Day one is coming to close for Amazon Prime Big Deal Days, a fall event rooted in what Amazon says are great deals for its Prime members. And customers looking to get an even earlier jump on their online holiday shopping.
And so far, based on data measured by consumer market research firm Numerator, online consumers shopped early and, for many, often. The average order size so far on Prime Big Deal Days is $54.00, down from July’s Prime Day sale but up slightly from last October’s Prime Early Access sale.
About a third (38%) of households shopping Prime Big Deal Days have already placed two or more separate orders, bringing the average household spend to roughly $89.32, says Numerator.
Amazon is No. 1 in the Top 1000, Digital Commerce 360’s ranking of the largest North American online retailers. Amazon is also No. 3 in Digital Commerce 360’s Global Online Marketplaces Database. It ranks the 100 largest such marketplaces by 2023 third-party GMV.
