For new sellers on Amazon, getting familiar with Amazon’s listing rules and requirements can be an initial challenge.

If you are new to Amazon, or expanding your listings into new categories, we recommend you spend some time in your Seller Central Account to become familiar with any unique rules or restrictions within that Category.

The majority of failed listings that we see in the Sellware error reports are due to invalid or incorrect information on a UPC or GTIN code.  For most categories, amazon requires a valid UPC, and Amazon may also check that the data regarding the UPC in your product listings matches the UPC registration (like Brand or Manufacturer).

More information on UPC / Exemption requirements can be found in your Seller Central Account, or at the following resources:
