Your Guide to Amazon Restricted Categories

Your Guide to Amazon Restricted Categories

Looking to unravel Amazon’s product compliance and safety guidelines? Here’s your all-encompassing guide to Amazon Restricted Categories.

Selling on Amazon is supposed to be easy… and judging by our community’s success and enthusiasm, it is (for the most part). However, any marketplace (physical or digital) is only as credible as the rules put in place to protect its customers. As such, Amazon sellers are responsible for playing by said rules. 

While we would normally take this time to discuss how easy product and keyword research is with the right tools, or perhaps some shortcuts to bring traffic to your Amazon listing, today we’re discussing that scary locked door in the corner of the room: Amazon restricted (also known as “gated”) categories and products.

If you’d like to scale your business up on Amazon, or if you feel like sales have plateaued, we can help you get through. Consider taking your profitability to the next level and freeing up some of your time by giving us a call, we’d love to help! Please visit us at to learn more.
