Only full retail versions of physical software may be sold on Amazon. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with this list of prohibited items:
Sellers are not allowed to sell any software that has been copied by anyone other than the original software manufacturer.
In order to protect customers, sellers and rights owners from digital piracy, sellers are not allowed to sell digitally downloadable software by any means whatsoever, including by way of activation codes, registration links, license keys, serial numbers, or any other credentials related to software products. For the avoidance of doubt, this prohibition includes, but is not limited to, providing access/activation information by email, Amazon messaging system, third party sites, any electronic channels, or by way of printed or physical form.
Sale of any software that was not designed or intended for retail sale by the manufacturer is prohibited for sale on Amazon. This includes:
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) software comes bundled with, installed on, or packaged with computer hardware. You cannot sell this software on Amazon unless you are also selling it with the associated hardware and listing it against the hardware ASIN.
Software distributed freely by manufacturers, including freeware, shareware and promotional software.
Software distributed for the purpose of troubleshooting, testing, and evaluation.
Software distributed free of charge by the copyright owner.
Copies that are made to protect the purchase of a software title. This software cannot be distributed, shared, or sold.
Software that is no longer usable because it has passed its subscription time period.
Academic software is software sold to students, faculty, and educational institutions expressly for use by those individuals and institutions. Since Amazon has no way of verifying that a seller or buyer has an academic connection, we prohibit the sale of most academic software on Amazon. To determine if the academic software you want to list is allowed on Amazon, follow these guidelines:
Academic software that requires pre-purchase verification is prohibited for sale on Amazon because we have no way of verifying that the seller or buyer meets the requirements at the time of purchase.
Academic software that requires post-purchase verification is permitted to be sold on Amazon. If the license is non-transferable and/or the buyer will not be eligible for technical support or upgrades, then it is prohibited for sale on Amazon.
