Amazon says SMBs that took part in Prime Day generated more than $1 billion in sales.

Amazon said that the prime Day sales in the USA continue to be bigger than ever - in fact, in the first 10 hours, Prime Day grew even faster, year-over-year, than the first 10 hours last year. Apart from saying there were 100 million products sold, the company focused on factoids while giving few actual sales numbers in the announcement, and provided none that would allow for meaningful comparisons to years past. Amazon said it was also the "biggest event ever" for its Echo devices with screens, the Echo Show and Echo Spot.

Amazon's annual day of outlandish deals and sales, Prime Day, has officially kicked off.

As of Tuesday evening, Amazon said sales by small- and medium sized businesses had topped $1 billion during the Prime Day event.

WHOLE FOODS IN THE MIX: The Seattle-based company is offering Prime members who spend $10 at Whole Foods from July 11-17 a $10 Amazon credit to use on Prime Day.

Amazon has said it has more than 100 million paid Prime members worldwide.

This year Amazon's desktop and mobile websites both experienced major glitches on Monday, making it hard for customers to make purchases and sparking a social media storm in response.

Following the launch of Prime in Australia last month, Amazon's app went from the ninth to the sixth most downloaded shopping app in the country.

The glitches had some Amazon Prime customers threatening to quit the premium service.

"Things like Prime Day and low cost Prime memberships are certainly one strategy".

Update: it appears that the Amazon Prime Day sales pages are back up and functioning, though some site features may not be operating quite as intended. Amazon is hoping its deals, available only to Prime members, are a hit with customers as it's raising the price of the program.

In the United States, Prime Day had a brick-and-mortar component in 2018 with a week of savings offers at Whole Foods Market stores.

As with all sale events in India, there was a competing sale to Prime Day. Once those issues were ironed out though, it's been smooth sailing with nothing standing between shoppers and the killer Prime Day deals they had been waiting for. In addition to impressive deals on Amazon devices like the Echo smart speaker and Kindle e-reader, Prime Day brings thousands of Lightning deals on the latest TV's, laptops, gaming consoles, cameras, home and kitchen products.

Amazon's first 10 hours of Prime Day outpaced the first 10 hours a year ago, with Prime members buying "millions" of Alexa devices, according to the e-tailer.
