Amazon's Prime Day results

Amazon goes to the dogs after Prime Day downtime

Online shoppers purchased more than 100 million products worldwide during Inc's (AMZN.O) annual Prime Day sale this week, despite glitches on its mobile app and websites that prevented several customers from placing orders. During Prime Day Amazon offers impressive Lightning deals on its own devices like the Echo smart speaker and Kindle, as well as on thousands of best-selling TVs, laptops, cameras, and homeware products.

Outside of Amazon-branded products, the Instant Pot, 23 and Me DNA test and the LifeStraw water filter were the best-selling items in the U.S., while the Bosch cordless drill, Philips Hue light strip and Finish dishwasher tablets were purchased the most in the UK.

Amazon also released a list of the top-selling items from the event, including the Fire TV Stick, which sold "millions" on Prime Day to become the top-selling item globally.

Starting the sale earlier might have helped Amazon buoy its sales growth from last year's Prime Day, but making the all-important Prime members angry could still have consequences. "The best deals on Amazon during Prime Day are going to be private label products", he said.

The sales began just over six hours ago at the time of writing, meaning there are still about 30 hours left of the total 36 hours planned for the site's various sale prices and deals. Net sentiment remained high on Prime Day overall, however, with a dip in the middle.
