Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I find the MSRP?

A: The MSRP for a DVD title is shown as the "List Price" on the Product Detail Page.

Q: Does this policy apply to Blu-Ray discs?

A: Sellers who do not have any sales in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category between September 6, 2013 and September 15, 2014, will need to apply for access to the entire Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category before selling any items, including Blu-ray discs. For sellers with at least one sale in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category between September 6, 2013 and September 15, 2014, this policy only applies to DVDs with MSRPs of $25 or greater.

Q: What about used DVDs?

A: This policy applies to both new and used DVDs. Note that there is no separate MSRP/List Price for used products.

Q: What about items with no MSRP/List Price?

A: These items will be unaffected by the new policy. However, note that sellers who do not have any sales in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category between September 6, 2013 and September 15, 2014, will need to apply for access to the entire Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category.

Q: Can you explain the Professional selling plan requirement?

A: Any sellers who would like to offer products with MSRPs of $25 or greater will need to be on a Professional selling plan. Individual sellers may apply to sell products with MSRPs of $25 or greater, but must upgrade to a Professional selling plan before beginning to sell these products.

Q: What if I don’t have invoices?

A: We cannot consider applications that do not include at least 3 invoices dated within the last 180 days.

Q: What if I produce my own content, or own the rights to the content?

A: If you choose to apply, you should indicate this in your application. However, note that for sellers who have at least one sale in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category between September 6, 2013 and September 15, 2014, items without an MSRP/List Price or an MSRP/List Price under $25 are not affected by this new policy.

Q: How long will it take Amazon to review my application?

A: We will contact you within 2 business days to ask follow-up questions regarding your application. Once you have submitted your information, we will contact you with our decision within 3 business days.

Q: I have provided everything requested, but my application was not approved. What do I do now?

A: We regret that we are not able to approve all requests to sell without restrictions in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category. If you find at a later date that the nature of your business has substantially changed, or that your performance metrics have improved, you may try reapplying at least six months following your previous application.

Q: If I sold products in the Video, DVD, & Blu-ray category between September 6, 2013 and September 15, 2014, and I don’t want to sell DVDs with an MSRP (List Price) of $25 or greater, do I need to apply?

A: No – there is no need to apply in this case.

Q: What if I change my mind later?

A: If you do not apply now and decide later that you would like to sell DVDs with MSRPs (List Price) of $25 or greater, you can apply for approval at that time. As of November 17, 2014, you will not be able to list any product with an MSRP of $25 or greater unless you have completed the application process and have been approved.

Q: What types of invoices should I provide in my application?

A: You should provide invoices from the largest source(s) of your DVD product. Your invoices should also contain an accurate representation of the types and genres of DVDs you plan to sell. A minimum of 3 invoices are required to process your application, but you may include additional invoices.

Please note: If you are approved but later choose to sell products that are significantly different from those you were approved to sell, you will need to submit an additional application. Listing products you are not approved to sell may result in removal of your selling privileges in the Video, DVD & Blu-ray category.
