Learn About TikTok Shop Product Publication Requirements

Plans: All plans Platforms: All platforms


TikTok Shop requires you to include size and weight information for every product. This mandate is set by TikTok Shop itself, ensuring that customers have access to crucial details when making their purchases.

If your eCommerce store already contains this essential information, TikTok Shop will seamlessly retrieve it during the syncing process. However, if such details are missing, you must complete the product's size and weight fields before syncing it to TikTok Shop.

In situations where your product lacks precise size and weight specifics, providing an estimated value is recommended.

For certain categories of products, additional necessary information needs to be provided

Product Testing Reports

If your product belongs to this category, it's essential to provide a valid copy of the Test Report issued by a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)-accepted accredited laboratory.


Children's Product Certificate

For relevant products, submission of the Children's Product Certificate issued by the manufacturer, importer, or private labeler is necessary. The certificate must adhere to the guidelines outlined on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website, in the English language.


Tracking Information Labeling

All children's products designed or intended primarily for children aged 12 or younger must have a clear photo of the product tracking label uploaded.


GTIN (Global Trade Item Number)

This internationally recognized code uniquely identifies products. If your product has a GTIN, it should be prominently displayed alongside the barcode on the packaging or cover. In cases where you lack a product ID, you can obtain one by contacting the manufacturer. For self-manufactured products, the GS1 Standards website ( offers guidance. If your product doesn't have barcode information, input a valid value adhering to specified rules for successful publication.

To align with TikTok Shop's regulations, providing the above information is essential. If you lack this data, it's advisable to explore other categories, as each may have distinct prerequisites for fulfilling the necessary details.
