Detailing the number in its second quarter earnings announcement, the firm also said that its recent ‘Prime Day’ shopping event attracted more new members for Prime worldwide “than any single day in Amazon history.”
Speaking on the earnings call, Amazon’s chief financial officer, Brian Olsavsky, said that Amazon Prime membership – which includes access to its Prime Instant Video service – continues to grow. “It’s growing faster outside the US than it is in the US and we are happy with both growth rates quite frankly,” he said without breaking out numbers.
Amazon said that net sales increased 20% year-on-year in Q2 to US$23.18 billion (€21.14 billion). Operating income was US$464 million in the second quarter, compared with operating loss of US$15 million during the same quarter a year earlier.
