Amazon.com Inc.'s grocery delivery service AmazonFresh will restrict local third-party vendors from selling on its platform beginning May 30, Business Insider reported May 14.
The e-commerce giant is transitioning the local program as it plans to buy the products wholesale and sell it directly to customers, Business Insider added, citing an email sent by Amazon to its vendor partners.
The Seattle-based company's grocery delivery service previously let vendors enroll in its Local Market Seller initiative and sell their products to be delivered to customers alongside its typical Fresh orders.
An Amazon spokesman did not comment to Business Insider on the changes.
After acquiring Whole Foods Market Inc., Amazon discontinued its grocery delivery service in some parts of the U.S. in November 2017.
