The Buy Box
The Buy Box
When several partners offer the same product, one of the partners is featured in 'het koopblok' or 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. Waveinn should strive to win the Buy Box by ensuring competitive pricing, fast delivery, and excellent customer service. By integrating these factors into their business strategy, Waveinn can increase their chances of being featured in the Buy Box and attract more sales.
