Amazon Discloses Prime Service Has Over 100 Million Subscribers

Jeff Bezos

Bezos, who, separate from Amazon, also owns the Washington Post newspaper, steered clear of the one-sided clash with the president. This year's big reveal - that Amazon has surpassed 100 million Prime members worldwide - suggests Trump's attacks are but a temporary distraction for a company looking for business far beyond the U.S.

The Seattle-based company has been investing heavily in original television content. In its annual report for 2017, Amazon charted rapid growth in subscription-generated revenue, from $4.5 billion in 2015 to $6.4 billion in 2016 to $9.7 billion in 2017. It includes perks such as free and discounted shipping, music and video streaming, and free e-books.

The typical Amazon.com Inc. employee makes less than $30,000 a year, the company disclosed Wednesday.

"Amazon and Best Buy have a long history of working together, and today we take our partnership to a new level", Bezos said in a joint statement.

The chief executive's revelation represents the first time since Prime was launched 13 years ago that Amazon has made public the number of members.

Chief executive Jeff Bezos, in his annual shareholder letter, said Amazon shipped more than five billion items with Prime worldwide past year and said more people were signing up for its paid-for service than ever before. "There's no single way to do it â€" it's a combination of many things.
