Prime Day 2022 By the Numbers

Prime Day 2022

Whenever a major e-commerce shopping event such as Prime Day comes and goes the first natural follow-up question is: how’d we do?

During the lead up to Prime Day 2022, more and more anec-data popped up anticipating a slump in the shopping holiday, despite the fact that Prime Day has grown year over year since its debut in 2015.

The reasons for these glum predictions were varied: ongoing supply-chain issues, inflation woes, increased e-retailer competition, a natural backswing to the e-commerce explosion fueled by COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021.

Now, more than three weeks after the July 12–13 event, the results are in, and by some metrics it was the biggest Prime Day ever.

Over the course of 48 hours, Prime members purchased some 300 million items—that’s more than 100,000 items per minute, and more than the 250 million estimated items purchased during Prime Day 2021.
