Amazon Prime Day 2020 will definitely take place, although perhaps not on the traditional mid July date. We were expecting to see Prime Day around the 13th of July, but it may be pushed back a couple of weeks to August.
Putting aside the uncertainty of the actual date however, Amazon have put out a call to merchants to submit deals and and vouchers for the event immediately. There is a sense of emergency to the announcement suggesting that, while Amazon Prime Day 2020 has been on hold, the decision has now been made and there’s a rush to get everything ready and in place to go ahead.
