It would seem as though Nintendo Labo could already be a success, at least in the United Kingdom. The creative product is currently topping the video game best-sellers charts on Amazon UK. The most popular Nintendo Labo product is the basic Variety Kit which retails for £59.99. It should be noted that the products went live on Amazon UK yesterday. The kits are due to be released in April.
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.
While Google hasn’t yet opened up product distribution outside the U.S., earlier this week, Amazon indicated that it would ship the device to select international destinations. Shoppers in Europe, Asia and Australia reported success in ordering the device. But now, Amazon’s Chromecast product listing reads: “Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S. and to APO/FPO addresses.”
Our top pick this year, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is a sweeping yet intimate story, one that packs heartbreak, humor, love and acceptance—and a memorable cast of characters—into a novel that will stick with readers for a very long time.
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.
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.
Amazon is the largest book retailer in the world. They carry over 33 MILLION titles and ship them pretty much anywhere in the world. At the same time Amazon also allows authors to publish titles directly onto the platform, without the approval of traditional publishers, editors, or, as my foot book proves, really any barriers at all. In 2014, a new book was added to Amazon every five minutes.
A gorgeous and long-lasting laptop featuring the most cutting-edge 8th-gen Intel processor, the Dell Inspiron 13 is $330 off its shelf price on eBay this week. It’s a touchscreen laptop and brand-spanking-new, too, in case that was a concern.View Deal
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?
Oh, and then there are the ones who claim to have U.S. warehouses and even state they send from such and such a state…many of these are located overseas and your purchase takes up to three months to get.
Their warehouse packers at the warehouses some sellers I guess send their product into so the seller does not have to ship the product themselves will throw product into a big box with no padding to take up the extra room (I had an MP3 player come in a box that was about 14″ x 20″x 12 inches high with no padding what so ever, it was so damaged by flouncing around in a huge box that it look like it had been thrown against a wall many times). Again, try sending it back for a refund.
As you can probably guess, some sellers have developed a blackhat form of ASIN piggybacking. Basically, it involves finding knockoffs of popular products and listing them with the same ASIN as their non-knockoff counterparts.

One of the top sellers you see in the list above is WayFair. As I was poking around Amazon, I noticed them showing up a ton in our searches. They have over 200,000 reviews and this seller clearly knows what they’re doing… Just about every item in their shop is winning its Buy Box. Getting Amazon reviews has to become systematic to generate sales.
(Publisher: Sony) — Sony’s PlayStation 4-exclusive open-world action/role-playing game had one of the best debuts of any new franchise in the company’s history. Sony says the game sold 3.4 million units worldwide, virtually guaranteeing that Aloy, the hunter/archer living in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by robots, will get a sequel.
Famed journalist Carl Bernstein, who called Trump a neo-fascist last March, said on CNN that “fascism is about a maximum leader, who is contemptuous of real democracy, of real Democratic institutions, contemptuous of the press and a free press, who extols torture and violence, who incites hatred. And there’s a great book, Sinclair Lewis’ ‘It Can’t Happen Here,’ published the ’30s, and we’ve never quite had a presidential candidate reach this level of prominence who embodies kind of what Sinclair Lewis was talking about in that book.”
Packed with essentials: Don’t be fooled. Built inside this thin design are the latest Intel processor options. The Inspiron 14 3000 Series has a slim 22 millimeters edge, so you can slip it in your laptop bag or travel bag without losing precious space
Amazon is one of the biggest online market places in the world.And thanks to reviews and user feedback, it’s also one of the most helpful since shoppers can see what other people have purchased and loved on the site.
Create a bigger discount or coupon than your competition. This is a similar tactic to winning the Buy Box… Since Amazon tries to give customers the best possible deal, you only need to offer a little bit better of a coupon than your competition to maximize your chances of getting showcased on the Coupons page.
My company is fairly well ranked on this list and our units sold in a 12 month time are more than 40 times the number of feedback comments received. That means we only get feedback on about 2.5% of transactions…and we actively request feedback from every customer.
Amazon does nothing to stop any of these practices. Also, quite a few on this list are drop shippers and spider sellers. Some do not have inventory, so if you need to return a product what happens is you are suppose to ship it back to whoever they buy it from, who many or may not reimbursed the seller you bought from…you end up not getting reimbursed. It’s a whole scam. Also, many of these stores are the same store (they hire others to open a store on Amazon, they have no product, but the same book is listed almost the same wording and same condition (or in the condition, they tell you they have a bunch of satisfied customers), just a few pennies difference…want to know if they really have the book…ask a question and they will say ‘we can’t answer you because it is in a warehouse in bumf*** wherever, lol)

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.
This works because the process Amazon uses to identify and spend misleading sellers is extremely cumbersome. The seller whose listing is being illegitimately piggybacked has to order one of the suspected counterfeit seller’s products to prove that it is indeed a different product.
Interested in the international fulfillment mastermind. We are currently generating sales of 15-20k / month but gearing up for expansion both at home and the European marketplaces. Our database provider has recently added ISBN search capability in Europe and we are in France now doing a little recon. Looking forward to hearing from you!

The popular non-tech items to make it to the top 10 are books. Australian author Scott Pape’s The Barefoot Investor comes in at number seven and Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food ranks as the eighth best-selling product in Australia.
(Publisher: Sony) — Baseball games don’t have quite the appeal among gamers as football and soccer titles. In fact, Sony is the only company making them these days. (Electronic Arts shuttered its “MVP Baseball” in 2005.) But the sales dominance of the PlayStation 4 has helped push “MLB 17” onto this year’s list. It will certainly drop off before the end of the year, but its strong performance in the first half of the year is still notable.
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.
(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.

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.
