Has anyone else had problems with the Exemption Request Form for GTIN?


I have been trying to get a code to list a book that I have that does not have an ISBN Number. It is a new book and doesn’t fall under the before 1973 rule. When responding to the message that Seller Central Support sends me, I cannot choose anything other than Branded Products. I have contacted Support 3 times and they keep referring me back to their form that doesn’t work. Any ideas?

If a product already exists on Amazon it’s against the rules to create another page. Unlike eBay all sellers of the same item list on the same page.
If not in the ‘catalog’ and a new page is needed it either
Needs an identifier
-The Brand needs to get into Brand Registry so it can use something other than UPC/EAN/ISBN/etc.
Apply for exemption ….Eligible cases for GTIN exemption

1. Brand, manufacturer or publisher does not provide a GTIN for the products. For example, private label products, or hand-made products
2. Non-branded products that do not have GTINs. For example, wholesale products
3. Parts do not have a GTIN. For example, some automotive parts do not have a GTIN
4. Bundles do not have a GTIN. For example, customized bundles may not have a GTIN. To create bundles correctly, see Product Bundling Policy before requesting for a GTIN Exemption
