The list of Amazon best books of 2017 so far the titles published between January and June. It’s a great way to find new summer reads if you want to follow the recommendations of specialists.
The PS4-exclusive adventure Horizon: Zero Dawn was also one of Amazon’s most popular titles of 2017, coming in at No. 4. Call of Duty: WWII, which Activision touted was the No. 1 game in North America by revenue, also took two spots on Amazon’s top 10 list; the PS4 version was No. 5, with the Xbox One version following at No. 6. Some of Amazon’s other top-selling titles include Destiny 2, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.
I agree that’s a big concern, but it’s worth taking into account the volume that these sellers do. hippo books got 131,628 feedback in the past 12 months so probably had well in excess of a million orders. If they got 99.9% of the orders right, which would be fantastic, that would still be 1,000 orders they got wrong. I don’t think 30 complaints on the BBB is a lot for a business doing that volume of sales.
The Switch title, launching pretty late in the game on October 27, is currently surpassing Amazon sales of many of 2017’s biggest money-makers, including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2 and Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy.

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.
We’ve reviewed loads of laptops over the years: we’ve seen the good ones, the great ones and the ones to avoid. Sometimes, the best laptops pop up online at some truly deal-tastic prices. In this section, we list the very best laptops out there and the best deals on each one.
YouTube reflected on its banner year today, announcing that it served over 1 trillion playbacks in 2011. “That’s about 140 views for every person on the earth,” YouTube’s Rewind blog post says. YouTube saw record traffic and mobile growth this year. It gets 3 billion views per day, and video uploads have doubled since last year.
Call of Duty: WWII puts you squarely into the ranks of American soldiers as you fight for freedom across Europe. The game’s reality can be haunting, but it’s still one of the best first-person shooters out there.
The data is drawn from Amazon’s seller directories and best selling product lists – there’s one for each product category in each marketplace, including Amazon US, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, India, Japan, China and Mexico.
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 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.”
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.
First, let’s take some time to review known Buy Box metrics. They can basically be grouped into three categories. For reference, you can see the first page of sellers for the kettlebell listing above, shown to your right.
So, want to find out which games made it into the Top 10? Read on to check out Amazon’s roundup. But note that Amazon’s data comes solely from its own sales data. Games purchased digitally on consoles or at other retail outlets like GameStop, are not factored into the data. The year’s most popular games based on overall sales data, in other words, might be different.
One of the most common decisions that people have been needing to make when considering laptops of this caliber is whether to go with the MacBook Air or the MacBook Pro. There isn’t a “correct” answer to this question, as each one offers something that the other does not. But with a solid state drive, amazing screen, long battery life and snappy processor, the MacBook Air is going to make a lot of people very happy.
Hi Lola! Thanks for your comment. I’m getting this section (free vs paid) of the aricle changed, so this is made clearer- as mentioned in a previous comment, it seems the weightings are the same, but the lists are different…. Thanks for the heads up. I took a look at all of this in more detail and reaslised I needed to clarify this in the text., so hopefully those edits will be online soon!
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.
Great article! My book, “The Spider and the Wasp” (http://www.amazon.com/The-Spider-Wasp-Trauma-Survivor/dp/0991438310), will get down to about 2,600,000. I sell one and it jumps to about 450,000, and then drops back down to 2,600,000 over the course of a week. Last night it jumped to 225,000… so maybe I sold two in a day? Selling books is a tough thing to do. Wanting somebody to buy my book is like asking them to pay me for ten hours of their valuable time. I’m glad I didn’t go into it with any pre-conceived notions of success.
As such, we foresee that launching new products in “Electronics” section is going to be tough. As you might be aware, several established brands have a greater presence in the marketplace already and they won’t allow much room for the beginners. However, we can also notice that there are a large stream of new mobile cases and other smartphone accessories brands having entered the market now. The reason is that these are among the easiest categories of products to distinguish with choices of designs and colours. On the other hand, it’s also true that this reason is not enough to get recognised because there is simply too much of similar products and this differentiation factor is not sufficient.
As the strongest Windows competitor to the MacBook Air’s ultrabook dominance, Windows fans will find a lot to be happy about with this Asus model. It has a beautiful design, 5 hours of battery life, an Intel i5 processor and solid state hard drive. There is also an i7 processor model available, though it falls out of the $1000-$1200 price range.
The specs seem to line up quite well with other laptops in its price range, and it’s selling like gang-busters. That’s a pretty good indication that it’s a good laptop for the money given the high marks it has received in the user reviews.
The reason people aspire to call themselves “bestselling author” is because it dramatically increases your credibility and “personal brand.” It can establish you as a thought leader. You’re able to show that you not only wrote a book, but that the market has judged it to be better than other books out there. It’s a status symbol, one of that cashes in on the prestige of one of man’s oldest past-times. At last, I had acquired this coveted title for myself.
It’s a little hefty at just over five pounds and the battery isn’t user-replaceable, but that is a murderer’s row of specifications that contends with far more expensive laptops, like Dell’s Inspiron 15 Gaming Series that we just reviewed. It’s not a 2-in-1 and it doesn’t have a touchscreen, but if you just need a good old fashioned laptop with killer hardware, this is—without question—the best deal around. Don’t hesitate.
So those merchants have really embraced selling on multiple marketplaces. You don’t have to go far down the list to find a seller whose largest marketplace is not their home country – KW-Commerce. They are actually based in Berlin but their biggest marketplace (by feedback) is Italy.
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.
I suspected that I was not alone in my obsession. There are even sites like Sales Rank Express and Novel Rank that aim to cull tracking for authors, domestically and internationally. So, I reached out to two novelist buddies with new books out and asked about their relationship to the ranking system. Was I the only crazy one? “In one instance, I knew that 10 copies of [my book] were going to be purchased on Amazon,” explains Jennifer Miller, author of debut novel The Year of The Gadfly (out since May 8). “Out of curiosity, I checked the ranking before and after the sale. To my surprise, the ranking temporarily got worse. It’s a mystery!” She also reports fluctuations in one day from 100,000 to 7,000 and says that, according to her publisher, early sales information suggests that the book is selling best at independent bookstores. Wait, independent bookstores actually sell books? I thought they were a dying breed, almost as elusive as unicorns? Turns out that they still play an important role, thank goodness.
Amazon’s Unlimited Music deal cracking the top 10 isn’t a surprise to any of us since they discounted the service so heavily. Using it, you can stream songs, download them, make and share playlists, or listen to some of Amazon’s pre-made options. With a library of “tens of millions” of songs, there’s a good chance you’ll have access to the music you like, with the ability to discover a lot of new music.
