The crash comes just with just 18 days until Christmas, so many people are currently purchasing gifts – but they will have to wait a little longer to fulfill their holiday list.
And many consumers have flocked to Twitter to share this frustration.
Twitter user ‘The Public Archive’ tweeted: ‘ Amazon is down. The war on Christmas has begun.’
While ‘MoonChild’ is upset the platform crashed right in the middle of their Christmas shopping.
Some users are also having issues with Amazon Music, which some consumers pay $16 a month to access.
DownDetector shows there were more than 9,000 incidents of people reporting issues with Amazon and its services.
