Amazon India announces measures to help SMBs amid second wave of COVID-19

Amazon India announced that it is waiving 50 percent of the 'sell-on-amazon' or 'referral fee' from May 1 to 31 for a section of sellers and will reimburse storage fees and long-term storage fees charged for keeping sellers' products at its warehouses for merchants based out of non-serviceable pin codes.

The company said it is also taking steps across the board to mitigate any negative impact on sellers' performance metrics due to defaults caused by the pandemic and the resulting restrictions, on the sellers' account health.

"We understand this situation is impacting small and medium businesses (SMBs) the most, and we are taking a host of measures to help our sellers navigate the economic challenges caused by the pandemic," Amazon India Vice President Manish Tiwary said in a blog post.
