DownDetectoron Sunday evening Amazon appears to be suffering an outage. The website is unavailable or extremely slow to load for many users. As well as the main website being affected users of other Amazon services are affected, for instance Prime Instant Video subscribers are unable to watch movies.

Monitoring website DownDetector confirmed the outage, are you having problems or have you seen a dip in sales on Sunday evening?

    Seller Central is down for me.
    Can’t get the page up to log into at all.

    I’ve had orders though.

    Earlier, when this issue was first reported, it was the other way around. I could use seller central but not shop.

    Yes. We had some problems. Can’t say on sales particularly, Sundays are quite erratic on Amazon for us. We have had some sales and not as many as I’d have liked, so a distinct possibility it was effected.

    I think it’s just gone down again (17:30pm Monday 16th Feb).
    I also note there has been so notice, explanation or apology I could find on the site for yesterday’s outage.

    Anyone seen one?

    The website has suffered several serious outages yesterday from tea time onwards (at least three).
    Another major outage taking right place right now as I type this.
    As usual not a word from the Amazon machine – no surprises there then.
