As of this afternoon, Amazon says that its “Techies” category on the site was one of the most shopped, along with “Home Chefs” and “For the Home.” In the Techies section, Amazon is heavily promoting its own hardware — including Echo devices, Fire tablets, Kindle e-readers — as well as bundles like the Echo Dot/Philips Hue Starter Kit, for example, among others.

Curious as to what electronics are the most popular? Starting in the world of e-readers, Amazon’s Kindle has remained a leader. One of the most popular models, the Kindle Fire, is full-color tablet that cost less than $200.
Hi. May I ask a question? I would like to find the best product to sell on Amazon. Therefore, I would like to see all items in a specific department. I read on a couple of websites to type  after choosing the department, but this obviously doesn’t work. Do you know any alternative way to see all items in a specific department? That would be so helpful.
Lenovo has crafted a brilliant, forward-thinking device that could very well create a subcategory in computing all of its own. The modest specs hold it back from taking on the big boys in terms of raw power, but the innovative digital touchpad keyboard and drawing surface look like trendsetters to us. The Android version is currently about $100 cheaper than the Windows one (click “see all prices” above to see all options).
Hi Hutch, thanks for your comment. Do you have a link to a specific article which shows this? I agree that free vs paid has a massive bearing on movers/shakers, top 100 etc, but for the sales rank, the vast majority of data I’ve seen and experienced supports that the weighting between free and paid for this specific list is pretty equal- would love to see some quality evidence for the contraty though, and if I’m wrong, will be happy to change the article…
This laptop has everything that most people could ever want. It has a full-HD, 1080p screen, an incredible Intel i7 processor, 8 GB of RAM and a 750 GB hard drive. This computer was built for gaming, as evidenced by the powerful graphics processor and, basically, across the board, top-of-the-line components. And not only are its’ components top-notch, it also won a prestigious reddot 2012 design award. It also has nearly 20 customer reviews (at the time of this writing), and a nearly perfect average review score. This is even more impressive due to the fact that this laptop is meant to appeal to computer gamers, who are notoriously among the most difficult to please.

“I liked this screen protector a lot anyway, then I lost my phone, outside, on my 80 acre horse ranch, for 10 days, in approximately 6 inches of water, mud and snow… and it lived!” – Sarah B., Amazon reviewer
On the flip side, Prime Day is one of the best sources we have to determine how on the mark we are by what we feature. Thanks to years of deal-hunting and paying attention to readers, we’ve gotten pretty good at anticipating interests, trends, and needs, but — as Prime Day reminds us with things like a SanDisk memory card and car mount cracking the top 10 best-selling items — we cannot always be 100% right in our assumptions.
You’re still in competition with other sellers for the same products. Using the example of books, let’s say you’re selling a first-edition copy of Tom and Huck along with nine other Amazon sellers. If all 10 of you sell one copy each of Tom and Huck within a couple hours of each other, you probably won’t see a jump in your Amazon sales rank. To get that spike for yourself, you have to out-sell the other first-edition copies of Tom and Huck so that your sales are higher than the other nine.

Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.ca marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the Canadian marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other North American marketplaces using the same account.
I’m aware that its quite easy to pick a category and become a best seller in it. I see Internet Marketers do it all the time for positioning so I wanted to get the UK topspot as a way of feeling justified in promoting myself as a Best Seller.
Since Amazon updates its rankings so frequently, “really what it measures is velocity of sales … over a short period of time rather than an absolute number of sales over a longer period,” says Caroline Eisenmann, an associate agent at Frances Goldin. “What it reflects is how a book is selling relative to the other books on Amazon during any one time.”
I guess my learnings have been innital sales can give you the positioning that you need to attract future sales and its great to have a plan for this. Now I’ve promoted this organically I’m starting to settle into retargeting traffic and PPC adverts to get a consistent awareness out.
Important – For #3 to work you really need to offer a standout deal. The penny-pinching you can get away with on Amazon probably won’t be enough to get you featured on the most popular Daily Deals sites.
I have a book which has sold zero copies, but its rank has changed several times. It has also gone up, so this has not been caused by people adding books. One of the categories it’s listed in doesn’t have that many books, but it still has over 100 of them. Despite that, my book was listed at #15 at one point even though no-one has bought it…
Finding a budget laptop under $250 in 2017 shouldn’t be a problem anymore. Or is it so? I decided to take a look on the best selling and latest laptop releases on Amazon in 2017 and learn – could I really find a…
The book’s robust standing at no. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list is particularly impressive and noteworthy since it primarily consists of commercial paperbacks and popular hardcover fiction. No other work of political analysis or reporting ranks in the top 50, as of 10:00 a.m. EST on Thursday.
The best-selling game on Amazon for 2017 was Super Mario Odyssey, the first major Mario game for Switch and GameSpot’s No. 3 pick for Game of the Year. It was followed by Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while Splatoon 2, Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, and the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild rounded out the top 10.
