Changing lithium battery postage policy.

Unfortunately Amazon will not post items with lithium batteries to places such as Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, basically any UK location where air travel is needed.

This is because there are restrictions on lithium batteries being sent by plane. This guide explains how to change your postage policy so that you cannot sell items with lithium batteries to these locations.

Step One -

Head over to your inventory page and search by "Item Description".

In the search bar type "lithium battery.

Then press enter.
