People were quick to poke fun at some of the products on sale during Amazon's "Prime Day" shopping event — like krill oil and tubs of lube — but CEO Jeff Bezos is the one laughing now.
The company says it sold 18% more units during yesterday's sale than on Black Friday 2014. That's particularly striking because Prime Day was only eligible for people who signed up for its $99-a-year members only shopping club, though the company offered 30-day free trials.
Prime Day was also the company's biggest day for international sales ever. Overall, customers ordered 34.4 million items, at a rate of 398 products per second.
"Going into this, we weren't sure whether Prime Day would be a one-time thing or if it would become an annual event," Amazon Prime VP Greg Greeley said in the company's press release. "After yesterday’s results, we'll definitely be doing this again."
