Product groups for sales on Amazon

There are three groups of products on Amazon: allowed, prohibited and requiring confirmation.

Those requiring confirmation include a group of products that are most often counterfeited, as well as products that are prohibited from sale in some states.

If your product meets the requirements, you need to write a letter to Support to obtain permission to sell.

This category includes the following products:
• DVD
• video
• clocks/watches
• wine
• sunglasses
• shoes
• bags
• travel accessories
• large home appliances
• auto goods
• jewelry
• beauty products
• clothes and accessories
• collectible books
• other collectibles
• works of fine art
• gift cards
• food
• health and personal hygiene.

There are 36 subcategories of prohibited items. These categories are also divided into: goods that can not be sold rather than can, and goods that absolutely cannot be sold.

For example, Amazon bans the sale of lottery tickets and currency slot machines. BUT, it is allowed to sell non-functional slot machines as toys or for display.
