The Used Buy Box
What is the Used Buy Box?
According to the latest statistics, 83 % of all Amazon sales are received via Buy Box. Understanding Buy Box and filling the requirements set by Amazon to be eligible to get Buy Box has been and will continue to be a fundamental strategy for most sellers.
There are some criteria those sellers have to compete to win Buy Box and one of them is an item’s condition. A USED item is not eligible to get a Buy Box position over a new item. However, there is a Used Buy Box which is separate from the main Buy Box.
How do I get the Used Buy Box position?
As per requirements stated by Amazon, only sellers who meet the below-mentioned criteria are eligible to have Used Buy Box:
- Having Professional Selling Plan
- Having items be categorized under the media and book category
- Having a subscription to Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA)
- Meeting Order Defect Rate targets
- Having items Condition “Like New”, “Very Good” or “Good”
How can I increase my chance to get the Used Buy Box?
Make sure that your price is competitive. However, having the lowest price does not guarantee to win Used Buy Box.
