Having a physical standalone storefront can be challenging in today's climate, furthermore, with the impending COVID-19 pandemic that isn't going away any time soon, small business owners can flail behind companies that provide same-day delivery and unbeatable choices.
In 2020, Amazon.sg welcomed more than 12,000 small businesses in Singapore, all of whom participated in Prime Day for the first time ever. This year, there are more than double the number of small businesses participating in Prime Day. Shoppers keen to support local and small businesses should visit Amazon’s small business storefront this Prime Day, happening 21 to 22 June 2021.
Prime Day is seen as Amazon's largest shopping event, even surpassing its Black Friday and Cyber Monday events. Last year, Prime Day's event churned out more than one million deals to Prime members online. If you're not an Amazon Prime member, you can take advantage of its deals with a 30-day free trial at amazon.sg/prime.

Shoppers looking to give back to the community can also support local non-profit organisations (NPOs) through initiatives like the Amazon X Retail for Good Wishlist programme. A joint effort with the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), the programme lets shoppers purchase items listed on participating NPOs’ wish lists, while Amazon offers a nominal donation to each NPO on board to kickstart the programme. NPOs on the Wishlist programme include Singapore Children’s Society, Blessings in a Bag, Children’s Wishing Well, Club Rainbow, The Food Bank Singapore, Singapore Red Cross, SOSD, New Hope Community Services, Arc Children’s Centre, SHINE Children and Youth Services, The Singapore Association for the Deaf, and Willing Hearts.
