Amazon says it had a record-breaking holiday season with more items ordered worldwide than ever before.

Amazon says small and medium-sized businesses had their best season ever. In fact, more than 50 percent of items sold came from small and medium-sized businesses.

Of note, Amazon says the last Prime Now delivery was made at 11:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve in Berkeley, California.

The cities that had the most last-minute Prime Now deliveries on Christmas Eve were San Francisco, Austin, Miami, Dallas-Fort Worth, and Springfield, Virginia.

In the U.S., more than one billion items shipped for free this holiday with Prime.
