Amazon’s Q2 Online Sales Rise 16% to $53.1 Billion

On July 29, Amazon said it saw a 16% increase in online sales to $53.1 billion in 2021. Product sales and digital media products available in both a physical and digital format, such as books, videos, games, music and software all count as online sales.
