What should you sell to be successful in 2019?
Best products to sell in 2019
Online sales have changed the way we view shopping, as we can basically buy and sell anything online. There are multiple channels available, each and everyone similar, but also different, to match the special requirements of each seller or buyer.
Commodity or niche products?
No matter what industry you pick, there are really only two kinds of products to sell, which are: commodity products and niche products. But let’s be honest, one cannot build a successful and thriving business by selling products of little interest, regardless of how passionate one could be about them.
For example, if you’re passionate about collecting stamps from Peru, keep it as a hobby, don’t invest in making that a business. It’s a too obscure niche. Try finding something of more interest.
In order to inspire you, we’ve created a list of the most popular items or products to sell in 2019, guaranteed to bring serious profit this year. And we have asked the biggest selling channels for insights.

From their point of view, shapewear is becoming one of the best niches to start a store in. By 2022, the shapewear market is expected to skyrocket to about $5.6 billion in sales. What started as an undergarment has transitioned to a piece for everyday wear.
Travel accessories, men’s plaid shirts, and even smart gadgets are something to consider selling this year. And seeing that cars become increasingly digital, digital automotive accessories are becoming more and more popular among consumers.
We can’t forget Amazon, though, the most popular selling platform in the world. Amazon’s best-selling list compiles a real-time selection of shoppers’ top products in each category, which is updated hourly.

Still not convinced on a lucrative niche to bring you substantial profit in 2019? Let’s see what eBay has to offer, as its market is immense, with over 167 million buyers worldwide. Some of these could be your customers if you focus on selling something of interest.
