Amazon's European workers strike as Prime promotion continues

According to DownDetector, most of the outages are centred on the US.

Now here's the interesting bit: The Best Price Guarantee is valid for Amazon Prime Day deals (provided the same product is available on eBay for a higher price.) This means you can score an extra 5% off the huge Amazon Prime Day discounts.

"There are hundreds of thousands of deals to come and more than 34 hours to shop Prime Day". Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud-computing division, reported global problems with its AWS Management Console, one of its tools.

The e-commerce giant's website experienced outages in the US, with thousands of reports of problems flooding into Downdetector, a site that tracks service interruptions and outages.

Spanish workers are on a three-day strike, while Polish workers will stage a work slowdown, known as work-to-rule, according to Reuters.

"It wasn't all a walk in the (dog) park, we had a ruff start - we know some customers were temporarily unable to make purchases", Amazon said in a statement. It said top sellers included some of its own devices - the Fire TV stick with Alexa Voice Remote, Echo Dot and Fire 7 tablet with Alexa. Amazon has promised an action-packed day for the United Kingdom, with 40% more Spotlight Deals than past year.

However, May asserts the president also took a different public suggestion during the press conference in London last Friday. Facing down the critics, she's reminding MPs to keep their "eyes on the prize" or prepare for the no-deal scenario.

Feedvisor's estimates are based on results from its clients. The firm's data indicates the glitches limited sales in only the first hour of the event, when sales were down 5%.

"For all the hype about Whole Foods, the grocery stuff on sale was less appetizing", said Sucharita Mulpuru-Kodali, an analyst at Forrester Research. "Unless this is way beyond their wildest expectations, it's just odd".

An afternoon recap of the day's most important business news, delivered weekdays. Customers who did decide to buy a Prime Day sale product suddenly found that the big U.S. retailer who also owns Amazon Web Services was facing transaction problems both online and via their app. The online retail giant's 36-hour sale for Prime members begins today at noon. They will be the first to get access to exclusive new product launches such as OnePlus 6 Red, NesPlus breakfast cereals from Nestlé, gaming laptops from HP and Acer, and many others. "Someone has made a change and it's not compatible".

This week's strikes have also inspired widespread calls for shopper boycotts on social media platforms such as Twitter.

"Way to go, Amazon.com". Just ask, "Alexa, what are my Prime Day deals?"
