Package Relevance Protocol


The following protocol details the package relevance scoring system.

[Relevance] % = [Total Points]/[Maximum Possible Points]

Facet must be selected to count towards relevance.

Packages of equal relevance are randomly ordered for each new search in a way that avoids prioritizing any specific seller.

Relevance Color Codes:
Full Match (100%)
High Match (70% to <100%)
Partial Match (40% to <70%)
Low Match (>0% to <40%)
No Match (0%)
