Amazon Australia’s Prime Day event delivered big sales for small businesses and big savings for Prime members. This Prime Day marked the two biggest days ever for small Australian businesses in Amazon’s Australian store and Prime members in Australia saved millions of dollars during the epic deals event, securing deep discounts across every category.

Amazon Australia designed this year’s Prime Day to support small businesses by putting them front and centre through the launch of their ‘Shop Local’ store featuring products from hundreds of Australian small businesses, and new curated collections to connect customers with local brands.

“From the bushfires through to the pandemic, 2020 has been a tough year for small businesses, so we are delighted that Prime Day was a record-breaking event for small businesses in Australia,” said Matt Furlong, Country Manager for Amazon Australia. “It’s also great that Aussie Prime members saved millions of dollars in our massive shopping event and we look forward to offering more great value in the run up to the Holiday season.”

Some of the top selling deals on during Prime Day 2020 were on the Echo Dot, Philips Hue Smart Lighting, Skin Care from WELEDA, Palmolive and more. Thousands of Prime members supported small businesses from across the country during Prime Day, with Zenify, Checkered Choice and Arovec seeing some of the biggest sales in terms of units sold.

Andonis Skiatis, founder of Zenify said, “Prime Day 2020 has been another record breaker for Zenify, proving to be the busiest two days of sales that we’ve ever seen. We’re thrilled that Prime Day really does support the growth of small local businesses like ours, in reaching as many Aussies as possible looking to shop local and pick up some bargains along the way.”
