Amazon Suspends Inbound Shipments of Non-Essential Products from Marketplace Sellers

What's Inside

As US consumers become increasingly concerned with the spreading coronavirus outbreak, shoppers have shunned malls and stores—leading to a sudden spike in online buying that even Amazon is having trouble managing.

  • Which products are in, and which are out (i.e. “non-essential”).
