The online retailer Amazon.com today announced that it sold a record $1 billion worth of cheap clothing online this month, including dresses, pants and underwear, to customers in the U.S., Mexico, and Brazil.
Amazon’s chief executive officer Jeff Bezos, in a statement today, said Amazon had already sold $1,826 million worth of clothes online last month, a new record for the company.
The figure includes clothing from its Prime members, which include shoppers in the United States, Mexico, Brazil and Canada.
According to the company, this is the most expensive month for clothes in Amazon’s history.
“The record sales of clothes last month showed us that Amazon customers can shop online with confidence and enjoy great deals on some of their favorite clothing brands and brands’ products,” Bezos said in the statement.
“We are grateful for the loyal customers who support us with their shopping habits.”
The sale of cheap clothes is another sign that Amazon is looking to grow its e-commerce business, which is now worth more than $13 billion.
In 2016, Amazon said it expected to sell $9.6 billion worth in clothing online.
Last year, the company said it was only worth $7.3 billion.
Amazon is currently one of the largest online retailers in the world, with $16.9 billion in annual sales.
The company also said that its free-to-use video-on-demand service Amazon Prime was now offering an estimated 100 million customers a year.
Amazon’s Prime customers can also purchase clothes online through Amazon.tv, which will also be available to its Prime customers in Brazil, Brazil, Mexico and Canada this year.
