According to Amazon, the opening day of the sale was its biggest so far, with customers clocking several thousand orders per minute. Footfall on the first day surpassed the numbers recorded during its Diwali sale last year.
“We surpassed our two previous big days (October 6 and October 10, 2014) put together, in one single day.”
