As per the latest reports, The Verge confirms that the e-commerce giant is all set to kick start its Prime Day shopping event that will take place on October 13th and 14th. The company will make the official announcement about the same on September 27th. The users of the platform were waiting for a long time for Amazon Prime Day 2020 dates. Now the dates have finally been revealed, and you can look forward to the months-delayed deals epic to begin on Tuesday, October 13.
The e-commerce giant Amazon has allegedly blacked out holiday days for permanent warehouses workers from October 13 to October 20, as per the reports of CNET. The date is confirmed by numerous sources, and this makes all the previous rumors true. As said, the company is going to start its Prime Day deals in early October.
Before this, Amazon has not publicized the Prime Day 2020 date, but the company only has mentioned a fourth-quarter occasion frame during its latest earnings call. The company will make public the date soon, as of October 13, is now only three weeks away.
The rumors around the spokesperson from Amazon said to The Verge that the business has not yet announced any final dates for the Prime Day deals. To know more about the matter, you have to “Stay tuned for more details on Prime Day,” the spokesperson added. For this, the customers waiting for the sale can ask Alexa devices to keep them updated about Prime Day.
Whatsoever the date, the company is not going to overlap the Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday sales. As per a publication company Tamebay, Amazon is planning to set its Black Friday deals somewhere about October 26th, and run for quite a lot of weeks.
Previous year the prime day has started on a Monday; and the company workers are staged a prime day strike to protest against the working conditions. The estimated Prime Day 2019 brought in somewhere approximately $6 billion. On average the prime day trend that started in 2015, is usually held in July. The reduction in cost is designed to attract fresh Prime subscribers, to encourage Amazon’s products and services, and to offer a sales boost in the center of the year.
The delay in the event from July was extensively normal, as the sellers and brands have been preparing this day for months. The assumption of a postponement began to start in April, as Amazon experienced huge orders from stuck-at-home shoppers during the pandemic crisis, causing shortages in the supply chain products.
As per the statement of Fahim Naim, a former Amazon executive, and CEO of e-commerce consultancy opportunity- “The hypothesis is that they’ve had to limit the number of [stock-keeping units] and quantities they’d allow brands to run deals on as a result of the fulfillment centers being overwhelmed currently,” “Will be interesting to see how it goes.” Naim added further. Once Amazon is officially announcing the Prime Day date, it will be more clear what things you can expect from this years deals marathon.
For now, the e-commerce giant is keeping all the things secret about this Prime Day. The marathon deal was delayed from July due to the pandemic situation. At this point, Amazon would only authenticate that Prime Day would be in Q4, which means for a time after October 1st, 2020.
