    Yesterday I came across a problem when trying to sell dvds on Amazon. I selected the dvd I wanted to sell, clicked on "sell yours" and then I got the message I cannot sell this, because it is a restricted item.

    On the other side, I see sellers (but not many) selling these exact dvds, new and used. So why can they list this and I cannot?
    Amazon does not help much, in their support I only found as a reply that many people sold fakes of these dvds so they decided to restrict it or companies like WB or HBO restricted sales of them. But as I do not intend to sell fakes, how can I overcome this?

    Start by emailing their affiliate team, they will be the ones to talk to.

    Affiliate team? I am not promoting their items as an affiliate, I would like to sell these dvds on my own as a seller on Amazon.

    So nobody came across this problem? Nobody is selling dvds on Amazon? Try e.g. listing Rizzoli and Isles 3, or Doctor Who 7.
