Note that not all sellers use unified accounts, and those who don’t aren’t easy to identify as cross-border merchants. Seller “dodax” is a good example of that, appearing in the top 10 for the UK, France and Italy – but using separate accounts on each.
“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. ”
Obviously, the year is not quite over just yet. So, unless a sudden monster comeback is mounted by Breath of the Wild, Call of Duty or Valkyria Revolution, it’s looking pretty snug that Mario will be spending Christmas celebrating his incredible success, alongside Peach, Yoshi and John Leguizamo.
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 sellers on this list lack integrity, honesty, service and if there were employees they would be fired (but they are not employees).

Amazon keeps a running tab of the best-selling items on its website. It’s a pretty comprehensive list with everything from video games to books to clothing. For example, the best-selling toys right now are rocket copters that you can fling into the air and the best-selling book is Hillbilly Elegy. The list gets updated each hour, so the items change frequently. But one list that rarely changes is the top-selling devices in the electronics section.
This is my method for buying on Amazon (eBay in disguise), eBay, Abes: ask questions before sale about packing, when product will really be sent, do they provide tracking, have they described condition, what is their feedback like (go back and see how many people are dissatisfied each day for a month or so…tedious, but if you have people every day saying you screwed up, something’s wrong), do they respond to emails and do they answer the questions asked?
if you do a Google search they have a lot of complaints. Unfortunately Amazon is not interested in good sellers, just whoever makes the most money for them like Anybook for example, another crook that Amazon allows to stay, despite horrible complaints.
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.
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.
The Asus ZenBook UX310, the long awaited follow-up to the ZenBook UX305, sports a 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake processor and an all-aluminum frame, truly a candidate for the MacBook Air’s throne. That’s thanks in no small part to the ZenBook UX310 offering all the latest ports, including USB-C, and the option of a beautiful QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800) display, complete with 178 degrees of rotation and a serious case of the anti-glare.

Amazon’s press release is filled with all sorts of tidbits about top-selling items along with interesting factoids about logistics. As one quick example, Amazon notes that customers ordered more than 1,400 electronic products per second via mobile devices during the recent holiday shopping season. Another tidbit is that the peak day of customer fulfillment this past year was on December 19.
If you want a premium alternative, we’ve heard good things about MerchantWords (not an affiliate link), but keep in mind that these types of services don’t get their data from Amazon… At least not fully. They typically use a system that pulls data from major search engines, identifies matching queries in Amazon, and then use an algorithm to combine that data and give you estimated traffic numbers. Still may be worth checking out for some.
It probably didn’t help that it was constantly out of stock from Amazon directly. In the week leading up to xmas it was largely only available from third-party marketplace sellers at hugely inflated prices.
For example, this is why sometimes a new product can have a higher ranking than a product released 2 years ago. Even though the older product has more historical data or cumulative sales – Amazon is making a prediction that the new product is likely to surpass the older product.
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.
As you can see, this section of Amazon’s website is almost a department unto itself. Promotions are given their own unique links and listing pages. The part I’d like draw your attention to is the Coupons link, highlighted in the blue box above. This page takes you to a list of Amazon’s most popular Vendor Powered Coupons (VPC) in a variety of categories. See the page for yourself below:
These lists, updated hourly, contain bestselling items. Here you can discover the best Electrical & Electronics in Amazon Best Sellers, and find the top 100 most popular Amazon Electrical & Electronics.
(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.
Read thousands of books for the carrying weight of less than one, anywhere and anytime. The Paperwhite comes with an adjustable light, no screen glare, and a long-lasting battery. Plus, users have access to millions of books for some of the lowest prices anywhere.
With CES 2015 now nearby, expected to play host to a swathe of new Chromebooks, including a 15.6-inch Acer model, a Rockchip-based device from Lenovo priced at $170, and new ASUS models powered by Intel Broadwell CPUs, chances are that the successes gained this month are only going to continue into 2015.
We can’t stress enough to avoid making the mistake so many buyers have of placing too much importance on just the best sellers rank. It’s tempting to get caught up in the heady rush of seeing items fly off the shelves and your products have a small rank number, but there’s so much more involved than that.
“This is an amazing product for the price, and delivers much more than $50 value, especially if you have a Prime account. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending this enjoyable product.” – TM Massage, Amazon reviewer
