I think a much more interesting question would be of the 323,187,951 products that are listed for sale on Amazon, how many of those are actually sold by Amazon vs. their third-party sellers? Somehow I doubt you’d be able to get a straight answer from Amazon, but my guess is that the majority of products ordered through Amazon are actually sold by the third-party merchants and not Amazon itself.

The numbers presented don’t give the whole picture. The total doesn’t match the sum for the categories presented. So there should be 80,145,837 SKUs in “other”

Do you have the full break down for all categories, the ones that would make up that “other”?

    Hi Tim,
    These numbers are fluid and change every second but we will get more details on the “other” category on the next refresh.
    Thanks
