Amazon’s annual Prime Day event is back in time for the holidays on October 13-14, offering prime members incredible savings and deep discounts on over one million deals across every category, the company has announced.

Accordingly, Amazon Prime Day kicks off at midnight PT on Tuesday, October 13, and runs through Wednesday, October 14, for Amazon prime members.

Members can shop deals and top products for the holiday season including toys, TVs, electronics, fashion, beauty, kitchen, home, and Amazon devices now and throughout the two-day epic deals.

Amazon said that Vietnamese sellers on its platform could use fulfillment by Amazon service to take advantage of Prime Day to increase sales.

Meanwhile, Vietnamese buyers also have a chance to participate in Prime Day, if they are members of Amazon Prime and can make international payments.

In another development, the company is increasing its commitment to small business selling partners by designing a Prime Day to support them with our biggest small business promotion yet.

Through October 12, Amazon will offer prime members a US$10 credit to use on Prime Day when members spend $10 on items sold by select small businesses in Amazon’s store.

This Prime Day and throughout the holiday season, Amazon will spend more than $100 million on new promotional activities to help small businesses around the world increase their sales and reach new customers. This has been a challenging year for many small businesses, and selling in Amazon’s stores has enabled hundreds of thousands of smaller companies to sustain and even grow their sales despite the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.

“In the midst of an unprecedented year, we’re committed to making this the most successful Prime Day ever for our small businesses and excited for Prime members worldwide to discover new ways to support local entrepreneurs and save big on everything they need and love,” said Jeff Wilke, Amazon CEO for Worldwide Consumers.

“This year’s Prime Day is the perfect opportunity for Prime members to get their holiday shopping done early from the comfort of their homes – and to have more time to spend with their families and friends throughout the season.” — VNS
