Amazon's position in the cross-border e-commerce platform has long been known. It is said that cross-border e-commerce and cross-border logistics industry complement each other. Xiaobian knew Amazon before entering the cross-border logistics industry. After stepping into the cross-border logistics industry, in order to better communicate with customers, the first e-commerce platform to understand is Amazon. Among them, there are also many small white sellers who have just joined the cross-border industry in our background, wanting to know which products are banned on the Amazon platform. The so-called knowing oneself and knowing the enemy is the only way to win a hundred battles. Today, we will briefly talk about "Amazon banned products" to help small white sellers grow at the beginning!
When merchants set up shop on Amazon, there are the following categories of prohibited products:
(1) Products that do not comply with laws and regulations. As sellers are legally responsible for their actions and transactions, sellers must be aware of the legal parameters of any products they sell on Amazon.com, including personal product sales outside the United States.
(2) Commodities that violate third-party intellectual property rights, intellectual property infringement policies and anti-counterfeiting policies
Amazon attaches great importance to intellectual property and patent rights. If the sale of goods involves infringement of copyright or patent rights, the platform will most likely be banned if they are found.
(3) Offensive and controversial commodities and recalled commodities.
In addition to the categories mentioned above, there are also some Amazon banned products that are easily overlooked in the selection, such as
( 1) Lithium-ion battery
All Amazon sites prohibit the sale of six sizes of lithium-ion batteries and all products containing these types of batteries.
Models are as follows: 14500, 16340, 18650, 20700, 21700 and 26650b)
( 2) Unlock tool
Although the lock-picking tools have been very popular on the platform for a period of time, they may cause burglary behavior. In the mentality of preventing problems before they occur, such products are prohibited from being sold.
( 3) Pinhole camera: This type of product may involve personal privacy issues and has been completely banned by Amazon.
( 4) Laser light
( 5) Some bulbs: such as transparent incandescent lamps (15w, 25w, 40w, 60w, 70w, 75w and 100w), frosted incandescent lamps and halogen lamps (R7, G9, GU5.3, G4 and GY 6.35 socket types except) sales are prohibited
Many categories of products on Amazon are not "completely banned", they can only be sold after applying for sales authorization, such as food, toys, lamps, beauty, external skin care products, pet food, auto parts, cooking supplies, etc. Depends on the situation. There may be some differences in the materials required for each category application, and the seller only needs to provide the documents as required.
The above prohibited products do not include all categories. If you want to know more, sellers can check the relevant details through "Categories, Commodities and Commodity Restrictions" and "Recalls and Commodity Safety" in Amazon Seller Central.
Let me share with you an operation method to avoid restricted goods:
Look for similar products on the Amazon front desk homepage. If you find that the specific page of the similar product does not have a similar selling button like Sell on Amazon or Sell Yours, it means that the category of the product needs to be reviewed and approved according to Amazon's category policy before it can be sold. . Interested sellers can go to the actual operation.
