COVID-19: Removal order delays and long-term storage fee waiver


#21

yes, this is a manpower issue.


#22

FBA is still shipping out stuff albeit a little slower for some customers. I placed 4 orders in the past week including today for shipping supplies (bubble mailers, packing tapes, and scotch tapes), coffee and health supplements. I would argue that some of these items are non essentials. Amazon has put all my orders’ delivery date range as March 26 - April 1, and I am NOT even a Prime member. One big order placed last Tuesday (3/17) is finally shipping out today and is projected to arrive this Friday.

It’s times like this, I am glad I am totally FBM.


#24

As mentioned above this post, I am NOT a Prime member and Amazon is/will be shipping out my orders which I consider Non-Essentials, within a week or so, and NOT end of April like some posters have claimed. I wonder if the estimated delivery date posted on the ASIN is actually different from the one stated on my ORDERS page.

I placed a large order for 400 bubble mailers last Tuesday and it’s finally shipping out today and is projected to arrive this Friday. But remember I said I am NOT Prime, and non-Prime orders usually takes longer time to ship out anyway (not uncommon to have warehouse sit on it for a week or longer before it’s finally shipped).

It varies, i tried order a set of headphones last night, it said delivery was April 21st and that was a prime product. Not all but a lot have that time frame.


#26

Did you put the headphones in the shopping cart? I wonder if the estimated delivery date would change when it gets to the final order page?


#27

I did, it still said April delivery time.


#28

Here’s a screenshot of their announcement.


#29

OK, I just went and put a pair of headphones into my cart and it did provide a late April delivery date. Wonder what Amazon considers essentials vs non-essentials? I sell non-essential items and just tried to put my FBA competitor’s item into my cart and see what would happen. Amazon provided an end-of-March delivery date for Prime members, and strangely, a mid- to late-April delivery dates if I had selected the Paid Shipping options ($5.99 and $9.99).

Amazon will never win with the forums…

They are literally removing any LTSF and y’all are still complaining.

Focus on your health, give it a rest.


#31

I was shopping for vacuum hoses today and the dates were Mar 30-Apr 1. Does AZ not tell you of the delay until after you buy?


#32

In general, It shows late deliver. Like everything in life, there are exceptions.


#33

Seems like that’s exactly what’s happening.


#34

No mention of large sellers being able to send in non-essential items to fba while restricting the little guy? And how do you have “essential” items when the manufacturers are donating to hospitals? :thinking:


#35

Yes, they ship. But next month…

(This is NOT a complain just giving a fact.)


#36

yes,i agree, to be honest,long term storage fees not too much, why won’t reduce apert of the short term storage fee?


#37

Lucky ones get normal dates. But many are delayed until next month.

It looks something like this:

Stay well, everyone!


#38

#39

Hey Amazon if you’re stopping and slowing all these services… Give us some free months on our accounts or something!
