On Tuesday Amazon.com announced changes to its delivery services in response to the coronavirus outbreak. It was incorrectly reported in Wednesday’s edition of The Post-Journal that Amazon had suspended delivery of nonessential items. The company has in fact prioritized shipments of medical supplies and household staples and other high-demand products, according to reporting from The Wall-Street Journal. “Independent sellers on Amazon’s site will be unable to ship products other than such high-demand items to company warehouses until April 5,” the report states.
The change primarily impacts items available for “Fulfillment by Amazon” or FBA orders in the near future, which includes third-party items that are processed by the company.
