Cyber Monday was Amazon’s largest shopping day ever, topping July’s record-breaking Prime Day, the retail giant announced Wednesday.

No specific sales numbers were given in the announcement, but Amazon said its Echo Dot virtual assistant was its biggest seller. Amazon Fire Stick for TV with Alexa Voice Remote and Amazon Fire Tablets were also top sellers, according to TechCrunch.

Amazon reported its third-party sellers also had their biggest collective day ever with more than 140 million items sold between Thankgiving and Cyber Monday.

Worldwide sales on the Amazon app jumped 50 percent over last year as more mobile users shopped on their devices this year than ever before, the company said

Amazon scored between 45 and 50 percent of all sales on Black Friday, accounting for well over $1 billion in sales during that time period, Business Insider reported.  

Stocks for the online retailer are up 50 percent so far this year and were approaching $1,200 per share Wednesday, pushing CEO and major shareholder Jeff Bezos’ net worth to over $100 million during the shopping weekend, CNBC reported.

Tens of millions of Alexa-enabled devices are estimated to be in consumers’ hands, and those numbers were from before Cyber Monday.

“This is just the beginning of the holiday season,” Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon's Worldwide Consumer services, said in a statment. “We’ll continue to offer incredible deals and a vast selection of unique products, with fast and free shipping options all season long, and every day.”
