Study shows: This is how retail benefited from Prime Day 2021

Not only Amazon can post a rapid increase in sales after the shopping event. Prime Day also has monetary advantages for other commerce platforms.

The Halo Effect can not only be related to the advertising environment. The success of large e-commerce groups also rubs off on campaign days for other online retailers. A study by online marketing company Criteo shows how much retail has benefited from this year’s Prime Day at Amazon in 2021. For the study, the data of 300 million transactions worldwide were evaluated, which come from 8,000 retailers. The companies are defined as “participating retailers” as part of the analysis, provided that they achieved a sales increase of at least 20 percent during Prime Day 2021.
