Hello from Amazon.
Because you have previously provided invoices for certain DVDs, we are granting you permission to sell these ASINs.
Please be aware that this approval applies only to items that you were approved for based on provided invoices, and does not constitute approval to sell on other ASINs with MSRPs (List Prices) equal to or over $25. As a reminder, listing products that you are not approved to sell may result in immediate suspension or removal of your selling privileges. If you wish to sell other ASINs with MSRPs (List Prices) equal to or over $25, you must request approval through the application process for the ‘Video, DVD, & Blu-ray’ category and provide invoices for respective type of DVDs during this process. If the MSRP (List Price) of the product is less than $25, you are already approved to sell and no further action is needed.
Note: We are not currently accepting store receipts for review.
Customers trust they can always buy with confidence on Amazon.com, and this listing restriction is intended to help preserve that trust. Seller feedback is important to us. You can provide feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
