Amazon UK goes down for an hour at lunch time today

By Chris Dawson February 6, 2016 - 4:06 pm

Amazon UK went offline for some users for almost an hour at midday today.

Amazon Down

Those try to access Amazon were displaying a message which read “We’re Sorry! There was an internal error in our system. We logged the problem and will investigate it later. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

Amazon is back up and appears to be running normally, so those on Twitter who were lamenting being unable to shop without leaving the house can get spending again.

Did you notice Amazon were offline. Has there been an appreciable blip in sales today?

    We’re down on last Saturday. So far this is the weakest day of the year so something to it.

    I think it was more than an hour. No matter how long it was, it put all my potential customers off.
    Worse day for a very long time.
    No explanation, no apology, not even acknowledgement that there WAS actually a problem.

      OMG wow! More than a whole hour? Better go back to eBay where they never have outages.
