Note that not all sellers use unified accounts, and those who don’t aren’t easy to identify as cross-border merchants. Seller “dodax” is a good example of that, appearing in the top 10 for the UK, France and Italy – but using separate accounts on each.
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.
As you can tell from the list above, the best selling games were a bit dominated by Nintendo, but a couple of PlayStation hits did crack into the top 5, as Horizon Zero Dawn and the ever popular Call of Duty: WWII sold well enough to give itself a spot on the best sellers of 2017. For a look back at Horizon Zero Dawn, make sure to check out our review of the game below:

As you can see, this section of Amazon’s website is almost a department unto itself. Promotions are given their own unique links and listing pages. The part I’d like to draw your attention to is the Coupons link, highlighted in the blue box above. This page takes you to a list of Amazon’s most popular Vendor Powered Coupons (VPC) in a variety of categories. See the page for yourself below:
As the Amazon Bestsellers Rank is relative to other products in a category, an increase in sales alone isn’t enough to increase rankings. To increase the Bestsellers Rank, your product must sell more units than other products in your category. This means that if there’s a sudden influx in overall sales in Juicing Machines, and everyone in that category starts to sell more products, the sellers may not see jumps in their Bestsellers Rank, as they might have hoped.
“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
As you would expect from a computer in this price range, this HP Envy has some great components that will fly through most common computing tasks. The Intel i7 processor is remarkably fast, as is the 750 GB 7200 RPM hard drive. If you perform a lot of intensive applications on your computer, then this could be the right computer for you.
Get a high powered 2-in-1 Dell laptop with an LCD touchscreen display that is one of Amazon’s best selling laptops that is great for games, watching TV and more. The Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 15.6 Inch Touchscreen Laptop is for sale on Amazon for $509.80 with free shipping. That’s 49% off list price.
In terms of hardware, the Nintendo Switch was Amazon’s best-selling video game console — Switch consoles with gray Joy-Cons outsold those with neon Joy-Cons. The retailer’s best-selling accessory was the PlayStation 4 DualShock 4 controller.
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.
(Publisher: Capcom) – The horror franchise is always a favorite among players, but the most recent version had a special appeal for PlayStation 4 owners: The entire title could be played in virtual reality through the PlayStation VR headset. That nudged some buyers who normally might not have picked up a copy, but the big draw was the game received the franchise’s best review scores in 12 years.
Electric toothbrushes are one thing all of us have likely considered getting or have somewhere floating around on our wish list. Oral-B Pro rarely discounts products as heavily as they did on Prime Day, but it’s still at over $100 off right now.
Without sales numbers we have to take these claims with a grain of salt, but it’s a safe bet a lot of Chromebooks were sold over the holidays. HP should be glad to see one of its Chromebooks hit the top seller list, but none of its low-cost Stream laptops with Windows made the top three.
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…
Steve, that’s amazing progress you made. I’d love to chat with you move about your experience if you’re interested? I’m especially interested to know how sales are impacted as one climbs the best-seller lists on Amazon? Does it make a huge amount of difference to sales?
Amazon UK best sellers in top electronics & photo categories including : film, flashes, keyboards, lamps, laptops, monitors, projectors, scanners, smartwatches, speakers, tablets, tvs, video, wireless headphones and much more…
Nicolaos Solis from Greece kisses the wooden cross which was thrown into the waters by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, during the Epiphany ceremony to bless the waters at the Golden Horn in Istanbul.
We also publish a list of the world’s top eBay sellers. Amazon is a very different beast to eBay, and there are a few special caveats to be aware of. I’ll mention the most important ones along the way, and spell them all out in detail at the end.
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.

You don’t have to go far down the list to find merchants who have really embraced selling on multiple marketplaces across Europe. But three of the highest-placed cross-border merchants are not European companies – JEDirect are from the US, while Anker (with two European accounts) and Sunvalley are both Hong Kong-based companies.
We’re only halfway through 2017 right now so there’s plenty of time for another item to top Amazon’s electronics list. But if the past few years are any indication, the company may be on track for another year of having the best-selling item.
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.
Before Asus’s latest flipping Chromebook came around, pickings were slim when it came to affordable models with full-on Intel Core processors and 1080p displays, not to mention touchscreens, backlit keyboards and USB-C ports. It may use an Intel Pentium chip on the low-end, but the Asus Chromebook Flip is by no means low-end. Compared to what’s offered by the competition, the Asus Chromebook Flip’s value is unparalleled, and that’s without getting into its pristine mode, which blows other hybrids completely out of the water.
Arguably, the MacBook Air is no more, but the clones never stop coming. Among them is the Acer Aspire S 13. It’s not quite as thin and light as many prominently featured Ultrabooks, nor is it particularly premium. However, the Aspire S 13 packs quite a punch when it comes to performance. USB-C and a full HD display put it just over the edge in beating out the 13-inch Air, and for a much lower cost. Despite the powerful CPU, the Acer Aspire S 13 even manages a battery life of 7 hours and 49 minutes, according to our testing.
Across Amazon Books’ 13 bookstores, the top selling nonfiction book was Obama: An Intimate Portrait by Pete Souza; the top selling fiction book was Origin by Dan Brown; the top selling kids book was Diary of a Wimpy Kid #12, The Getaway by Jeff Kinney; and, the top selling poetry book was the sun and her flowers by Rumi Kaur.
Amazon’s best-selling list compiles a real-time selection of shoppers’ top products in each category, which are updated hourly. That means the products that are on this list won’t always be their best-sellers, but they were at one point!
I was wondering if there was any archive that you knew about wherein Amazon sales rank records are publicly stored. It would be quite the handy resource to look up how long a book stayed at certain ranks in order to make general inferences about sales, but my google-fu came up weak.
For example, SellBrite automatically keeps inventory for your Amazon store, eBay store and Etsy store all synced up so that you’re never showing duplicate products. You can also manage multiple stores on the same channel (if you have two Amazon accounts, for example). You can learn more about specific features on their website.
