Troubleshoot issues with product listings

Sellers are required to obtain pre-approval from Amazon before listing in certain product categories. Even if selling in a category does not require approval, selling certain products (such as Frustration-Free Packaging products, certain products in the Software category, and laser pointers and related products) might require approval. See Categories and products requiring approval for more information on how to apply for approval.

This page outlines some of the page creation issues you may encounter when attempting to list on Amazon. Note that other brands or products may become restricted for various reasons. Amazon will notify you of such changes either by email or through Help.

Restricted Beauty brands

We are creating a new Beauty experience and implementing listing restrictions on select brands. New offers on these brands are not currently being accepted. See Beauty for more information.

Restricted DVDs

We have received reports that some customers have received DVD products that are inconsistent with the product detail pages for some items. As a result, we are enacting listing restrictions to preserve customer trust in the Amazon service. Although we might permit certain sellers to continue to list restricted DVDs, Amazon is not accepting new offers at this time. Seller Support will not be able to provide further information or approve requests to list.
