Are you searching for products you’d like to sell?
It can be a challenge to strike the right balance between sticking with popular products or switching it up with something that might sell even better.

Use Amazon tools to find products ideas:
Look for higher demand, lower competition products
You may see products in high demand, but what’s the competition like? The number of reviews can give you an idea. Generally, high-demand products with a lower number of reviews indicate lower competition and an opportunity for you to jump in.
Keep an eye on “Most Wished For” products
Want a window into what customers are looking for right now?
