Restricted products for sale or import
Below you can find a list of restricted products for sale (those that we do not allow to be offered nor sold on Mercado Libre in any capacity) and restricted products for import (those that we do not allow to be offered or sold to buyers through international drop shipping). All products in Mercado Libre must comply with the laws and regulations of each country, as well as with our policies. Sellers are solely responsible for the legality and legitimacy of the items they offer, must comply with all regulatory obligations, and have the necessary authorizations and/or permits that may be required by applicable regulations for the sale of the offered products.
Also, make sure your listings comply with custom regulations and import requirements of each country. Products retained in Customs won’t be returned to origin since an export process is needed
It is important to refrain from offering any of these products in Mercado Libre to ensure compliance with our policies and legal regulations, as well as to avoid penalties to your product listings and user account.
