What is compliance and why is it important?
From verifying your identity and your VAT requirements to product guidelines and sustainable obligations, learn the key insights (and how to remain compliant) when selling in European Amazon stores.
Compliance is one of the most effective ways to ensure that products in Amazon stores are safe, of a high quality and as environmentally friendly as possible. It also helps establish trust between our customers and our selling partners, and gives customers confidence when shopping with us.
If you don't comply with verification and tax regulations, you may be prohibited from selling products in certain territories. Products that do not have adequate compliance documentation or that do not comply with EPR regulations put your listings at risk of being removed. In addition, if non-compliant items are shipped internationally, they could be blocked at customs.
Below you'll find the five most common compliance categories you'll come across when selling in stores in the EU.
We built industry-leading tools using advanced technology and expert human reviews to make verifying your identity a straightforward process. Getting verified as a seller is a legal obligation, but it is also one of the ways that we build trust with our customers.
By selling on Amazon, your products get the exposure they deserve, helping you reach tens of millions of shoppers. Product compliance helps to keep your customers (and your business) safe when selling.
