Amazon, one of the biggest online shopping platforms out there is also taking special measures during these hectic times, they will be disabling shipment creation for non-essential product orders. The vendors that will be affected by this may vary, but one of the things included is CDs and vinyls. The postponement of these particular orders is set to last at least until 5th of April, but with the crisis situation still getting worse, it might extend if necessary.
“We are seeing increased online shopping, and, as a result, some products such as household staples and medical supplies are out of stock. With this in mind, 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.”
The limitations that Amazon has applied will allow them to focus on household staples, medical supplies and other high demand products that people might need to get through the quarantine time.
