Digital Thermometer - Monday Market of the Week

Digital thermometers are a household essential! They are often the first point of call when a family member gets sick and needs their temperature taken. 

So what does our very own SaleHoo Research Lab have to say about digital thermometers?

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

The sell-through rate of a digital thermometer is 52.19% which meets our target of a 50% sell through rate. Let's keep looking! 

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

The median end price might seem low compared to some other products we have featured, but don‘t be put off as these can be sourced cheaply! Many successful online sellers make a great living from selling high volumes of cheaper items.

Also, keep in mind that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous because it is for all listings of digital thermometers. This can include bulk listings that sell two or more units of digital thermometers in a single listing. Plus you have to consider that there are various types of digital thermometers. 

You can actually refer to our lab’s snapshot feature which provides us the average price for digital thermometers on eBay. Referring to the screen shot below you can see that the figures look more encouraging!

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

There are 41,114 bids for 10,295 listings of digital thermometers! Can you see the potential market for this niche? It's hard to argue with the numbers!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

If you are still unsure about this week’s niche, the figures in the table above might help convince you a bit more. Notice the highest recorded revenue for the month of November 2012 is $24,521.06. This should convince you that we have indeed found a profitable niche!

Going beyond eBay: How popular is a digital thermometer online?

To help us check if digital thermometers are viable outside eBay, I did some quick keyword research using our very free SEO software, Traffic Travis. You can download your own Traffic Travis software by visiting

What do these numbers mean?

With the eradication of mercury thermometers, digital thermometers have a steady demand. Based on our quick keyword research there are at least 14,800 searches globally and 4,400 in the US alone. So if you’re searching for traffic to direct to your online store and eBay listings this is definitely a great potential to tap into!
