    Ranking an inner page takes the same effort you make to rank the homepage. It'll be easier to rank if the inner page is filled with large SEO optimized content which seems to be not in your case as you're using it to list out your products. Checkout the reviews for any product on toptenreviews.com. They're nailing it by posting detailed unique review article for each product per page and that's how eCommerce giant Amazon dominates SERPs. And as for your question, ranking the inner page will be easier if you built some authority to your homepage aka root domain and any inner pages can then be ranked easily.

    In my experience, mixing is the key. If you want to rank inner page, build part of the links to your home page too. Also, optimize your site/page well on both lines, on-page and off-page.

    My experience the homepage always rank much faster but maybe that's because it haves the most content in my case.

    If you rank your homepage, it will pass the juices to your inner page.

    If you rank your inner page, that page can outrank your homepage for certain keywords.

    I recommend you focus more on your homepage, but also your inner pages. You do not want to put 1000s of links on just homepage. That looks too blatant. Diversify is the key :)
