How do you rank higher in search results?

Hello everyone! I’m new to Bonanza and I’m just starting to learn the platform. I’ve been in e-commerce for a while, and I realize that each platform is different. I’m a bit confused, so I was hoping someone might clear some things up for me, please. :) So…I see that there are several membership options and levels. That’s great! I also see that there is a free option with Bonanza taking a percentage when you make sales and that you can choose different percentages. Awesome. Now…what is the difference in search rankings within the Bonanza platform if I choose to be a member or if I choose to go with the free option? If I’m doing the free option do my products list in the search results for the site AND for the advertising, etc? OR…do I need to do a paid membership for my products to also come up in Bonanza’s listings? Any help would be greatly appreciated, and soooo many thanks for your time in reading and considering this. Have a great night!

A membership will get you into the first row Featured Seller slots of search results. (and this will rotate amoung the sellers so you will not always be there but maybe near the top..since there are only 4 slots). And no you do not need to be a paid member to come up in searches…after the Featured seller slots these will help with search rankings

Google compliance of listings

With reputation, this is not something Bonanza did back in the olden days, right?

Or yes?

I think it has more to do with google reputation to place higher in searches, not necessarily here…but who knows probably helps if you are a seller in good standing
