The 8 Best Products to Sell Online in June 2023
June is a month of transition. The seasons move from spring to summer, and students go from days spent in school to summer vacation. But do the best products to sell online change, too?
To help answer that question, we examined the shopping trends of DealNews readers in June 2022 to see which items shoppers were drawn to most. In this guide, we go over these products to determine the best things to sell online in June 2023. You'll also learn about the big sales opportunities during the month and the merchandise you may want to list later instead.
The 8 Best Products to Sell Online in June 2023
Take a look at our infographic to see five of the best things to sell online in June. Then read about all the categories our readers gravitated toward in June 2022.
Tools and Home Improvement Supplies
Tools and home improvement products seem to have a reserved spot on our monthly "what to sell online" guides. June should be yet another excellent month to list items in this category, particularly those related to lighting. In June 2022, our readers gravitated toward rechargeable LED headlamps, 2-packs of outdoor solar spotlights, and 2-packs of LED garage ceiling lights.
Here's a rundown of other tools and home improvement items to consider listing in June:
- 3' and 6' 3-outlet extension cords
- Battery-powered smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
- 8' expandable drain pipes
- 11-ounce cans of silicone lubricant
- Adjustable file handles
- Cordless electric scissors
- 6-wheel folding hand trucks
Clothes, Shoes, and Accessories
It's always important to keep seasonal trends in mind when you're planning to sell clothes online. For example, June is probably not a good month to stock a ton of wool sweaters, but you may do well listing items like T-shirts. In June 2022, our readers gravitated toward 4-packs of men's short-sleeve T-shirts in particular. Based on other trends from last year, additional items to think about selling in June are men's clothes in general, black leather dress belts with ratchet closures, and hardside expandable luggage.
Lawn and Patio Products
Items for outdoor spaces tend to rise in popularity among our readers in spring, and continue to resonate during the summer. So what's worth selling in June, specifically? Given what our readers were drawn to in June 2022, products to look into include universal propane tank gauges, gas-powered generators, yard dump carts, and 80-volt outdoor tools.
Certain insects are also a concern during the summer, so you may have good luck with pest-killing products for lawns, outdoor ant bait stakes, and mosquito repellent, too. Interest in the search term "insect control" has peaked in May or June over the past five years, according to Google Trends, making this the time of year people are looking for pest-control solutions.
Computers could be a winning bet if you decide to sell electronics online in June. Last June, trending products among our readers included refurbished Apple 15" laptops, Lenovo 12.3" 2-in-1 laptops, and ABS gaming desktops with NVIDIA video cards. If you're wanting other ideas, know that Microsoft tablets, desktop charging stations with outlets and USB ports, and WiFi security cameras were also popular among DealNews readers in June 2022.
The Rest of the Best
What other items should you sell online in June 2023? Here are some additional products that were popular with DealNews readers a year ago:
- Kitchen items, including vegetable peeler sets, 5.5" egg and omelet pans, chef's knives, kitchen shears with covers, and cocktail shaker sets
- Health-related products, such as massage guns, travel-sized pill cutters, and packs of disposable face masks
- Household products like 20-count packs of AAA batteries, 2-packs of dryer balls, multisurface outdoor cleaners, shower door cleaners, and washing machine cleaning tablets
- Sports and outdoor items, including 100' of paracord, 5-pound Olympic plates, electric bikes, tent fan lanterns for camping, and beach/picnic blankets
What Are the Big Sales Opportunities in June?
It's safe to say that Father's Day is the main shopping-related holiday in June, and this year it's on June 18. Know that we often see sales for the holiday begin in May, though, so if you haven't figured out what discount, coupon, and/or ad campaign you might want to do for Father's Day this year, it's time to start making plans.
While tools are a traditional Father's Day gift, promotions for the holiday can revolve around tech products, clothing, watches, and other items. Different dads have different interests, after all! Greeting cards and clothing may deserve an especially close look. According to a National Retail Federation survey, these were the top two gift categories for Father's Day 2022.
Memorial Day and the 4th of July
Yes, we know that Memorial Day is in May. But last year we saw some popular Memorial Day sales extend into early June. (Memorial Day 2022 was May 30, by the way, and this year it's May 29.) So don't feel like you have to cut off your promotions as soon as the holiday is over. Our readers gravitated toward early June Memorial Day sales offering items like furniture, appliances, and tools.
Think ahead this month to Independence Day, as well. Although the holiday falls on July 4, we often see sales for it begin by mid-June, so you can always get an early start. Major categories in 4th of July promotions tend to include electronics, clothing, and outdoor gear.
What NOT to Sell Online in June 2023
|Item||When to Sell||Why?|
|Smart Devices||July||Smart devices may not be bad products to sell before July gets here, but shoppers could have much more interest that month, especially if July is when Amazon Prime Day happens. In July 2022, items that resonated with readers included smart lightbulbs, speakers, displays, indoor security cameras, and robots for kids.|
|Grocery Items||August||Grocery items seemed to be more popular with DealNews readers last August than they were in June 2022. Items that could be good contenders include cans of peach nectar, flavored ramen noodles, raw wildflower honey, and 15-pound bags of basmati rice.|
|Personal Care Products||August||If last year is any indication, people may be gravitating more toward personal care items come August. Think about listing continuous spray bottles, oatmeal and almond bath bars, nail clipper sets, and cordless hair clippers then.|
