List of Amazon Gated & Restricted Brands

amazon gated and restricted brands

While most of our clients are established Amazon sellers of their own trademarked products, there is one topic that we constantly get asked about in relation to Amazon arbitrage: restricted brands!

If selling on Amazon FBA is something you’ve only recently started looking into, you may be unaware of this, but many brands require approval to sell on Amazon.

In most instances, this means having permission from the brand owner, as well as sourcing the products from an approved supplier.

This is important because if you sell a gated product without approval, you will absolutely get your listing taken down, and you’ll more than likely be suspended from Amazon too.

Gated brands tend to be brands that specialise in a specific area, but are highly successful. In other words, a major retail store that sells thousands of different product won’t be gated.

But something like Nintendo, that specialises in video games, likely will.

If you’re selling a product under a brand like this, we highly recommend keeping any certificates, distribution letters, or written permission you have that may help your case.

Amazon restricted brands are separate to restricted categories, so just because you’ve been accepted to sell in a category, doesn’t mean you can sell restricted brands there.

Amazon Restricted Brands 2020

A bit further down we will provide a full list of restricted brands on Amazon, but with Amazon themselves constantly updating the list, chances are there will be some missing ones.

But why are there restricted brands on Amazon at all?

Some may have an exclusive distribution deal with Amazon themselves or a major seller, meaning they do not want anybody else to have access to their products.

Others may be so regularly counterfeited that Amazon is only willing to receive inventory directly from the manufacturer.

Other Amazon restricted products are simply not allowed to be sold new, but Used condition is fine.

Where to Sell Amazon Restricted Brands

If you do your research properly, it’s not too difficult to avoid restricted brands.

The Amazon Seller App can be a lifesaver for this – if you’re into arbitrage, you likely already use it to scan barcodes when out and about.

This app will directly tell you if a product is restricted, and if so, what you need to do to be able to sell it – so this makes the whole thing a lot easier.

But what if you miss this and buy a bunch of stock that you’re not allowed to sell on Amazon?

It’s often a good idea to simply sell it on eBay – individually if you have the time, or as a job lot if you don’t.

Another option is to look into an Amazon Ungating Service to see if they can get you approved to sell in the category (keep reading for more on that).

What Brands are Restricted on Amazon?

While reading the above, there’s a good chance you had one simple question on your mind: “Where is the list of brands that are restricted on Amazon?”.

It’s a good question, so here is the list!

We will do our best to keep updating this list and make it the authoritative list on the subject, but with Amazon able to change this whenever they want, we are likely to always be slightly behind.

If you have any luck selling any of the brands listed here, or if you find a new restricted brand that isn’t listed, feel free to Contact Us – we will be happy to discuss our recommendations for ungating options, update our list, or whatever else is required to keep on top of things.

If you’re looking for the opposite list and asking “Where can I find which product brands are on Amazon?”, unfortunately the list is just too big to be found reliably anywhere online.

However, if a brand isn’t listed here, your next best option is to get hold of a barcode for it and try to create a listing, or if a listing already exists, try to set up a shipment.

If it stops you, the brand is restricted – let us know so we can add it here!

If it allows you, there are no restrictions on the brand and you’re good to go.

On with the list:
