The first time the online retailer has ever revealed how many Prime members there are.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has revealed in his annual shareholders letter today that his company has over 100 million Prime members, marking the first time in the 13-year history of Amazon offering its Prime membership that the company has ever revealed its number of subscribers.
Analysts have speculated for years as the scope of Amazon’s premium service, which Amazon has kept secret for years. According to Bezos, Amazon Prime also saw its best year ever in 2017, with the company shipping over five billion products with Prime and signing up more new members than in any previous year.
Amazon charges $99 for Prime membership in US, ₹999 for India which includes a slew of perks for the online retailer, including free two-day shipping, access to Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service, Music Streaming Service, exclusive deals, and more.
