Over the years that I have been selling on Amazon I have run across a few brands that for whatever reason could not be resold on Amazon.com.  When I first got started the list seemed pretty small, but as time goes by the list gets bigger and bigger. You may be wondering, “Why do products get restricted?”  A few of the reasons that I have heard for brands being restricted are because:

  • items are easily counterfeited
  • items are easily stolen from retail stores
  • the brand doesn’t want the perceived value to be decreased
  • the brand is sold exclusively elsewhere

If you haven’t yet come across trying to list an item and then getting a red flag thrown up, you will.  The good news is, it happens to all of us sooner or later.  This is one of the reasons I always try to test my new items before going all in.  If you just have a couple of the items, finding out that you can not sell them isn’t a huge hit. There are multiple lists around the web with the brands that have had restrictions placed on them.  Unfortunately, Amazon does not have an official list, so we have to go by what other sellers share with each other.  I have combined the lists I have found that other’s have been putting together. Please keep in mind that some brands may only have certain items restricted, and some may be available to some sellers.  This list just contains items that others have said they ran into problems with.
