best things to sell online in 2020

(scroll to the bottom if you just want to know the best things to sell online)

You’ve read articles about people who are making money selling products online and they rave about how you can make money selling products on Amazon or Shopify. 

You’re skeptical, and you decide to dig deeper. How do you actually sell products online? What are the best things to sell online? How much can you actually make? How quickly can you start selling items?

And that’s why you’re here — reading this blog and trying to figure out the answers to some of those questions.

Chances are, if you dig around long enough, you will have stumbled on countless posts claiming they know the best things to sell online and include a list of products you can start selling. The problem with these lists is that they are garbage because they are just spitting out a bunch of products that people are already selling! Let me explain what is wrong with that…

High Competition

These lists are made a few different of ways.

  1. Using the products that they see on a lot of Shopify stores
  2. Look at the best seller lists on Amazon
  3. Best selling items on Aliexpress, Oberlo, or Spocket

These lists are great to get your creative juices going, but they aren’t really going to be good products to sell because there are so many people already selling these products. They basically just curated a list of the most competitive products to try to sell because these are lists of products already being sold by so many people.

Unreliable Data

The harsh reality is that these lists are made by somebody who is a content marketing person. Or a blogger. So they are using a very manual process to pick these products. What is their criteria on whether or not it is a good product? They don’t normally share what the criteria was, or how they came to the conclusion these products are the best things to sell online. So chances are, they don’t have good criteria or good data to come to their conclusions.

No Supplier Info

Another issue is that their product suggestions don’t have any supplier recommendations. There’s no burden on them to pick products that can easily be sourced. So even if the product idea was good, you likely won’t be able to find a supplier to get started with.
