Updated Restricted Products on Amazon – Guest Post


BRANDS THAT ARE RESTRICTED TO SELL ON AMAZON FBA
Megan Williford (Guest Post)

Restricted
My first experience with restricted products came when I was getting ready to list a TON of Bliss products I had sourced at TJ Maxx. With a huge smile on my face, and dollar signs dancing in my eyes, I got busy adding the to my inventory, only to discover that they were restricted.

How did this happen? Did I miss something? Google is my friend and I turned to it in this great time of need, gently weeping over my 12 bars of Bliss Mammoth Minty Scrub Soap.

I came across numerous sites that had “Unofficial” Amazon lists of restricted brands. I have tried to hit every list and Seller Forum and here is what I came up with:

This list is ever changing, and certainly not Official. Amazon claims that they do not maintain a Restricted Brands List.

Amazon can and will be adding Brands. If you have a question about a specific ASIN, contact Seller Support.

There is no way this List is complete, so if you see a Brand missing or you get a notice, please let me know so I can keep this list as up to date as possible.

To Your Success on Amazon,
