Amazon Seller Tips Retail Arbitrage

List of Restricted Brands on Amazon

Amazon restricted brands from being sold by unauthorized third-party sellers recently.  We wrote about it in detail on our recent post Is Retail Arbitrage Coming to an End?

In order to help sellers in the retail arbitrage community, we have compiled a list of the brands that required approval on Amazon before being sold by third parties. This is NOT an official resource, but rather a compilation of the brands we’ve been able to find from non-official sources. Check the list out below.

WILL YOU HELP US UPDATE THIS BRANDS LIST?

If you’ve encountered any gated brands, fees, or other information that would add to this discussion, we invite you to post your comments below. We’ll update the list as we can.
