1. On its busiest days, Amazon can process as many as 600 orders per second. That’s over 2.1 million orders an hour!
2. If you are wondering how much revenue that amounts to, in 2013 when the Amazon website was down for 40 minutes, just shy of an hour, the company lost over $5 million! That potential loss figure is probably much higher today.
3. Amazon is primarily a retailer of goods but it will interest you to know that over 50% of its annual profit is from Amazon Web Services (a tech product!).
Thanks about diversification of revenue streams!
