List of Best selling Product Ideas

1. Cello Bags

An important product, if someone is running a business which involves the careful design, manufacturing and retailing of baked products, fruits or grocery items, one want something that protects one’s precious final product from damage. With the right sort of box, one can protect one’s hard work while one put it out on the display case or sell it at the farmers market, ensuring that it won’t spoil while it waits to be purchased.

Quick spy search shows that the average sales for cello bags is approx. 4076 and average price to be around $8.93.

Below are the details of search results. Following could be few quick observation of this.

  • Prices of various search results hovers around average price $8.93.
  • This product has 200 pieces of clear resealable bags of size 6X9.
  • FBA fulfilment fee for the first item which is closest to average price is around $5.93, 66.4% of sales price. This is damn high!
  • Fortunately there is no referral fee for this item. This is a big relief out here.
  • This means we would be left with $3 for our advertisement / promotions and profit margin

Now it is time to identify cost of the product. We looked at alibaba.com for similar product and got the same product. The price of the product ranges from $0.01 to $0.02 per piece. This means for 200 pieces it would vary from $2 to $4, averaging around $3 for 200 pieces. This also holds when there is minimum order of 10000 pieces.

This means with average wholesale cost of $3 for this product, we would be left with nothing even for our balance expenditure like promotion and marketing.

  3. FBA fulfilment fee is $4.49. This is 37.5% of sales price of the item. This looks to be in comfortable zone based on our experience with different items.
