Default Can't be the master in 2 categories?

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that if you sell really well in one category, then your other categories are just so so?

I have noticed this for a long time now. It's like I am killing it in category A, but category B and category C are just eeking by. Listings are set up the same way, free shipping, 14 day return, and all that is the same.

Anyhow, looking for anyone else with similar experiences and opinions?

Hmm really depends on your exposure and rank...I have had success in multiple categories for same products - niche-specific

I,don't see any correlation , if u have two good products totally diff categories.,as long as DSRs and feedback are great for both and you have a competitive price both should be selling well

With the comments yall made, I have re-thought my situation. One item is not as saturated as the other with similar things. There is not as much to sift through as the other. And I bet that can make a huge difference.

Then I guess re-think the plan for your other categories.

Is there a lot of disparity?
