Amazon Prime has 100 million members

To be sure, these are not apples-to-apples comparisons, since Prime is not only for video-in fact, it's likely that the vast majority of Prime members pay for the service to get the shipping benefits, not for Prime Video.

The company hasn't previously offered a specific number about its Prime members, instead keeping the size of one of its most important businesses a secret until now.

Previous estimates had pegged Amazon's Prime membership at around 90 million, but this number had not been confirmed by the company.

In January the company raised the monthly Prime subscription price in the USA to $12.99 from $10.99, but left the annual cost at $99.

13 years post-launch, we have exceeded 100 million paid Prime members globally.

CEO Jeff Bezos said in the company's annual letter to shareholders on Wednesday that Amazon shipped more than 5 billion items with Prime worldwide. Without knowing how big Prime is or how much it's growing, it's been hard to figure out how successful the program has been. More new Prime members signed up last year than any prior year, including 4 million in a week in late 2017. More than half of the items sold through Amazon now come from third-party sellers. In an annual filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Amazon said its median employee brought home $28,446 in total compensation in 2017.

He took a philosophical turn: To make a point about the importance of setting high standards, Bezos described a friend so determined to master a handstand that she hired a handstand coach.
