Amazon sells about 368,876,590 products as of Dec 1, 2016
The total number of products sold by Amazon is 368 million, but when you add up the product totals in various categories and subcategories the total ends up being 411,548,523 – almost 42.1 million more products than the number of products they sell.
We believe that this is because many products show up multiple categories. An example is Cell Phones & Accessories category and Electronics > Cell Phones and Accessories. These are almost the same products.
