This new API lets us provide real-time repricing (basically we can make changes to your prices as your competitors make changes, rather than waiting an hour to see if any changes need to be made), 100% accurate knowledge of Amazon’s offer, featured merchant status of your competitors and we’ll always know the lowest FBA offer, even when the “bucket” system would make it unavailable.
“If you are in the market for a little tablet and have prime, you have to decide between this Fire 6 or the 7 inch HDX for twice the cost. This 6 inch adds the rear camera and most of the performance while being smaller, lighter at half the price.” – William Hardin, Amazon reviewer

Last week, I put up a fake book on Amazon. I took a photo of my foot, uploaded to Amazon, and in a matter of hours, had achieved “No. 1 Best Seller” status, complete with the orange banner and everything.

This is the second year in a row for strong holiday sales of Chromebooks, but it’s a bigger feat this year. Microsoft and its Windows hardware partners pushed out cheap laptops (around $200) to compete with the Chromebook this year. Based on Amazon’s information, three Chromebooks outpaced them.
Although sellers on Amazon.co.uk have taken three of the top five slots this year, the list overall is still dominated by Amazon.com, with 584 sellers (551 last year). The UK is next with 205 sellers (234 last year). The US’s gain of 33 sellers in the top 1,000 is very close to the UK’s loss of 29 sellers.
OK we have now updated all the data – global, Europe and all the countries. I think we have picked up a lot of the missing sellers and additional marketplaces for sellers with unified European accounts.
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.
Nintendo dominated! Of course, it wouldn’t be a list without Horizon Zero Dawn, which seems to be on everyone’s minds lately – including fellow developers. With a January Nintendo Direct slated for later on this month, we can’t help but to wonder what else the Big N has in store. The ranking above proves that the renewed interest is there, and we can’t wait to see what they do with this reacquainted momentum.
The only agreed upon fact was that Amazon’s algorithm was a big fat secret. And, according to their information page, the ratings are actually updated hourly across the board, though the exact moment of update might depend on time zone. To get some perspective, I searched The Hunger Games in paperback and found that it was No. 7. Since my father-in-law kept making jokes about me passing Charles Dickens, I looked up Great Expectations in paperback too: No. 982. Just narrowly beaten out by the dildos.
As the biggest day in Insider Picks history, a whole lot of you participated — which means we have an even greater sample pool, on a super concentrated day of deals, to glean some wisdom from. Data like this helps us get better at talking about the subjects that you care about and finding the deals that you’ll be most glad to know about. But even though we use feedback like this to get better and better, we love it when you drop us a line at insiderpicks@businessinsider and tell us things you’d like to hear more about or are perhaps having trouble finding on your own.

Lower down on the book seller’s list are the dystopian classics “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood, “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley, “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, and “Animal Farm,” also by Orwell. Trump’s “The Art of the Deal” is also on the list, at #12 on Saturday afternoon.
It’s no surprise that the best-selling electronics are Amazon’s own devices, considering how much visibility they get on the site. The Echo Dot is a voice-controlled device that uses Alexa (your new BFF) to do everything from adding new products to your Amazon shopping cart to playing music and notifying you about the weather. This particular model has over 61,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating!
Walker says she’s checked it out a couple times, but will probably stop if a downward trend begins. As a veteran, she knows a thing or two about self-preservation. She and several other writers have instructed me, quite rightly, to stay sane by focusing on the next book instead of tracking this one. I plan to take their advice. Eventually.
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.
Woot via Amazon offers the refurbished HP 15-ba018ds AMD A6 2GHz 15.6″ Touchscreen Laptop in Black for $349.99 with free shipping.

It features an AMD A6-7310U 2GHz quad-core processor, 15.6″ 1366×768 touchscreen LCD, 4GB RAM, 2TB hard drive, DVD burner, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
This holiday season, Whole Foods Market sold over 500,000 pounds of sweet treats at the cookie bars featured in stores across the U.S. – that’s enough to feed Santa more than 6 million cookies throughout his trip around the world on Christmas Eve.
Another problem with some of the brands is that they don’t have much reach outside Amazon. These brands depending on Amazon search optimisation and Amazon ads are going to add essence to this problem as they would way to out-rank them. As soon as the marketplace banned incentivized reviews, it became tougher for the brands to bootstrap without putting considerable efforts into it. But, this would promise us to create better, as well as stronger brands in the near future.
You’ll find Top 20 Print Bestsellers of 2017 So Far in the table below. As you see, all of the titles are Prime-eligible. It means that if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber living in the US, you can get any of these books shipped for free.
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.
Any industry person can tell you these lists have their problems. There’s a barely concealed editorial bias. Bookscan, the database that tabulates book sales, inexplicably doesn’t include Amazon’s ebook sales. There’s even the possibility of manipulation, as outlined in a 2013 Wall Street Journal article called “The Mystery of the Book Sales Spike.” Still, they remain relatively hard to crack. In most cases, your book not only has to be good enough for a legitimate publisher to publish it, but you have to outsell all the other books out there, past and present, even if you’re paying for it out of your pocket. We’ve had clients sell close to 10,000 copies in a single week and miss landing on these charts.

Another benefit on these top selling lists is that you can identify the top selling brands. This is helpful for SEO research as well as creating pages/posts via auto-blog where you enter keywords into the software/app/plug-in.

In a press release pushed out on December 26, to highlight its successes during the festive period, Amazon says it saw a big increase in the number of Prime trials being taken, a big bump in the number of people shopping from its mobile apps and, to sweeten the acerbic reception that greeted its ill-fated Fire Phone, big sales for its own-brand TV streaming devices.
Adobe, which officially tracks the e-commerce sales from 80 of the 100 largest websites, reported that Black Friday sales reached $5.03 billion, up 16.9% from last year. The company’s research shows that every day since the start of November, e-commerce has posted online sales of over $1 billion, which has never happened before.
“I love my new Paperwhite Kindle. I’ve been using an aging keyboard Kindle 2, waiting for a version with a built-in light like this. Amazon really got it right with the light on this one.” – Chad Bush, Amazon reviewer
Perhaps most important, Chromecast isn’t restricted to a single platform. Although it’s produced by Google, Chromecast works for both iPhone/iPad and Android users, at least for the most part, which gives almost anyone with a smartphone, tablet or computer the opportunity to stream to their TV using devices they already know and use. In other words, there’s virtually no learning curve.
I think the variation in feedback rates is fascinating. Some sellers like Pete below do report up to 20% while others just get feedback on 2-3% of sales like you. It seems to vary by country, but I’m guessing product category, price and other factors also play a part.
This week, excerpts and early copies of “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” began to circulate among newsrooms, revealing bombshell claims by author Michael Wolff about President Donald Trump’s first year in office.
Feedback isn’t a direct measure of success, of course, but it is an indicator of sales volume. Amazon says that most sellers receive feedback on 10% – 20% of their sales, so the number of units sold is likely to be 5x to 10x more than the feedback shown below. This does vary very widely, however, with feedback percentages between 2.5% and 18% claimed by sellers in the comments below.
