Below are the 18 of the Most Profitable Amazon Products. For this analysis, we looked only to Amazon FBA Sellers within the US Marketplace. The top producer in this list is generates a jaw-dropping $11 million per month. It’s estimated this amounts to roughly $300k a per day in profit.
Are the items below a product of hard work, dedication and a mastery of Amazon’s platform? Or can they be more attributed to dumb luck and fortunate timing? We haven’t done a deep dive per listing and can’t answer this question.
We do know, however, that the FBA products below offer great insights into the potential on Amazon. Some of the noted items are fairly new concepts, like weighted blankets and paddle boards. Five years ago these didn’t exist on mainstream marketplaces. Today, they’re among the most profitable Amazon products.
The sales traffic and revenues figures for all items on our Most Profitable Amazon Products were collected using one of our favorite Amazon Seller Tools, Viral Launch.
If an Amazon Seller looking for products to sell, we suggest not looking at the info below as a “suggested products” list. But rather as a valuable set of data-points to help find inspiration. Look past the item itself to evaluate the market size, demographic, product qualities, and the listing itself.
Below you’ll find 18 of the most profitable Amazon products (Amazon FBA & US Marketplace). Each is selling over $100k per day
We were amazed to see the number of essential oils among the most profitable products on Amazon. This chamomile flavor (wait, that doesn’t seem right)… variation, is just one of numerous types of oil pulling in millions on Amazon. Please click through and view the item. The Amazon FBA listing has one image and no A+ content. It has to be the least optimized yet most profitable product in the history of e-commerce.

Congratulations to this Amazon FBA Seller. This product seems to fill all of the checkboxes when looking for a winning product. It’s small, so minimizes storage and shipping costs. It’s presumably very cheap to manufacture. It’s ripe for repeat customer and it’s likely buyers will opt in for repeat purchases. It’s listing page is pretty good, although could use a little tweaking. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
Bed sheets were a common item on the Most Profitable Amazon Products list. You’ll find countless variations raking in millions per month. We had no idea that this was such a hot commodity. Again, this product has the benefits of a slightly smaller size, low cost, and massive market size. Barriers to entry seem to be minimal, so likely not a lot of potential for new sellers. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
We constantly see “the pillow guy” advertising on mainstream networks. Given the numbers found on Viral Launch, it’s no wonder. People love pillows. Personally, we’re not updating pillows very often but suppose we’re in the minority. Pillows will take up a bit more space in your dedicated Amazon FBA space, but with the turnover seen above it doesn’t seem to be an issue for these guys. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This could potentially be a “flash in the pan” type product. A quick looks at Google Trends shows interest in this topic is just about at its peak. Although, it’s been a consistent growth over the past five years so could potentially have legs. A look at our profile pic will show that we haven’t been buying from these guys. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This might be the riskiest product found on our Most Profitable Amazon Products List. It’s incredibly bulky and we’re amazed to see the millions of dollars in sales generated above. The devoted space in Amazon’s warehouse must be massive. In the rack space needed to hold one weight bench, you could fit hundreds of the smaller products noted above. With great risk comes great reward. The size and capital outlay of this product also means huge barriers of entry to new competitors. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This is another “high risk” product given the size. Additionally, this Amazon FBA seller faces the risk of broken product. Every FBA Seller knows that Amazon frequently breaks items. There’s also the risk associated with delivery. On a 95 degree day, the delivery guy wants to put this bulky item down as fast as possible and might not be as gentle as hoped in doing so. This product faces huge barriers to entry. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
The “Home and Kitchen” category is on fire this year. People are stranded and devoting much more time to domestic activities. It’s no wonder this product is blowing up. Like the two items above, there’s higher costs and greater risk of items breaking. It’s also likely that potential consumers are partial to brands with higher-priced products like this one. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
Everyone has heard of the Robovac and it seems everyone is now buying them on Amazon. This hugely successful product is in most big-box retailers and we’re not surprised to see it here as well. There may or may not be potential here to compete on price here. We haven’t done the research. It’s definitely not a product for first-time sellers for obvious reasons. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
The Fitness category is another benefiting from recent events. Gyms are closed and people are looking for alternatives. Fitbit is a huge name in the industry and we’re curious how partial consumers are to the brand given the many alternatives on the market. Given the relatively low price of this item, though, there would have to be some significant product differentiation to compete in this space. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This item may have the most potential of all listed on our Most Profitable Amazon Products List. The market is massive and this particular brand doesn’t seem to have significant brand recognition. We could be completely wrong on this and it’s obvious from the mess on top of our heads. Benefits of this item include low cost, small space requirements, huge market, and lack of known brands competing. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
It’s not obvious how much space an inflatable paddle board takes, but we’re guessing it’s not trivial. We’re not advising anyone to compete here that doesn’t already have a paddle board operation. But, it’s a good proxy for other outdoor physical activities. The space is ripe for new products or variations on existing success stories. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
Anything with the keyword “weighted” in its title should throw up big red flags. Interest for weighted blankets peaked in late 2019. There’s obviously still a market, though, and we’re staying far away from it. We’ve heard from one-too-many sellers that have tens of thousands of pounds of these products in storage. We’re glad we never jumped on this bandwagon. This seller is very glad he did. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
The Amazon FBA program requires health and wellness products to pass certain criteria, particularly given recent events. We’re not sure whether this item is included in that scrutiny nor how rigorous the approval process. The benefit of passing these hurdles is the inherent barrier to entry. We’d be interested in learning more about listing aloe vera and also how it performs in smaller quantities than the item above. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This (or similar) was recently on Shark Tank. We’d never heard of it prior to this debut and guessing that gave it the boost necessary to adorn our Most Profitable Amazon Products List. It’s likely an extremely difficult market to enter given the complexity, size, cost, and branding issues. We’re also curious how well it works with the weighted blanket above. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This is another item we’d consider as having strong potential. Everyone has windows (hopefully) and needs curtains at some point. More importantly, though, is there is obvious potential for product differentiation. Curtains can be any variation of color, pattern or even theme. There’s also sizing issues. Presumably, there’s more and more potential to be noticed with each additional customization. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
Yeti broke onto the scene recently. At least, we think it did. We’re not particularly hip, so maybe it’s been around a while. Like Starbucks, it created a completely new niche of product. Sure Yeti mugs are better than Contigo or others. But are they 5x better? Nope. People buy these at least partly as a status symbol. We’d be very curious to see what other common items could do similar with a few improvements and a huge markup. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
This wins our “ummm… really?” award. We see more crocs in Internet memes than we do out in the wild. But, who are we to judge based on these numbers? While they’re selling 3,600 shoes per day, we’re here writing content. You win, Croc seller. Check out the quality of this product listing here on Amazon.
Again, the data included above is based on the U.S. Marketplace. It was collected using Viral Launch. We’ve relied on their product for years and it’s been instrumental in our growth to become a 7-figure seller. You can read more about Viral Launch here.
