Amazon Prime Day has been occuring in July for the past five years, but the company has moved the event in 2020 to September. Amazon has sent out emails to all of the resellers and vendor and are now allowing unlimited shipments of non-essential goods to warehouses.
Amazon has been struggling for months to respond to a rush of customer orders during the public health crisis and had to institute many new safety protocols and shipping restrictions to be able to continue delivering food and basic needs.
