the Amazon catalog. Sellers with a Professional selling plan may also create product
detail pages by uploading inventory files or sending XML file feeds.
When you create product detail pages on Amazon, you agree to
the following rules and restrictions:
The inclusion of any of the following
information in detail page titles, descriptions, bullet points, or images is
Pornographic, obscene or offensive
Phone numbers, physical mail

Time-sensitive information (i.e.,
dates of promotional tours, seminars, lectures, etc.).
When creating a listing or when matching
a listing to an existing listing, sellers must follow Amazon listing standards for
any product sold on Amazon. Failure to do so creates a
negative customer experience and may result in your selling privileges being
temporarily or permanently removed. This includes but is not limited to the
All products must be appropriately
and accurately classified to the most specific locations available.
Incorrectly classifying products is prohibited.
Product titles, product descriptions, and bullet points must be clearly written and should assist the customer in understanding the product. These attributes should comply with the product style guide recommendations.
All product images must meet Amazon general image standards
as well as any applicable category-specific image guidelines.
Using page-creation tools for any
purpose other than creating product details pages is prohibited.
The use of false product identification
information—including UPC codes or publication dates—in product detail pages is
The Add a Product tool is to be used only to create pages for
products that do not already exist within Amazon's catalogs, including other
Amazon websites (Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Amazon.com.mx, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr,
Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.in, Amazon.es Amazon.it, Amazon.co.jp, Amazon.cn and
Amazon.ae).Creating a product detail page for a product already in the
Amazon catalogue is prohibited.
Using product detail pages to
cross-merchandise or cross-promote a product is prohibited.
For Books, Music, Videos, and DVDs
(BMVD) a single detail page may not be used to advertise more than one product.
BMVD-only product bundles must be defined by the publisher or manufacturer and
have a single ISBN, UPC, or EAN that is different from the product identifier for
any unique item in the bundle.
Display of trademarks on generic
products: A product is considered generic if, according to the product pictures, a
trademark is not permanently affixed to the product or to its packaging. In
general, stickers may not be used as a permanent way of affixing a trademark.
Amazon reserves the right to (1) remove or edit product pictures showing only a
temporarily affixed trademark, or (2) to ask you to upload pictures of your
product or packaging with a permanently affixed trademark. Generic products may
not be listed under ASINs of permanently trademarked products, even if the
products are similar or identical.
Unless you are the creator of an ASIN,
you may not:
change its brand or manufacturer
add a brand or manufacturer name
(i.e., where the ASIN was created without a brand or manufacturer as a
‘no-name’ or generic product), either in the respective data fields, the
ASIN title, the product description, or any product pictures.
If you wish to sell a product under a
different trademark (i.e., brand or manufacturer name) to that of an existing ASIN
(or where an existing ASIN has been created without a brand or manufacturer), do
not change the existing ASIN. Instead, create a new ASIN for that trademarked
If you believe that the brand or
manufacturer name on an existing ASIN is incorrect, please contact Seller Support
and provide all available evidence to support your position.
When creating a product detail page,
provide only information that pertains to the features of the product in general,
not the condition of your particular item. Product detail pages may be used by any
other seller to list the same product. When listing an item for sale, sellers must
follow the Amazon offer listing process. Within the offer listing process, sellers
are given an opportunity to note their item's condition, quantity, price, and
other details that are relevant to a specific listing.
For automobile parts, do not include
vehicle information in the titles. It may be confusing if buyers are shown a
product, with vehicle information in the title, that does not match the make and
model that they have selected.
Detail page information must be added in
the local language of the marketplace concerned.
Using bad data (HTML, special characters */? etc.) in titles, descriptions, bullet points and for any other attribute is prohibited.
Do not include HTML, DHTML, Java,
scripts or other types of executables in your detail pages.
If the category that you are listing in gives you the option of
supplying a List Price or Recommended Retail Price ("RRP"), you must represent the
price at which the product is generally sold in the KSA marketplace. You are also
responsible for ensuring that the List Prices/RRPs that you provide to us remain
current. If you do not have a List Price/RRP that meets these criteria, leave the
