The Best Items to Sell Online or with Affiliate Links

 Why is doing online sales a Good Idea?

If you are reading this then chances are you are an aspiring entrepreneur that is always looking for new ways to increase both your active and passive incomes. One of the best ways to earn in the current economy, that really doesn’t take a huge amount of time is selling products through online shops and through affiliate links with companies like Amazon. What are the hot sellers? Well, it varies from niche to niche, but this is an overview of the consistent high sellers from all categories.

E-Commerce is considered one of the best ways to make money in 2019, and that is not even as a full reseller (who buys products, lists, and ships). New opportunities in the area of drop shipping and affiliate marketers that simply place links and ads on their own sites and collect commissions on the sale.

So, don’t worry if you don’t fancy yourself a merchant, you don’t have to be. If you can sign up as an Amazon Affiliate (link is below) and place links online via social media or a website, then you can make a passive income selling online. Through drop shipping or affiliate links, you simply market the products and someone else ships/collects the money and then pays you. Below are some of the best sellers year to year as listed on Amazon!

Hot Sellers


Whether its fiction, self-help, or business related it is a hot seller. This is both e-books and paper books, across all genres. The most profitable thing is to write your own e-book and sell it through the Kindle Publishing App here. But, if you are not a writer and do not wish to pay a ghostwriter, then stick to selling other peoples books for a commission through Amazon’s Affiliate Program here. Below are some of Amazon’s hottest sellers in the book category.
