The World’s Top eBay Sellers

Worlds Top eBay Sellers 2015

UPDATED: This post has been updated in June 2015 with the latest eBay data. Following the popularity of the country lists we included in The World’s Top Amazon Marketplace Sellers, we’ve also added lists of the top eBay sellers located in the US, UK, China/Hong Kong, Germany and Australia.

For this post I’ve pulled together a big list – a very big list – of the top 1,000 eBay sellers worldwide. If you want to get straight to the data, here’s a jump down to the full list. An extract of the top ten is right here.

You can see much more data in the full list.

What makes these sellers the “top” sellers? Well, they have gained the most positive feedback in the last 6 months, and they are all Premium Store owners (or the international equivalent such as Featured Shops in the UK). Feedback volume is a useful approximation to selling volume.

Focusing on the last six months helps show who the biggest sellers are right now – it excludes those who are no longer trading. I don’t want this to be an illustration of how many eBay sellers have given up or gone out of business – it’s an unfortunate fact of life that businesses fail, and online retail is one of the toughest industries.

Below, I’ve drawn some insights from the data. I’d love to hear your own observations in the comments at the end.

Cross Border Trade

Over 35% of the top 1,000 eBay sellers are serious cross-border traders – they are based in one country, and have a Premium (or Featured) eBay Store in another. That’s up from 31% in 2014.

Of those international eBay traders, 89% are based in China or Hong Kong – 315 sellers in total, up from 281 in 2014. To put it another way, 34 of the new sellers on the list are Chinese exporters – which accounts for most of the increase in cross-border trade overall.

Over half of all cross-border traders are Chinese sellers exporting direct to the US. In fact, 18% of all the top 1,000 eBay sellers are based in China with eBay Stores in the USA. That’s the same as in 2014.

A further 135 sellers –14.6% – are based in China or Hong Kong and export to other countries in the West. That’s up from 102 in 2014. So most of the increase in cross-border trade is businesses from China and Hong Kong selling to countries other than the US, particularly the UK where the increase is from 33 to 59 sellers.

In summary, nearly 30% of the top 1,000 eBay sellers are Chinese traders selling to the US, Europe and Australia – up from 25% in 2014.

eBay Cross Border Trade from China

Australia is still an interesting case. It has a third of the population of the UK, but exactly as many of the top Chinese eBay sellers have stores in Australia as in the UK. It was a different story in 2014, when there were only 33 China-to-UK sellers on the list.

Proximity is sure to play a part in that – China is a lot closer to Australia than the UK. And eBay is generally doing very well in Australia, not least because Amazon have not yet begun selling physical goods there, only Kindle books.

Cross-border trade is not quite completely dominated by China. One international European seller stands out in the top 100: Belgian philatelist matthijs_philatelie at #50 sells high volumes of stamps to the US. And Canadian seller primechoiceautoparts at #67 also does most of their business with the US.

Of course, these are not the only international sellers, just those with Premium/Featured eBay Stores outside their home country – they primarily sell overseas, it appears. Huge numbers of eBay sellers trade across borders, but most will still make the majority of their sales in their home country.

Top Countries

These are the countries with the most sellers in the top 1,000.

# Country Sellers Feedback (1)
1 China 291 13,382
2 UK 245 12,668
3 US 221 12,011
4 Germany 155 8,051
5 Hong Kong 24 898

7 Singapore 9 438
8 Italy 6 194
9 Malaysia 4 197
10 Canada 3 156

1 – The sum of feedback (in thousands) received in the last six months

The UK has the top three eBay sellers worldwide, but has swapped positions with China for the most sellers on the list overall. In 2014, the UK topped the list with 292 sellers, while China was in second place with 250. Singapore has jumped from having one seller on the list in 2014, to nine sellers this year.

The US is in the third spot, after the UK and China, for total sellers in the top 1,000. But there’s little between the top three for the total feedback generated in the last six months.

Top Categories

These are the categories which the top 1,000 sellers list in the most.

# Category Sellers
1 Clothing, Shoes & Accessories 182
2 Home & Garden 148
3 Phones & Accessories 135
4 Jewelry & Watches 100
5 Auto Parts 78
6 Computers 59

10 Toys & Hobbies 21
11 Electronics 19
12 Music 19
13 Sporting Goods 19
14 Collectibles 18
15 Health & Beauty 16

eBay is best known now for consumer goods, so it’s not surprising to see phone accessories, clothing, home wares and jewellery featuring at the top. It’s more unexpected that 5% of high-volume sellers target the Business & Industrial category, with 56 sellers in the top 1,000.

The big change from 2014 is the increase of Clothing, Shoes & Accessories sellers from 138 to 182, and an almost matching decrease in Phones & Accessories sellers from 173 to 135. Home & Garden has gained significantly too, from 132 to 148 sellers.

There are also strong showings from eBay’s past as a venue for hobbyists and collectors: Crafts are targeted by 37 sellers and Collectibles by 18. Both are slightly increased from 2014 (by 3 and 2 sellers respectively). Even the specialist Coins & Paper Money category still has seven of the top 1,000 sellers.

Historical Top Seller Lists

I’d like to tip my virtual hat to those who have published top seller lists in the past. I was inspired by these resources to produce an up-to-date version, and they remain valuable for those who want a glimpse into the past.

About the Data

Web Retailer commissioned research to collect this data in February 2014 and May 2015, from eBay’s websites in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Spain, France, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Poland, Singapore, the UK and the US.

Sellers with Premium Stores in the US (Featured Shops in the UK) Anchor Stores/Shops, and equivalents on other eBay sites are included. It’s possible that some high-volume sellers are not included, if they were omitted from the eBay store directory at the time of the research.

The list is ordered by positive feedback in the last six months. Feedback is an indicator of sales volume, but not revenue. Not all buyers leave feedback, so the number of units sold will be higher than the volume of feedback received. Reports from Tamebay and EcommerceBytes suggest the typical proportion of buyers leaving feedback is between 40% and 70%, with a bias towards the lower end of that scale.

If you have any questions just let me know in the comments below!

67 comments on “The World’s Top eBay Sellers

  1. You didn’t say but I assume this list was by revenue. One thing that I noticed is that there is a lot of media sellers in this list: books, video games, music, and DVDs. One wonders how sustainable this business is or whether they are just serving as liquidators for other companies.

    I see you make note of sellers having a premium store outside of their home country. I have never considered this myself. What advantage would it be? I sell in UK, OZ, and other english speaking countries by just extending my listings.

    1. Hi Jack, actually the list is by feedback in the last six months – so an approximation of sales volume rather than revenue. I’ll see if I can make that clearer.

      It would be interesting to dig further into the business models in use. I was a little surprised by the variety, and yes media does figure prominently. Maybe it’s an indication of the low margins in media, and therefore the need for very high volumes?

      I don’t think there’s a benefit of using a non-home eBay site to make your store premium/featured (it will appear in that country’s premium stores directory, but I doubt that has much value). I’m using it to indicate that a seller is almost entirely focused on selling to a country other than their own, if that makes sense.

  2. For media you would definitely need volume. I was grocery shopping at my local wal-mart today and was amazed at the amount of media product in bins at insanely low prices. Perhaps I am just ahead of the curve but I haven’t paid for real media (non-downloadable) in a couple of years so selling it seems a bit dated.

  3. Wonder what the ASP is for these sellers and what return rate or non payment rate might be for them.
    Non payment rate and return rate is significant in many categories and may not be taken into account in this if its mostly feedback related.

  4. Andy yes as a separate list as that would help us lesser mortals to gauge whether or not anchor shops are worth the extra bucks, since we signed up for an anchor shop we haven’t noticed any increase of sales and considering we have gone from 1000 items to nearly 2500 listings now.
    Cheers Dave

    1. I made my decision for an Anchor shop (yes, I got one) because I evaluated the number of free listings versus what i would pay for listing fees. My total fees are much less. This is in the US, your mileage may vary elsewhere. Easy enough to do the math based on your local marketplace’s rule.

  5. Hi Andy, interesting post! I was just wondering, what do you mean by they are based in ine country but “have a featured store” (or anchor) in another? Do you mean their store comes up on the list for featured stores in that other country, eg in the US for a seller based in china, say?
    And, they are still shipping from overseas to the customer, correct? Just wanted to make sure I wasn’t muddling it or missing something. Thanks again :)

    1. Thanks Julia! Yes, that’s exactly it. They have upgraded their store to premium/featured/anchor using the eBay site in another country. I didn’t find any stores that were on the featured list on more than one eBay site, by the way, so I think that’s probably not possible to do. In most cases they will be shipping direct from overseas, yes. They could choose to hold stock locally to their buyers, but most will ship direct.

  6. I was amazed to find such a comprehensive list, but I was totally stoked to find us on this list. I’m so proud of our team for making this achievement in under 16 months and I must give a big thankyou to you Andy for giving us a benchmark to work towards.

  7. Of course this has nothing to do with sales volume. How about you gather for us a list of top sellers by sales volumes?

    1. Do you mean sales revenue? I think feedback actually correlates well with sales volume (number of units sold). I don’t have a data source for revenue, but you could use Terapeak to research specific sellers.

  8. Hi Andy, I was looking at the Google drive document you shared at the end of the article. You have a column that shows “Store Size.” What exactly does that number represent?

    1. Hi Samantha, actually I intended to remove that column and have done so now! It’s the number of “matching items” shown in eBay’s Premium Stores directory. The number is really unreliable – a store with 6 “matching items” in the stores directory could have 440 or 784 (or any other number!) results when you go to their store. Maybe there is some logic to it, but I haven’t been able to figure it out.

  9. Awesome collection of data Andy, my store just missed the list (19,500 in the past 6 months). Although revenue is a hard metric to gather data on, I think you would find it to be all over the board with with some correlation to category. For example a seller that specializes in cell phone cases maybe have an average purchase price of $5.00 while an auto parts seller like myself has an average purchase price of around $55.00. even if that store is processing 2 or 3 more transactions than I am, my GSV is many times greater. We would all apprecieate it if eBay would pubically share this data, not a chance that will happen tho…. eaither way, thanks for putting this together.

    1. Thanks Chris!

      Thinking aloud here… with an average sale price per category and % of sales which get feedback I could actually estimate GSV for these sellers. It’s not something I will attempt any time soon though!

      1. I think that would get you closer but with some outliers in the data. For example: a seller that sells iphones vs. one that sells iphone accessories. Same top level category with much different average sale price. Pulling terapeak data on every seller would really be the best way estimate this variable using a sample size of a 30 day window or something to find an average store transaction price. The question then boils down to… who is more of a top eBay seller? The store that sells 100 cars a month or 10,000 sets of brake pads?

  10. Hi Andy, I am umo88 on eBay and I believe I should be on this list. In 2014 we will do 50,000, $25 transactions for about 1.25 million in business. Check us out we have an amazing model. If you are interested in a unique model we are it!

    1. I must agree with Scott, I am an electronic component re-seller and buy just about all of my items from umo88 and I do believe most electronic component re-sellers are right in there with me. You are by far the #1 electronic component seller on eBay with the best prices by far!

  11. Hi Andy, thanks for the post. Do you have any material that would help me start selling on Amazon as a self fulfill merchant?
    I’ve tried Ebay using DSD only to have my account permanently shut down by Ebay.
    I’m looking for something that really works and so i’m reaching out to you
    Thanks for everything Andy

  12. Sorry to be so late to the comment party.

    Will you be putting together an updated version of this list? If you did, you’d be able to add a column for “movement since the last list”

    Is there a way you can program a script to generate this on demand?

    Thanks again, this list is great.

    1. Hi Dan, and congratulations on being #390!

      Yes I’ll probably update it around at the same time next year, and include a column for movement/new entries.

      It’s not a straightforward job extracting the data and it takes a long time to run, so there are no plans to provide a script.

    1. Hi Thomas, that seller has 1,786 positive feedback in the last 6 months. Number 1,000 on the list dynamicsounds00 has over 23,000 (at the time of the research, it’s now higher).

  13. Hi,
    I am just curious about how you rank top eBay sellers, based on transactions, feedbacks, or money amount. Due to Universal Postal Union’s regulation, Chinese sellers were given a lot of advantages due to a much low shipping cost, especially for low weight items. Also, China is a world factory. But most of Chinese sellers sell light weight items or cheap items($0.01+free shipping). If your ranking is based on the number of transactions or positive feedbacks, they will surely be listed on the top.

    Also , a lot of US based eBay sellers have warehouses in China, therefore they are not exclusively US sellers.

  14. Hi, am curious about where do we rank, our ebay user ID is sarafankit2009, we have 18991 feedbacks in last 6 months and 31960 over the last 12 months, with an anchor store on ebay USA

    Thanks.

  15. Awesome list, have you ever thought to break it down to the same countries that Amazon is at, just like your Amazon list?

  16. This is awesome! How did you compile this list? Did you hire people to manually enter all the data? Is there a tool where I can submit a query for ebay sellers and it will come back with a list? Thanks!

  17. Hi: Just came across this & find it very interesting & informative. I did a really quick run through & what jumped out at me is that there are only 42+/- out of 1000 with 100% feedback, a LOT between 99-99.9% with many just barely over 99%, and tons between 98-99%, quite a few just barely over 98%.
    An awful lot of us small sellers maintain our 100% positive feedbacks because we are so customer service oriented. The big guys must value quantity over quality in a lot of cases.
    I am looking forward to the next version. Could this be announced in the monthly newsletter?
    Thanks. Nancy

    1. Thank you Nancy. That’s an interesting analysis. Perhaps the big sellers lack the personal touch to push their feedback score higher. And while a 100% score is something to be proud of, I don’t think it makes a big difference either to buyers or eBay’s algorithms. So the big sellers probably don’t think it’s worth the extra effort.

      We’re working on updating the list now and it will be announced in a couple of weeks.

  18. Hello Andy,

    Great info. Thanks for sharing. Is it still possible to view the date via shared google drive?

    Klam

    1. Hi Klam, glad you like it. We’re not planning to share on Google Docs this time but if you drop me a line and let me know what you plan to do with it we’ll see what we can do.

    1. Yes, it does appear they should be listed as they had 67,023 feedback in the last 6 months. If they haven’t changed their user ID, then there was probably a bug of some sort meaning they weren’t listed in the eBay seller directory at the time of the research.
