An item is marked as Inactive (Blocked) in the following situations:
- Item was blocked by Amazon because of the pricing issues, improper product title, image, description, etc.
- Item violates one or multiple Amazon Program Policies, including Selling Policy and Intellectual Property Policies.
- Item belongs to the list of restricted or recalled products on Amazon.
To identify why Amazon has blocked your item, go to Inventory > Manage Inventory page of your Seller Central. Next to the item’s Inactive (Blocked) status, you will see either a red or a yellow icon.
A red icon indicates that Amazon will not allow you to relist the item. In case of a yellow icon, the item may be relisted only after you fix the listing details, for example, set a proper price.
Usually, Amazon provides a reason for blocking the item so that sellers know what exactly to fix.
To update listing information in your Seller Central, click Edit next to the Inactive (Blocked) item. Make the necessary changes, and confirm them by clicking Save and Finish. Then try relisting the item.
If the item is unblocked and relisted on Amazon, its status will be updated to Active. You will see the item status changes in your M2E Pro within 24 hours.
