The COVID-19 is real!
Let’s face it, and stop pretending that nothing is happening. The Coronavirus had reached every single country in the world! It started with the world’s largest manufacturer -China.
COVID-19 already reached the US, which is one of the leading markets for selling dropshipping products! It also reached Europe, the second-biggest market in the world.
Amazon recently advertised they are hiring 100k employees to their fulfillment centers as demand is increasing due to the Coronavirus crisis. Also, Amazon stopped receiving any new FBA shipments for products that are not household staples and medical supplies. This decision will go into effect between March 17th to April 5th, 2020.
We also noticed that a lot of products started having longer handling time, and even the gigantic Amazon admits to having delays in its deliveries as well as some products running out of stock very quickly.
We highly advise you to increase the handling time on your eBay shipping policy. You should do this NOW!
As more and more cases of infected people are being confirmed, the deaths cases are on the rise, businesses and schools are closing, cities, countries, and millions of people are under complete lockdown, people are forced to stay at home and order their groceries and health products online.
