How to Reinstate Amazon Listings After Product Takedown

If your product has been taken down, contact Amazon Seller Support immediately either by phone or filing a ticket. Although they may not be able to help you right away, it is important to have a case created relating to this issue.

There are many reasons why Amazon might takedown your listing. However, there aren’t many ways to get your listing back up. Amazon Seller Support does not have the capability to reinstate a listing. They will transfer your case or suggest that you email the product compliance team ([email protected]) however, they are slow to respond. We have had much more success by contacting the Brand Registry Team directly.

The Brand Registry Team is a dedicated support team that focuses on the assisting brand registered sellers. If you do not have a brand registered, you will not have access to this team. The Brand Registry Team has greater access to the backend of your listings and has control over the ability to reinstate listings that have been taken down.

To reach this team, follow these steps:

#1 – Log onto the Amazon Brand Registry Website and sign in.

You will need to sign in using the Admin account in order to access the Brand Registry page. This will be the account that was used to file the brand registry.
