Products in our other stores are restricted, and pages cannot be created for them at this time.

Product restrictions

Any seller on Amazon cannot sell certain products (restricted, prohibited, or exclusive). In certain cases, the category is reserved for authorized sellers or for Amazon Marketplace sellers.

The following product lines and stores are restricted to pre-approved sellers only at this time: Watches and Jewelry. You can submit a request to sell in the Watches and Jewelry categories by clicking here.

You must sign up for an Amazon Marketplace account to sell the following product lines: Books, Music, Video, and DVD.

Some media products sold on our international sites are ineligible for selling on the Amazon site, or can only be sold in a particular condition. This restriction includes Music, DVD, Video, Software and Video Games products.

In addition, merchants must adhere to Amazon rules for the creation of new product detail pages. You can review our page creation rules on the help pages for Selling Policies and Prohibited content.

Duplicate product pages are not allowed. This includes products listed on our other Amazon web sites. When you submit product details, Amazon will check to see if a matching page already exists in our catalog. If it does, that product will not be eligible for new page creation. Sellers should determine whether we already offer a product before attempting to create a new page.

Product identifiers

We require standard product identifiers for most stores. For Music, Video, DVD, Video Games, Software, Electronics, Kitchen & Home, and Microphones & Photo, and your product must have a UPC or EAN. You are not required to provide an ISBN when creating a page for a book published after 1973 in our Books store, but if an ISBN is available for the title, the ISBN should be used when creating the page. You can read more about ISBNs, UPCs and EANs here.
