Amazon sees busiest shopping day in its history on Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday was the single biggest shopping day in Amazon’s history, topping its record breaking Prime Day in July.

Shoppers bought more than 18 million toys and more than 13 million fashion items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined, according to a statement. In total, the 180 million items sold over a five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday broke records, with Amazon selling millions more products than in the same period of 2017.
