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