Amazon Prime Subscriber Number With 100 Million Is Not Far Behind Netflix's

On Wednesday, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos in a letter to the shareholders said, the number for Amazon Prime service has topped 100 million as people are subscribing at a fast rate for speedy delivery of purchases and streamed television. The company had held these numbers closely for a long time which forced the analysts to estimate a figure based on the surveys and sales.

Amazon likes to boast about its prowess in job creation, and the company's workforce has exploded in recent years. The advantage of Prime subscribers is they can get free two-day shipping that the non-prime members don't get.

The letter praises Amazon's corporate culture, with Bezos maintaining that high standards are "teachable". Prime Now is available in more than 50 cities worldwide across nine countries.

Bezos noted the milestone in his annual shareholder letter, published Wednesday.

Amazon has signed more than 100 million shoppers for its subscription-based Prime service that offers free two-day shipping and other perks that help bind people to the company and its ever-expanding empire.

The power of Prime members is pronounced: They spend roughly twice as much as nonmembers, Ives says.

Bezos has been just a modest cagey about sharing Amazon statistics. The letter opens up some of the values and key points that make Amazon what it is today - a success story.

He then writes about how high standards play a huge role in accomplishing this goal, although the company has gone through ups and downs.
