The Amazon Buy Box (and How to Win It) Explained

The Amazon Buy Box (and How to Win It) Explained

Each product (identifiable by a unique ASIN) on Amazon has its own detail page where sellers list offers for that product. If there are many sellers offering a single product, it can be overwhelming for buyers who must choose between a panoply of options before making a purchase. Buyers are looking to balance price with shipping speed with seller reliability and other factors. Because of this, Amazon is motivated to make the checkout process easier for the buyer by reducing the number of decisions they must make. That’s where the Buy Box, known on Amazon sometimes as the Featured Offer, comes into play.

The Amazon Buy Box is special real estate given to an offer on an ASIN’s product page. The Buy Box solves the “too many options” problem by separating the featured offer from the other offers so that the buyer sees what Amazon deems the best deal (not always the cheapest). The Buy Box is an effective solution. It stands out and the offer featured there accounts for over 90% of purchases on Amazon. Needless to say, for Amazon sellers, having their offer featured in the Buy Box is enormously important.
