Amazon Record on Cyber Monday

Amazon announced this Tuesday details of the sales success of the past few days. The days around the US Thanksgiving holiday are ringing off most traders at big discounts to capture as much of the pre-Christmas business as possible.

On Cyber Monday, Amazon customers would have ordered more products than ever before in one day. Over the five days since Thanksgiving last Thursday, millions of more products have been sold worldwide than in the same period last year.

The most successful single product was the new Alexa Echo Dot, a smart speaker. Customers ordered more than 18 million toys and 13 million fashion items on Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday alone.

Small and mid-market sales on the platform increased more than 20 percent year-over-year on Black Friday, the Thanksgiving discount day.
