Are You Selling Hygiene Or Topical Products In Europe?
April 5th 2021 a factory seal will be required on all hygienic and topical products. The seal comes with a slew of requirements to deter forgeries. Amazon wants returns to be pristine for resale so they are looking for an intact factory seal. The seal will prove that a product was never opened or used by a customer who returns it. Products not fitted with a qualifying seal by 5 April or returned products with a damaged or missing seal will be marked unsellable and will be disposed of at the seller’s discretion.https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/help/GQFZBRVVEEG3ZE9C
