Web glitch costs Amazon

By on

Amazon.com is counting the effects, if there were any, after its site experienced problems in North America for more than two hours because of ‘system issues’.

Before 10am California time on a Saturday, the website was shut down and giving an error code to anyone visiting it, according to Keynote Systems – a company who measures the performance of websites.

However, Amazon’s services it provides to other companies were not affected, nor its international sites.

Amazon is one of the web giants, and it attracts massive amounts of money and traffic, with forecasters expecting the company will bring in more than US$19 million in revenue this year.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
