Cloth Diapers - Monday Market of the Week

Which niche did we discover this week? If I recall correctly this is our third blog featuring a baby product!

This week with the help of the SaleHoo Research Lab, we will investigate how promising cloth diapers are!

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

Based on the data from  January, cloth diapers have a sell through rate of 61.25%! This being my initial indicator I knew I found a product worth a closer look.

Remember to opt for products that hit at least the 50% mark for sell through rate.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

Cloth diapers have a median end price of $25.78. If you read these posts often, you will know that the median end price is the average selling price per unit sold  in the prior month.

Currently, one of our suppliers sells a pair of organic cotton cloth diaper for $14.90 giving you almost $10 in profit.

You should also check our Snapshot which shows you the products average price and the average Buy It Now price for a closer look at how much these cloth diapers are selling on eBay.

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

There’s a relatively low number of sellers listing cloth diapers on eBay compared to the total number of bids being made and this certainly gives every seller more room to make a sale!

As of January, there were 1,950 sellers listing 3,040 cloth diapers while there are 11,732 bids.

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

Another metric I like to immediately check when I do a search on the SaleHoo Research Lab is the total revenue made by eBay sellers.

This helps me determine whether they are earning a decent income before  I consider featuring the product for our Monday Market of the Week.

The SaleHoo Research Lab easily allows you to check the total number of items sold, total revenue and average revenue. 

Referring to the graph above you can easily see that sellers of cloth diapers are definitely making money with the highest income recorded at $5,184.00 last January 30, 2012.

Going beyond eBay: How popular is are cloth diapers online?

I initially used a slightly different keyword but with the help of Traffic Travis, our free SEO software, I was able to discover a more popular keyword or product one with a higher search volume outside of eBay.

What do these numbers mean?

The first product I searched on the SaleHoo Research Lab was cloth diaper but when I ran a keyword research using Traffic Travis’ Research tool I saw that cloth diapers had higher search counts and upon consulting the SaleHoo Research Lab, I also found that it had better numbers to show as well.

Currently there are at least 40,500 searches worldwide and 33,100 searches in the US for cloth diapers while there are only 6,600 searches worldwide and 2,400 searches in the US for cloth diaper. Notice the difference?

Please note that higher search counts may not always mean higher sales but definitely more you have more traffic to drive to your online store or eBay listings.

Thanks Richelle. I'm new to online selling and Salehoo, and this is one of the markets I'm considering! Do you know of any reliable suppliers in Japan/China/Hong Kong, or Asia in general? The search traffic seems to indicate that this is a relatively unknown market outside the US. Does Salehoo have info as to how to break into, and enlarge existing but small markets?

Hello everyone :) @MayaChan: I don’t have any suppliers from Asia at hand but I would be happy to try and find one for you. Once I have found suitable suppliers, I will PM them to you asap :) I’m not really sure about the captured market for cloth diapers in Asia, but I have found a number of sellers in Asia selling cloth diapers. I for one used them when my daughters came home from the hospital. Sorry but I’m not sure if we do have any information on how to break into or enlarge any existing markets for this product or other products. But this type of information if available will be quite helpful. @Maureen Puddle: PM sent! Kindly check your inbox. Sorry but currently the SaleHoo Research Lab only uses data from so at this stage this is solely based on the US market. @Mafuzur, @homeatlastgirl, @hjr: PM sent! Kindly check your inbox.

Marife Reyes on 22:11 17 Oct
Hi Richelle, I'm trying to find the best supplier of baby apparels, supplies (like cloth diapers), shoes and bags in DHGate but could not actually find a 1. Legit, 2. With a very attractive free shipping (with less waiting period), and 3. since I am new in the business, I am looking for a supplier who can supply me somewhat wholesale (but not in big quantity yet) like 5-10 pcs. should be okay. I am actually located in Qatar that is why shipping is really a big factor for me. I hope some other members could suggest or tell me their experience with DHGate esp. with Baby items. Thanks.
Richelle Monfort on 6:03 19 Oct
