Amazon Prime Day is one of the biggest online shopping days of the year, as the world’s most famous ecommerce offers discounts on various products. But how much did Revolut users spend this year?
According to data, in Italy, consumers spent an average of €78 on the 13th and €70 on the 14th of October 2020.
Moreover, according to data released by Revolut, over the two days, the peak of purchases occurred between 10 PM and midnight (CEST) on October 14th, 2020.
Compared to the 2019 summer event, which saw consumers making purchases for €82 on average on July 15th and €74 on July 16th, this year’s Revolut data shows a decrease of around 5% on both days of Amazon Prime Day.
The tips from Revolut for online shopping
On this occasion, the Revolut team wanted to offer suggestions to its users when they wish to shop online.
First of all, a virtual card is suggested: Revolut customers can create virtual cards with different numbers from the physical card but linked to the same account. This is especially necessary when they do not know the website where they are shopping so as to avoid online fraud.
With Revolut, it is also possible to convert currencies, which is useful if, for example, users find cheaper products by paying in a different currency.
