On July 12th, 2016, Amazon is celebrating Prime Day, offering exclusive and discounted deals for their Prime members, only. Going by Amazon’s relentless marketing of the affair, it’s set to be a huge shopping event for both buyers and sellers.
Since a lot of sellers are probably going to sell popular items to make big sales, we direct you to the products (and their sources) that will truly make you stand out. Our suggestions are based on Amazon’s trending products.
1. Smartphone Camera Lens
According to our keyword search tool, a trend that has steadily grown during the last three years, smartphone camera lenses don’t just sell well, they also allow you to gather a strong margin for every unit sold.
The one mentioned here can be obtained from China at only $8 per unit and can be sold for as much as $20 on Amazon. It is compatible with most models and can be latched on to your phone easily, allowing you to zoom in 8X.
2. Bath Bombs
When Lush Cosmetics first introduced bath bombs in 1989, they didn’t really catch on. However, with the recent rise in organic skincare products, bath bombs frequently feature in bestselling lists.
You can import homemade bath bombs from China at just $0.95 per piece and sell it for as much as $3-$4 per piece on Amazon. They are available in a variety of different shapes (if you don’t like the typical spheres), scents, colors and packaging. You can also order samples.
