The deals have closed and Prime Day 2022 has come to an end, but the excitement continues as Prime Day purchases make their way to customers’ homes. Prime members purchased more than 300 million items worldwide during Prime Day 2022, saving over USD$1.7 billion, more than any previous year. Prime members worldwide purchased 100,000 items per minute during this year's Prime Day event.
Looking to Australia, Prime members locally saved millions of dollars with some of the best performing categories being pantry, health and personal care, beauty, toys and electronics. Some of the best-selling products in Australia this Prime Day were Fire TV Stick 4K Max, Echo Dot (3rd Gen), Pepsi Max Cola Soft Drink, and Curash Water Baby Wipes.
Arno Lenior, Director of Prime for Amazon Australia, said, “We were thrilled to see Prime members in Australia save millions of dollars this Prime Day across a huge range of products including Amazon devices, robot vacuum cleaners, Apple AirPods and a range of everyday essentials. We are proud of the great value we are able to offer our Prime members during our massive Prime Day shopping event and on an ongoing basis, through free delivery on eligible orders and a range of entertainment benefits. We are also delighted to see that Prime members shopped from small and medium local businesses, with Prime Day 2022 marking the biggest two days ever for Australian selling partners, many of whom are small and medium businesses on Amazon.com.au.”
One of the small businesses that saw particular success was Yes You Can Drinks, a range of non-alcoholic beverages, made in Sydney. Tyler Martin, Founder of Yes You Can Drinks said “We pretty well sold out of all our stock over the two days and had customers literally reaching out a day later sharing their delight! The speed and ease at which we could plug in to the Amazon store is a game changer for us!"
