Can Your Company Survive Brand Gate 2.0?

One of the biggest risks we face as Amazon sellers is the way Amazon controls which products we can and can’t sell. We are on the cusp of being impacted by their efforts to drive quality and protect the consumer through their major change, dubbed Brand Gate 2.0. This initiative merges Brand Gating with Brand Registry functions to significantly restrict which sellers can sell which products. We suspect the changes rolling out this month will also impact the way the IP Rights Holder complaints will be handled.

Do you need to learn more about Brand Gating and Brand Registry? Are you wondering if these potential changes will apply to you? Listen to this recent podcast on the subject between Scott Margolius and Robyn Johnson. It provides some background.

NOTE: We realize the rest of this post might be longer than what you have time to consume. If so, don’t spend time reading any further. Listen to the podcast above at 1.5x speed and if you find that information interesting or relevant then it might make sense to circle back and finish reading the rest below.
