Whitney Houston death boosts album sales on Amazon and eBay

No primary category set

Whitney Houston fans are expressing their grief at her death by snapping up her music on eBay and Amazon. No doubt there are a few sellers out there too who’s mourning is somewhat tempered by shifting a few albums in their back catalogue.

Amazon’s top music rankings have been dominated today with her music with eight out of the top 10 Best Sellers in Music based on Amazon customer purchases being Whitney albums.

It’s somehow a shame that the death of a superstar instantly makes them more profitable then when they were still alive, but at the end of the day if you’ve got some Whitney memorabilia hanging around that you want to sell there’ll never be a better time than now. Sales on eBay also appear to be pretty brisk, but on both eBay and Amazon interest in Whitney is stronger in the US than the UK, so list your items on Amazon.com and eBay.com instead of European sites.

  1. Why have ebay not removed the duplicate listings for the same domain name?

    Surely a domain can only be registered to one owner?

    Some of the listings may be fraudulant with domains not genuinely owned by the seller.
