The buying block
The buying block
When several partners offer the same product, one of the partners is featured in the buying block. That's because this partner has the best offer in terms of price, delivery time, and service. Most sales are made through the buy block. So it is essential to get ahold of your specific buy block to get the most exposure to the market. Setting up your own brand or distinctive EANs is a frequent strategy to always win the buying block. If you are the exclusive supplier of a good, you will always have the upper hand in negotiations. In order to stand out in your buy block, it may be helpful to review your unique offer and consider how you may offer the most unique product.
