Approved to sell Covid PPE – completely confused how to create listing after previous denials
Hello ASC friends-
After multiple rejections and re-submitted applications I have finally received approval to sell face masks on Amazon (unbranded). As I do not have a trademark and can not join Brand Registry I have applied to sell these masks under an existing product. The email I’ve received from ASC Business Development support includes the following instructions.
“You have been approved to sell face masks on Amazon for the price and brand name mentioned in your previous email. You will create a listing for COVID PPE. In less than 24 hrs, the listing will go down and you will get an email from Amazon stating how you have violated policy and need to remove the listings. Please, do not follow this message. If you remove your listings, you will have to start all over again. Wait, 2-3 days. Your listing will come back alive. If it does not come back alive, please reach out to me.”
Does this mean I should re-open / re-apply for the previously denied product (under View Selling Applications)? The status still shows denied for that product, it has not changed. Or does this mean I should create a new listing altogether by searching for the brand name of the product I applied to sell? When searching this way I am yet again greeted with the “apply to sell” button as opposed to actually creating a listing. I don’t want to cause damage to my account. Thanks for any insight.
