1. Due to rapid growth in demand, Amazon will only be accepting essential goods in all of their warehouses until April, 5 2020.
    • According to Amazon, “We are temporarily prioritizing household staples, medical supplies, and other high-demand products coming into our fulfillment centers so that we can more quickly receive, restock, and deliver these products to customers.”
  2. Amazon will continue delivering the products considered nonessential that are currently stocked in their warehouses, but they will not be allowing sellers and vendors to replenish those products for at least the next 3 weeks.
    • Expect greater availability of things like soap and dog food, and potential shipping delays when it comes to less pressing items like clothing and electronics.
  3. If Amazon is a major part of your eCommerce business and you’re not selling an “essential” product then be prepared for a potential decline in sales.

SCOOTER NOTE:If you rely heavily on Amazon Ads or sell non-essential products, now is the time to get creative. Setup a pick, pack & ship station out of your living room or dining room. Recruit your kids to package orders. Communicate regularly with your customers on business and order status.
