List of Best selling Product Ideas

1. Artificial flower bouquets with vase

Artificial flower bouquets provide a sweet and romantic atmosphere in one’s space without any of the troublesome maintenance. This would be perfect for both indoor and outdoor décor, especially wedding decoration, office, home, bedroom, living room, bathroom, kitchen and balcony. These artificial flowers are more lifelike and natural than others in the market. Meanwhile the simple but elegant ceramic vase can bring out their truly beauty better.

Quick spy search shows average sales of 6175 units which is reflection of very good demand and average price of $16.69. Following is the summary of search results:


It would be important to see the actual realization price for the product. Hence I have summarized the pricing part below:

Product Artificial flower bouquets with vase
Price $16.69 Average price for selected items are considered
FBA Fulfilment fee $5.23 FBA fulfilment fee for options has been considered, price of which is closest to average one
Referral Fee (15%) $2.35 15% of price has been attributed to referral fee
Price Realization $9.11

How much does it cost from manufacturers?

Looking at alibaba.com to identify results of similar product. The price ranges from $4.06 to $5.28 per set.

How much profit can it make?

We would analyze profitability for all the possible cases:

Best Case Base Case
Sales Price for 1 set $16.69 $16.69
– FBA fulfillment fee $5.23 $5.23
– Referral Fee (15%) $2.35 $2.35
Net Realization price for 1 set $9.11 $9.11
Cost for 1 set $4.06 $5.28
Net profit Margin for 1 set $ 5.05 $3.83
Net Profit Margin % 30.2% 22.9%

 

Verdict: This is a great business to be in as profit margin would be in range of 22-30% and the demand for the product is also good.

2. Decorative cushion pillow cover

These decorative cushion pillow cover are suitable for home, living room, bed room, sofa, couch, chair, window seat, car, office, coffee shop etc. It is a great gift for your family and friends on holidays.

 


Demand for the product as indicated by average sales figures is quite good. Average price is $14.14. We looked at the specific result and initiate the research. Let’s see the following listed results:

Product Decorative cushion pillow cover (pack of 4)
Price $14.14 Average price considered
FBA Fulfilment fee $5.97 FBA fulfilment fee has been considered for this price
Referral Fee (15%) $2.2 15% of price has been attributed to referral fee as per FBA Calculator
Price Realization $5.93

FBA fulfilment and Referral fee is approx. ~58% of the sales price which is quite high. Let’s understand if there is possibility to make profile by selling this product.
We looked at Alibaba.com to understand wholesale cost of pillow covers and we got following comparable items

 

We would extrapolate to consider set of 4 pc, which would range from $3.84 to $ 7.12 depending on the order size.

How much profit can it make?
We would analyze profitability for all the possible cases:

Best Case Base Case
Sales Price for Pillow Cover Set (pack of 4) $14.14 $14.14
– FBA fulfillment fee $5.97 $5.97
– Referral Fee (15%) $2.2 $2.2
Net Realization price for the entire set $5.93 $5.93
Cost for set of 4 $3.84 $7.12
Profit Margin $ 2.09 – $ 1.19

 

Verdict: Profit margin for this product ranges from -$1.19 to $2.09. Even in the best case, the profit margin is just ~14% which is not a very healthy margin and would require big order size. Hence we call this a so-so product.

3. Cotton lace table cloth

The white lace tablecloth comes in various fabric and shape. Usually there are two kinds of fabrics -Terry fabric and Knitted fabric. The shape is largely either rectangle or round. It is suited for rectangle tables, for party banquet dining wedding decorations.
Quick search shows that the average sales is 6060 which reflects its good demand.

Average price is $40.8. But the prices are quite different for different line items depending upon the fabric and shape. We have selected the second line item for comparison.

 

Now let’s see what could be actual realization price for the product.

Product Cotton lace table cloth
Price $16.50 Price considered for selected items
FBA Fulfilment fee $7.42 FBA fulfilment fee has been considered for the selected item
Referral Fee (15%) $2.5 15% referral fee as per FBA Calculator
Price Realization $6.58

 

Now let’s identify the cost of item. Alibaba.com has similar product listed, snapshot of which is as below:

 

How much profit does it make?

Amount (in $)
Sales Price $16.50
– FBA fulfillment fee $7.42
– Referral Fee (15%) $2.5
Net Realization price $6.58
Cost $ 2.50
Net profit Margin for 1 piece $ 4.08

This means that after selling product for $16.50 and paying for FBA fulfillment and referral fee and taking the cost of product away, we would be left with at max $4.08 for payment of advertisement or promotions and taking away the balance as pure profit margin if there are no other overheads. This would mean that we are having margin of ~25%

Verdict: Though there is quite a good demand and in addition a good profit margin makes it an attractive business to be in. Highly recommended

4. Bamboo wood flatware organizer

Bamboo wood flatware organizer makes it easy to keep your kitchen or office drawer organized. It simplifies one’s life and beautify one utensil drawer with Bamboo Expandable Utensil Drawer Organizer. The cutlery tray is ideal for holding all types of kitchen utensils or office supplies. This product is a beautiful and functional addition to any kitchen.

Now let’s look at some number to see how this fares from business perspective. Quick spy search give us the below result:

 


    1. Average sales of product is 5657 and average price is approx. $21.17. However if we look at the discrete search results, we see that it ranges a lot. Demand for the product is good
    2. Let’s take the 4th search results which is large bamboo drawer organizer. The price of the product is $19.99. This large elegant kitchen drawer organizer measures 17 inches in length, 12 inches wide, and 2 inches deep. The 6 convenient and sizable compartments make it easy to organize all of your cutlery. Snapshot of the item is as below

  1. FBA fulfillment fee of $8.43: Well that means Amazon takes 42 % as FBA fees
  2. In additional referral fee would be 15% of the product price that would be additional $2.99 Hence FBA fulfillment fee and referral fee together takes away ~57% of the price of the product.

57% of price is gone in fees, seems too difficult to cover all the cost, marketing expense and generating profit. But it is too early to say. Let’s look at the cost of the product to see what are we left with as profit margin.

We looked at Alibaba.com to look at the price of same item. Well the cost ranges from US$4.0 to US$6.0 averaging around US$5.0 per piece. That’s quite accommodative.

 

 

How much profit can it make?

Best Base Worst
Sales Price for 1 unit $19.99 $19.99 $19.99
– FBA fulfillment fee $8.43 $8.43 $8.43

Cost for 1 piece $4.0 $5.0 $6.0
Net profit Margin for 1 piece $4.57 $3.57 $2.57

Cool!! You get to earn US$ 2.57 to $4.57 per piece to spend for ads and accruing profits. That’s approx. 13-23% of sales price. I would say this is a good business.

Verdict: Recommended – Good business potential both from profitability and demand point of view.
