Default Getting around gated ASIN

Was wondering, if Amazon gates an ASIN - could we make a new product listing for it with a new ASIN? Would they suspend me for doing so or would that be ok? Has anyone tried it?

The category isn't gated, just certain ASINs. I could figure a way to drive traffic to the new listing, just wondering if that's not against their policies.

Yeah if you get around the ASIN approval process by creating listings you'll get a suspension / notification from the pq department, and that will be very hard to recover from.

Your best and safest bet is to just get the approval for the specific item you want to sell, and then create a new listing for it if you choose to do so.

We offer brand, asin and category approvals, check the link in my signature

Brand approvals are very tough and be careful Amazon is very strict on invoices used. Have heard they call and as well keep a file of legitimate versions of invoices.

I work with several vendors that receive calls every day

Its very common these days for amazon to call your vendors of authenticity claims as well as for approvals

Sometimes they don't call but more often than not these days they are picking up the phone

Not sure if they call or not but funny thing is sometimes they approve me with the legit invoice for some brand and other times they refuse the invoice from the same distributor for some reason...
