To maintain the sanctity of any platform, marketplaces have their set of list which they clearly define to their sellers. Following similar lines, Jet.com follows the same at their platform which Jet.com deems:
Illegal, products which Jet believes are intended to produce an illegal product or undertake an illegal activity,
Unsafe, see many of the products listed below, or
Offensive, such as products that promote or glorify hatred, violence, racial, sexual or religious intolerance.
Besides aforementioned product types, Jet can prohibit the listings of products that are or may be legal but are either highly regulated or don’t meet Jet’s vision for their marketplace.
Below is the list of banned items at Jet but the list is not exhaustive, it can have more items.
Similarly, Jet can approve certain products to be listed on its marketplace even if they occupy the place in its banned product listings (it can be pre-approved from Jet.com)
- Anything illegal, whether to sell in the United States, or any products that are illegal on a state or municipal level
- Alcoholic beverages (at least for now – but Jet will look to approve the sale of wine and other alcoholic beverages over time)
- Animals – Meaning no live animals. Also, no items made from certain animals, such as animals endangered or threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act or such as ivory from ivory-producing animals such as whales or elephants.
- Automobiles that require registration, at least for now. (Also, Jet will not sell automotive electronics that are intended or designed to affect traffic, block signals, etc.)
