Suppressed Listings

When Amazon determines that a Product Listing does not meet the Amazon standards, and is therefore not suitable for display, the product joins the ranks of Suppressed Listings. These listings are excluded from discovery via search and browse tools because the listing is considered distracting from the buyer’s positive shopping experience.

Reasons for Suppression

Amazon may suppress a product for any one of the following reasons:

  • Missing information
  • Incorrect values
  • Invalid values
  • No main image, except in the categories below, where an image is not required:
    • Automotive Parts and Accessories
    • Books
    • Industrial & Scientific
    • Music
    • Software
    • Video
    • Video DVD
    • Video Games
  • No value for the category (item-type) field, except in the categories below, where this value is not required:
    • Baby Products
    • Beauty
    • Books
    • Entertainment Collectibles
    • Fine Art
    • Gift Cards
    • Grocery & Gourmet Food
    • Health & Personal Care
    • Jewelry
    • Music
    • Shoes, Handbags & Sunglasses
    • Software
    • Sports Collectibles
    • Video
    • Video DVD
    • Video Games
    • Watches

Note: When listing flaws are corrected, the product will no longer be suppressed, with updates going into effect within 48 hours. All Suppressed Listings continue to be shown in a seller’s account, and the Suppressed Listing products may be found via a direct search – typing the exact ASIN, for example.
