    hey guys!
    i stared with amazon few months now and i sell only some bestselling ebooks, but i didn't earned more that $1 per sell.
    I'm thinking to change the game and sell something with high payment because as i've seen i can get best traffic from google without spending a dime!
    that's why i'm looking now which products are good to sell ?

    selling expensive produıcts is harder but gives you a better earning. I just sold a tv last month but it got returned. My bad luck..

    I would suggest you start promoting cameras and watches if you are already getting huge traffic...but try and slip in less expensive items as well to increase your chances of selling something.

    Good luck

    Go on amazon and click on product category you like (home & garden, automotive,...). Then sort product by bestsellers (box on top right) and you can see which product sells best on amazon. Simple.

    you should sell mostly searched item at Amazon, you can find them like best sellers , mostly customers looking right now via the front page .

    Camera items and Books are the best selling things but you get only flat 4% rate for camera items.

    Keep checking the amazon referral details because some categories can have a cap on the amount you can earn (in the UK they even removed all commission for the Nintendo Wii at one time!). My recommendation is just find a good niche - the more expensive the better if you know your going to sell, although cheaper items will help bump up your referral percentage each month.

    If your in the UK, there is currently a £7 cap on products so that means the optimal product to sell is valued at around £80 to £120

    Yes - you can see when you log into your account, a link in the top right hand corner somewhere

    I stopped promoting products on Amazon UK since a little of my total traffic came from there. That said, it's sad that they've capped the referral you can earn. But it looks like they've also increased their minimum referral to 5% from 4% this year.

    Go on Ebay it's much better and you will make more than on Amazon.

    hhelen hit the nail on the head here. the best product in my opinion are digital cameras, I sell over 100 every month. The reason I like them so much is that nobody really buy just a digital camera, they buy a carrying case, a memory card (or two) maybe a tripod, some bling for the camera, a protective case, etc. etc. I also like to retype the owners manual in plain english and sell it through Amazon because you can sell it for $10.00 and make 50% commission which almost as much as you make on the camera.

    Books are good at christmas time, as are seasonal items. I stay away from sporting goods and TVs because it is too competative. Other good products are patio furnature and patio heaters as well as gardening stuff and tools.

    I have found the best products to sell on Amazon are the ones that are either the most expensive products, or the ones that have the highest volume. New video games are sometimes great to sell on Amazon because a lot of people are buying the latest games. To get the best mix of great products to sell, I would pick high volume products and high end products that don't have a lot of commission.

    I made a lot of money last Christmas with Amazon, and this is the best time of year to make money there.

    Do you know what is the best book you sell? I bet you know, why not get some other related product to sell as compliment?.

    For example, your best selling book is about taking photo, you could sell relating product such as cameras, flash, tripod.
    You can even get aggressive to sell Clickbank product or CPA which will give you more profit from existing traffic.

    That's my 2 cent!
