Help prompt net sales to spike 22 per cent.

Amazon claims its top ten bestsellers were made up of technology products in Q2 2013, which supported net sales to reach $15.7 billion, a 22 per cent year-on-year rise from $12.8bn.

The Kindle Store now houses over 350,000 exclusive e-books and the Appstore continues to be enhanced with new features, which will have supported adoption of its devices.

Meanwhile, operating income decreased 26 per cent to $79 million, compared with $107 million in Q2 2012.

Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO of Amazon.com, said: "We’re so grateful to our customers for their response to Kindle devices and our digital ecosystem. This past quarter, our top ten selling items worldwide were all digital products – Kindles, Kindle Fire HDs, accessories and digital content."

The company has experienced a number of highlights over the period, expanding its Appstore to 200 countries, introducing Amazon Coins virtual currency, and recently settling a lawsuit with Apple.

Mobile traffic is also on the rise too, with 56 per cent of mobile customers using Amazon when making in-store price comparisons.
