Amazon restricts some categories to sell on their platform in order to maintain consumer confidence. These restricted categories are:
- Beer, Wine & Spirits
- Christmas Selling Guidelines in Toys & Games
- Health & Personal Care
- Organic Foods, Organic Feed and Organic Pet Food
To sell in these categories, you’d have to apply for approval. The application process is simple with certain documentation for Amazon to consider your application. If your application fails, they may not disclose the reason why but you may again re-apply. Please see below three key documents:
- Sales invoices of within 180 days that originate from a manufacturer/supplier or a wholesaler: This needs to be an invoice with at least 10 units. Your company address and seller’s address and contact details must be clear.
- Company registration document
- VAT certificate
The result can take 24 hours or more and sometimes sooner. If you need any help with regards to category ungating, please get in touch with us.
Thank you so much for your help, I would never have managed this without you.
