How amazing would it be if you could see (almost) instantly if you were restricted from selling an item you were thinking of purchasing? You can do this by turning on your Amazon Restrictions setting!
Note: The intention of the Amazon Restrictions alert is to show you Seller-related restrictions for products, such as category, brand, or condition restrictions.
