Amazon.com.au has revealed the best-selling products since launching its retail offering one week ago in Australia.

Eight of the top ten products were in the tech category.

The top four best-selling items are video games with FIFA 18 PS4 topping the list, closely followed by CALL OF DUTY: WW2 PS4.

The popular non-tech items to make it to the top ten are books, with Australian author Scott Pape’s The Barefoot Investor coming in at number seven and Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients – Quick & Easy Food ranking as the eighth best-selling product in Australia.

Two of the best-selling products on the list are Star Wars related — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story CD and the Star Wars Death Star 3D LED Lamp.

The US-based retail giant Amazon launched in Australia on December 5 its full retail offering, with hundreds of thousands of discounted goods and one-day delivery.

The first purchase made on Amazon.com.au was L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation.

The top ten selling items on Amazon Australia in the last week:

“In the run up to Christmas it is not surprising to see video games featuring prominently in the top ten,” says Rocco Braeuniger, Country Manager of Amazon Australia.

“Outside of the top ten, Australians have been buying everything from daily essentials, including nappies and socks, to bigger purchases such as wearable tech and cameras.”

New South Wales is the state to have made the most purchases with the Kindle Paperwhite being its most popular product.
