Lego - Monday Market of the Week

Growing up, I recalled how my brothers went crazy over their Lego’s and I never imagined that these toys would stay in demand several years later! With the ever-growing number of parents who love spoiling their children, coupled with all the new Lego toys emerging,this certainly is a niche worth exploring.

To check if we have indeed found a good niche, let’s consult the SaleHoo Research Lab

Sell-through Rate: Did you really find a hot niche?

Our Research Lab shows us that Lego has a sell through rate of 50.59% meaning we are well within our target sell through rate of between 50%-60%.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

The average selling price for each Lego sold on eBay is $24.55 and depending on the type of Lego you want to sell, some of our wholesalers are selling Lego’s for as low as $9.95 giving you ample room for a decent mark up.

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: How viable is your market?

A huge number of sellers are currently selling Lego’s on eBay, with roughly 80,880 sellers we are definitely are up against a big market. But don’t let the competition discourage you. If you checked the total number of bids which basically gives us a rough idea of our market demand for Lego’s, I bet you’re smiling now – with 572,496 bids on 276,596 listings, there‘s almost 2 bids per listing! This means that while there is a lot of supply for Lego on eBay, there is also a high demand.

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

Using the SaleHoo Research Lab, we can also check how other sellers selling Lego’s are faring on eBay, in terms of the total number of items sold, the total revenue and average revenue – that’s how great our Research Lab is! You get to check your market before putting out any cash from your wallets. 

When I went over the graph for total revenue I was at awe when I saw the highest income recorded last November 28, 2011 at $318,591.89 while the lowest one was far from low at $95,600.98. Imagine the potential income you can gain from selling Lego’s!

Going beyond eBay: How popular is Lego online?

Not everything happens on eBay, with the many new auction sites and private web stores, it is best to check just how popular our product is online. To help us check whether Lego is indeed popular beyond eBay, we can turn to Traffic Travis, a free SEO software program. You can get your very own Traffic Travis software by visiting www.traffictravis.com

What do these numbers mean?

There are over 3 million people around the globe searching for Lego with at least a million in the US alone. Is that popular enough for you? It sure is for me!

With the figures shown above, imagine how much traffic you can direct to your online store or eBay listings. This is definitely something to look into.

Thank you very much for such valuable information. I took time researching dropshippers Lego items but I can not find any that do international shipping. You could tell us if there is a Lego supplier in SaleHoo listing with the above characteristics? Kind regards. Reply

Hi richellemonfort, Lego supplier #3 seem to be the ideal suppliers for Lego and quite a large number of other products that I would be interested in listing and selling on eBay using their dropshipping service, but from reading reviews written by previous customers I don't know whether to trust that their service has improved enough since 26th of June 2010 to take the risk. And these would only be a handful of the many customers they would have served over this period and there have not been any reviews that are more recent.. But as Salehoo Suppliers how thoroughly would they have been checked out? (Sorry folks but I've been scammed a few times). Regards. rhsp28 Reply

Hello rhsp28 and Jeffcoplaza, @rhsp28: Thanks your feedback! I understand your hesitation in using them, but if you check they have 7 good reviews out of 10 - which still makes them a fairly good supplier. Besides we have not received any serious complaints about this supplier, their products or services. We have other members who mentioned on the forum that they have used this suppliers on one or more occasion without any issues. We take a number of steps to ensure that suppliers meet our rigorous standards before they are added to the database. * All our wholesalers must meet minimum standards of service. Most notably, we insist that suppliers provide secure payment methods so that in the unlikely event of something going wrong, members can always get their money back. * We make anonymous purchases from all our suppliers and then rate them on price, speed, quality and service. * Our three-tiered review system means that you don't only get our opinion on a supplier - you also get ratings from other SaleHoo members and independent eBay powersellers! You don't need to take just our word for it... find out what everyone else is saying, and judge for yourself. * If a supplier receives a poor review, we keep both the supplier and the review in our database to alert other members. We believe that knowing who you can't trust is as important as knowing who you can. @jeffcoplaza: PM sent! All the best :) Reply
