It’s an attractive message for more customers to come n join Amazon’s Prime membership and also tells about, how much trustworthy is Amazon.
Prime’s growth is the fact that the program is still relatively new to one of the world’s biggest markets, India, where it launched back in July 2016.

As we don’t know the official number of Prime members worldwide, we do know that the number of “new paid members” in 2017 is at least more than 20 million. This is because Amazon reported “tens of millions” of new paid Prime members in Q4 2016 – a number which Amazon confirmed to mean 20 million.
The Prime shipments have also likely been impacted by Amazon’s ability to get its Alexa-powered devices into customers’ homes, where they enable easy re-ordering of household staples, like packaged goods, diapers, dog food, and more. After the holidays, Amazon announced it sold “tens of millions” of Alexa-enabled devices worldwide over the holidays. That indicates over 20 million Alexa devices have been sold to date, according to various third-party analysis.

They were also the top sellers on Black Friday and the holidays. Thanks to deep discounts and other big pushes from Amazon.
