String lights

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

Amazon's listing policies require all seasonal, holiday, and other decorative string lights to be certified to the UL588 standard.

Amazon defines decorative string lights as lighting products and accessories that are portable, plug-connected, for temporary use, and have a maximum 120-volt input voltage rating.

In order to sell these products on Amazon, you must apply and submit the following to electronics-safety@amazon.com:


  1. Your company name and seller ID
  2. Your contact information (email address and phone number)
  3. A list of ASINs you are applying to sell
  4. Documentation proving that all decorative string lights and related products you are applying to sell are certified under UL588
  5. Either (i) confirmation that you are the manufacturer of the products, or (ii) copies of invoices from your supplier issued in the last 180 days which reflect your sales volume
  6. Product image of the plug

By applying to sell these products, you certify that all materials you submit in conjunction with your application are true, authentic, and accurate. Note that Amazon may remove your selling privileges for failure to meet these requirements.
