Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) posts its most popular items based on unit sales. It calls the list “Amazon Best Sellers.” The list draws from six primary categories, with the top 20 selling items in each. These include toys and games, electronics, camera and photo, video games, books, and clothing, shoes and jewelry. Amazon does not make it entirely clear whether these categories exhaust a list of the very best-selling products, but it presents them as if they were. Amazon also offers free shipping on over 100 million items.Adobe, which officially tracks the e-commerce sales from 80 of the 100 largest websites, reported that Black Friday sales reached $5.03 billion, up 16.9% from last year. The company’s research shows that every day since the start of November, e-commerce has posted online sales of over $1 billion, which has never happened before.

Amazon is the widely acknowledged leader of online sales. Its lead is based to a large extent on the huge audience that goes to its site; the popularity of its Prime program, which offers both free shipping and a huge video on demand streaming video content library; its discounts; and its ability to launch and successfully promote its own consumers electronics products, the most recent of which are Fire Stick TV, Echo Dot and several devices powered by its Alexa “intelligent personal assistant.”

Notably, some categories are dominated by one or two brands. Among the products in Electronics, almost the entire list is Amazon products. In other categories, varying versions of the same products may be among the best sellers. In Cameras & Photos, Fuji Film has several versions of its film, broken out by the number of photos per roll.

Some items are also less expensive for customers with Prime subscriptions. When there is more than one price for an item, we used the base price. One reason for varying prices for the same item is that several vendors may sell them. Amazon updates all best-seller lists once an hour, although based on our observations, the lists do not change much hour-to-hour.
