Amazon is a massive marketplace where anyone can buy or sell almost anything. In 2019 alone, Amazon sold over 2 billion products (that is 4,000 each and every minute). And with such a mind-boggling amount of product shipped each year (from toilet paper to TVs), it’s fascinating to see what types of merchandise people are buying the most!
Whether just you’re curious about what is hot on Amazon right now, or want to figure out what types of products might be hits for your own website or social media store-front, here’s a list of some of the top selling product on Amazon so far in 2020.
1. Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Streaming (Electronics)
Alright, we all saw this one coming from a mile away! It comes as little surprise that an Amazon product tops off this list, but the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K definitely deserves a top spot. It is one of the best media streamers you can get right now and is one of the most affordable. It is small, fast, supports Dolby vision, and has a very advanced and intuitive remote. And as indicated in the name, it supports some of the snappiest 4K video streaming.
2. Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) Smart Speaker (Electronics)
The 2nd spot also goes to Amazon (I promise, this isn’t a sponsored-content post). Smart speaks are the “IN” thing these days. By now, almost everyone has one, and the Amazon Echo Dot makes up a big part of the smart-speaker pie! Not only does the 3rd Gen Echo Dot look great and sound great, but it is a big improvement over previous generations and beats out the Google Home mini in most aspects. This is a great entry-level smart-speaker sytem.
3. Minecraft (Apps and Games)
If you haven’t heard of Minecraft by now, you’ve definitely been living under a rock! Minecraft is a Sandbox video game that allows you to create and explore a virtual world. You can build things, mine for resources and fight mobs, all to your heart’s content. It is like virtual Lego, but with limitless possibility and way more addicting.
4. Earth-Rated Dog Poop Bags (Pet Supplies)
That’s right folks, poop bags! But not just any poop bags, Earth-Rated Eco-Friendly Dog Poop Bags. These little guys are good for the environment, and are extremely compact and easy to carry around. They are extra-thick and strong, leak-proof, and have a pleasant lavender scent, which will be a god-send on those longer walks where trash cans are few and far between!
5. Wyze Cam Pan 1080p Indoor Smart Home Camera (Camera & Photo)
Now back to some gadgets! Security cameras are a popular item right now. Be it a fancy new door-bell cam or a more standard security camera, these devices are cheap, discreet, and easy to set up. The Wyze Cam Pan is no exception. It captures video in 1080p at 15fps, has an 8x zoom and a 120 degree field of view. Oh, and it also has night vision … just in case you were wondering!
6. Instant Pot Duo Mini Plus (Home & Kitchen)
People LOVE their Instant Pots. Even I’ll admit that I got one last year and have used it more times than I can count to prepare a quick and delicious meal. It is just the easiest way to cook: set-it and forget-it! You can use the slower-cooker setting the most tender, or pressure cook when you’re in a hurry! There are also a range of pre-sets for rice, soups and a bunch of other staple dishes. It truly is a 1 pot meal every time.
7. Fit Simply Resistance Loop Exercise Bands (Sports & Outdoors)
It can be a challenge of its own to filter through all the junk fitness products on the market and find a solution that actually works. However, sometimes the simplest solution is the best solution. Given their popularity, Fit Simply Resistance Exercise Bands are exactly that. A simple way to work out using a time-tested technology. Resistance bands are flexible, portable and durable. And best of all, they can be used in a myriad of different workouts.
8. BalanceForm GoYoga Mat (Sports & Outdoors)
In continuing with the work-out theme, yoga mats are a go-to piece of equipment when at the gym. They are great for stretching, floor workouts, yoga and more. BalanceForm’s GoYoga mats top Amazon’s list. These premium mats are made from thick, comfortable, and durable high-density foam material. They also come with a handy strap for you to easily carry to and from the gym!
9. Kindle Paperwhite e-reader (Electronics)
If you’ve been thinking of getting an e-reader for a while, read no further and get the Kindle Paperwhite. It isn’t Kindle’s flag-ship e-reader, but for the very reasonable price, you’re getting a reliable, feature-filled device. It has a 6” anti-glare screen, up to 32GB of storage, WiFi or cellular connectivity, 300 ppi resolution, and a battery that lasts for weeks! Oh, and it is WATERPROOF! So whether you’re in the mood for a quiet evening or some beach-side reading, this one’s go you covered.
10. XBox One S (Video Games)
The new Xbox One S has everything a modern gamer could want. It is everything that the previous generation was, but better. 40% smaller than the original, this little powerhouse supports 4K Ultra HD and all of the latest games. It also supports backwards compatibility, so you’ll be able to play all your previous favourites without having to dig up your previous gen console.
BONUS: Tailbone Pain Relief Cushion – Coccyx Cushion (Automotive)

This orthopedic seat cushion is made of 100% pure memory foam. It is designed to help improve posture and relieve leg pain while driving or sitting for long periods of time.
