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.
“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
Perhaps most important, Chromecast isn’t restricted to a single platform. Although it’s produced by Google, Chromecast works for both iPhone/iPad and Android users, at least for the most part, which gives almost anyone with a smartphone, tablet or computer the opportunity to stream to their TV using devices they already know and use. In other words, there’s virtually no learning curve.
I’m pretty sure you’re missing a class of sellers. These are both long-time Amazon Sellers that I’ve had experience buying from and both are missing from your list but clearly have the feedback scores to make it.
Amazon is the widely acknowledged leader of online sales. Its lead is based to a large extent on the huge audience that goes to its site; the popularity of its Prime program, which offers both free shipping and a huge video on demand streaming video content library; its discounts; and its ability to launch and successfully promote its own consumers electronics products, the most recent of which are Fire Stick TV, Echo Dot and several devices powered by its Alexa “intelligent personal assistant.”
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?
Rankings there are determined by book sales reported to The Times by retailers across the the Times’ methodology states. But, there is “no exact number” of sales that will land you on the list, according to a representative for The Times.
Generally, price is the biggest criteria for purchasers of Chromebooks. They are often around $200 for some decent hardware. Even with low promotional pricing on Windows laptops, they were passed over on Amazon in favor of the top three Chromebooks. This can’t be what Microsoft wanted to see. Of course, this is just Amazon; I suspect inexpensive Windows laptops did okay at other retailers.

Dear Rob thanks for the excellent post. I am a new author in Kindle and have published a preschool book “MY FIRST PRETTY BOOK OF ANIMALS: a gift for little ones”. My free rank was #1 but my paid rank is #280,230. Please tell me why such a difference has happened. Secondly I want to know how did you determine the figures of sales and amazon rank.

(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.
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.
Great article ! One question : did anyone did have problem because of super URL ? In my view is possibile that AMZ use this as honeypot and it will at some point delete all user accounts that used this ?
You may remember that Amazon keeps track of which products people end up buying after searching for a given keyword. They then use that data to help them decide which products are most relevant to the original search term.
(Publisher: Nintendo) — How popular is this long-awaited open-world “Zelda” game? So popular that it outsold the console it runs on. Worldwide, the game sold 2.76 million copies of the Nintendo Switch version of the game through March 31, according to Nintendo. The Switch, in that same time period, sold 2.74 million units. Whatever the reason, the game has certainly earned the success. It’s one of the most highly rated games of all time by critics. And it’s so loaded with surprises and solid gameplay that it’s easy to get lost in Hyrule, the game’s mythical world, for 100 hours or more.

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.
