The Featured Offer is the offer near the top of a product detail page, which customers can buy now or add to their shopping baskets.
A key feature of the Amazon website is that the same product can be sold by several sellers. If several sellers offer the same product in ‘new’ condition, they may be eligible to compete for the Buy Box for that product (as long as it can be delivered to the customer's selected address).
To give customers the best possible shopping experience, sellers must meet performance-based requirements to be eligible to compete for Featured Offer placement. For many sellers, Featured Offer placement can lead to increased sales.
When a seller wins the Buy Box on an offer’s product detail page, that seller’s specific information (respective offer price and seller name) will be displayed on the product detail page.

The remaining seller offers are available to customers who click the new & used (or new) link at the bottom of the More Buying Choices box to go to the offer listing page.
Since seller performance requirements can vary by category and are subject to change, we do not disclose specific targets needed to become an eligible seller; however, becoming an eligible seller requires meeting very high standards, and excelling in the qualifying criteria is the best way to work towards achieving this status. If you are an eligible seller, you can increase your chances of winning the Buy Box by following these guidelines:
Offer multiple delivery options on your products, including free delivery. You can manage your available delivery options on your Current Delivery Rates and Settings page in Seller Central.
The Customer Metrics page in your seller Account can help you track your performance. .
