Even if you are approved to sell in a category, that doesn’t mean that you can sell ANYTHING in that category. There are many Amazon restricted brands and they are restricted for many different reasons. Some companies may have exclusive agreements with Amazon or another seller. Some brands are counterfeited so heavily that they require sellers to obtain their goods directly through the manufacturer, and you will need to be approved by them as an authorized reseller before you can list their items. Some items can be listed, but only in Used condition.
It’s always a good idea to have the Amazon Seller app downloaded on your phone so you can check if a product is restricted when you are out sourcing for items. When you scan an item, it will indicate whether you can sell the item, and if so, in what conditions you can sell it. If you are sourcing online, try adding the product to a shipment through the “Add a Product” feature under the Inventory tab at the top left side of your screen . You will get an error message if you are restricted. Even if it does not show restricted, check the pull down menu for the condition. If you are only allowed to sell as used, you need to decide if you can sell the item at a significant discount, or send it in as used, and then you can list it on eBay and have Amazon ship it for you when it sells.
It is important to note that even if a brand is on this list it does not mean that every item under a brand is restricted.
