Listing a new product

Hi guys,

every time I listed products on amazon using upc barcodes it worked. And now i’m trying to add another generic product using upc barcode from GS1. It failed and i asked CS, they told me that i had to apply for GTIN exemption for the product. Here are my questions:

  1. Why can’t i use barcode apply for the product?

  2. Is there any different if the product does not have barcode?

While UPC barcodes from GS1 are generally acceptable, certain categories or scenarios might require additional verification or compliance. In this case, applying for a GTIN exemption means explaining why your product doesn’t have a barcode or why using a barcode isn’t feasible.

If your product doesn’t have a barcode or the option to use one is limited, you’ll likely need to provide other identifiers.
