Who They Are and What Do They Want?

 You may probably not know that along with restricted products on Amazon, there are also a huge number of restricted brands that you should stay away from. Therefore, before choosing products to sell on Amazon, you should consider whether these products are restricted on Amazon or not. And this Brandomania sequel is exactly about that!

How Are You Going to Pay for All This?

It is a general rule of thumb that one of the most bothersome things that could happen to any Amazon seller is getting hit with an IP suspension. Therefore, you should understand clearly that by selling restricted brands, you are playing with fire because you can easily get suspended because of an Intellectual Property Violation. Therefore, you have to put all your efforts in order to avoid any these issues within your business. But first of all, let’s try to understand the reason why the brands can restrict the sale of their products on Amazon.

For Reasons of Security

Why would a brand not want to be sold Amazon when it’s clearly the biggest online platform on planet Earth? Believe us, there are tons of reasons why the brands prefer to keep their products away from Amazon. First of all, it helps the brand protect the buyers from getting fake products. It’s by no accident that the biggest part of restricted brands on Amazon are luxury brands who care about their reputation.  Another reason is that most of the manufacturers do not want their products to be sold elsewhere except their brand’s stores. If the brand specializes on selling health or baby products, the probability that it will not allow others to sell its products on Amazon is high. By their logic, it is better to stop others from selling several products than causing displeasure for customers.

However, Amazon, in its turn, can restrict the brand for selling on its platform. In most cases, it is done when the brand does not meet Amazon’s safety requirements.
