Answer me ASAP, please!

See example:

The better the published deals are, the more customers buy them, the greater the profits for suppliers and the greater popularity of the site.

Nothing is wrong with the verb "buy" in your sentence. In its synonym section, Grammarly suggests synonyms for many frequently used (and sometimes overused) words. It's trying to be helpful. It is your choice whether to use a synonym or stay with your original choice. In this case, "buy" remains your best choice.

 

That said, consider dropping "them". Them in your sentence refers to the deal and not to the product. It would be more concise and more accurate to just say "the more customers buy".

 

Also, a comma is required before "and".

 

The better the published deals are, the more customers buy, the greater the profits for suppliers, and the greater popularity of the site.
