Why has Amazon not incorporated a setting, like vacation setting, that allows a company to put the account on a delayed schedule for disasters. I mean it shouldn’t be that hard of a “fix” to the system. All it would need to do is to allow for delays and put a notice of possible delays on ALL of the listings until further notice.
Or better yet, make a button to set ALL listing’s handling time. So that sellers can simply change the handling once and it’s all done. I mean I only have about a thousand products and I can only imagine the heel the sellers with a lot more have to go through changing all the handling times…
AND make it so you can have delayed responses to customer questions. Limited hours means limited Days for a lot of small businesses. So making the response ok to be a day or more later than usual. It would require Amazon to put an automatic response of: The seller may be delayed up to “so many” days due to the “whatever current disaster the seller types in or selects” Please understand that they will get back to you as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
This way the sellers are taken care of and the customers are informed of possible delays.
