Do you know exactly what you can and can’t sell on Amazon? It’s vital information. Many account suspensions stem from listing or selling a prohibited product on the global retailer’s website. In each product category, Amazon has a list of prohibited items, as well as items that require a seller to obtain advance approval.
To complicate matters, sellers participating in Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), have a unique list of prohibited items. Sellers who have Amazon handle fulfillment on their behalf should also review the FBA Product Restrictions page to make sure the products they want to sell are permitted under the FBA program.
Never assume you are permitted to sell a product on Amazon simply because it isn’t on the list of prohibited items. If you are unsure about your ability to sell a product on Amazon, double check with the company before listing it. It’s important to review each product prior to listing it on Amazon, as information about prohibited products changes periodically. Always be aware of any policies or restrictions that apply to the products you sell.
Selling a product that’s prohibited can result in the suspension — or even removal — of selling privileges. It’s one of the more serious violations. Account suspension is a significant risk of selling products on Amazon. Even if you and your business carefully follow Amazon’s rules and regulations, mistakes still can happen.
