Every eCommerce entrepreneur wants to know how to get reviews on Amazon. And rightfully so, reviews not only fuel rankings in Amazon’s search results, they are a difference-maker when it comes to whether or not a customer buys your product.

The Amazon Buy Box is special real estate given to an offer on an ASIN’s product page. The Buy Box solves the “too many options” problem by separating the featured offer from the other offers so that the buyer sees what Amazon deems the best deal (not always the cheapest). The Buy Box is an effective solution. It stands out and the offer featured there accounts for over 90% of purchases on Amazon. Needless to say, for Amazon sellers, having their offer featured in the Buy Box is enormously important.
