Amazon enjoys ‘record breaking’ holiday season

More items ordered worldwide than ever before says retailer.

Amazon customers ordered more items worldwide than ever before this Christmas, giving the retailer a record breaking holiday season.

Prime membership also continued to grow, with the retailer saying that in the US alone, more than one billion items shipped for free during the holiday.

And the last Prime Now delivery on Christmas Eve included a licensed product – the 11.30pm delivery in Berkeley, California included a LEGO Super Heroes Captain America Building Kit.

Meanwhile, the bestselling toys in the US and worldwide included the L.O.L. Surprise Glam Glitter Series Doll with seven surprises and NERF N-Strike Elite Strongarm Blaster.

“This season was our best yet, and we look forward to continuing to bring our customers what they want, in ways most convenient for them in 2019,” said Jeff Wilke, ceo worldwide consumer. “We are thrilled that in the US alone, more than one billion items shipped for free this holiday with Prime.

“Thank you to our employees all around the world who are committed to  bringing our customers the widest selection of products with low prices and fast and free delivery options throughout the holidays and all year long.”
