I am an Amazon seller who enrolled a brand in Amazon Brand Registry prior to April 30, 2017. Do I need to re-enroll?
Yes. If you are a seller who enrolled a brand in the Brand Registry prior to April 30, 2017 and the brand meets the above-listed eligibility requirements, we encourage you to re-enroll the brand in the new Amazon Brand Registry. If your brand does not meet the current eligibility requirements there is no required action for you at this time. You will continue to be able to list without a Global Trade Item Number (e.g., UPC, ISBN, EAN, JAN) by using a key attribute such as part number or model number.
For access to these new features, we invite you to get started now. Please use your existing username and password to get started. You’ll be asked to complete a new brand application for each eligible brand that you would like to enroll in the new Brand Registry.
Do I have to enroll in Amazon Brand Registry if I do not have Global Trade Item Numbers (GTIN/UPC/EAN/ISBN) for my products?
No, you do not have to enroll in Amazon Brand Registry to obtain a GTIN exemption. However, successful enrollment of eligible brands in Amazon Brand Registry will enable you to list products for these brands without a GTIN.
If your brand is not currently eligible to enroll in Amazon Brand Registry, you may still qualify for a GTIN exemption. More information about eligibility requirements for GTIN exemption can be found here. Please note that this link requires a Seller Central login.
Is it possible for agents that represent a brand to get access to the Amazon Brand Registry?
Yes. Once a Brand Registry account is created, the user who registered the brand and/or the user that has been designated as the Administrator may submit a request to add additional users to the account, including agents. Each individual must create an Amazon Brand Registry user account and accept the Amazon Brand Registry Terms and Conditions before the Administrator can assign roles to additional user accounts. New user accounts can be created by clicking on the Get Started link below and entering the individual user’s existing vendor or seller credentials, or creating a new user account.
Within Brand Registry, Administrators must complete the following steps in order to assign roles to other users:
- Click on the “Contact us” link on the Brand Registry dashboard
- Select the “Update your brand profile” drop down
- Click on “Update role for user account”
- Complete the form provided, indicating:
- User account’s email address or phone number for mobile accounts
- Brand(s) relevant to this request
- Role for that user account
Can I report alleged intellectual property infringements if I do not have an Amazon Brand Registry user account?
