This ASIN says I’m buybox eligible. Since you seem to know a lot about the buybox, can you tell me how I can tell before I buy a product from the wholesaler, and ship it in for FBA, that it will NEVER get the buybox so I don’t waste my time on those items?
Again, this isn’t a listing that Amazon is on and I have sold a lot of other products in the same category where there are many different sellers, including Amazon, with many different reviews/ratings. So if you have the answer to the mystical buybox algorithm, I would love to hear it so I can save my (and other sellers) money. I’m assuming many times my item is in a warehouse that’s closer to the buyer than the other sellers. But how am I supposed to know which warehouse my item will ultimately be shipped to prior to buying it and actually shipping it in?
You trying to shame me says more about your own insecurities versus my lack of knowledge on Amazon’s algorithms. Sellers are losing big profits due to the buybox not rotating and their use of repricers. I’m sure they would much rather share the buybox with someone 1% of the time versus having other sellers tank all of their profits. I could totally be wrong and I’m ok with that too. Bring on your shame!
