Most products require product codes to be listed on Amazon. Product codes are also required to check or search for items that have already been listed.
If a product does not come under the Amazon Brand Registry, in certain cases such as those described below, an application can be submitted - including all of the information required for assessment - to obtain exceptional product code exemption and permission to list a product without a product code. (Note: Only Pro Merchant is eligible for product listing without a product code.)
Information about the product code terms and conditions for each product category and about certain exceptions/exemptions can be found here.
Products without product codes can be listed for Pro Merchant only.
