However, aside from the regular Subscribe and Save or Amazon’s Choice items, Amazon offers some extremely exclusive and expensive items. In this article, we invite you to discover the most expensive things on Amazon, along with other big-ticket items from the world’s largest online retailer.

Onward and upward go the prices of the most expensive Amazon items. For a limited time, you can own a replica of the 1815 painting Retrato de Rafael Esteve created by the Spanish painter Francisco José de Goya. The original is currently located in the Valencia Museum of Fine Arts, Valencia, Spain. However, the $4,000,000 piece fails to live up to expectations. One Amazon buyer suggests that the painting featured a disappointing lack of “ghostly apparitions.”

1. The Way, Gafur Timeryanov

Purportedly the Last Painting of the Artist
"The Way" by Bashkir Artist-Expressionist Gafur Timeryanov
$32,000,000.00

I could only find three Amazon listings for over one million, but this one blows the other two away. With no biography of Gafur Timeryanov, the history of The Way lies shrouded in mystery. It’s what makes this piece worth $32,000,000. 

If that’s too much for your budget, don’t worry — Amazon offers monthly financing at 2.66 million. Go ahead, put this painting in your cart, and experience what it feels like to sit on the brink of bankruptcy with just one click.

Selling the Most Expensive Things on Amazon

If you have a million bucks, is Amazon the place to spend it? This is a good question, but it’s clear that the vendors we’ve shared are confident that they can successfully sell their items.

Amazon’s move to let vendors sell their specialist items through this popular platform, taking advantage of the impressive reach of its e-commerce storefront, was a business masterstroke. Specialist retailers are now helping their premium products find new customers by combining valuable niche items with the easy order fulfillment of Amazon.

Many of these items are investments, and may not have been purchased in person anyway. Amazon may also be the place to transact such large purchases because of its legendary A-to-Z Guarantee, which offers protections that a regular store or dealer may not be able to provide.

Rounding Up

Amazon’s seemingly endless inventory of items never fails to impress, and these expensive rare, and unique items demonstrate that you can buy just about anything online!

These intriguing things on Amazon show that value is very much in the eye of the beholder and it is highly likely that a few of these extremely expensive items will soon find a buyer.
