Amazon slows and stops sales of non-essential products in Italy and France

Amazon slows and stops sales of non-essential products in Italy and France – Third-party sellers on Amazon now have an extra weapon to defend themselves from closure

In recent days, the e-commerce giant has announced the priority for stocks and orders of essential products: again for the emergency, coronavirus Amazon reinforces this policy by announcing slowdowns but also complete stops for unnecessary goods both in Italy and in France.

The decrees that limit travel and force millions of people to stay in their homes following a significant increase in orders and online purchases. Now Amazon's priority for essential goods extended to the entire multinational supply chain: logistics, transport, supply chain, purchases and third-party vendor processes. Here is the list of goods that are considered essential on the Amazon platform: <img class = "aligncenter wp-image-815576 size-full” title=”Best sellers on Amazon at the end of 2018″ alt=”amazon essential products "width =" 1200 "height =" 675 "srcset =" 1200w, https: // www.×270.jpg 480w,×392.jpg 696w,×601.jpg 1068w, /amazon-1-747×420.jpg 747w "data-lazy-sizes =" (max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px "src =" /amazon-1.jpg”/>

  • food and groceries
  • food and pet products
  • industrial and scientific supplies
  • health products and equipment
  • home care products such as detergents and soaps
  • personal care products
  • baby products, including books

It is worth noting that Amazon's top priority for essential products, as Reuters reports, was decided not only to meet the needs of customers forced into homes, but also to ensure the safety of Amazon employees who continue to work in logistics centers and distribution despite coronavirus epidemic. This is mainly by reducing staff.

Just as customers use e-commerce as a useful tool for their social distancing efforts, we too have adopted specific distancing measures within our distribution centers so that our employees can work safely. The combination of these two elements requires us to focus our available capacity on the products that have the highest priority and, starting today, we will temporarily stop accepting orders on some non-essential products on both and . This decision allows our employees in the distribution centers to focus on receiving and shipping the products that customers need most right now. Customers can still order many of these products from sales partners who ship directly. We understand that this is a change for our sales partners who use Amazon Logistics and we appreciate their understanding at this time when we prioritize the products that customers need most.

What changes for Amazon customers

The first consequence is the lengthening of the delivery schedules for non-essential products, i.e. for all products that are not included in the list above. It also decreases the number of pieces available for products such as smartphones, video games, accessories, clothes and so on. For most products for users, they can always turn to third-party sellers who use the Amazon platform to show their offers in the shop window: if the shipping handled by Amazon, the times will be higher than normal, if the seller takes care of the shipping, waiting and delivery times may be shorter.
