Sourcing Nova has always had an idea to write about the best Chinese products to sell on Amazon.  Several tools, like Jungle Scout, can help new sellers with product analysis, but this particular article is different.  Our sources are much more reliable.

Many rely on data analysis tools like Google Trends for their research for top selling items on Amazon.  These are not comprehensive.  The results are demand-side analysis and not supply-side analysis.  Sourcing Nova has access to information that Westerners simply cannot access.  More specifically:

  • We can get statistical reports from many industry associations
  • We can get export data from Chinese customs
  • We can get industry development reports issued by the Chinese government
  • We can buy industry research and supply chain analyses of various industries

 

In other words, we can see what products are popular from the demand side but also what products have better prospects in the supply chain from the supply side.

Who better to help you find these best selling products than your personal sourcing agent in China?

What Sourcing Nova cannot source to sell on Amazon?

As we start, there are a few products that cannot be sourced from China for various reasons.

  • Products under contract – Some products, like Apple Air Pods, are high demand.  We also know where these are made.  However, we cannot source them for you because of the contract does not allow for third party production.
  • Dangerous products – Beard oil, for example, as a liquid does not ship internationally very well.
  • Foods, beverages and anything that can be ingested – This includes dog food.
  • Illegal in China – BB guns and CBD oils are illegal in China and cannot be sourced.
  • High entry barriers – Smart televisions are often purchased with brand names from large retailers.  Private label smart televisions do not sell well.
  • Living things – Live animals and plants are not sourced.

 

Sourcing Nova has a single goal – to help you make money by finding the best products to sell on Amazon.  We want to do this in the right and legal way without breaking rules.  Neither of us want to run into legal issues.

Please be sure to open up a fresh tab, and visit the sourcing services available with Sourcing Nova.  Keep this up while you are looking at the best products to sell on Amazon we have researched for you.

What do all of the Amazon best sellers have in common?

The main thing is quality stability, fewer issues after the sale and are in a continual need for customers.  If there is a short term product that may prove a poor long term investment, we will let you know.

PPE and Gear

PPE, personal protective equipment and safety gear are one of the most exported products from China.  We carry n95 masks, disinfection sprayer, hand sanitizers, face shields, DNA testing gear, and these are all stable demands in the current market.  These are not recommended for sourcing and selling currently.

Some electronic products are small, high value and easy standardization, making them top selling items on Amazon.  The inventory replacement is very swift, and inventory control is important.

Home & Kitchen

More people are staying home because of the pandemic.  This means more time to decorate interiors.  Many restaurants are not open for inside dining, and people are doing more cooking at home.  The result is an uptick in kitchen supplies making them some of the best products to sell on Amazon.

Small kitchen appliances last for a considerable time, but the competition for these products is high.  Most kitchen appliances are in Shunde and Zhongshan, Guangdong and are of the highest quality.  Cheaper models come from Yiwu, Zhejiang.  Their reputation and product quality cannot compare with the Guangdong quality.

 

Air fryers

The demand for air fryers has outpaced other kitchen appliances since 2010.  The U.S. is the leader of air fryer purchases since these reduce daily fat intake for obesity rate control.
