Amazon will no longer accept “nonessential products” in its warehouses in the US and UK in order to make extra room for high-demand supplies.
Amazon informed its sellers that household and medical supplies are running out in its warehouses, so it has decided to stop stocking “nonessential products,” Reuters reports.
Amazon has deemed groceries, baby products, beauty and personal care products, industrial and scientific instruments, and pet supplies, as essential product categories. The supply changes will remain in place until at least April 5, to allow to it to “quickly receive, restock, and ship these products to customers.”
A spokesperson confirmed the information:
“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 we can more quickly receive, restock and ship these products to customers. We understand this is a change for our selling partners and appreciate their understanding as we temporarily prioritize these products for customers.”
The changes will take effect immediately. Any sellers that don’t have products in these categories will be unable to restock on Amazon until after April 5, Reuters reported.
