Here’s a notice we received from Amazon:
Amazon will be conducting planned maintenance on our order management system from 3:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Saturday, October 18, 2014 – Sunday, October 19th.
During this time, sellers will not receive information about new orders via “Sold, Ship Now” e-mails, Order Reports, or Manage Orders in Seller Central. During the planned maintenance, customers can still place orders on Amazon.com, and you will receive information about new orders once the planned maintenance is complete.
Orders received before 3:00 p.m. will not be affected and sellers will still be able to confirm, cancel, and update these orders during the planned maintenance.
During Amazon’s planned downtime Sellery and SellerEngine Plus will continue repricing your inventory, without interruption. If you have any questions about this Amazon announcement, please email us at email@example.com.
And if you’re at a loss for what to do since you can’t constantly check your Amazon orders, I recommend tuning in to watch the University of Florida Gators take on the Missouri Tigers in Gainesville, Florida (7PM Eastern). It’s homecoming weekend and the Swamp will be rocking!
