Check Amazon Product Sales Data with the AMZScout PRO Extension

Amazon's global sales in 2021 were $468.78 billion. That is $64.34 billion more sales than in 2020, a 15.91% increase. Amazon's net income for the 12-month period ending on September 30, 2021, was $26.263 billion, a 51.14% year-over-year increase. Most of these sales come from the roughly 2 million active third-party sellers.

While the marketplace offers great potential, there’s a lot involved in choosing the right product to sell on Amazon. You need to find an item with a good amount of demand, a low level of competition, and solid profit margins. In addition to all of these things, your product should also sell consistently all year long. 

AMZScout’s PRO Extension lets you quickly and easily estimate sales, calculate trends, and perform an analysis automatically for any item or niche you’re considering selling. This post outlines a step-by-step process for how to check sales of a product on Amazon using the PRO Extension.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Choose a Product or Niche

Based on your criteria, choose a product, niche, or market that you think would be profitable to sell on Amazon. Some examples are “hedge clippers”, “oven mitts”, and “camera bag”.

Step 2: Install the AMZScout Pro Extension

  1. Click here to install the AMZScout PRO Extension.

  2. Once it’s installed, you’ll see the AMZScout icon in the top corner of your browser.

  3. You’re now ready to start tracking monthly price trends and sales data, using a wide range of easy-to-understand graphs, reports, and estimator tools.

The PRO Extension comes with a free trial offer and it’s simple to set up, so it’s definitely worth giving it a try. In addition to showing product trends, it also lets you see important data like estimated total monthly sales and orders, price, competition levels, and other helpful statistics. You can also compare different items to find the best ones. If you’re wondering how to get amazing insights on Amazon products, this is the easiest way.

While looking at the best seller rank for all of these products will give you some idea of what their sales are now, it won’t tell you what their sales were a few months or a year ago. Remember, sales fluctuate all year, so analyzing an item’s current ranking won’t help. This is where the AMZScout PRO Extension can assist you and keep you ahead of your competitors.

Step 4: Analyze Product History Data Using the PRO Extension

  1. Click the AMZScout icon in the top right corner of your browser.

  2. Once the PRO Extension is open, click the arrow to the left of the product you’d like to check.

  3. Check historical data for that particular product. Click on “Product History”.

  4. Check if the item has sold consistently over the last year. Analyze the graph.

  5. Check how the price has fluctuated. Analyze price history.

  6. Check how the rank has changed throughout the year. Analyze the rank history.

Product history will show you how an item’s sales, price, and rank have been changing. You can see when sales were at their lowest and when they were high. You can also track changes in price and rank, as these can impact sales as well. Based on this information, you’ll be able to predict if sales will increase, drop, or stay the same. When it comes to following product trends, this is the best solution.

Step 5: Analyze Niche Trends

In addition to checking the trends for each individual item, you can also see trends for the niche as a whole by clicking “Niche History”. Like product history, you want to see consistent sales throughout the year to be sure it’s a good niche.

Step 6: Try Different Searches and Keywords

If your research indicates that your first product idea isn’t a good match for your business, you may need to edit your ideas and keywords. Try different searches to see if you can find an idea that’s more promising. For example, searching for “coloring book” will yield much different results than simply searching “book”.

Here are a couple of suggestions that can help:

  1. Get a list of new products associated with that keyword. Click the arrow to the left of a product, then click “Get Keywords”.

  2. Find a list of new keywords associated with the niche you’re looking at. Click “Niche Keywords” at the bottom of the screen.

You’ll be surprised how many great new product ideas these tools can generate.

Bonus Step: Use AMZScout Tools for Additional Research

AMZScout’s Product Database is a great way to generate product ideas for Amazon FBA and to do additional research. Here are a few of the things it can do:

  1. Go to the AMZScout Product Database.

  2. Start your free trial. If you do not have an account, you will be taken to a sign up form. Enter your details and start your free trial.

  3. Set product criteria. Use the search filters to set your product criteria. You can filter items by sales, price, weight, ratings, or other important traits. If you are unsure what criteria to use, you can use one of pre-made Product Selections filters to start.

  4. If you only want to find items with a positive sales trend, select the “Trending Products” filter. This will ensure the results only show items that have been trending upward over the past few months.

  5. Review the results. Click “Find Products”. If you don’t find any items that you like, you can adjust your search with new filters.
