Prime Day is Mid July - Time to Get Ready

Amazon has announced that they are going to have another Prime Day this year in Mid July.  While many people thought that the offerings were ho-hum (I only bought some discounted Amazon gift cards), the numbers actually show that it was one of the best days of the year for Amazon in 2015, even beating Black Friday in 2014.

According to The Street

Amazon's (AMZN) "Black Friday in July" holiday Prime Day seems to have been a huge success, despite the criticism you may have seen on social media.
According to Amazon, it sold more units on Prime Day than Black Friday 2014. Global orders on July 15 increased 266% over the same day last year and 18% more than Black Friday 2014.
On Prime Day, 34.4 million items were sold on Amazon in Prime-eligible countries, translating to 398 items ordered per second.

That means that tons of people are going to Amazon and buying merchandise so you should be ready.  Amazon guarantees that arrives at fulfillment center before June 22nd, will be in your inventory during Prime Day.  That means start buying stuff to send in!

This will be my first Prime Day as a seller but I'm hopeful that it will be a great day.  Anyone sell during prime day last year?  Did you see a big bump in your sales?
