Compliance Changes in Amazon

All merchants should be aware that there are upcoming changes within Amazon this month which affect Seller Central accounts selling Fashion.

From the 22nd October Amazon will start to hide the following fashion categories in the UK from search and browse

  1. Child listings (excluding Accessories, Jewellery and Watches) created on or after 22 October 2014 that have a missing colour value (colour_name, colour_map).
  2. Child listings (excluding Accessories, Jewellery, Watches and Luggage) created on or after 22 October 2014 that have a missing size value (size_name, size_map).
  3. Child listings (excluding Accessories, Jewellery and Watches) created on or after 22 October 2014 that have a missing EAN (external_product_id) for brands with products that have EANs.
  4. Child listings created on or after 22 October 2014 with a main image that does not have a pure white background (i.e. an RGB value of 255).

All hidden products will still be visible on the fix suppressed Listings view in Seller Central so you can fully optimise and input valid product information to be reapproved.

For our existing clients, Feed Manager already handles items 1 – 3 automatically.   Further information will be issued to clients prior to the 22nd October on any issues relating to item 4 through our blogs, tweets and email.

Feel free to call us in advance to discuss.
