A report from Latona’ has outlined the best products, categories, countries and demographics for Amazon sellers by analysing a series of different data sets.
The United States boasts 69% of total Amazon sales, an unsurprising fact as CEO Jeff Bezos has long since made America the target audience and home of the company.
