Amazon's Happy Holiday: Over 4 Million Try Prime During A Single Week
27 December 2017, 02:20 | Clyde Nash
The Echo Dot was the best-selling product on all of Amazon this holiday season
This holiday season, Amazon sales are expected to account for more than half of all online shopping sales - a sign that the e-tailer remains a top choice among consumers.
Amazon confirmed today that it sold "tens of millions" of Alexa-enabled products worldwide this holiday season. More than 2 billion items sold this way globally a year ago, according to Amazon, and 140 million items were sold this way from just Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday.
"Customers shopped from hundreds of millions of products, including a vast selection from small businesses and entrepreneurs". Another tidbit is that the peak day of customer fulfillment this past year was on December 19. The Echo Dot was the number-one selling Amazon Device, and customers purchased more than twice as many Amazon Fire TV Sticks this year compared to holiday 2016. Amazon also touted how over the span of one week, more than four million people became Prime members, or started a free trial. Companies continue to handle their own packaging, shipping and customer service. This holiday season, Amazon's Echo Dot was the top-selling Amazon device, as well as the top-selling product available from any manufacturer across all categories on Amazon.com, with millions sold.
However, the company has never announced how many Prime members it has; as of September 2017, Amazon Prime had about 90 million USA members (up 38%), according to estimates by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners.
Amazon is still offering deals on the new Echo (2nd Gen.) and Echo Dot, so if you're looking to get your first Alexa device or add Amazon's assistant to more rooms in your home, hit the links below.
Amazon's Fire TV Stick was the top-selling line of streaming-media players in the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan on the site, with the site selling twice as many Fire TV Sticks this year vs. last year's holiday season.
