Nintendo DS Games - Monday Market of the Week

Electronic products are one of the more popular products sellers wants to sell. Electronic gadgets are a favourite niche among sellers but it’s a common notion that the competition among electronic sellers is quite stiff, and that good profits can be hard to come by. So rather than battling with high competition, why not sell an electronic accessory instead? 

Using SaleHoo’s Research Lab I was able to narrow down my search and discovered a really promising accessory - Nintendo DS games.

Let’s investigate further and see if we have indeed found a good niche!

Sell-through Rate: Will you make enough sales?

One of the most important numbers to check before considering any product is the sell through rate. A product with a sell through of 50% or more is worth a closer look.

Nintendo DS games have a 66.83% sell through rate so we definitely found ourselves a good niche.

Median End Price: Do the number work?

The price of Nintendo DS games may vary depending on the release date but the most affordable ones I saw were being sold by wholesalers at $5 each making the median end price of $44.86 very profitable.

Total Listings, Total Bids and Total Sellers: Scoping out the competition

So far we've checked our chances of successfully selling Nintendo DS games, now it’s time to take a closer look at the actual market for this product.

Currently there are 5,568 live listings made by 4,050 sellers on eBay. The number seems big but if you check the total bids being made by potential buyers you’ll easily be awed! As of October there were 30,400 bids made on only 5,568 listings. This means that the supply and demand for this product is very favorable for eBay sellers!

Data Trends: What are other sellers earning?

So just how well are Nintendo DS games sellers doing?

Using our Research Lab you can easily see the sales trend for the games. You can check the number items sold, total revenue and average revenue.  This gives you a quick view of the market you are about to invest in.

Based on the graph below you can easily see that sellers are definitely making money selling Nintendo DS games, with the highest total revenue of $8,915.44 and the lowest total revenue of $4,039.56 which is still relatively high!

Going beyond eBay: Are web users searching Google for Nintendo DS games

With a product as promising as this we shouldn’t limit our research just to eBay.  Instead, let’s check just how many people are in search for Nintendo DS games worldwide.  A tool that’s really easy to use for keyword research is Traffic Travis. You can download your free SEO software by visiting

Traffic Travis lets you check how popular Nintendo DS games are in search engines like Google and gives you an approximate idea of the potential traffic you can direct to your online store or eBay listings.

What do these numbers mean?

For the month of October there were at least 49,500 searches worldwide for Nintendo DS games on Google and 18,100 searches were made within the US alone.

To illustrate further the importance of using the correct set of keywords, I included the keyword Nintendo games which has roughly half the search counts as Nintendo DS games.  So if you are selling Nintendo DS games be sure to list them as ‘Nintendo DS games’.
