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…
