The Buy Box
The Buy Box
When several partners offer the same product, one of the partners is featured the Buy Box. That's because this partner has the best offer in terms of price, delivery time and service. Most sales are made through the Buy Box. So it is essential to win this. A common tactic to always win the Buy Box is to set up your own brand with unique EANs. If you are the only provider of a product, you will always win the Buy Box.

Seller Rating
Your ability to get a high score on the 'service' aspect (named in the Buy Box section) depends entirely on your Seller Rating. Your Seller Rating is determined based on how well you meet the ASOS terms of service. Below this block you can find some of the conditions ASOS will look at.
