Is slow sales better than no sales for ranking?

    One of my products is most likely to run out of inventory before the next shipment arrives. I’m thinking about raising the price to slow down sales.
    This is for PL so I always have the buy box.

      In my opinion, something is better than nothing so if you are getting slow sales it’s better than you are not getting any sales.

      yes , but it does not mean that will not effect the listing’s ranking but this can help to stay active on the amazon for long time and your listing

      Yes, low sales are always better than no sales, however, if your increasing price makes sure that it is not too high otherwise two things can happen, 1. you may have a suppression or 2. you’ll get no sales, just take into account what will be the sweet spot and set the price at that.

      Sales should be consistent to make your ranking better but if you’re afraid to be out of stock then you can increase your prices and also it would be better to get low sales instead of getting nothing.

      Yes, its better slow down the sales rather then losing the good ranking of the product, that is good to raise the prices of the product to slow down the sales process, also keep in mind that amazon will not allow you to increase too much high prices, it will give you the high pricing error.

      Yeah, In your mentioned scenario you can do that because your next shipment will take some time to arrive.

      Yes, It is better to get slow sales than the no sales because it maintains your ranking and to some extent the ranking is dropped whereas if your not getting the sales it will drop your ranking gradually.

      Yes slow sales would be better then getting no sales and due to this your ranking will be maintained and to some extent the ranking is dropped whereas if your not getting the sales it will drop your ranking gradually.

      Yes, it is better to have slow sales rather than no sales but if you are getting sales somehow you are ranked and indexed and the good thing is that you can improve the ranking and indexing and bring more sales.
