Frequently Asked Questions on Holiday Season

To help you manage the holiday season effectively, we have put together the following FAQ for successful selling:

How do I win a featured offer?

To win a featured offer, ensure that both you and your listed items are eligible for it, see Become Buy Box eligible for more information. Being eligible to participate in the featured offer doesn't guarantee a win, but you can increase your chances of winning by following the tips on the Winning the Buy Box help page.

How do I show my listing information on the product detail page?

Detail pages are shared with other sellers who can offer the same product. Amazon chooses what information to include on the product detail page, based on manufacturer and seller contributions. To know more, refer to Product detail pages and offers.

How do I create sponsored products?

Detailed instructions are available on the Create a Sponsored Products campaign help page.

Where can I find a Buyer message template?

You probably have a handful of messages that you frequently send to buyers.
