When you are selling branded products on Amazon, most of them are already listed in the catalogue, you just have to add the price. But, when you want to sell unbranded products on Amazon, you need to mention the product ID which is the bar-code of the product and is also known as GTIN – Global Trade Item Number (UPC, EAN, JAN or ISBN).
As unbranded products do not have GTIN, you need to get GTIN exemption. While listing, just enter “Generic” in the brand name field.
You need to obtain exemption for a particular brand in a specific product category. It is also required if you are not a brand owner and still want to sell your products.
