AMZScout is a powerful research tool that has accurate sales data on more than 20 million products sold across the global Amazon network.
It’s a tool that’s designed to give existing, and would-be, Amazon FBA sellers more insight when it comes to market research. And it does a very thorough job.
The first thing you need to know about AMZScout is that there are two main parts to it. There’s the Product Database, and there’s the AMZScout Chrome Extension. Both are useful for finding Amazon Sales Data but are designed to be used differently.
For best results, I recommend using the AMZ Scout Product Database and AMZScout Chrome Extension in conjunction with each other (more on this below).
What is AMZ Scout?
How does AMZScout get its data?
The exact methodology of how AMZScout collects its data is a secret, for obvious reasons.
However, all of the information AMZScout collects about its products is freely available for anyone via the Amazon website. The value that AMZScout offers is that its database has valuable information on more than 20 million Amazon Products.
AMZScout is essentially a bot that crawls Amazon’s product pages and collects specific data points daily. This allows AMZ Scout to gather key information about individual products such as price, item weight, shipping size, and (most important of all) stock level.
By measuring Amazon product page’s stock level on a daily basis, AMZScout is able to work out how many units are being sold on a daily, weekly, monthly and annual basis.
This data – combined with a product’s price, size and weight – allows AMZScout to accurately calculate Amazon product sales data. Including the estimated revenue for individual products.
How to use AMZScout?
As I said above, there are two separate parts to AMZScout: the Product Database, and the Chrome Extension. From my experience, it’s best to start your research on the database.
AMZScout Product Database
This is a standalone website that gives you access to all of the platform’s data. However, when you first look at the blank screen, it is a little intimidating – especially if you’re not familiar with how the database is meant to be used.
Fear not. It’s actually pretty straightforward once you know one thing: your search always starts with the “More Filters” button.
From here, you can filter out literally every product on Amazon based on your, er, filters. You can filter by category, keywords (included and excluded), price, number of reviews, estimated sales, seller type, weight, sales rank, estimated revenue, review rating, number of sellers, date first available and listing quality.
This makes the AMZScout a very powerful tool for researching which products are profitable on Amazon.
Once you’ve set your parameters, click “Find Products” and the AMZScout Product Database will return thousands of products that meet your data points. From here, you can sort by any metric you like (price, fess, weight, estimated sales, etc.) and start building your list of potential products to sell on Amazon.
When you find a product you’d like to learn more about, it’s time to head over the Amazon website and start using the AMZScout Chrome Extension.
AMZScout Chrome Extension
OK, you’ve found a product that you think looks promising using the AMZScout Product Database. Now is the time to do some further research using the Chrome Extension.
The best way to use the Chrome Extension is to search for the product you’ve just found on Amazon using a broad search term – do not use a brand name as this will return very specific search results.
AMZScout review: Verdict
If you’re serious about using sales data to help influence what sell on Amazon, then AMZScout is an undeniably powerful tool. As I’ve said above, the key thing that AMZScout offers its users is the vast amount of data it has collected over the past several years on more than 20 million products. This gives the platform the ability to offer in-depth Amazon sales data at an affordable monthly or yearly price.
