Ever wonder what the best selling products on Amazon and eBay are? Finding this out isn’t just a way to pass the time instead of working, it’s a way to find out what customers want the most of and RepricerExpress shows you what’s hot.

For many third-party sellers on Amazon, looking at the best selling products on Amazon as well as eBay can unlock ideas for items to add to their inventory.

Ecommerce retailers’ products are generally split into one of two groups: niche products or wanted products. Sometimes, the two overlap, but there’s generally a solid line separating the two. And if you can get into the latter category, that means there are all the more buyers to access.

If you want a more general list so you can pick and choose products with a different mindset, check out the top selling categories on Amazon. This can help give you a broad idea of where to start so you can do more detailed and specific research instead of chasing trends.

1. Toys & Games

Look for toys and games that have wide appeal, like memory games, card games, inflatable lounges, Lego blocks and sets, board games and jigsaw puzzles.

2. Electronic Accessories & Gadgets

Electronics is a hugely competitive category, but if you dive a little deeper into accessories and gadgets, you could find a better fit. Items like smart devices, portable speakers, cables and cords, power banks and chargers, screen protectors and memory cards are good options.

3. Video Games

It’s hard to go wrong with gift cards, but if you’re looking for something different, check out gaming consoles by PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo, as well as the controllers, adapters, and charging kits/docks for each one.

4. Camera & Photo Accessories

You may have noticed accessories can be a more attractive option than its parent category. When it comes to camera and photo accessories, things like home security cameras, GoPros, instant cameras and instant films, and photo papers tend to be smart bets.

5. Books

You could chase the books on the top selling list, or you could broaden your search to cookbooks, diet books, recipe books, comics, biographies and memoirs, or children’s books.

And for a list of some of the most popular categories on eBay, check these out.

1. Mobile Phones and Accessories

I tend to buy a new phone outright every year or so because I want to be in on the latest technology (and also because I have a habit of breaking them, but that’s another story). Luckily, there are plenty of buyers out there like me, making Mobile Phones & Accessories a good category to look into.

2. Video Games

It’s one of the most popular categories on eBay with plenty of selling options, whether you want to offer the latest AAA titles or get rid of retro consoles and titles.

3. Health and Beauty

If you do your research carefully and target things like vitamins and dietary supplements, skincare products, perfume, hair straighteners or hair dryers, you could just do very well for yourself.

4. Home and Garden

There seems to be no shortage of buyers looking to do their own work inside and out of their homes, making this category a potentially profitable one. Look for items like wall prints, lamps, cushions or plant pots.

5. Computers and Tablets

Just as with Mobile Phones and Accessories, Computers and Tablets is another hot category on eBay. In particular, products like computers, scanners, laptops and printers tend to be popular, especially around holidays or back to school.
