Customers will now see sales trend for your eligible listings

by News_Amazon

Product listings for certain categories including health and personal care, home, and sports, will display a "sales trend" that highlights how many customers recently purchased that product.

"Sales trend" is a new listing feature that provides a broad estimate of the number of customers who recently bought a particular product. For example, the listing might show "10K+ bought in past month." The feature is designed to help customers find your most recent popular products.

Similar to customer reviews, badges, and sales rank, sales trend is automatically added to eligible listings.

To find out more, go to Sales trend FAQ.

Amazon will focus on anything and everything as long as it has nothing to do with improving profitability for sellers.

Why does Amazon feel the need to influence buyers. I think people know what they are looking for. Stop promoting herd mentality. It’s not a helpful feature.

"When a metric becomes a measure, it ceases to be a good metric." Amazon is really good at building feedback loops, really bad at seeing them.

And when this turns out to be a big driver of sales, if this doesn't encourage shadow-buys and other black hat practices, I will eat my hat. Then Amazon will say "look at all the bad behavior we've stopped ... 95% out of hundreds of millions of attempts (meaning millions of failures) to take advantage of this predictably flawed decision, aren't we good at our jobs?"

You know what would be a good metric to display? Long time sellers with an extensive track record of not doing anything wrong, even if their sales have dropped in the face of black hat tactics as the result of Amazon onboarding every seller with a pulse. As opposed to an overseas seller that's on their 20th store name, with a pending registration for the ;LADSKFJH;KLJDSAFG brand.

Why in the world would you do this Amazon? What this will do will give even more sales to competitors who are selling more than a lessing seller's product? Another bad move!
