How many for you?

I'm curious how many different products you offer and how many orders you get per day. I'd like to learn more about how those two things relate. This will surely vary widely, so feel free to include the average order size, average markup, and any other pieces of info you think are valid.

I offer about 320 products and I get about 3 orders/day on average. The average size of the order is about $35 and the average markup is about cost*3.

I offer 8 products for sale and sell about 10 per day.

In theory more items = more SERP results = more sales.

Hmmm...I've never really thought about this before, but we offer around 20,000 products but only have about 250 orders per day. That's only a fraction over 1% of our line-items being sold in a given day.

bghead8che,

Not too shabby. I'm curious what kind of stuff you sell. Do you have a physical inventory that you ship to the customer?

BradleyT,

I'm hoping for the same thing. How long after you add a product to your site that is targeting a competitive keyphrase do you find yourself ranked well for it?

arieng,

Very interesting. That's right around the 1% I'm doing. Would you say you're selling "normal" stuff? I would. Does anyone else find themself in the 1% zone?

I offer approximately 450 products - average 12 orders per day with an average order size of $59. One order may contain anywhere from one product to 30 or so. It really varies.

Hi Tonearm,

Yeah, we carry a relatively "normal" inventory with equal mixture of B2B & B2C. This discussion has started me thinking, is there an optimum range? Could this number be used as in indicator of whether or not to expand/contract the items you sell?
