The screenshot in your main article shows that Amazon treats paid and free sales differently – they are actually different bestseller lists. They used to be published side by side, the top-selling free book in a category to the left of the top-selling paid book, but as your screenshot shows, they are now different pages.
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.
“To me this is the perfect entry level device. If you like the concept and are disciplined, then you can upgrade to another device. if you are trying to get a snapshot of what you are doing on a daily basis and how you can make some life and fitness improvements, this device is a perfect way in.” – Kristopher Baker, Amazon reviewer
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.
Because of the high bar, the term “bestselling author” was a term with some meaning. It was seen as something that was earned through a lot of hard work. But today, that designation has changed—for the worse. It’s like when you see a food described as “natural.” The FDA doesn’t actually regulate that term, so it’s basically meaningless.
Some items are also less expensive for customers with Prime subscriptions. When there is more than one price for an item, we used the base price. One reason for varying prices for the same item is that several vendors may sell them. Amazon updates all best-seller lists once an hour, although based on our observations, the lists do not change much hour-to-hour.
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.
I’ve been driven nearly to distraction that my BSR Category keeps getting placed incorrectly. The product category is correct, but instead of it showing BSR of Electronics, it shows BSR in Office Products.

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:
The Acer Aspire E E5-575G-53VG $549.99 at Amazon.com has shot to the top of the best-seller charts on Amazon.com because it’s one of the best laptop values we’ve ever seen. It’s got a workhorse 6th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM (upgradeable to 32GB), a 256GB SSD, a 15-inch 1080p screen, and even a dedicated Nvidia 940MX graphics processor for playing games and photo/video editing.
“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
Jeff Bezos is a snowy white beard and an arctic fulfilment depot away from being crowned a living Santa Claus, with his Amazon retail empire once again placing itself at the centre of holiday shopping in the US.
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 tablet mode, which blows other hybrids completely out of the water.

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.

With that said; I’ve would have to give ballpark of around 5-7% for seller feedback (even worse conversions for product reviews) averaging the highs and lows of niches, marketplaces, product quality, etc. etc… high end is about 20-23%.
It’s worth noting, too, that Prime Day 2017 technically started early this year — at 9 PM ET on Monday night. Plus, the sales event has expanded to 13 countries worldwide this year, up from 10 in 2016, which also translates to increased sales. While the U.K. and Germany were both in the Prime Day lineup last year, the Echo had yet to expand to those markets (it came only in September 2016): that too will have translated to a bump.
(Publisher: Electronic Arts) — “Andromeda” did not get the same critical love as “Resident Evil.” In fact, many fans were disappointed with the game. But previous entries in the series carried such goodwill that it still managed to rack up impressive sales in the first half of the year. Don’t look for a follow-up anytime soon, though. Electronic Arts has reportedly put subsequent sequels in the franchise on ice.
The winner is … Chromecast, the tiny Google device that streams video and music to a TV. Chromecast has topped several of Amazon’s bestseller lists—including the biggie, its list of all electronics—for weeks now, displacing a Kindle model as sales leader and leapfrogging ahead of both Apple TV and the Roku.
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.
“If a book has cracked the top 100 and and particularly the top 20 and stays there — the duration is a huge part of it, if it stays there for a few days — that is generally a very strong sign that it is going to be a New York Times Best Seller and that it is going to start showing up on other lists,” Eisenmann says. “To hit that top slot is huge. It means that a book is selling hugely during the period it is there.”
