Buy Box Alternative – The More Buying Choices Box

Coming in 2nd is worse than finishing last. You have given more effort than the rest, but the result was the same. As sellers, we’d all love to sit on the Buy Box throne, but it isn’t too bad to be second, third or even fourth on Amazon thanks to the More Buying Choices Box which provides top sellers with visibility, even outside of the Buy Box.

The More Buying Choices Box is located on the right-hand margin of the product detail page, just below the Buy Box. To qualify for the More Buying Choices Box, the seller must be a fulfilled merchant with superior level of customer satisfaction and low ODR (order defect rate) [1]. Only Buy Box eligible listings can qualify for the More Buying Choices Box. Up to three listings are displayed, largely based on price, availability and fulfillment type [2]. Exposure gained by appearing in the More Buying Choices Box can potentially raise your sales, as well as increase the chances of getting in the Buy Box rotation.
