However, the company has never announced how many Prime members it has; as of September 2017, Amazon Prime had about 90 million USA members (up 38%), according to estimates by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners.

Amazon said it sold "tens of millions" Alexa-enabled devices globally and that the company's Echo Dot and Fire TV stick with Alexa voice remote were the best-selling products from any manufacturer in any category across the all of Amazon's websites.

The U.S. online retail giant Amazon announced Tuesday that it has sold more than 1 billion items from small businesses and entrepreneurs worldwide during the period from Thanksgiving to Christmas season. Another tidbit is that the peak day of customer fulfillment this past year was on December 19.

Amazon enjoyed its "biggest" Christmas yet, powered by a holiday sales surge for its Amazon Echo products, the company said Tuesday.

Amazon does not disclose exactly how many devices it sells. "Thank you to the millions of customers and hundreds of thousands of Amazon employees all around the world who made this holiday better than ever before".
