Is A++ Content Mobile Friendly?
A+ premium content is designed to enhance any mobile shopping experience. All Premium A+ modules are mobile friendly. Moreover, A++ content has one significant advantage in the mobile app as it is displayed above the sponsored product carousel, which reduces the number of clicks to competitor’s ads. However, on desktop, the sponsored products carousel remains above the A+ Premium Content.
How much does A++ cost?
Amazon admits that Premium A+ is meant to be an exclusive program for Amazon’s most strategic vendors, and it is priced as such.
Premium A+ agreements need to be standalone agreements and clearly show that the negotiated amount for Premium A+ is above the minimum $250K threshold.
What’s the difference between standard A+ pages and Premium A+?
The basic differences are presented in the comparison chart:
|Number of Modules Available Per Page||5||7|
