Google might want to enjoy Chromecast’s sales leadership while it lasts. In the future, would-be customers could get put off if the wait for more compatible apps and streaming sources drags on. Before long, Chromecast may also have a new challenger: Amazon’s rumored streaming gadget. Possibly dubbed the Firetube, the device will reportedly launch in time for the holiday season.
As to which products moved the needle, Amazon’s Echo Dot and the Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote were the best selling products across every category, an impressive feat to say the least. Predictably, Amazon didn’t release any specific sales figures, only noting that Echo Dot sales ranged in the millions. It’s also worth noting that Fire TV Stick sales increased by more than 100% year over year.
Amazon has a massive retail operation that often sees big sales over the holiday season. A press release from the company confirms this year was no exception. Buried in all the information Amazon shared, was the nugget that the top three computers sold over the holiday were Chromebooks.
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.
(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.

Two weeks ago, if someone had asked me for my number, I would have barely resisted the urge to wink lasciviously at my own reflection and quip something super-lame to my husband Andrew about how lucky he was to have such a hot wife.
Amazon won’t announce the best-selling product of 2017 until early next year, but for now investors can take note that the past two years Amazon’s products outsold everything else, and this year its electronics are easily topping the list again. That’s a strong signal of Amazon’s ability to continually keep customers tied to its ecosystem.

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.
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.

I’ve just recently published on Amazon, and as I am from Ireland, most of my sales are coming from amazon.co.uk- yet for my sales rank it only seems to be counting the ones that come from amazon.com? Just wondering if you could shed some light on this for me?
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.

If you’re an Amazon seller AND an eBay seller (or a NewEgg seller, or one of the other six supported platforms), we recommend SellBrite. It sacrifices the accounting, financial and analytics tools of InventoryLab in favor of multi-channel inventory and listing management tools.

That’s right — if a free book is ‘sold’, it’s weighted just the same as if a buyer forked over cash for the same title. The only thing, then, that matters is how many of whatever title have been snapped up, and that number in turns becomes part of the algorithm used to calculate the sales rank.
Across Amazon Books’ 13 bookstores, one out of seven customers who purchased a book also donated a children’s book to local charities supporting children in need. The top selling book given to local charities was the classic, Are You My Mother by P.D. Eastman; it was also the top selling book across all 13 stores.
As documentary filmmakers who have published both DVDs and books, my in-laws have experienced Amazon ranking firsthand. They informed me that my book had likely been assigned a number though it was only currently available for pre-order, but the numbers changed all the time, so I might as well wait to look. I could arguably head upstairs to my laptop and get a preliminary sense of the book’s standing immediately, but what was the point?
Super Mario Odyssey was the best-selling video game of 2017 on Amazon, according to the online retailer. Nintendo also had the second and third best-selling video games on Amazon, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Switch rounding out the top three.

Sadly Amazon is not available in Australia, not for buyers or sellers,only Amazon books….even though Australia is one of the highest online purchasing population there is, but I guess Ebay isn’t complaining.
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.
As mentioned, all that counts is the number of sales relative to other products within the same category. Amazon splits ‘paid’ and ‘free’ books into separate categories, so these act as sub-sub categories, in turn having their own bestsellers rank, which seems to be ranked using the same (or very similar) algorithm to paid bestseller ranks.

That leaves 54% doing some level of trade across Amazon’s European marketplaces using a unified account. But are they doing it successfully? Well, 71% of the cross-border traders gained 10% or more of their feedback from countries outside their biggest marketplace (up from 59% last year). And 33% got more than half of their feedback away from their main market, almost double the figure of 18% last year. So while there aren’t many more sellers selling internationally across Europe, those who are have become even more active over the last year.
To show you what’s going on behind the scenes when you use Amazon, let’s start by looking at the URL for a search term you might want to rank a product for. When I search for “stove top espresso makers” from Amazon’s home page, here’s the URL that we get, shown in the image below:
