If you are an Amazon FBA seller then you already know that your business runs on the base of buying at a low price and selling it at a higher price. In this process, the rank of a product actually decides it’s actual worth when you are making a decision of what should be the cost of your product.

What if I tell you that every product that is present on Amazon has a proper ranking in the department of sales numerically in which if you have a lower number for your product than you are going to have more profit. For any Amazon FBA seller, the goal should be to have a source on the products which have a high ranking.

You should buy those products at the price as low as possible and then you should further sell those products at a higher price if you want to make a profit from this business.

How good a product sells decides its sales ranking on Amazon and it is a very good indication for the sellers. You should also look for the average ranking of any product as well because some products sell from season to season.

For example, an air conditioner will only sell in the summer season and not in the winters and similarly, a heater will sell only in the winters and not in summers.

If you look at the current ranking of any product then you are most probably looking at the recent sales of it and it is not going to indicate how good or bad it is going to sell in the near future. For example mobile covers, they will sell well until a new model from the same company will not be launched and the sales will go down after that.

You should also remember that the ranking of any product usually differs from genre to genre. If you are looking for a product in the category of stationery which usually has more than 100’s of products in it and the ranking for any product in this category would differ for any genre with might be only 1 or 2 products.

You should also keep in mind that the rank of a product can be easily affected by even just the sale of 1 product.
