FBA prohibited products

Substances regulated by the Narcotics Act

It is your responsibility to know whether the products you are shipping are regulated as hazardous materials. Hazardous materials that are shipped to Amazon fulfillment centers may be subject to disposal without reimbursement, even if they have not been previously identified by Amazon as hazardous materials. To learn more, see the Dangerous goods identification guide.

Sellers participating in Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) must comply with Amazon’s restricted products policy and FBA-specific product restrictions. The following products are prohibited from FBA:

  • Alcoholic beverages (including non-alcoholic beer)
  • Vehicle tires
  • Gift cards, gift certificates, and other stored-value instruments
  • Products with unauthorized marketing materials, such as pamphlets, price tags, or other non-Amazon stickers
    Note: Amazon will not accept pre-priced labels or products.
  • Products that require preparation but that have not been prepped according to FBA packaging and prep requirements
  • Loose packaged batteries
  • Damaged or defective units
    Note: Used condition products may have damage as long as the product is labeled with the appropriate condition.
  • Products with labels that were not properly registered with Amazon before shipment or that do not match the product that was registered
  • Products that do not comply with any agreement between Amazon and the seller
  • Products that have been illegally replicated, reproduced, or manufactured
