What is your shipping speed you list? If not “same day” I would expect to be knocked out of the buy box. That would be my first guess as a problem area.

Seth says
wrong guess … we ship almost always the same day … and unless we go the extra mile to prime is almost impossible to decrease our published shippping times and still stay in business.  we been all over that … but nice guess.  the problem, #MeThinks today, is wining the buy box … otherwise we are buried.  we made some progress today after wearing out two customer service reps who could hardly talk english.  i just don’t think they ran the rating algorithm yet … all of our products still show “not eligilbe”.

Si says
Okay. I just know that as a customer I often choose a product based on published shipping time, and even choose the “prime” offering whenever it is available … and would expect amazon to favor that when showing me the options for a product.

Shipping cost and time are usually my biggest concern when ordering online. And perhaps they would not be to the majority of your true customer base for your products … but are they for amazon reguardless?

the question arises:  can a person give themselves a kudo ?

Si says
Nope. That was disallowed by this rule: 

        // Booster hashtag gifts received
        "SELECT COUNT(h.coinerId) as allBy, h.coinerId as authorId, h.tag as type, " .
        "(SELECT author FROM posts WHERE authorId = h.coinerId LIMIT 1) AS author, " .
        "โ€™hGiftedโ€™ as itemType, " .
        "$wGift as weight, " .
        "h.type as node " .
        "FROM taggings h, posts p " .
        "WHERE UNIX_TIMESTAMP(h.time) >= {1} AND UNIX_TIMESTAMP(h.time) < {2} " .
        "AND p.id = h.id " .
        "AND p.status <> โ€™privateโ€™ " .
        "AND h.type IN (4) " .
        "AND h.tag IN ($iGift) " .
        "AND h.coinerId <> h.authorId " . // gifted by other
        "GROUP BY h.coinerId, h.tag " .
