Amazon says it's working to resolve the glitches on its website that kept shoppers from buying on its much-hyped Prime Day. We're not certain this is due to the same overload, but it does seem odd.

Amazon finally responded to reports the site was crashing at 5:00 p.m. ET (two hours after it began experiencing problems), but was still touting discounts and boasting that it had already sold more products during the first hour of this year's event than the first hour of Prime Day 2017.

Until now, though, most of their efforts have been centered on the critical holiday season.

Amazon said it expected only a fraction of its 12,000 workers in Germany across its six sites to join the strike.

The 36-hour event was projected to break records again this year, with industry analysts estimating the company could make at least $3.4bn (£2.6bn) in sales.
