Online business has grown exponentially during the last decade, and the industries are focusing on online business more than before. However, just setting up an online store and starting selling might not work. Different machine learning and data mining techniques are needed to know the users' preferences and know what would be best for business. According to the decision-making needs of online product sales, combined with the influencing factors of online product sales in various industries

In the research process, the full connection model is compared with the training results of CNN, which proves the accuracy and generalization ability of CNN model. By selecting the non-deep learning model as the comparison baseline, the performance advantages of CNN model under different categories of products are proved. In addition, the experiment concludes that the unsupervised pretrained CNN model is more effective and adaptable in sales forecasting.
