Amazon resolves problem preventing US users from accessing site

Amazon said it has resolved an issue that prevented some users from accessing the shopping site on Wednesday.

“We’re sorry that some customers may have temporarily experienced issues while shopping. We have resolved the issue,” a company spokesperson said, but did not provide any details on what caused the outage.

Some users in the United States faced problems accessing the shopping site. About 12,000 users reported issues as of 10am ET, according to Downdetector, which tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources including user-submitted errors on its platform.

Amazon’s shares were down marginally amid a wider selloff in stock markets.
