If you’re selling your own product on Amazon then you’ll need to be aware of Amazon’s brand registry, this allows businesses to have greater influence and control over their brand’s products on Amazon’s marketplace. It can also help them to stop third parties from infringing on their products or selling them without their permission.

Amazon Brand Registry enables businesses to search for content in different Amazon stores from the same screen without ever having to navigate away. Find product listings on Amazon that match your product or logo using images. You can also search for a list of ASINs or product URLs in bulk to explore and report potentially infringing content fast

The automated protections use information about a company’s brand to proactively remove suspected infringing or inaccurate content. The more information a company provides, the better Brand Registry can help protect and improve the brand experience.

To enrol in Amazon Brand Registry, you will need:

  • An active registered trade mark for your brand that appears on your products or packaging.

  • The ability to verify yourself as the rights owner or the authorized agent for the trade mark.

  • An Amazon account – You can use an existing Amazon account or create a new one for free.
