Top 5 Products by Revenue - What are our best sellers?

However, most often 5 Products won't cover 80% of your total revenue, but they will help aid you in your marketing choices moving forward. An example could be when launching new types of Google Adwords Campaigns (ex. Google Shopping, Showcase Ads, Product Listing Ads) these top products are what you should focus on first as the demand has already begun to generate for them. Another example is if you are one of the many Shopify Plus Stores opening Amazon Stores and are looking to test the waters with a few products. These top 5 products should be first in line to upload and focus on getting sales.
