Restricted Brands on Amazon

This is a list of restricted brands on Amazon. If you try and list any of these brands the system will usually block you from doing so. But if you do manage to list one of them and Amazon finds out they will kill your listing and issue a policy warning.

There is no way to know if this is a complete list, as Amazon doesn't publish it. This list was assembled from various sources and is updated as we get new information. If you happen to come across any other companies that should be on this list and aren't please use the contact form on the website to email me and I will update the list.  

You might also want to investigate CheckPermission.  Experienced Amazon (U.S.) sellers, use CheckPermission for instant, on-page notification that tells them whether not they are authorized to sell any Amazon product!
