The issue emerged on Thursday afternoon and has continued into Friday, according to online outage tracker DownDetector.
More than 2,000 people have logged complaints with the site since yesterday.
Data suggests that users in London, Brighton and Bristol are worst hit, with reports of issues also arising from Belfast, Manchester and Glasgow.
Problems with Amazon don’t appear to affect residents in other European countries, or users in the United States, DownDetector shows.

In the UK, it seems only a small number of users are experiencing issues.
The Sun understands the outage may be linked to a problem with Sky broadband, suggesting only Sky broadband customers are affected.

Amazon said it is investigating the issue.
