Having regularly checked the special promotions on Amazon over the holidays, some of the HP Stream laptops were offered as low as $179. You would think this very good deal would result in big sales numbers, but evidently not enough to outsell the top Chromebooks on Amazon.
Meet Amazon’s favorite electric toothbrush! This sleek option sits on a tiny charger base, taking up very little room on the countertop. With over 2,000 reviews and a 4.5-star rating, users love it for its long battery life and 30-second pulsation notifications that tell you when to switch from top to bottom.
Free Downloaded ebooks do NOT count equally as a paid sale. They may have a loooong time ago when the Kindle Slect program first started but for at least the last year or longer even a free giveaway downloaded only counts for about one tenth of a paid sale in overall/sub-category rankings.
There’s probably a lot of variance in the % of buyers who leave seller feedback. Amazon’s own statistic of 10%-20% does feel high though. I’m hoping to get data on it sometime and might be interesting to see if it varies by country, category etc.
The sellers above do not have to follow Amazon rules because they sell a lot for Amazon. If you buy from Amazon, find yourself the little seller who has great feedback and has described what they are selling. Question the seller before buying (I’d stay away from every seller listed above, they have no time for answering question and no time for customer service).
“The Anker charger is small and comes with a carrying case. This charger charges my phone quickly, about 2 hours and my phone is fully charged. The only negative with this charger is that it can only charge my phone one time, I really wish I could get two charges out of it.” – Aaron J. Garcia, Amazon reviewer

The listings shown to your right are a great example. Every seller on the first page has a 90% rating or above. However, you can see that a seller with a 90% rating ranks higher than a 100% rating. It seems that as long as you hit 90% positive feedback, anything extra won’t have a huge impact on the Buy Box.
So we supplemented data from the seller directories by looking at all sellers with an offer for any of the top 100 products in any of the top-level categories. (So they don’t have to be in the Buy Box for those products, they just need to have an offer at any price.)
What many of these sellers do not understand is that part of internet selling is that you are the eyes and hands of a buyer who isn’t there to look at the product themselves. The on this list lack integrity, honesty, service and if there were employees they would be fired (but they are not employees).
Adobe, which officially tracks the e-commerce sales from 80 of the 100 largest websites, reported that Black Friday sales reached $5.03 billion, up 16.9% from last year. The company’s research shows that every day since the start of November, e-commerce has posted online sales of over $1 billion, which has never happened before.
We actually worked with 2 sellers out of this list and improved their feedback from ~5% to about ~21% on all orders.. essentially doubling their monthly totals from previous months. (without going into super data). Anyways.. I think they probably climbed up this list since.. =)
Along similar lines, if your product is selling a steady one unit per day, but some of your competitors start to sell more than you, then your rank will fall (i.e. the number will get higher), even if your sales remain steady.

Every computer enthusiast knows the conversation—the one you get from friends or family: “Hey, I need to buy a new laptop. What do you think of this Acer so-and-so? Or should I get this Dell that costs $50 less? They seem pretty similar.”
I guess my learnings have been innital sales can give you the positioning that you need to attract future sales and its great to have a plan for this. Now I’ve promoted this organically I’m starting to settle into retargeting traffic and PPC adverts to get a consistent awareness out.

Amazon uses multiple selling accounts of its own, such as Warehouse Deals, Digital Services, Quidsi, The Book Depository, Cloudtail (a joint venture) and Amazon Media. Selling accounts that could be identified as belonging to Amazon have been excluded.
“This version of the Fire has a great screen display and looking at the technical specs Amazon made some major changes in the display/resolution, and the picture appears more crisp.” – Michael Gallagher, Amazon reviewer
Essentially many of the sellers on this list will ship late, (I guess Amazon requires sellers to send out within two business days after the order is placed)…these sellers sometimes take weeks Many do not provide tracking so if something gets lost in the mail, they don’t know where it is…so good luck getting a refund.
“While the algorithm deciding your Sales Rank doesn’t seem to place any weight on copies that were downloaded while your book was free, it appears that the algorithm feeding into the Popularity List does. ”
