    It seems Apple had prevented us from listing our used macbook pro 2017s on Amazon.

    Amazon tell me this applies to used laptops. I triple checked.

    What is apple up to?

    Isn't it illegal to prevent the sake of MY personal laptop?

    Thats not how I read the message? My interpretation is that amazon is asking you for a proof of ownership to make sure you are not listing a stolen computer.

    Amazon are a private company, they can do what they want with their platform so nothing 'illegal' there.

    Seems they are trying to protect against theft sales and stuff though. Did you fill out all the information correctly? Looks like they've asked for proof of invoice that you haven't provided.

    Also glad you've decided to sell it...

    The last sentence is what's significant. They want you to show them an invoice, as @leman noted.

    I have provided then with the sales invoice from Apple. I triple checked as that explanation would make sense.

    I triple checked. I can dig out the email trail ..

    In fact I have submitted it twice already... They insist I can't list a 2017 macbook pro. I'll dig out a screenshot later showing that message.

    The issue is with Amazon, have you tried contacting them or using their support forums? Not sure what you think we we can do other than guess really. Could just be an error, could be anything.

    Amazon isn't really geared towards used products so could just be something there. Try eBay.

    I sold my 2015 on Amazon and have been selling stuff for years in Amazon. Used goods.
    There is safety in Amazon as an intermediary, I don't have that with eBay or gumtree. I don't want to get robbed.

    Not necessarily. Exclusive brands such as Luxotica, Nintendo and more litigious companies, will not allow you to list on Amazon unless you have a wholesale account.

    You are better to check Swappa first, then eBay.
