Cyber Monday was the single biggest shopping day in Amazon’s history, topping its record breaking Prime Day in July.
Shoppers bought more than 18 million toys and more than 13 million fashion items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined, according to a statement. In total, the 180 million items sold over a five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday broke records, with Amazon selling millions more products than in the same period of 2017.
“Black Friday and Cyber Monday continue to break records on Amazon year over year, which tells us that customers love shopping for deals to kick off the holiday shopping season,” said Jeff Wilke, CEO of Worldwide Consumer.
Echo Dots were among the top selling products, as sales of Amazon devices also broke records.
