Day 11 of my voluntary self-quarantine for possibly being exposed to COVID-19 while on spring break in California. In this video, I give an answer to “Why Prime Shipping is Delay?” You may have noticed that after placing your most recent Amazon Prime order that shipping times have been changed from the normal two day delivery to up to a month. These Amazon Prime shipping delays are attributed to the mass influx of demand to e-retailer Amazon during this Pandemic. People being stuck inside leads to an increase in online shopping and a lack of workers. To help ensure people get the essentials, Amazon has belaying the shipping of non-essential items to ensure that the essential items are being delivered in a timely manner.
This choice by Amazon causes independent FBA sellers to suffer. Also, consumers are left to look at alternatives if they want things in a timely manner. I talk about how the consumer can combat these delayed shipping times by ordering from independent (non-warehouse) Amazon sellers or other retailers.
