Amazon Prime Day In September, 3rd Party Sellers Now Allowed To Ship To Warehouses, Are The Coronavirus Shortages Ending?

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Amazon has decided to do Prime Day in September this year.

Amazon has had delayed shipping times since Coronavirus started to increase demand for online orders back in February, and they even stopped 3rd party sellers from sending non-essential items to their warehouses.

But Amazon has now lifted that restriction and 3rd party sellers can now ship an unlimited amount of items to Amazon warehouses for Amazon fulfillment. This is an essential step to be able to offer a wide variety of sales for Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day is Amazon’s biggest sales period of the year, even surpassing Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so it’s no surprise that they are doing everything they can to make it happen despite Coronavirus hardships.

A few weeks ago it was hard to find Toilet Paper, Tissues, Wipes, Hand Soap, Paper, Towels, and other essential items online, but in the past week Amazon has had most of these items available. It seems the hysteria is starting to calm down and online retailers are finally able to keep up with the demand. Of course items like Disinfectant Spray/Wipes, Purell, and other similar items remain in high demand and it’ll likely be some time before those are readily available online.

Hopefully someone at Amazon knows Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur coincide with the last 2 weeks of September…

RH is Shabbos Sunday so likely won’t be an issue. YK is a higher risk…


Hope for some great price mistakes. Love my Sony a6000


Anyone else notice the much better shipping times from other online retailers? I placed an order with Vitacost last Friday and it arrived on Sunday! Walmart also shipped something in 2 days and Target has been good too. Not sure what I’m getting exactly right now with my Prime membership.

ya, I didn’t renew my membership when it expired recently. my main use was for free 2 day shipping, but now that it takes minimum of a week & target & walmart have faster shipping speeds, dont see the reason to pay for it for the time being till things go back to normal

I just really want them to start shipping to Israel again. If I cannot go there to meet my new granddaughter, I would like to send them all presents…


They are now shipping to israel. You just have to decide if you want to pay the cost of shipping…


I read that title as prime day to be September, 3rd. I was also really confused about who these party sellers are.


The comma is a punctuation mark that appears in several variants in different languages. It has the same shape as an apostrophe or single closing quotation mark in many typefaces, but it differs from them in being placed on the baseline of the text. Wikipedia

My guess would be prime day before labor day so they can get in on the abcl to school rush.

I hope they open up the call center soon. Chatting is just not the same. And I’ve been finding mistakes more often lately. Sometimes I get lucky and they offer a call back option.
