Amazon has reported that it has had the best every shopping season this year, just like the previous year. Amazon has declared the season best both in services and sales.
Amazon has announced that more than 36.8 million items were sold on Cyber Monday alone which is considerably higher from previous year’s tally of 26.5 million. In statistical terms it means that 426 items were sold every second. It was a record breaking year for Amazon Prime as well because it managed to attract more than one million new members in the third week of December alone.
The best sellers were Kindle Fire tablets and Kindles and most of the sales happening on Cyber Monday. Amazon has not, however, disclosed the exact sales figures for these. However, it makes clear that Amazon tablets are definitely doing great in the market. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One saw sales of 1000 every minute at the peak of buying.
Amazon Prime is also doing great and it was earlier estimated that its membership has grown to about 10 million.
