Products in our other stores are restricted, and pages cannot be created for them at this time. We do have plans to extend this service to other stores, and we ask merchants not to list restricted products until the appropriate store is available. Listing restricted products is prohibited, and we will remove product pages found to be in violation; we may also take steps to close a seller's account.

However, it is possible for you to offer products that do not fit into any of the existing categories, like posters for example. As long as the product cannot be placed into one of the restricted stores, a product detail page can be created for it.

Product restrictions

Some media products cannot be sold on or may only be listed in certain conditions. Certain media products may not be listed in "New" condition on Other media products sold on our international sites are ineligible for selling on the site. This restriction includes Music, DVD, Video, Software and Video Games products.

The following product lines and stores are restricted to pre-approved sellers only at this time: Health & Personal Care, Beauty, Jewellery, Watches, Clothing, Sexual Wellness and Grocery.

In addition, sellers must adhere to Amazon rules for the creation of new product detail pages. You can review our page creation rules in our Policies section, as well as the help pages for Product Restrictions.

Duplicate product pages are not allowed. This includes products listed on our other Amazon web sites. When you submit product details, Amazon will check to see if a matching page already exists in our catalog. If it does, that product will not be eligible for new page creation. Sellers should determine whether we already offer a product before attempting to create a new page.

Product identifiers

We require standard product identifiers for most stores: For Baby Products, Camera & Photo, Computer & Video Games, Electronics, Home, Kitchen & Garden, Music, Software, Tools & Hardware, Toys & Games, and Video & DVD, your product must have a UPC or EAN. You are not required to provide an ISBN when creating a page in our Books store, but if an ISBN is available for the title, the ISBN should be used when creating the page. You can read more about ISBNs, UPCs and EANs here.
