    Cool Turnover made by a category

    Hello,

    Can you tell me if the following sentence is correct please? (we sell different types of products:carseats, travel cots etc.)

    "The turnover made by the carseat category is very big".

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Re: Turnover made by a category

    'Car seats' has to be written as two words. 'Category' is not a suitable word here.

    I'd say 'We have a very big turnover from car seats' or more simply 'We sell a lot of car seats'.

    Re: Turnover made by a category

    In the US, we'd say "of" or "in": We have a big turnover OF car seats.

    I'd say: We have a big car seat turnover.
