Dietary Supplements the New Dogecoin? / Salvia Divinorum / Keyword Sabotage Going Mainstream
1️⃣ Dietary Supplement Products have very strict new compliance requirements, and most PL sellers likely will not be able to comply. If you are PL and are able to gain approval, there will likely be a huge influx in sales at the end of May or whenever the others are removed. The requirements were necessary as this category was a free for all.
2️⃣ “While we are not removing your ability to list the Paw Patrol products, we advise you check your inventory to prevent future authenticity concerns. You could lose your ability to list Paw Patrol listing(s) if you are unable to supply the necessary invoices in the future. As a result, you will not be able to fulfill future orders.”

4️⃣ “Other Policy Violation” this past week was generally items with a pricing alert / error; Lots of reviews were zapped from items without notifications; For Toys where product compliance docs is requested and it’s impossible to meet, send what you can with an explanations and some sellers have seen success this way; ASINS / ROS being responded to very quickly in recent weeks.
5️⃣ “You are not approved to list this product. You will need to contact the Brand owner at XXXX@whirlpool.com to become an authorized seller of this product on Amazon.”
6️⃣ This is for low valid tracking rates where they suspend just MF and in the relevant categories “You may no longer sell seller-fulfilled items in the affected categories on Amazon.com. Your listings for those categories have been removed from our site.
7️⃣ csm-brand-review@ has been doing better this week and many brands were reapproved. If your in limbo with them try resending your invoices.
8️⃣ “This product has been identified as Salvia Divinorum, a DEA drug of concern. Amazon policy prohibits the listing or sale of Salvia Divinorum or its constituents on Amazon.”
9️⃣ Strange as this only happens to some accounts and the same ASINS can be listed on other accounts. ” We already have a vendor relationship with this Brand, through which we source products directly from the Brand for sale by Amazon to customers.”
🔟 Listings being changed and prohibited keywords used to cause a restricted policy violation seems to be widespread. Here are some useful tips.
