Can You Sell Clorox Disinfecting Wipes on Amazon?
If you are considering selling health and sanitation products on Amazon, you've probably been wondering if it's possible to do so legally. According to reports, two Vancouver women, Manny Ranga and Violeta Perez, have made over $100,000 by reselling Lysol wipes. But did you know that Amazon bans sellers from selling health and sanitation products on its site? While Clorox wipes and some personal hygiene products can be sold on Amazon, Lysol wipes cannot.
Manny Ranga and Violeta Perez claim to have made over $100,000 reselling Lysol wipes on Amazon
A Vancouver couple says they've made over $100,000 reselling Lysol wipe products on Amazon. They do this by purchasing large quantities of Lysol cleaning products and reselling them on Amazon. They say they make more than $100,000 a year, driving to Costco and filling their pickup with various products. They then sell them on Amazon for at least quadruple what they paid for them. In a video posted to their YouTube channel, Manny and Violeta Perez claim that they hit up Costco every single day to stock up on cleaning wipes and resell them at a profit.
After the video was published, Amazon removed their listing for Lysol wipes, which had sold for as much as $89 a six-pack. Amazon then disabled the couple's account, saying there was no place for price gouging on its platform. The couple did not respond to As It Happens' request for comment, but Quan says they have no regrets about the way their stories were reported.
The couple explains to Quan how they bought their Lysol wipes in bulk and sold them on Amazon. They purchased these wipes in bulk and loaded up their truck every time a new shipment arrived. They said they had so many wipes in stock that they were offered double the price for them. Their sales have increased so much that they now have a full-time job. They have several thousand buyers from Amazon and have plans to expand their business into new areas.
Amazon restricts sellers of health and sanitation products
Amazon has begun imposing stricter regulations on sellers of health and sanitation products on its Marketplace. Disinfecting wipes and sprays containing isopropyl alcohol are now forbidden. This ban is an attempt to combat widespread price gouging of health products. This action comes amid the ongoing global coronavirus outbreak. Amazon also has banned sellers who overcharge for these items. The ban will likely discourage sellers from selling such products on its marketplace.
Affected sellers have noticed a drastic change in the product listings that appear on their accounts. Certain products, including face masks, hand sanitizers, disinfecting wipes, and isopropyl alcohol, have been banned from the marketplace. The company implemented stricter requirements for sellers of these products, and several sellers have already had their listings removed. This trend appears to have spread to other categories, such as real estate, Confederate flag memorabilia, and pet food.
Some of the health products that have been banned from Amazon are batteries containing mercury or alkaline-manganese button cells with a mercury content below 25 milligrams. Power bank products must also meet safety standards. Finally, laser products must meet FDA requirements. Amazon has placed strict restrictions on the content of health and sanitation products and has drawn up a Restricted Substance List. The list currently contains 54 chemicals.
Clorox wipes are also available on Amazon
You've probably noticed that Clorox disinfecting wipes are now back in stock. During the recent coronavirus outbreak, many household disinfecting products were unavailable, but recently, Amazon has restocked these popular products. But if you've been on the fence about picking up a pack, don't worry. Here are some of the top reasons why they're still a great buy.
Clorox disinfecting wipes are available in to-go pouches that are sealed to maintain freshness. According to the company, they kill 99.9 percent of bacteria and viruses, including E. coli, MRSA, salmonella, and strep. They're also listed on the Environmental Protection Agency's approved cleaners list. Plus, they're safe for use on wood, stainless steel, and granite.
