Amazon reported on Thursday that its Prime Day event this year was the largest ever.
The two-day sales event, which took place on Tuesday and Wednesday and featured a multitude of discounts on electronics, home goods, and other items, was a success, but the e-commerce business, as in previous years, declined to disclose how much money it made.
However, Amazon highlighted the 375 million goods that it claims Prime members, who pay $14.99 a month or $139 annually for a variety of benefits including faster shipping, purchased globally.
Additionally, it claimed that during the sale event, sales growth for independent sellers on Amazon topped that of the company’s retail division.
According to Doug Herrington, an Amazon executive in charge of the company’s online and mobile shopping, “Prime Day’s first day was the largest sales day in Amazon’s history, and Prime members saved more this year than any other Prime Day event.
During Amazon’s event, some outside organizations also noted an increase in overall e-commerce sales.
According to Adobe Analytics data, U.S. online sales on the two shopping days totaled $12.7 billion, an increase of 6.1% from the same period last year.
