This Facebook Live covering Changes to the Amazon FBA program as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic originally aired Wednesday, March 18. Information shared is up to date as of March 18, 2020.


Amazon FBA sellers received a rude awakening March 17, 2020, when they were informed that due to COVID-19, Amazon was limiting the types of products that would be accepted into the fulfillment centers for, at minimum, the next 3 weeks (now through April 5, 2020) to only those goods deemed high demand and/or necessities for navigating the Coronavirus outbreak.

This sudden shift will require thousands of business owners across the country to evaluate their daily operating procedures, re-evaluate their stock and cash flow positions, and for many, their orders from suppliers.

Catch Jeffrey Cohen, Eddie Levine, & Robyn Johnson in this replay, hosting a live discussion on what this means for Amazon sellers and brand owners. These industry experts have decades of experience between them and will discuss the steps that every Amazon business should be taking both now and throughout the next few weeks.

With the proper adjustments, we can all make it through this time together. Yes, this is an unprecedented event and businesses will be affected. This is a perfect time to reevaluate product lines, focus your advertising efforts, or even look into diversifying into new marketplaces or your own web store.

Here at Seller Labs, it’s business as (somewhat) usual. We are here for our community and hope to continue to be a part of your business’s growth.
