Amazon.com sure has evolved over the past 20 years. Starting out as predominantly an online bookstore, they have grown significantly into the digital retailer of choice for consumers in the U.S. and beyond.
Today, Amazon continues to evolve, adding original programming and extensive mobile capabilities.
So here you have it: all the Amazon statistics and facts I could dig up. As always, if I stumble across more Amazon stats that are worth sharing I will be sure to update this post.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these stats come from Amazon’s own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100% accurate.
