No Way Amazon Is Able To Get All of Those Orders Delivered in Two Days
According to Forbes, Amazon killed it yesterday despite the shitty deals.

quote:

Amazon’s press release attempted to give a different perspective on Prime Day. The company said that customers ordered 34.4 million items across the nine Prime-eligible countries, which averaged to about 398 items sold per second. The company, however, did not release how much revenue or profits it took it from the sale and it’s hard to discern that from the numbers given that a unit sold, could range from a flatscreen television to a stick of deodorant.

There is no way in hell they're getting 34 million orders to people's doorstep by Saturday. Both of my orders are still pending shipment.

Also, if you looked close some items said 3-5 day prime shipping. So it seems they covered themselves on some items.

3 of the 4 things I bought were shipped. And the 4th along with another weren't "deals" just regular things I needed.

I think this is definitely a scenario where gross sales doesn't mean jack. I'd be surprised if they're breaking even overall given the small profit margin on most of the items when coupled with labor and shipping.

Ordered a digital caliper yesterday morning. On my doorstep by 10AM this morning here in Jax. I think Amazon has this distribution thing figured out.

Knowing that most of everything would sell means they have it packages and ready just waiting on a sticker, then it's out the door.

All of mine are on the way except the one thing I did 3-5 day shipping . The one being delivered by USPS is the one I'm most worried about

The one item I purchased said it would take 3-4 weeks to ship. So I think they covered themselves on a lot of those situations.

None of mine have shipped.

I'm in Alaska so it usually takes about 4 days. But here recently, it's been taking forever for them to actually ship the item. Once it's on it's way, takes no more than 4 days.

Example: I recently ordered a replacement battery for Motorola baby monitor. I took 10 days to arrive. The item didn't ship for 6 days after the order was submitted. Then it took the usual 4 days to arrive.

Anyone experience similar issues?

Similar but maybe not really... I tried out prime pantry a month ago and it took over a week to get my package. It had shipped the next day but for some reason went the slowest route possible. That was disappointing. I don't think we'll ever do the pantry option again.
