Five Best-Selling Product Categories on eBay
eBay, one of America’s most loved eCommerce platforms, gets a lot of traffic. Buyers are willing to snap up great deals just as soon as sellers put them on the site. eBay’s well-organized product catalog makes the site easy to navigate and most of the products make great sales. Having said that, some product categories do have a competitive edge. Whether you’re a buyer or seller, you’re going to want to check out these top-five eBay best sellers.
Mobile Phone & Accessories
We don’t have to tell you that novelty phone cases are an irresistible impulse buy but it isn’t just phone cases customers are sweet on. Phone accessories across the board are flying off virtual shelves. There is an average of 666 items in this category being sold per listing. 55,000 units of silicone cases for various versions of the iPhone and 65,000 units of tempered glass screen protectors were sold this year alone.
Video games are priced between $4.99 and $88 and back catalogs, classic titles and new games alike find scores of buyers. The costliest title listed on the platform was the Super Mario Bros Asian release on NES which was listed at $25,000.
The craft niche on eBay is huge, whether it’s custom jewelry-making kits, loose beads, natural gemstone, junk journals, scrapbooks, or paper goods. This year, the hottest item was the Natural Gemstone Round Spacer Loose beads – 5,663 units were sold in just 30 days.
Fashion is the most searched category on eBay and buyers look for vintage as well as new finds in almost equal measure. Best-selling men’s brands include The Territory Ahead and Ermenegildo Zegna, while women’s clothing brands like Eileen Fisher, FLAX, and Free People topped the best-seller charts.
Home and Garden
Old wall prints, lamps, planters, lighting, and furniture are sold at a steady clip on eBay but the most talked-about product in this category remains a set of Egyptian bed sheets, which netted the seller nearly half a million dollars in revenue in 2018 alone.
