Knowing where to sell online is a bit of a challenge these days. With the e-commerce booming in the past few years, the list of online marketplaces is steadily growing. There are so many options for e-sellers to place their products that reaching the customers and selling to them should be a walk in the park. Perhaps in theory, but the reality is much grimmer. Marketplaces which incur hefty fees but don’t actually deliver customers provide a disservice to budding online sellers. As important as it is to have a quality product, it’s equally important to pick a proper marketplace to sell it.
It’s one of the long-standing Amazon mysteries - how the Best Sellers are determined. Do sales represent the main drive behind Best Seller lists? Do best sellers get all the sales because of their ranking? Do buyers see them on the list and automatically go for their products? These are all the questions that get online sellers and merchants thinking. For that reason alone, we’ll address those very questions with this post and unravel the secret that is the Amazon Best Sellers list. Buckle up.
