Amazon reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to remove a product from any Amazon Handmade category. We will notify the impacted Artisan regarding the removal and the impacted Artisan will have the option to appeal this decision. Notifications will be sent to the Artisan through Seller Central and will include details on what is needed by Amazon to conduct an audit, as well as the timeframe in which the Artisan will need to provide Amazon with this information.
All listings must adhere to our listing guide, including but not limited to our Title, Image, and Product Description Standards. See our Listing Guide about when and how to use customizations for your products.
