This post will explore some of the reasons why a sales slump may occur and what sellers can do if this situation arises.

However, if there are multiple sellers of the same product, then you’ll all be competing for the same Buy Box.

If you had the Buy Box and suddenly lost it or it’s now being shared between more sellers than before, then this could explain why your sales have dropped suddenly.
