That is correct. Certain products/categories are closed at the moment for new sellers

You can check back in a month or a few months and see if that changes

Can try a different amazon platform as well - these categories vary per platform as well

Could it be the categories are closed to individuals but open for pro-sellers to apply?

Every now and then they close up categories as if they have a maximum quota met for a certain period of time. Pro sellers registered after a certain date can't sell certain products/categories. They do that pretty often around September for the holiday season. It comes and goes pretty randomly

Interesting, cheers for that.

I've yet to come across any categories that were closed to ungating on any of the pro accounts I've set up in the last few weeks. I'm planning on doing a few "electronics" ones in the next few days so will report back if I get any problems.
