About the data

All the data in this article comes from eBay data analytics tool ShelfTrend.

We analyzed categories that mainly include mass-produced products that are sold new and at a fixed price. Categories where one-of-a-kind items are sold, such as Antiques and Collectibles, and media categories such as Books and Music have been excluded.

The “most popular categories” tables show the subcategories with the most listings in the top 500 search results for each main category.

All other data is based on sales for the top 100 search results in each selected subcategory. This includes the average number of items sold, price range, average price, top brands and 30-day sales trends.

We then focused on the best-selling items in the subcategory based on the total number of units sold, and the total value of sales over a 30-day period.

This research was carried out in March to April 2019.
