At the Amazon Fulfillment Center in West Columbia, 4,000 people are working to make sure your online purchases for Cyber Monday get to you.
"It's our biggest day of the year," said Amazon Director of Consumer Communications Scott Stanzel.
For a company in the business of packing up and shipping out, its important to keep it moving. Last year more than 300 orders were placed every second, and this year they anticipate more.
"We expect a lot of growth this year, 10 to 25%," said Stanzel.
The items are stored on shelves by code, where workers have to hunt them down to fill orders. After that, the goods are packed up, or gift wrapped, then scanned, labeled, and sent out to doorsteps all over the world.
"It takes a few minutes to get it out to the truckbut we are working very fast to get products out to customers as fast as we can," said Stanzel.
Amazon says last year cyber Monday was the best that they have had, however they are looking forward to more this year and it being even better.
