What the term “gated” product/category means

So I’m hearing a lot about gated/ungated products on Amazon. Can anyone explain what the term “gated” means?

  • Gated means you can’t sell in that category, or sub-category without getting approval. The way to get approval is to provide Amazon with an invoice from your supplier that shows you made a purchase in that category. If you are buying from an authorized distributor, you should be able to get approved no problem.
