On Monday Amazon lifted its ban preventing sellers from shipping non-essential items to its warehouses.
The decision comes a month after Amazon told sellers that it would only accept “household staples, medical supplies and other high-demand products” so that it could focus on shipping essentials during the coronavirus pandemic after being inundated with orders amid coronavirus panic-buying.
Amazon now has more workers to handle customer's orders as they continue to place order after order. Last month, they hired 100,000 additional and they have plans to hire another 75,000 workers in April.
“Products will be limited by quantity to enable us to continue prioritizing products and protecting employees, while also ensuring most selling partners can ship goods into our facilities,” Amazon told the Wall Street Journal.
The company’s two-day shipping service is not giving customer delivery dates as long as a month in some cases, because workers at their fulfillment centers continue struggling to keep up with demand.
