Otter Box - Monday Market of the Week

Looking for a hot niche? The Otter Box could be just what you need. They provide the protection you need for your everyday gadgets, and The Otter Box has gained popularity with its ability to provide adequate protection against scratches, dust, bumps and falls keeping your phones and cameras safe.

Using our very own SaleHoo Research Lab we checked out just how profitable Otter Boxes are to sell online. 

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

For the month of June the Otter Box has a sell-through rate of 54.07%. Remember that one key indicator of a promising niche is its sell-through rate. It is best to invest in products with a sell-through rate above 50%.

Median End Price: Is there enough room for profit?

Otter Boxes had a median end price of $22.02 for the month of June. Keep in mind that the median end price on eBay can be ambiguous: The median end price is for all listings of Otter Box products which can include bulk listings that sell two or more Otter Box products in a single listing. This can skew data. 

Just how much are buyers paying for an Otter Box? The Research Lab’s snapshot helps us get a closer estimate of the average price as well as the average Buy It Now price. The snapshot below shows that the average price of an Otter Box is $25.00 while the average Buy It Now price is $29.00.

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

Many buyers are certainly in the market for their own Otter Box with 34,546 bids in one month alone! We have definitely found a product with a great market! With only 7,884 listings by 4,290 sellers, the total number of bids is more than 4 times that of what the market has to offer, so there is a lot of demand for this product. 

Now would definitely be a good time to start listing your own Otter Box products!

Data Trends: Are sellers hitting their target?

Check out the highest recorded revenue for the month of June, $20,346.75! Even the lowest recorded revenue is not low at all at $11,257.14

There is certainly money to be made selling Otter Box products.

Going beyond eBay: How popular is an Otter Box online?

With daily eBay sales not lower than $10,000, you can be fairly confident that Otter Box products are just as popular online! One quick way to know for sure is to use our very own free SEO software, Traffic Travis. Download your own copy for free, just visit www.traffictravis.com.

What do these numbers mean?

There are currently 74,000 searches globally and 60,500 searches in the US for Otter Box! It would certainly be a waste if you can’t divert at least a few thousand potential customers to your online store and/or eBay listings so be sure to optimize your listings with the correct keywords.

At the price I see here for otterbox you are unlikely to achieve a good margin if you are buying from the second link. If you have a total aversion to selling copy then you are unlikely to be able to purchase genuine otterbox to be competitive in this market.. With many of the products being $60 USD then shipping I consider you will need to be buying large quantities to be making any sort of niche at all Ali

Your research is all for US market. For people like myself who live outside of US, how does that help? Do you have tools to do research in the local market? And/or guide on how to approach non-US markets?

@Orient_Express: Hello Ali, Thanks for pointing that out :) But you must remember that the key to achieving profitable prices is buying in bulk which is what wholesale is all about. So the higher your order volume the lower your per unit price will drop. The second ink is actually the manufacturer themselves so if you can get into an agreement with them they would be your best source for OtterBox cases. @PG: Sorry but at this time our Research Lab only searches through eBay.com (US site) and we do not have other tools to help you search through your local market. But please feel free to add your location request and vote on this request - http://feedback.salehoo.com/forums/130697-salehoo-research-labs/suggestions/2662556-include-other-international-sites-for-research-lab We do have various [url=http://www.salehoo.com/education/ebay-selling/]free guides[/url] to help you find what to sell on eBay.
