How To List Products on Amazon Without a GTIN?

How to Sell on Amazon without GTIN

In this article, we will see how you can apply for GTIN exemption if you do not have a brand registered. 

What is GTIN?

GTIN is a product barcode also known as Global Trade Item Number. It is mandatory to have GTIN for all your products to get listed on Amazon but we can obtain for exemption under certain conditions. 

To sell Qikink products on Amazon, you need to request for exemption. 

Requesting for GTIN Exemption?

Step 1: Add products to Amazon

Go to Inventory > Add a Product, click 'I’m adding a product not sold on Amazon and enter the product details. 
Since there is no Product ID (Bar code, UPC, EAN, JAN or ISBN) on your product or the packaging, you can apply for GTIN exemption and add your products without the Product ID.

Step 2: After you have GTIN exemption, wait for 30 mins before listing your products.

When you are ready to add listings, click on 'I’m adding a product not sold on Amazon' and enter the product details. Select the exact product type in which GTIN Exemption has been approved.
Please select the exact product type in which GTIN Exemption has been approved.

Step 3: Begin adding the brand name for which you have the exemption.

After you add a valid brand name, the Product ID field will not be highlighted in red, which means that it is optional.

Step 4: Fill in all product related information.

Fields highlighted in red are required. If needed, select the Advanced View option at the top right to add any other required details. After all the mandatory attributes are filled in, the Save and Finish button at the bottom will change from grey to teal.

You can check the status of your GTIN exemption request.
