I NEED THIS FIXED AS WELL!
I am having the same problem.
I own my own brand, the products I sell on Shopify are mine that I create.
I have been approved and added to the Amazon Brand Registry which means I do not need UPC or anything for my items.
@Shopify Please help us.. this new Amazon channel is useless for many of your customers.
As another person with a GTIN exemption, I would like to see a solution to this as well. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out how to upload a flat file to Amazon so the listing process can at least be a little less time-consuming than doing it manually. There's still a product ID field in the template, though, so I'm not sure what to put there.
If this is important to you right now, I suggest skipping the Amazon channel and using a great app called Codisto https://apps.shopify.com/codisto-linq
If the thought of installing another app or using it as a temporary solution is a turn off you, you can also use them for eBay.
Codisto seems to allow for this. I ended up buying 100 UPCs off Ebay and started plugging them into the ASIN field, clicked the question mark that showed up and found this at the bottom!
"Brand Registry/GTIN exemption
If you have exemption, contact email@example.com with evidence of your exemption from Amazon and the requirement to supply a GTIN on those brands/categories in Codisto will be lifted. Read about why this is necessary here."
We already have the exemption and are waiting to hear back from the brand registry. We will be emailing Codisto tomorrow to have them turn that field off for us!!! Fingers crossed!
