Of course, it’s easier to be a bestseller in a small category than across the whole of Amazon, so an author will need fewer sales than the numbers you quote if they are only competing in a small category.
For example, we sell in multiple product categories and find that we receive proportionally more feedback in some categories. The dollar amount of the transaction also has a correlation to likelihood of feedback. Additionally, some items lend themselves to buying multiples while others do not. If a customer buys 5 units in one transaction, that will still lead to a maximum of one feedback.
Free Downloaded ebooks do NOT count equally as a paid sale. They may have a loooong time ago when the Kindle Slect program first started but for at least the last year or longer even a free giveaway downloaded only counts for about one tenth of a paid sale in overall/sub-category rankings.
Under federal law, it is illegal to use public office for private gain, as well as “for the endorsement of any product, service, or enterprise” and for the “private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity”.
What it lacks in processor specs, the Dell Latitude 3580 more than makes up for in ports. Unlike most laptops today, this one has HDMI out and an SD card reader in addition to Ethernet for only $419.View Deal
These lists, updated hourly, contain bestselling items. Here you can discover the best 2 in 1 Laptop Computers in Amazon Best Sellers, and find the top 100 most popular Amazon 2 in 1 Laptop Computers.
The Dot is the smallest of the Amazon Echo devices, but it has all the capabilities of the bigger products. Plus, it’s the only one that can connect to external speakers through a wire or Bluetooth, and it’s small enough to stack pretty much anywhere or keep out of sight.
The Dell XPS 13 is, bar none, the best laptop you can buy today. It features a revolutionary design that’s astonishingly thin and light. Fitting a 13.3-inch screen into such a small frame means Dell has created a nearly borderless Infinity display. It’s a powerful and long lasting machine even by today’s Ultrabook standards. The XPS 13 comes outfitted with Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors plus lighting, quick storage and memory, all while coming in at a very affordable starting price. For these reasons, it easily takes the top slot as the best Ultrabook and the best overall laptop.
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…
I haven’t personally checked out or reviewed this Windows laptop, but after reading many of the mostly positive user reviews on Amazon, it appears to be a great option for those who need an affordable, yet capable budget laptop.
For just over half a grand, you can’t say no to an 8th-generation Intel quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM and Nvidia GeForce MX150 discrete graphics. In terms of specs, this is a price that has yet to be bested, even if it’s not technically a discount.View Deal
New York Times Bestsellers – Amazon runs special sections that feature the books that made it to weekly bestsellers lists by The New York Times. The NYT lists can be found in both print and Kindle sections. We link to the second directory, as it showcases the combined charts (print+ebook) for fiction and nonfiction.

“The scale is very accurate. I stepped on and off multiple times, and always got the same number. Then I put on a light jacket, stepped on again, and it was up .6 pounds. Perfect!” – Elizabeth, Amazon reviewer
The editors read hundreds of books per year trying to pick the most interesting titles. They select the best books of each month, which are naturally taken into consideration when compiling two main lists: in June and December.
The best-selling outdoor items in the U.S. were Intex Comfort Plush Elevated Dura-Beam Airbed with Built-in Electric Pump, the Stanley Classic Vacuum Bottle and the BV Bicycle Light Set Super Bright 5 LED Headlight.

(Publisher: Ubisoft) — Ubisoft lands a one-two punch at the top of the midyear sales list with this hack-and-slash fighting game that pitted Vikings against samurais against knights. While the multiplayer elements faced some criticism, fans appreciated that the game rewarded patience, rather than letting people simply mash buttons on their controller randomly and still win fights.
Amazon has unified its European marketplaces in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy. That means a single seller account can be used to sell on all of those marketplaces. Feedback is tied to a single ID for sellers using unified accounts, so it’s possible to report on the proportion of feedback they have gained from each European marketplace. You can see that breakdown in the table below.
If you want a premium alternative, we’ve heard good things about MerchantWords (not an affiliate link), but keep in mind that these types of services don’t get their data from Amazon… At least not fully. They typically use a system that pulls data from major search engines, identifies matching queries in Amazon, and then use an algorithm to combine that data and give you estimated traffic numbers. Still may be worth checking out for some.
The next time you’re in serious need of a laptop on the cheap, consider this: our round-up of the best laptop deals are so affordable that you might just buy one on impulse. For the price you’ll pay, we wouldn’t expect the most killer performance or a 4K screen, but we wouldn’t bank on a laptop that cuts corners either, as every entry on our list makes compromises only in the areas you shouldn’t notice.
So we supplemented data from the seller directories by looking at all sellers with an offer for any of the top 100 products in any of the top-level categories. (So they don’t have to be in the Buy Box for those products, they just need to have an offer at any price.)
The best-selling automotive products in the U.S. included the Dark Seasonal Snow & Ice Car Scraper, the NOCO Genius Boost Plus GB40 1000 Amp 12V UltraSafe Lithium Jump Starter and the STANLEY J5C09 Jump Starter.
It probably didn’t help that it was constantly out of stock from Amazon directly. In the week leading up to xmas it was largely only available from third-party marketplace sellers at hugely inflated prices.
Amazon’s best-selling electronic devices and accessories offer clues as to what is really hot and what is a good deal. Here we take a look at the 18 recent best sellers from Amazon. You’re sure to see some surprises. You’ll also see ways to get more speed at home, get more entertainment on vacation, and get too see how Alexa can change your life…
Since customer reviews obviously affect sales, I guess that my question has to do with Sales Rank, so here it is: if a review is posted on my sales page in one Amazon store (e.g. UK or, say, Italy) will it automatically appear on all other Amazon sales pages for book, including Amazon.com?
Here are the top 500 sellers on the Amazon.co.uk marketplace. The feedback shown is only that received from sales on the UK marketplace. The feedback data will vary from that in the global list above, for merchants selling to other European marketplaces using the same account.
The sellers above do not have to follow Amazon rules because they sell a lot for Amazon. If you buy from Amazon, find yourself the little seller who has great feedback and has described what they are selling. Question the seller before buying (I’d stay away from every seller listed above, they have no time for answering question and no time for customer service).
Amazon also stated that 60 percent of holiday sales were made from a mobile device. Purchases made using gadgets were especially brisk on Cyber Monday, as Amazon sold 18 toys per second, via mobile devices. This indicates shoppers are moving away from the computer and grabbing the phone or tablet to shop online instead.
