NOTE: Bloomberg Second Measure launched a new and exclusive transaction dataset in July 2022. Our data continues to be broadly representative of U.S. consumers. As a result of this panel change, however, we recommend using only the latest posts in assessing metrics, and do not support referring to historical blog posts to infer period-over-period comparisons.
Despite the tweets, Amazon Prime Day appears to have been a success.
Single-day US sales for Amazon.com compared with a year prior:
- Transaction volume: +68%
- Revenue: +88%
- Customers: +57%
- Average transaction value: +12% ($59)
- Revenue per Customer: +20% ($79)
Note: We compared 7/15/2015 with 7/16/2014 to match day of week
For context, year-over-year revenue for June was +4.25%.
