Today Amazon issued a press-release shining the light on Small businesses and entrepreneurs on Amazon, preparing for a record-breaking sales day on Prime Day.

Amazon expects tens of millions of Prime members to shop the best deals of the year on amazon's Prime Day 2017. Small businesses and entrepreneurs on Amazon will take advantage of increased traffic on Prime Day to reach new customers, launch new products and increase sales.

Last year on Prime Day, small businesses and entrepreneurs on Amazon saw orders nearly triple year-over-year as customers ordered more than 20 million items from small businesses and entrepreneurs across more than 50 categories.

“Small businesses and entrepreneurs on Amazon from around the world are coming together for the best Prime Day ever, offering Prime members deals on tens of thousands of unique products,” said Peter Faricy, Vice President, Amazon Marketplace. “Prime Day gives small businesses and entrepreneurs on Amazon an opportunity to increase sales and reach new customers.
