Amazon restores service after global outage
At the peak of the disruption, more than 38,000 user reports indicated issues.
Amazon.com Inc said their online stores had reverted to normal services after a power outage disrupted purchases on their country’s sites.
According to the Downdetector exit monitoring website, services were disrupted for about two hours and during the disruption, reports of more than 38,000 users indicated problems in Amazon online stores. It happened Sunday evening in the United States and Monday morning in most of the world.
“Some customers may experience temporary problems while shopping. We have resolved this issue, and everything is fine,” said an Amazon spokesman.
The speaker declined to comment on the reason for the shutdown.
It was the second major disruption since late June when users experienced a small end to Amazon platforms including Alexa and Prime Video before services were restored.
