Amazon's website crashes on annual Prime Day

Amazon prime day Amazon Prime Day Sales: Top deals on smartphones, TVs, Amazon Echo and more
Rhonda Young | 17 July, 2018, 03:48

Last year, three out of four Prime Day shoppers visited other sites before purchasing an item on Amazon, with Walmart and Target the most popular destinations, according to a survey by Bazaarvoice, which monitors social-media feedback about brands. It claims that many Amazon employees working at the fulfillment centers suffer from health problems and stress.

Of course, Amazon probably wants this to be resolved as quickly as we do, and it seems the company has added a sort of captcha verification to access the website. As of now, Amazon's Prime Day event is currently celebrated in 17 countries, including India. Amazon Prime Day 2018 began at 3:00 p.m. EDT. Just don't forget that in order to enjoy Prime Day, you have to be an Amazon Prime member. To keep with Amazon's prime day sale, Flipkart is also scheduled to host a sale starting from today onwards till July 19. "Many are shopping successfully", the company insists, "in the first hour of Prime Day in the U.S., customers have ordered more items compared to the first hour a year ago".

As a whole, the Prime offering is one of the fastest-growing segments for Amazon's bread-and-butter retail business.

Shoppers, meanwhile, have lots of sales to choose from as other retailers offer promotions to try to take a share of the spending.

Analyst Sucharita Mulpuru-Kodali at Forrester Research called the glitch a "huge deal". "I am shocked this caught them off guard".

Are you seeing cute dogs on Amazon.com instead of Prime Day deals? It was also hoping parents would use the deals event to jump start back-to-school shopping. Don't have Prime? It's not too late to become a member. You can also stream music from Gaana and Prime Music. Under the upcoming deals, members can click on the "Watch This Deal" button and Amazon will send a notification when the deal for that specific item goes live.
