MBA Auto Rejection Words

MBA can be tricky to navigate if you’re a new or existing user to it, as there are quite a few things that are against Amazon’s Policy. One such rule are usages of words that are objectionable/offensive content that can trigger an auto rejection upon uploading. This has become more apparent since the content policy change in section 2.9. Essentially, these are everyday words that seem harmless to us, but are considered ‘adult’ or ‘sensitive’ content; inappropriate for youth tees and hence resulting in auto rejections.

    “Lifeguard” is a trigger word due to the Lifeguard brand. Instant rejection.
