Coronavirus Amazon FBA products restriction starts to be relaxed
Following Amazon’s announcement that they would restrict incoming Coronavirus Amazon FBA products to essentials only. This list is now starting to be relaxed with more products accepted but Amazon are working on a product by product basis so there is no definitive list we can give you.

- Baby Products
- Health & Household
- Beauty & Personal Care (including personal care appliances)
- Industrial & Scientific
- Pet Supplies
Expanded Coronavirus Amazon FBA products list
You will need to check Amazon’s new tool to check which products are eligible for shipment creation. This will vary by product according to demand and current inventory levels within Amazon warehouse both from your inventory and your competitors and Amazon themselves.
“We are following up on our announcement of March 17. We continue to focus our available capacity on the highest priority products that customers need at this time, while also adhering to social distancing guidance within our fulfilment centres to keep our employees safe and healthy.
While we will continue prioritising the products we can receive beyond April 5, we are now able to broaden the list. Given our constrained capacity, we are doing this on an item-by-item basis. We have updated the Restock Inventory page and Restock report in Seller Central so you can check which products are eligible for shipment creation. We consider many factors when determining eligibility, including high-demand products customers need now; current inventory levels and inventory in transit; fulfilment centre capacity; and our ability to adhere to the latest health guidelines.
We will regularly update the Restock Inventory page and the Restock report as capacity allows us to receive additional products.
You can find answers to frequently asked questions on this Help page. Please note that Selling Partner Support does not have further guidance.
All of us at Amazon are working hard to restore regular operations, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.”
