Please refrain from We discourage any use using of HTML content on detail pages as outlined on our Product detail page rules Help page.

We encourage you to update any product detail page for your listings with an HTML tag ahead of the date indicated above. You can use Seller Central or your usual channel for such updates.

Any product description containing HTML tags in the product detail page which are not supported after July 17, 2021, will stop showing HTML formatting.

Gees Amazon. You’re killing us today …

First, Policy update: Automatic verification of customer A-to-z Guarantee Claims with proof of tracking, and now this.

You should leave in the paragraph and bold, and even allow bullets. This is easily programmed in I would think.

Description doesn’t even show up for some listings if they have A+ Content so doesn’t even matter if its readable. I’ve just been using it to place more keywords. HTML formatting just takes up space.

This sucks for handmade sellers because until recently the only way we could arrange our listings with even a line break, forget about the use of bullets, was to use html. Major nightmare for us to have to edit all of these listings!

I attempted to edit a listing that does have HTML code in the description, but Amazon did not accept the change and the description with the HTML code is still live. I did not change anything else in the description other than removing the HTML code. Is there a route I can take other than calling seller support? I also waited longer than 24 hours.
