      GTIN is short for Global Trade Item Number. It is a unique product identifier printed underneath an item’s barcode.
      Brands need a Global Standards 1 (or GS1) registered barcode to sell in the marketplace. This is the only way to get a GTIN approved by Amazon.
      Products that do not have an approved GTIN will be removed from Amazon.
      If you’d like to apply for a GTIN exemption, make sure you meet the following requirements:

      Sell products for which the publisher, manufacturer, or brand does not provide a GTIN.
      List items that you make as manufacturer, publisher, or brand, which do not have barcodes.
      Sell product parts that don’t have an ID number.
      List more than one item at once in bundled packs.
      Sell generic products which don’t have a brand name.

      GTIN stand for global trade item number. to create a listing on amazon you need product identifier , which you have to buy but if you don’t have money to buy the product identifier e.g upc then you can apply for GTIN. In GTIN Exemption you just create the listing without providing the upc. you can apply online for GTIN Exemption you just need to select the category and brand name for that specific product. after this amazon will pprove the request then you will be able to create the listing without upc .
