Important for selling via Conforama
The Buy Box
The Buy Box
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 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.
