E308: Dealing with the Coronavirus as an Ecommerce SellerMarch 30, 2020 in Ecom-Crew-Podcast
The Coronavirus is probably one of the biggest topics that everyone’s talking about right now, and for good reason. It’s affecting everyone’s mentality, health, and for us e-commerce sellers, it’s attacking our own livelihood. Supply chains in China have been disrupted, Amazon has paused its fulfilment services, slowing down delivery times to a crawl for customers.
It’s a frustrating time for all, but know that you are not alone. In this episode, Dave and I will be talking about how the Coronavirus has affected us personally and we’ll be giving out a few tips on how to keep your business afloat during this unforeseen ‘dry’ season, including using government assistance and Amazon loans to your advantage.
We’ve actually covered the Coronavirus in an earlier episode where Dave spoke with our friend Cameron Walker, who is also an ecommerce entrepreneur and was in China before this virus became a global pandemic. At that point in time, we didn’t really know how big this would get, but it’s definitely interesting to hear firsthand of what daily life is line in a city forced into isolation. You can find it here.
