Amazon is back after a brief outage on Thursday afternoon.
The website was down for approximately 13 minutes on Thursday. Downdetector.com had received over 10,000 “down” reports since 2:25 p.m. ET.
An error message on the website said:
An error occurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured, we’re working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
If you were trying to make a purchase, please check Your Account to confirm that the order was placed. We apologize for the inconvenience.”
In a tweet, Amazon said they regret the inconvenience and were “working to improve technical problems.”
The 13-minute outage “cost” $47,884 in possible revenue (using 2015 4Q revenue of $482m divided by 131,400 minutes — multiplied by 13).
