Outage and strike do not faze Amazon on Prime Day

Amazon Prime Day is still going strong and racking up tons of sales despite an outage that prevented some customers in North America from accessing the website and the app, and a strike by workers in Spain.

The 1,800 workers in Spain were protesting low wages and poor working conditions at Amazon fulfillment centres. A second strike is planned in Germany today.

According to the e-commerce giant in a statement to Mashable, many [customers] are shopping successfully –- in the first hour of Prime Day in the US, customers have ordered more items compared to the first hour last year.
