Amazon has achieved a record Black Friday 2019 . During the five-day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber ​​Monday, the US giant has sold 180 million products on its platform. Much better than during the 2019 Amazon Prime Day in July, during which 100 million orders were honored.

In a statement, Amazon says have sold more than 18 million toys and more than 13 million fashion items during the period. The tech was also in the spotlight as the best-selling product is none other than the connected speaker Amazon Echo Dot, which has still made a box. It was available at a price of 29.99 euros, ideal to get to know Alexa without breaking the bank. And as usual, Amazon did not hesitate to put much ahead of its own devices. Millions of Fire tablets and Kindle devices have also found takers.

Still, it was not won in advance. The anti-Black Friday Green Friday movement advocating responsible drinking was particularly strong this year. In several countries, particularly in Europe (Spain, Italy, United Kingdom), the protest is mounted among Amazon employees to denounce their working conditions during this kind of rush period. Strikes broke out, delaying deliveries. In France, Yellow Vests have also tried to block Black Friday. But could mostly attack the physical outlets and not Amazon.

Moreover, in the hexagon also the event has broken records. As reported by RTL, more than 50 million credit card transactions were made on Friday, November 29, 2019, the highest volume for a single day in the country. The previous record was achieved during Black Friday 2018, with 42.7 million banking transactions.
