Reader Blocked from Listing Books on Amazon

By: Reader

Sponsored Link

Dear Ina,
I sell in books and magazines on Amazon (as well as other categories). Today when I went to list books, about 90% of them did not have the Sell on Amazon button, nor when you clicked on the item was there the "if you have one like this sell on Amazon" link (or whatever the link reads).

I have reached out to Amazon to see if this is just a glitch or if they are gating books. I cannot imagine they would do that as the books I'm selling are 1950s kids books.

Thanks,
Dave

All books written before 1984 are to be burned. Easiest way to erase history.

Sure, B0040HMS40.  I opened up a case. They didn't even read it or so it seems.  They never answered my question and closed the case.  They gave me some verbiage that they are not opening up the category at this time (yet there was never any notice it was closed). A friend had the same thing and got around it by using Firefox and clearing cache.

Update- though it is still not showing the button, NOW if you click on the item itself (to look at the others available), it now says "Have One to Sell on Amazon?"  so the problem is at least partially fixed.

@papergoy

i don't even bother looking on the page, i just go to seller central and click the inventory dropdown at the top and then add a product, copy and paste the ASIN in and there you go. worked for the example that you gave.
