Amazon is limiting the range of goods available for customers in France and Italy due to the rapidly expanding corona pandemic, as the Reuters news agency reports. According to this, only "essential" products will be supplied for the time being, which do not include PC components.
"We will temporarily stop accepting orders for some non-essential products on Amazon.it and Amazon.fr."
focus on the essentials
Amazon understands essential products as goods that concern basic supplies:
- Baby, health and household products such as food
- Articles for beauty and personal care
- Pet supplies and products from the fields of industry and science
Why is Amazon going this way? Acc ording to Reuters, Amazon wants to protect its employees from being infected with the corona virus (COVID-19). In addition, employees should be able to concentrate on processing orders that customers currently need most.
How long is the offer limited? Amazon has not yet commented on this. However, it can be assumed that the measure will be based on the situation or the political decisions in the respective countries.

Are there any exceptions? Yes, despite the measures, the report says customers in France and Italy can still order "non-essential" third-party products. If these orders are not processed via Amazon Logistics, they should also be delivered. However, delays are expected.
The current situation in Germany
Are there similar threats in this country too? There are no official statements on this yet, but corresponding measures for Germany cannot be ruled out. In Germany too, a lot will depend on the development of the number of cases of corona infection and the resulting political measures.
Switching to online retailers other than Amazon is still possible in all areas, including PC components, but delays in delivery or other restrictions may also occur here, also because more and more people are switching to mail order due to restrictions in public life should.
