FBA Prohibited Products

It is your responsibility to know whether or not 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.

Important: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal, disposal, or return of inventory, the blocking of future shipments, or an additional charge for additional preparation or noncompliance.

Sellers participating in FBA must not only comply with the Amazon Restricted Products policy but also comply with FBA-specific product restrictions. The following products are prohibited from FBA:

  • Any product that cannot be lawfully sold and distributed in all US jurisdictions
  • Alcoholic beverages (including non-alcoholic beer)
  • Sky lanterns or floating lanterns
  • Vehicle tires
  • Gift cards, gift certificates and other stored value instruments
  • Products with unauthorized marketing materials (e.g., pamphlets, price-tags, or other non-Amazon stickers)
    Note: Amazon will not accept pre-priced labels or products.
  • Products that require prep 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

    We reserve the rights to destroy and to deny removal requests for any inventory identified as counterfeit.

  • Products that Amazon otherwise determines are unsuitable
