Amazon limits the addition of new sellers in certain categories to ensure a high level of quality so that customers are able to buy with confidence from all sellers on Amazon. In order to sell in the Grocery category, you will have to meet the requirements listed below. While our site-wide selling guidelines still apply, please note the additional requirements for this category.
In addition to the requirements listed above, you will need a Premises and Personal alcohol license in order to sell alcohol; Amazon reserves the right to request the sellers to provide proof of this license during the application process. The application will be declined if the proof is not provided. The alcohol by volume must be displayed as a volume percent (vol%) for all alcoholic beverages.
