Why sell PS5 video games?
To help us check the market for a niche, we like to turn to our very own Market Research Lab. Let's take a look at why selling PS5 video games is not only a good idea but a highly profitable one!
High sell rate
PS5 video games are selling like hot potatoes, with a success rate between 94% and 100% for the titles in the lab! It's hard to come by products that move this well, so when you find them, it's definitely worth a look. Running an eCommerce business is not always easy and will oftentimes prove to be a bigger challenge than expected — but if you look for items with a high sell rate, you are more likely to succeed.
Solid average selling price
Ideally, your target profit margin is at the very least between 5%-10% per item, after any selling and transaction fees. Any lower and there would be no money to be made! This is why a solid average selling price is crucial. Just make sure you can find the products at a price well below market value! Remember that the best way for you to maximize your profits is by buying your stock in bulk. The higher your order volume, the lower your unit price will be. Go for wholesale if you have the money, rather than dropshipping individual titles.
Another key factor is market competition: What good is a product with a high sell rate and a solid average price if the market is too saturated for you to make any sales? Always go for products with low competition — that way you'll have a relatively easier time making sales and staying competitive in your chosen marketplace.
You have to be able to direct traffic to your store and/or listings to make sales. The key to achieving this is the keywords you are using. If buyers can't find your product in the search engines, they can't buy it, and search engines (even eBay and Amazon's) rely on keywords to deliver the best results. To help us find the right keywords, we turn to the AffiloTools Keyword Research tool. Below are some of the top-ranking keywords for PS5 video games.
Look at those search volumes: 49,500 local searches for "new PS5 games," followed closely by "PlayStation 4 games" at 33,100 local searches. Just imagine if you could attract even a fourth of that traffic — that could easily translate to a lot of dollar signs!
You can sell these games as stand-alone items or bundled together. You can even offer promos such as "buy 5, get 1 free." The best approach with this tactic is to offer a game that isn't selling well as your freebie, to help clear out some storage space (if you are buying in bulk and storing them in your garage or home).
