Amazon sellers in the United States also were unable to access the company's internal Seller Central webiste, CNBC reported.

Amazon said on a status dashboard that it's identified the cause of the outage and was "actively working toward recovery." The outage affected some of Amazon's monitoring and incident response tools, which delayed its ability to provide updates.

Amazon hasn't stated the reason for the outage.
