In late November, 2016 Amazon began requesting additional approval in order to sell Dietary Supplements and Topical products on the US marketplace. In addition to the approval process they began requesting a "non-refundable fee". Many sellers welcomed this while others were livid at the request of a "pay to play" scenario from Amazon. Amazon since has relaxed the subcategory seller fees although with Amazon this may change at any time once again.
As of April, 2017, Amazon introduced many additional "subcategory" restrictions while opening up the ever popular "Health and Personal Care" category to all sellers. Thereafter, Amazon did the same for the Beauty Products category in May, 2017. We look for the Grocery and Gourmet Foods to follow this route soon as we head into the new year.
The subcategories Amazon now requires additional approval to sell in include:
Audio Visual Kids & Baby Furniture
Baby Activity Gear Learning Toys
