After Amazon released the news that FBA has suspended receiving non- medical and necessities categories, almost all sellers are in trouble. Many people spend all day in various WeChat groups and QQ groups to see if there is any new follow-up progress. Some sellers are even preparing to temporarily abandon the US station.
However, within one day of the FBA’s suspension of non-medical and necessities news, we saw two important messages.
An American seller said that just yesterday yesterday, he sold 40,000 orders for a product in one day! !! He was so excited about it! He believes that Amazon warehouses no longer accept non-medical and daily necessities, in addition to the reasons for the operation of the warehouse during the epidemic period, but also because of the influx of new customers and large orders. No matter what you sell on Amazon, you can sell a lot now or in the near future. This seller sold 40,000 pieces in one ASIN! This is what will happen in the future!
This American seller is estimated to be selling necessities, and there are stocks in the United States, tide-like orders are coming in, and it explodes!
In the past few days, some sellers have made statistics. The top search volume on Amazon’s US site is indeed daily necessities for life, disinfection, and washing, and toilet paper is at the top. US sellers in these categories are generally more advantageous.
Chinese sellers are currently following up. We have seen some seller friends are actively stocking and want to sell toilet paper on Amazon! How expensive is toilet paper in the United States? US netizens tell us that some people now sell a roll of toilet paper for $ 3,999, and a promotion can send a one-carat diamond ring!
Toilet paper is not just a necessity in the United States. Even the Germans who have always been rigorous are now keeping up with the pace of toilet paper storage!
In fact, it is not just these daily necessities. Amazon platform data shows that orders have surged during the outbreak!
In order to cope with the rapid increase in orders, Amazon announced that it will recruit an additional 100,000 full-time and part-time employees in the United States, and provide $ 350 million to raise salaries for employees in Europe and the United States. By the end of April, the hourly hourly wage of Amazon in the United States will increase by 2 dollars, the hourly wage of British employees will increase by 2 pounds, and the hourly wage of most EU countries will increase by 2 euros. In this way, the hourly salary of Amazon warehouse and courier workers in the United States has reached about $ 15.
If an employee is diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia or is quarantined due to the outbreak, they will be paid an additional two weeks. By the end of March, all warehouse hourly workers can also take unlimited leave without pay according to their wishes.
During the epidemic, employees in industries such as hotels, restaurants, and the tourism industry who need to show up in public are prone to unemployment or suspension of work. Amazon encourages these people to apply for warehousing and delivery work at Amazon. After the epidemic is lifted and life returns to normal, you can Voluntarily return to work in the original industry.
So interested in absorbing the idle labor of the society, Trump would be afraid to give his brother-in-law a gentle bear hug!
However, working in the Amazon warehouse does not seem to be very popular with the working people, which may be the reason why the Amazon FBA warehouse only accepts medical and daily necessities.
Some Amazon employees complained that the company did not escort their employees’ health and did not provide workers with protective masks, disinfectants, disinfectant wipes and other anti-epidemic materials. More than 1,500 Amazon employees have signed petitions asking Amazon to provide them with paid sick leave and paid parental leave, as well as 1.5 times the danger allowance. They also require that if any employee is diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia, Amazon must close its facility.
CNBC reports that at least five workers have been diagnosed with new coronary pneumonia in Amazon warehouses in Europe, respectively in Amazon warehouses in Spain and Italy. No wonder now that Amazon’s warehouse employees are frightened!
During the epidemic, because some offline shopping malls were closed, some schools were closed, and a large number of companies called for employees to work from home, causing a large number of Americans to start living at home. Online spending power is still very strong in the short term! That US seller’s 40,000 orders for a product is also a proof!
Therefore, domestic sellers should not be too frustrated. Amazon just temporarily does not accept some categories of products. In fact, Amazon is vigorously recruiting warehouse staff to restore distribution capabilities as soon as possible.
Now we can still do a series of rapid deployments.
FBA does not accept the goods, find a reputable overseas warehouse as soon as possible, and make the warehousing and distribution of this month a transition for overseas warehouses.
While you have time, you can research the latest traffic gameplay. Regardless of whether to continue to be a platform or an independent station in the future, traffic is of paramount importance. This year’s hottest global traffic artifact, TikTok, is the next big air vent, and it is worth grasping by cross-border e-commerce sellers.
In fact, now is a good time to calm down and develop and improve products!
The epidemic will be a big shuffle for many small and medium sellers. After this epidemic, a series of strategies such as selection, operation, flow, and logistics may undergo major changes. The boss is also worth spending more time, combining more information, and thinking about it!
For great entrepreneurs, any time can be a good time to make money. The 40,000 US sellers at that sunrise also gave us some new inspiration. Sellers need to be confident and pay more attention to survive this extraordinary period!
