

"Prime Day deals continue until midnight ... across all 23 categories, from toys and gaming consoles, to fashion and books, with deep discounts continuing throughout the day".

Amazon also faced labor issues. Through Alexa, you still can get the Fire TV for $19.99 and all other Prime Day deals on Amazon devices. "The best deals on Amazon during Prime Day are going to be private label products", he said. For this prime day alone, these businesses made over $1 Billion in sales.

Amazon may have gone down for the first hour of its Prime Day sale, but that didn't stop the money-making machine.

At this point, Amazon appears to have addressed the technical issues, so the final leg of Prime Day should be free of drama.
