Have you tried listing a product on Amazon and discover that it's restricted for some reason? Category approval doesn't mean you can simply sell any item you wish unfortunately. The reasons a products gets marked as "restricted" can be that a product is easily counterfeited (knock-offs) to brands wishing to sell their products exclusively on Amazon (or other sellers) so their perceived value will not decrease over time. Brand owners of restricted products will protect themselves against piggy-back or hijacked listings. Violators are normally reported to Amazon immediately and a "cease and desist" letter is sent to sellers violating their infringing upon their brand. Should you not comply, you will soon hear from their attorneys.
To help you avoid these headaches and hassles we have compiled an "Amazon Brand Restricted List" of known brands to stay clear of when making purchasing decisions. Amazon currently doesn't offer an official brand restricted list on their website. We suggest you keep a recent copy of our list with you while sourcing. You may also download the "Amazon Seller" application on your phone to quickly check if a product has any restrictions and what condition may be sold, if any. Always check the conditions for an item.
You may find that some brands listed below only have "certain items" in their product lines as restricted while some requires you to be an authorized reseller. Some brand items may be listed, but only in "Used" condition. You may find that some brands love to send cease and desist letters without even being brand registered within Amazon. If you ever find yourself in a restricted brand situation with a brand owner we suggest you remove yourself from the listing(s) as requested. Always protect your Amazon seller account from suspension!
At the end of August, 2016 we got many inquiries about our thoughts on the new "Brand Restrictions" Amazon is imposing with fees. Until more time as past we have decided to not give our opinion, although we would advise many to move towards your own private label brands to ensure you are always protected in a sense of a brand you physically control. The recent changes have affected retail arbitrage sellers the most. At this time we have listed many brands we have found to be brand restricted and incur an Amazon fees below, designated by the (Fee) tag.
Please help our community and submit any brands not currently in our list. Please remember to bookmark this page as we update the restricted brands often.
