Amazon Prime Day 2022: What is it? When is it? Why is it important?

8th July 2022, 12:12pm in Business by Amy Newham

Amazon Prime Day is a two-day annual sale for Prime members, offering exclusive discounts and deals across an expansive range of products from beauty to technology to household appliances. Unlike other significant sales events like Black Friday, the savings aren't open to the general public, only for those already on a Prime subscription.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

The previous two sale events have taken place in June and October, but this year Amazon Prime Day kicks off at midnight on Tuesday 12th July until Wednesday 13th July (inclusive).

Why is Prime Day important for businesses?

Prime Day is a huge sale opportunity for online businesses! You can create promotional offers and deals to entice prospective buyers and get your brand noticed.

You'll want to prepare for the upcoming surge in sales by checking your stock levels, reviewing product listings and ultimately deciding which products to promote. However, it would help if you also considered how to efficiently organise and ship your influx of orders to UK customers.

Even if you're not an Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime member, you can still bring extra traffic to your product listings and brand during this sales period. It's also a great time to evaluate your current shipping network and how to optimise it.

Prime Day might also be a good time to trial promoted items on Amazon's advertising platform to raise awareness of your products and store.
