The last week on Amazon has had fewer changes compared to prior weeks. Depending upon category, we're seeing additional slight down trends on sales. Promotions are still suspended, and shipping is still delayed on many products though these ship delays generally end in the next 10 days.
Instead of a newsletter, we've instead organized our thoughts on setting up Dropship on Amazon. With out of stock issues, and fulfillment network issues, it's something lots of brands have been exploring. We've spoken about this a lot recently, and believe that it's only going to increase in importance this year, especially for perishables brands.
