(Publisher: Take-Two Interactive Software) — It is nothing less than astonishing that a nearly four-year-old game, first released before the current generation of consoles came out, is still one of the top-selling titles in the industry — even if that game is “Grand Theft Auto.” It’s the gift that keeps on giving for Take-Two, with life-to-date sales of more than 80 million units. The game not only has a compelling single-player element, but developer Rockstar is regularly adding multiplayer components to keep players engaged.

Microsoft has recently started running anti-Chromebook ads. We thought the ads were unusual, and out of nowhere. Now, it seems like Microsoft realized Chromebooks were eating into consumer sales of Windows 8 laptops and was trying to weaken sales.
This isn’t about how The New York Times list is biased (though it is). This isn’t about how authors buy their way onto various national best-seller lists by buying their own books in bulk (though they do). No, this is about the far more insidious title of “Amazon Bestseller”—and how it’s complete and utter nonsense.
Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) posts its most popular items based on unit sales. It calls the list “Amazon Best Sellers.” The list draws from six primary categories, with the top 20 selling items in each. These include toys and games, electronics, camera and photo, video games, books, and clothing, shoes and jewelry. Amazon does not make it entirely clear whether these categories exhaust a list of the very best-selling products, but it presents them as if they were. Amazon also offers free shipping on over 100 million items.

(Publisher: Nintendo) — How popular is this long-awaited open-world “Zelda” game? So popular that it outsold the console it runs on. Worldwide, the game sold 2.76 million copies of the Nintendo Switch version of the game through March 31, according to Nintendo. The Switch, in that same time period, sold 2.74 million units. Whatever the reason, the game has certainly earned the success. It’s one of the most highly rated games of all time by critics. And it’s so loaded with surprises and solid gameplay that it’s easy to get lost in Hyrule, the game’s mythical world, for 100 hours or more.
Absolutely, it will overrate some and underrate others. However, it is comprehensive and transparent and, I believe, the best possible without making a lot of shaky assumptions on average feedback rates, sales prices etc. etc. So I prefer to keep it simple, and be upfront about the source of the data and its shortcomings.
Want to jump ahead? The global 1,000 list is just below, followed by the top marketplaces overall. Then there’s a breakdown of the top 500 sellers on Amazon’s European marketplaces. Finally, there are lists of the top 500 merchants for each of Amazon’s ten established marketplaces – US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Japan, India and China – and a list of the top 100 for Amazon Mexico, which launched in 2015.
I’m the Amazon sales manager at one of the companies listed above and can definitively say that the idea of 10-20% of transactions getting feedback has some limitations as an indicator for units sold.
There’s plenty of cross-border trading going on, but still many who are sticking to just one marketplace (or using separate accounts to sell on each). 46% of the 500 biggest sellers in Europe get all their feedback from only one marketplace (51% last year).
Amazon best books of 2017 so far – a set of rankings curated by Amazon editors – the mid-year version of the popular list of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year. The lists include titles featured as the Best Books of the Month, as well as worthwhile new releases.
See, on Monday, July 2, Andrew and I were taking refuge from the epic heat wave at his parents’ Chesapeake Bay house, drinking our makeshift version of “spa” water with chunks of watermelon and mint around the kitchen table. My debut novel Semi-Charmed Life was hitting shelves the next day and, while the rest of the family was idly chatting, I was obsessively Googling myself and refreshing Goodreads on my BlackBerry. (Yes. I still have a BlackBerry.)
When it comes to ranking highly on the Amazon Bestsellers lists, as the ranks are based hourly (or daily if the above information is correct), then a quick spike in sales due to a successful marketing campaign, followed by a lull in sales a couple of days later will only serve to see the product’s rankings quickly plummet. It’s far better to space out a product launch over a period of week, so Amazon can collect consistent historical data to make predictions on future sales. This will thereby make it easier for you to break into higher spots on the ranking table in future.

Some of these companies pay even their own employees to write feedback (they have the employee “buy” something, pay the employee plus give free incentives/product Many of the book dealers are the worst..
You’ll see what’s currently getting the most sales in the main categories of Amazon, but since your niche site probably isn’t as broad as “Toys and Games” or “Electronics,” you’ll need to dig a little deeper.

County Sheriffs restrain Randall Margraves, the father of three daughters who were abused by Larry Nassar, after he tried to attack the former team USA Gymnastics doctor who pleaded guilty in November 2017 to sexual assault charges, during victim statements of his sentencing in the Eaton County Circuit Court in Charlotte, Michigan.

Midyear sales figures for the video game industry show two things — the staying power of hot holiday sellers and which spring releases have found a loyal audience. While the positions shift (and many titles fall off the charts) once the holiday months arrive, they’re a good barometer of publisher health.
I’m a partner at a marketing company called Brass Check. Over the years, we’ve helped launch 30 legitimate New York Times best sellers (including several at the sought-after No. 1 spot). My company has helped sell over 5 million books and advised or managed book launches with every major publishing house, including Amazon.
So those merchants have really embraced selling on multiple marketplaces. You don’t have to go far down the list to find a seller whose largest marketplace is not their home country – KW-Commerce. They are actually based in Berlin but their biggest marketplace (by feedback) is Italy.
I tend to buy from the little guys now instead of the people on this list…just because they are listed as top sellers, top seller is really misleading. If they screw me over once, I will leave a neutral feedback with everything about the sale as neutral does not count against them (I just don’t want to ruin business, but do state what went wrong), then I never buy from them again…and I mention to family, community members, friends, colleagues to not buy from this or that seller (and then sometimes those people warn other not to buy). Also, I tend to buy from those who respond to inquiries with actual answers (even ‘I don’t know’ is better than a lie) . I buy from those who describe what they are selling (instead of may or may not have chips in case, may or may not have accessories…WHAT???) and I will pay more for service and honesty than for the cheapo prices given by the above sellers.

Can a tablet really replace your laptop or home PC? That’s still up for debate, but the best tablet trying to make that happen is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – and it does a fine job with the full blown version of Windows 10, an integrated kickstand and optional keyboard attachment. Great for for creative professionals, students and everyday folks alike – it’s only the premium price that pushes it down the list, but if you’re willing to pay for it, you’re getting a lot of power – a lot.
