Notice! Which Amazon prohibited items cannot be sold (1)?


New sellers who do Amazon will always be full of enthusiasm for the future and place great expectations. However, there will be a gap between reality and ideals. Amazon contraband is the content prohibited by the Amazon platform.


If the content uploaded by the seller is prohibited by the Amazon platform, once Amazon believes that the product sold by the seller is prohibited by the platform, it will directly cancel the product list, restrict, suspend the listing privilege, and exempt you from the sales privilege.
