Want to jump ahead? The global 1,000 list is just below, followed by the top marketplaces overall. Then there’s a breakdown of the top 500 sellers on Amazon’s European marketplaces. Finally, there are lists of the top 500 merchants for each of Amazon’s ten established marketplaces – US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, Japan, India and China – and a list of the top 100 for Amazon Mexico, which launched in 2015.
As well, the short time-frame in which the best sellers rank is calculated means that it’s a really small pool to be sampling. Say you’ve got a really small sales rank number (i.e. small in this case means as close to 1 as possible) — thinking it’s a hot seller isn’t necessarily true, as you, or the buyer, could simply be looking at something that’s been sold just a few seconds or minutes ago.
While the Amazon Best Sellers list is a good indicator of how well a product is selling overall, it doesn’t always indicate how well an item is selling among other similar items. Category and subcategory best seller lists were created to highlight an item’s rank in the categories or subcategories where it really stands out.
A recent report put out by RBC Capital estimates that there will be an installed-base of 128 million Alexa-powered devices (like the Echo speaker and Echo Dot) by 2020, and that they’ll become a $10 billion business that year. Those estimates are based on the assumption that Alexa-powered devices will increase spending by 5% to 15% for each Amazon customer.
You’ll see what’s currently getting the most sales in the main categories of Amazon, but since your niche site probably isn’t as broad as “Toys and Games” or “Electronics,” you’ll need to dig a little deeper.

Without sales numbers we have to take these claims with a grain of salt, but it’s a safe bet a lot of Chromebooks were sold over the holidays. HP should be glad to see one of its Chromebooks hit the top seller list, but none of its low-cost laptops with Windows made the top three.
With the 2017 holiday shopping season now firmly behind us, Amazon has a lot to smile about. Earlier today, the online retailing giant issued a press release noting that the 2017 holiday shopping season was its biggest yet. In addition to a record number of online orders, Amazon relays that it saw significant gains to its Prime membership, noting that it saw more than 4 million new Prime subscribers in one week alone.
Since the Insider Picks team aims to help our readers navigate the increasingly crowded e-commerce space to find the best value deals for them, Prime Day means we spend a lot of time sifting through an even higher concentration of deals to figure out which ones are most worth your time and money, given what we know about what our readers care about.
Currently, the holder of the highest-selling nonfiction release is Hillary Clinton’s “What Happened,” which sold 300,000 copies in its first week, according to publisher Simon & Schuster, as reported by Fortune.
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.
In a country teetering on the brink of civil war, two young people meet—sensual, fiercely independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, and are soon cloistered in a premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city.
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.
“I am at work, next to the window, and there is a literal jackhammer outside the window. I have these headphones in, listening to music, and I can’t hear it at all. If you want that in your life, these are the earbuds for you.” – megallo, Amazon reviewer
Members of the South Korea delegation (R) shake hands with members of the North Korean delegation (L) during their meeting at the border truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone dividing the two Koreas. North and South Korea began their first official talks in more than two years, focusing on the forthcoming Winter Olympics after months of tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.
The video game won the award for Best Family Game at the most recent Game Awards last December 2017. The sandbox video game exclusive for the Nintendo Switch, however, lost to “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” with the Game of the Year award.
Despite White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders’ efforts to downplay the book as “trashy tabloid fiction,” the scandal of Fire and Fury’s contents continues to intensify. On Thursday morning, Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey revealed that Trump’s lawyers have “demanded” an apology from Wolff as well as a halt on publication.
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!
(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.
Featuring a base of sweet almond oil and fruity notes of lychee, this Himalayan salt scrub is a favorite among Amazon users. If this particular formula isn’t quite up your alley, you can choose from other “flavors” like coconut milk, brown sugar, spirulina, arabica coffee, and more. It has over 3,200 reviews and a 4.5-star rating.

While the best sellers list is littered with things like $10-50 PlayStation Network cards and subscriptions to PlayStation Plus, there’s also a couple of accessories on the list, including things like a DualShock 4 controller and other controllers for the Xbox and Nintendo Switch. When it comes to games, however, the top 10 best sellers for 2017 is a fairly varied mix, so take a look at those below (via Nintendo Life):
Research the manufacturer to figure out how you can start reselling the product for yourself. Find out how much it will cost wholesale, and calculate what it will cost you to ship. Is there room between that number and $0.01 less than the current Buy Box-winning price for you to make a profit?
There are a couple other keyword strings to be aware of. You may have to do some experimenting one your own to figure out specific URL string combinations that delivers the page you want to see, but knowing these queries will give you a great starting point:
The best-selling baby products in the U.S. include the Nuby Ice Gel Teether Keys, Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy and the Nuby Bundle of 3 Toys, which was also the best-selling baby product worldwide.
Hi. May I ask a question? I would like to find the best product to sell on Amazon. Therefore, I would like to see all items in a specific department. I read on a couple of websites to type  after choosing the department, but this obviously doesn’t work. Do you know any alternative way to see all items in a specific department? That would be so helpful.
You’re still in competition with other sellers for the same products. Using the example of books, let’s say you’re selling a first-edition copy of Tom and Huck along with nine other Amazon sellers. If all 10 of you sell one copy each of Tom and Huck within a couple hours of each other, you probably won’t see a jump in your Amazon sales rank. To get that spike for yourself, you have to out-sell the other first-edition copies of Tom and Huck so that your sales are higher than the other nine.
The MacBook Pro is, simply put, a beautiful computer. It has incredible performance, a perfect build and design, yet still delivers 7 hours of battery life. The entry level version falls into this pricing category but, if you are flexible on price and are looking for more storage or performance, you have the option of upgrading a few of the internal components. If you haven’t already done so, I recommend checking this computer out on Amazon.
Can a tablet really replace your laptop or home PC? That’s still up for debate, but the best tablet trying to make that happen is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 – and it does a fine job with the full blown version of Windows 10, an integrated kickstand and optional keyboard attachment. Great for for creative professionals, students and everyday folks alike – it’s only the premium price that pushes it down the list, but if you’re willing to pay for it, you’re getting a lot of power – a lot.
On Thursday, a lawyer for Trump demanded the author and publisher stop releasing material, retract what had already been released, and apologize. Instead, publisher Henry Holt & Co. bumped up the book’s publication date up four days from Jan. 9 to Jan. 5, citing “unprecedented demand.”
(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.
Overall, Internet Retailer is estimating that Amazon will top $2 billion in Prime Day sales this year, or a 20 percent jump over Prime Day 2016. Our source is more bullish and said he wouldn’t be surprised if sales, powered by keen interest in Alexa-based hardware, jump 40 percent.
