Amazon has revealed its best-selling products since launching its retail offering. The top four best-selling items are video games with FIFA 18 PS4 topping the list, closely followed by Call of Duty: WW2 PS4 and Star Wars Battlefront II PS4. HDMI cable and wireless bluetooth speaker came in at number five and six.
The popular non-tech items to make it to the top ten are books, with The Barefoot Investor coming in at number seven and Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food ranking as the eighth best-selling product in Australia.
With The Last Jedi premiere, two of the best-selling products on the list are Star Wars related—Rogue One: A Star Wars Story CD and the Star Wars Death Star 3D LED lamp.
Amazon Australia country manager, Rocco Braeuniger said, “In the run up to Christmas it is not surprising to see video games featuring prominently in the top ten. Outside of the top ten, Australians have been buying everything from daily essentials, including nappies and socks, to bigger purchases such as wearable tech and cameras.
“We focus on the Australian customer and on long term success. With this in mind we continue to work hard to deliver great customer experience and fast delivery; and to provide customers with an ever-increasing selection of products at low prices.”
The top five best-selling products in New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia and South Australia were entirely technology based. Only Tasmania and the Northern Territory buck the trend with books, makeup and household goods making it into their top five best-selling products.
New South Wales is the state to have made the most purchases, with the Kindle Paperwhite being its most popular product. However, the first purchase made on Amazon.com.au was L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation.
