On Friday night I noted issues as a buyer.
Prime was showing up with shipping prices if it showed up at all.
Item I wanted to buy was around 10.00 and showed a shipping price of $6.67.
The item was Prime.
Should have shown Prime with of course the free shipping next to the item.

At times getting a 503 error.

Found a small discussion going on Seller Forum Thread but it just sellers griping.
Went onto Reddit
https://www.reddit.com/r/amazon/comments/6fvpg2/getting_503_errors_all_over_the_place_but_aws/
https://www.reddit.com/r/amazon/comments/6gct7o/anyone_else_getting_an_error_with_both_the_amazon/

Next day...same issue
https://www.reddit.com/r/amazon/comments/6gcxrx/amazon_down/
https://www.reddit.com/r/amazon/comments/6gcmzv/this_page_isnt_working_wwwamazoncom_redirected/

There are issues this AM...
Wonder what's going on in the background...when this happens usually sellers have some new kinda update, too.

And if buyers can't use the site, then that means we aren't making money.

As someone who'd hoped to get a shipment out today and Seller Central will show unable to access at times and then it won't...this is frustrating.

I didn't notice it Friday or Saturday, but did nearly all of my shopping on Thursday. Talk about driving away customers, though.  Show them that sort of stuff and they'll move on to somewhere else. Not to mention all the ones that look at price and for the Prime logo, but never look closer and thus wont even notice a s/h fee stuck on there.  They'll be mad as all get out when/if they notice the charges. And good luck getting buyer support to fix their order total.

I hear ya; such things are almost always linked to some sort of *cough* improvement *cough* that does all sorts of fun stuff for the sellers.  :(

Several of the posts showed persons attempting to open a buying Amazon account and/or Amazon Prime...Nice first experience with the company.
Others who were opening Amazon credit cards said it would 20 plus times entering the info and then gave up.
All in all not a good experience for our buyers.

My sales were down about 70 percent on Friday night / Saturday morning. At least they've seem to bounce back over the weekend.

Mine didn't bounce back until Sunday.
I've come to depend on Reddit more so than Seller Forums with Amazon.
Not that the knowledge base on the Seller Forums isn't 100% spot on, which it is.
I just get a taste for consumers what they are feeling via the Reddit.
