BuzzSumo is an online tool that analyses the top shared content on social channels.

Type the product or keyword and a search displays the most trending content for your search term. If the content or product pages have thousands of shares, then it indicates that the product is trending.

4. AliExpress

Being a consumer-focused wholesale marketplace from Alibaba, this is the go-to site for almost all the ecommerce sellers.

Find trending products to sell through its ‘Weekly Best Sellers.’ It offers products across a range of categories like fashion, electronics and more.
