Amazon Manufacturer Representatives
The Buy Box team applies decades of e-commerce experience to successfully manage our clients’ marketplace accounts. Our account managers specialize in combining an understanding of your business fundamentals and an in-depth expertise in the Amazon Marketplace. They work with our marketplace technicians using a system of processes, proprietary software, and extensive channel experience to ensure your Amazon presence captures the opportunity on the marketplace not only producing greater revenue and profits but also reducing or eliminating your business’ workload. We pride ourselves on being one of the few agencies with an SMB (small to medium sized business) division and an Enterprise division. We don’t commingle clients among divisions as each has unique needs and requirements for proper account management. By having unique systems, software, and people devoted to each segment, we provide the value each client expects and deserves.
Why “Buy Box” Experts?
We are a niche marketing agency, specializing in marketplace management for brands, manufacturers, and resellers. This means we devote ourselves to helping you sell the most product on channels like Amazon, Ebay, Newegg, Jet, Sears, Alibaba, TradeMe, Mercado Libre, etc. Amazon is the 800lb gorilla in the room for marketplace distribution. Amazon typically accounts for 70% of an online retailer’s marketplace sales. Although we encourage sellers to diversify their marketplace strategy by expanding onto additional channels, we claim the most expertise and ability to benefit your business on the Amazon marketplace. And on Amazon, the lifeblood of your seller business depends on the “buy box.”
Let’s take an example, and say you’re selling this Lego set:
When someone searches for “lego treehouse” and then clicks through to this Product Detail page (and all other product detail pages), Amazon chooses one seller and puts that seller’s details in the Buy Box. What does that mean? Well, to have the buy box means that this seller’s information will appear within the product details listing next to “Sold by.”
In this analogy, each passenger car represents a seller’s product offer toward that product listing – each car has the potential to carry a person (each offer can make sales). However, only one car at any given time is in the correct position (the Buy Box) to let passengers on easily. Amazon has an operator (algorithm) which selects which car is in this position based on contributing factors like Fulfillment Method, Price, Seller Performance Metrics, etc. If there are ten perfectly equal sellers all competing for the same product Buy Box, they would get roughly 10% each. This means that each seller will have their offer shown in the Buy Box for roughly 10% percent of each day. Alternatively, a relatively high performing seller could have 70% of the Buy Box, an average seller could have 25%, and a lower performing seller, 5%. Therefore, instead of saying that a seller wins or loses the Buy Box, a more correct term would be to say that a particular seller has a lesser or greater share of the Buy Box.
We not only help you get the Buy Box, we also help you achieve a higher level of profitability on your products and we manage the process for you, so you can focus on what you do best to grow the rest of your business. We provide different service levels and plans depending on a seller’s needs. Please see our Services page for details.
