Category, product, and listing restrictions

Certain products cannot be listed or sold on Amazon. Some products may not be listed as a matter of compliance with legal or regulatory restrictions (for example, illegal drugs) or per Amazon policy (for example, crime scene photos). We may restrict sellers from selling certain types of products for various reasons, including regulatory compliance, product safety, and in working with brands to achieve the best experience for customers. For more information and examples, see Restricted Products and Listings Restrictions.

For some product categories, sellers may not create product listings without prior approval from Amazon. In addition, sellers may be required to obtain additional approval to list certain products in certain categories. See the Products requiring approval page for more information.

Amazon's policies also prohibit specific types of product content.
