FBA Prohibited Products exceptions

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.

Products that cannot lawfully be sold and distributed in all U.S. jurisdictions are prohibited from the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) program.

However, we have implemented rules to restrict FBA delivery to certain U.S. jurisdictions.

As a result, the following products are now permitted in FBA because they will not be delivered to restricted jurisdictions.

Weapons and imitation weapons

  • Airsoft guns
  • BB, air, pellet, and airsoft ammunition
  • Blowguns
  • Non-powdered weapons such as BB guns, pellet guns, and air rifles
  • Paintball guns
  • Spear guns for spear fishing
  • Stun guns or Tasers
  • Toy guns

For more information, see Weapons and Imitation Weapons.

Other products

  • Baby crib bumpers
  • Batteries that are not registered with state recycling programs
  • Cigarette papers and wraps
  • Fire alarms, smoke alarms, and carbon monoxide alarms that do not comply with California law
