We are happy to announce that we have included categories a seller sells in into the data available. This is displayed for all Amazon countries. Now when browsing sellers you can quickly glance at the amount of products they have in stock and also what categories are those products spread across. This makes it that much more easier to understand what focus does a seller have.
For example the top seller in February 2016 fastest growing sellers report Punch Skin Care shows exclusively as selling in the Beauty, Health & Grocery department.
Top Amazon.com departments sorted by the amount of active marketplace sellers in them look like this:
- Books & Audible
- Home, Garden & Tools
- Electronics & Computers
- Sports & Outdoors
- Automotive & Industrial
- Clothing, Shoes & Jewelry
- Beauty, Health & Grocery
- Toys, Kids & Baby
- Movies, Music & Games
No surprise that Books & Audible is still leading the charts as it is the oldest department. Other positions are mostly in-line with top-grossing categories as reported by the financial reports.
By the way, categories are also available for all eBay sellers as well.
