On September 28, Amazon announced that Amazon Prime membership day would be opened globally on October 13 and ended on October 14. This prime membership day offers prime members in 19 countries more than one million exclusive premium offers from many brands.
At the same time, in order to further help small and medium-sized enterprises and alleviate the impact of the new crown epidemic, Amazon will invest $100 million worldwide to help small and medium-sized enterprises in the world to launch more preferential activities, reach more consumers and achieve business growth during prime member days and year-end shopping season.
Amazon global consumer chief executive Jeff Wilke said:
It is reported that during the prime membership date in 2019, Amazon's global sales of third-party sellers exceeded $2 billion. Half of the goods sold on Amazon's global sites come from third-party sellers. This year, prime members will also have the opportunity to purchase hundreds of thousands of exclusive premium offers from SMEs. At the same time, in order to ensure the effective distribution of logistics during the prime membership day and the year-end shopping season, Amazon also announced in early September that 100000 full-time and part-time job opportunities would be added in the operation center and logistics distribution network to ensure the delivery timeliness in the shopping season together with hundreds of thousands of existing Amazon employees.
