Selling in Listing with other sellers, how to determine
#2

Wow. Thanks of for the latest list.


#3

I don’t believe all of these can be ungated for a grand.

Like

Avon
Mary Kay
Otterbox
Victoria Secret
etc.

#4

Great post…just curious why Lego wasn’t mentioned

Edited by: Killing Time on Aug 27, 2016 7:54 PM
Never mind I see it isn’t your list…but credited from another source.


#5

Great detailed list.
Upon searching for some of these item we can find them listed by (cough cough) some sellers from Asian countries. I see many Michael Kors products and Gucci right now.


#6

It is for some people.


#7

Wow! that’s practically every brand on earth. Is AMZ morphing into Walmart online?


#8

Wait we can pay to ungate these?

I’ve been busy lately. Has something changed?


#9

What is Walmart online like? I have never used it. Is it bad?


#10

I believe the policy is that you pay the fee after you pass the check for ungating.


#11

Paw Patrol is not restricted.


#12

Frozen does not count as restricted as you could get it unblocked by producing store receipts (Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target) or invoices.


#13

Thanks for posting the list.


#14

Just giving this a visibility bump.


#15

So can you list any of the toys mentioned at this time?

Funko, hasbro, lego etc etc. It seems Im open to list
just about any toy at this point and have received nothing
about applying.


#16

Close on who? Wouldnt you think they would give the sellers some kind of heads up that you must apply?

As of right now pretty much all of those toys are open to me to list, where Microsoft is not.


#17

8/30 is going to be ugly.


#18

Yeah, I’m not sure I’ll open the forum without a helmet.

#19

Wait until after the 30th. That’s the date the gates are are supposed to close.


#20

Given Amazon’s spotty history with timely notifications, I’m zero percent convinced that all affected sellers have received emails.
