24 Top Trending Products to Sell At Your Ecommerce and Dropshipping Store in 2018

Trending Products to sell
Reading Time: 19 minutes

[UPDATED] A majority of ecommerce stores fail because they can’t find trending products to sell. With so many products already available in the market, finding one that sells the best has become an arduous task, especially when there is endless competition and every second ecommerce store is trying to follow the same strategy. In such a scenario, what will make you more money? Being unique, staying alert, and experimenting more often.

In a hurry? Navigate directly to the list of trending products you can sell.

 

Characteristics of a Best Selling Product ^

The most common strategy of finding a trending product is this: You go to AliExpress flash deals page and search for products that are trending. And, then you import products to your store and start promoting. This strategy is a hit and miss.

I am not saying that it will not work, it might work sometimes, but you have to put in a lot of your efforts and time. That’s why it is better to understand the type of products that have a potential to sell.

Here are the top characteristics of best trending ecommerce products in 2018:

  • Unique, or Eye-Catching: Make sure that the product you have selected to sell is unique. It shouldn’t have a similar clone available. Or, it should not be already available in brick and mortar stores in your area.
  • Difficult to Find: If the product is unique, people will definitely try to search for it. This means the demand will be high. Many ecommerce store owners will try to introduce the product on their stores. Now, you have to take the lead and start marketing it.
  • Price Is Not Available: Make sure that consumers can’t find the actual price of the product. Most of the dropshippers are buying products from AliExpress and selling them on their ecommerce stores. Make sure that your customers can’t find the price of the product easily.
  • Not Sold Within Country: Make sure the product is not available within the country. If the product is available in the country, in brick and mortar stores, then why will people buy it from your estore?
  • Available for a Healthy Markup: On an average, dropshipping products range between $10 & $40. This is because people can easily spend this amount online to buy products. The behavior is called buying on an impulse. Anything that is above this price tag makes people skeptical. And, they start to think ‘will they get value from this product?’ or ‘should they buy it for this price?’ They then end up comparing prices on various ecommerce stores and buy from those that have the lowest price.

Now that you know the top characteristics of trending products to sell, here is a list of those products that can double your conversions in 2018.
