The Best Selling Products on Amazon 2018
What exactly is everyone buying on Amazon?
It’s 2018 and the way we purchase things has drastically changed from a few years ago. Everyone uses Amazon in some form or fashion. Whether it’s the occasional purchase or what seems to be a compulsive addiction – we all buy stuff on Amazon. And with Amazon Prime Day starting tomorrow, the shopping sprees of the summer are yet to begin.
We here at The Sitch personally use Amazon all the time (no, we don’t have a problem). It seems that there are packages coming in every day, with things ranging from affordable printing paper to a huge inflatable duck for the pool.
Amazon is currently the largest online retailer in the world, the growth of which has helped make its founder Jeff Bezos the richest man on the planet. But with everyone buying things off Amazon non-stop - the question is, what exactly are people buying?
We here at The Sitch were curious, so we did some investigating. Amazon actually publishes their top selling products on the website and breaks them down by category, ranging from toys & games to clothing, shoes, and jewelry. While these popular products are updated hourly, the top selling items are likely to hold their spot for some time. Below are the top selling products on Amazon this week.
Toys & Games
Given that we’re all over twenty years old here at The Sitch (and don’t have any kids), we probably wouldn’t know too much of what is selling on Amazon in the toys and games category. While the interesting looking “LOL” doll in a ball came as a surprise, the UNO game we know and love definitely makes sense.
It’s really no surprise that three of Amazon’s own products are at the top-selling electronics on the site. Giving both Google and Apple a run for their money, the Fire TV Stick and Amazon Alexa products (the Echo and Dot) really have been the products to buy for the home - and they make a good holiday gift for friends and family, too.
Cameras & Photo
With the recent revival of the Polaroid type of instant photography, many companies like Kodak and Polaroid that seemed to be inevitably doomed, have managed to make quite the turnaround all thanks to the hordes of tween girls around the world who love taking old school printed pictures with friends.
Based on our article on Fortnite, it’s probably a no-brainer that we don’t really know anything about video games or what’s the hottest selling. But it does make sense that an affordable $10 gift card for Xbox Live is what currently takes the number one spot. Need to get a gift for your nephew’s birthday? Quickly grab one of these gift cards from Amazon and they’re that much closer to getting the latest upgrade.
Cost: $17.39 (Hardcover)
Cost: $13.79 (Hardcover)
To be honest, we were hoping that 50 Shades of Grey was still the reigning champion in the book department but it looks like people are now more interested in healthy foods and self-motivation. Given that none of these books didn’t make Bill Gate’s “5 books to read this summer” list it’s safe to say that we haven’t given them a solid read - but that isn’t to say that they’re not all amazing.
Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry
Cost: $9.99 - $13.88
Cost: $16.99 - $22.99
Believe it or not, Amazon also offers a huge selection of stylish clothes, jewelry and everyday garment needs for both men and women. You might have seen their latest #FreshItUp ad campaign with Yami Gautam and Saqib Saleem that launched a few months ago.
So that wraps it up for our list of the top selling products on Amazon.
