Selling Industrial & Scientific Products

Amazon limits the addition of new sellers in the Industrial & Scientific category to ensure that customers are able to buy with confidence from all sellers on Amazon.

The selling guidelines listed here for selling in the Industrial & Scientific category reflect buyer concern for product quality, product branding, and consumer safety. Adherence to import and export restrictions is also important to ensuring that buyers can purchase authentic, high-quality Industrial & Scientific products.

Category requirements

  • Sellers must have an active Professional selling plan. Learn more about Seller account features.
  • Sellers must conduct proper research to ensure that their Industrial & Scientific product listings comply with applicable local, state, federal, and international laws and regulations.
