Amazon UK chalks up busiest shopping event of 2018

Amazon reports that, during Prime Day 2018, the most popular items purchased in the UK included Echo Dot, Fire TV stick with Alexa voice remote, Finish dishwasher tablets and the Bosch cordless drill. 

As is par for the course with the e-commerce giant, it hasn’t released exact figures but says that millions of products were purchased during its busiest shopping event of the year thus far.

“Prime Day was created to say thank you to our customers and has become an epic shopping event that Prime members in the UK look forward to each year,” says Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager, Amazon. “It is now so popular with members that Prime Day 2018 became Amazon’s busiest shopping event of the year so far here in the UK. Hundreds of small and medium-sized businesses also experienced success on Prime Day with some of our most popular deals purchased from sellers.”
