One of the burning questions that surrounds Shopify is what to sell. What merchandise are you going to see the most significant ROI on so that you aren’t wasting your time (and money)? If you’re in search of best products to sell on Shopify, here are a few ideas to help you get the ball rolling.
10 of the Best Products to Sell on Shopify
Notebooks and Planners: Many people are striving to return to simplicity and a more grounded approach to their lifestyle, which is probably one of the main reasons why handwriting is back in style. Journals, notebooks, and planners are all very popular eCommerce sellers.
Pet Beds: According to Google, the search for “pet beds” is only growing. That’s right. Keywords Everywhere says that the term “dog bed” gets over 246,000 searches monthly.
High-quality Tea: Tea is becoming more and more popular as people are increasingly becoming more health conscious and are striving towards healthier living. Tea has long been known for its health benefits, and good tea is not as readily available in the Western world as other parts of the globe. Thus, it’s easy to brand as “exotic,” making it easier to market in places like North America.
Electronics: With everyone using a smartphone, tablet or some similar mobile device, anything electronic is bound to do well (think phone chargers, screen protectors, cases, etc). Oh, and don’t forget those beloved “Pop sockets”!
CBD for Pets: CBD products are becoming increasingly popular with the legalization in many areas. Studies are pointing to the benefits of CBD not only for humans but possibly for pets as well. Many companies are marketing pet-safe CBD (that is 100% THC free) that may help with epilepsy, joint pain, tumours, anxiety, and more.
Smartwatches: Last year, over 1.2 billion watches were sold (globally). Smartwatches are on trend with the new minimalistic mindset and are increasingly popular.
Posture Correctors: In a study done by Columbia University, it was found the over 77% of people spend their time in a sitting or sedentary position. Combine that with many people sitting at a desk, hunched over looking at a computer screen, or bent over their smartphone, and you have a regular epidemic of poor posture. No wonder people are searching for a good posture corrector.
Unique Socks: Yes, socks are really, really popular. They have been for quite some time in the eCommerce world. They make great gifts, stocking stuffers, and are just plain fun if you find them with a cool pattern.
Athleisure: Not everyone is working out THAT much; however, millennial women especially are increasingly drawn to fashionable “comfort clothes,” which is precisely what Athleisure is. People love not having to give up their comfort for fashion, and that’s why yoga pants aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
Pet Grooming Products: Say what you might, but searches indicate that more people are opting to treat their pets to an in-home spa day than you realize. Pet grooming products are a popular bestseller.
