Jungle Scout
Amazon

You have probably heard stories about people looking at how to make money from Amazon and have created 6 or 7 figure businesses.  

If you what to promote physical products you can use Amazon as your supplier, order processor, and product fulfillment company. They actually do this very well, it’s called Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) and thousands of people use them for exactly that.

Fulfillment by Amazon is a service introduced in 2015 that provides fulfillment for small, light items and offers free standard shipping for items offered on the site by third-party sellers.

Jungle Scount It works

This can work for you too, once you join Amazon’s affiliate program you only have to promote products on your website and if your visitor uses your link to make the purchase through Amazon you get the commission on the sale. 

You don’t have to stock or ship the product so it’s an ideal affiliate business model if you want to deal with physical products and it works, as a recent study found that over 44% of respondents searching for products actually buy from Amazon.com.

So the opportunity here is enormous.

However with the millions of products available on Amazon for you to promote the problem is, how do you work out which is the right product to sell?

Research

Everyone knows product research is the most difficult part of any e-commerce business, it’s not unusual for online business people to spend over Turtle image80% of their time researching products!  It’s a time-consuming step 

Hit and Miss

Several years ago, selling on Amazon was a hit and miss. Sellers would have to learn what products to sell by using trial and error, they’ll list one product, see if it sells, if not, move to another,  which was wasting a lot of time.

If a product sold, they’ll keep listing it, if not, they removed it and tried a different one. Obviously, that’s one way to find hot products, but the process is rather time-consuming and not really ideal.

But Now

Fortunately, there is now some software that can assist you with all that.

With the click of a mouse, you can see any product’s estimated monthly sales volume, its Best Seller Rank, its sales revenue and all the other criteria that are critical in identifying profitable opportunities for every Amazon product that you are considering selling.

This saves sellers an incredible amount of time so that they can focus on ordering products and managing sales instead of spending a lot of time on product research.

It allows you to find profitable ways to make money from Amazon so you can promote with confidence and success without the need for guess work.

It’s a Jungle out There

The software is called Jungle Scout and it will help you make informed, educated decisions based on actual sales data and will let you view all the data for any Amazon listings in a matter of minutes.

Today we’ll take a look at Jungle Scout and see if you can really use it for Amazon research, how it works, and how you can use it to improve any e-commerce business.

Jungle Scout Review: What is It?

Let’s start with the basics, what is Jungle Scout?

  • Name: Jungle Scout
  • Type: Amazon Research
  • Price: Free Trial (memberships start at $39/month).
  • Website: https://www.junglescout.com
  • Niche: Amazon Research Tool
  • Creator: Greg Mercer

Jungle Scout is an extension for your web browser that gathers seller’s data from Amazon. When you browse Amazon or specific Amazon listings, the extension will list all the data about that item in the sidebar for your convenience.

The data includes average price, brand, category, average sales rank, the number of reviews, sales per month, estimated revenue, rank, and much more.

The data is all listed in a simple spreadsheet that you can organize as you please, for example, if you want to see the most expensive products, click the price tab and the listings will be organized from highest price to lowest price.

You can also copy and paste the entire spreadsheet into Excel or Google Docs.

custom-avatar“This makes it incredibly easy to find ideal products to source and sell online. That means no more researching individual stats and typing in numbers into your own spreadsheets, it’s all right here for you! 

That means no more researching individual stats and typing in numbers into your own spreadsheets, it’s all right here for you!

Check the demo video below:


How to Use Jungle Scout:

The process is rather straightforward, create a membership, install the extension, and browse Amazon.

When you type something into the Amazon search bar, Jungle Scout will light up and show all the relevant data related to your search term.

This includes all the listings and the data related to those listings, average prices, average items sold per month, and much more. It makes it incredibly easy for you to find out if a product has potential or not.

How do you use this to Create an Online Business? 

Once you learn how to read the data, it’s easy to find hot products that you can source and sell.

According to Greg Mercer, the items that have the most potential are priced between $17 – 40 are lightweight and sell more than 10 a day. Also, any product that can be bought wholesale for 1/3 of the price, and shipped by air.

With this criteria, reading the data becomes easy, all you have to do is find items that satisfy the formula.

These are just some of the guidelines for a good product, there are more, but we won’t discuss those in details here.

Jungle Scout

Other Considerations

Shipping is an expense so it needs to be taken into consideration. Fortunately, Jungle Scout also lists the average weight of the products, and this is probably one of the most useful features because you’ll spend most of your budget on shipping fees.

The heavier the product the more it costs to ship, therefore, finding light products will save you a lot of cash, that’s cash you can re-invest into your business.

Hit the Jungle Scout tab for weight and you’ll see all the lightest products for your search term.

Then, it’s a matter of finding a source for the product.

So, with the Jungle Scout data in hand, the next step is to find a supplier for your product, and if you manage to find a supplier that sells the product for 1/3 of the price it’s sold on Amazon then that’s a potential product for you to sell.

Jungle Scout Review Conclusion:Jungle Scout

Jungle Scout is definitely one of the most useful Amazon research tools I have tried out, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to create an online e-commerce business.

It helps you smash the competition, competition that are researching products by trial and error so it saves you a lot of time.

Take the product criteria I mentioned in this article and use Jungle Scout data to find the products that have the most potential, make a list, and then start ordering!

Soon you’ll see the sales come in and you’ll have cash to re-invest into the business.

So, creating a 6 figure online e-commerce business as an Amazon affiliate is actually not that difficult, it’s all a matter of finding the right products and with Jungle Scout it just got easier.

Go ahead and check it out here, I know you won’t regret it.

  • Arif Islam

    This is such a great read. I had some knowledge about the content prior to the jungle scout section, but had no idea that there is software that specialize in all that stuff. Are you a partner or one of the owners? This is some great stuff and I would definitely be interested and learning more about the application. Is it web based?

    • Peter

      Hello, Arif. Thank you for your questions. Is the it web based? yes because its using live stats from Amazon to provide the data that it analyses. Am I the product owner or a partner of the product owner, I wish, but no.

      The best thing about Jungle Scout is with a click of a mouse, you can see any product’s estimated monthly sales volume, its Best Seller Rank, its sales revenue and all the other criteria that are critical in identifying profitable opportunities for every Amazon product that you are considering selling.

      This saves sellers an incredible amount of time so that they can focus on ordering products and managing sales instead of spending a lot of time on product research. Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Matt

    Great website! Very consistent, up to date and informative information.

    I loved your amazon affiliate guide. Very well written.

    It’s good to see that you’re promoting a company capable of providing a stable long-term income, but most importantly one you can try out for free, with no strings attached. With all the scams out there, Wealthy Affiliate is definitely a step in the right direction.

    • Peter

      Hello, Matt I totally agree WA is an awesome place to get the RIGHT education to making money online. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

  • Affiliate Degree

    Fantastic site. I just started and am new to affiliate marketing; however, your site has provided me with such valuable information that is current. I have noticed that on a lot of other sites that the information is oudated but I can see that you keep up with current times which is a big relief. The content is of quality content and the advice is fantastic and I can’t wait learn a lot more from you!

    • Peter

      Thank you so much for your comments and I am pleased you have also joined my mailing list as that way you will always have access to my latest posts as I write them. Thank you for your feedback. 🙂

  • Derek Marshall

    Hi Peter,

    Your posts of late really have been hitting a home run with me as of late. This great tool does seem like a god send for anyone currently or interested in selling on amazon (the latter is my case).

    Now, I have heard that selling on Amazon can be a minefield as with using FBA do you have training or recommended training resource that covers teaches how to do it? It would certainly save me a lot of errors and accelerate the learning curve Vs doing it alone.

    Also, software, if any that could source products, would be an absolute time saver. Gotta be something out there !

    Finally, can I go it alone and sell directly on Amazon without my own niche related website or do you recommend that I do it via a niche website in conjunction with my amazon site (i.e reviewing and selling my own products)?

    • Peter

      Hi, Derek Combining those two programs (I mentioned in my post) you should find it much easy to find success with selling Amazon products (even if you a not Techie) The advantage of having a ‘product review site’ is that people who are probably buyers, are the ones who are looking at review sites and a niche site of course is where you will develop your own followers to then suggest / recommend your Amazon products to. Thanks for your comments 🙂

  • Paul

    Hi peter,
    I am in the early stages of building a website and online business, and I am considering signing up with amazon associates in to promote relevant products to my niche. I must admit this is the first time I’ve come across this type of software it looks very interesting and your review is certainly very in depth.
    Are there other softwares out there like this?

    • Peter

      Hello, Paul Thank you for your question. I’m sure there is probably other software out there, but I have not reviewed them so I cannot comment on them. I did like this one though and found it to do the job very well so therefore I wrote a review about it. Thank you for your comments 🙂

  • Nick

    This is a highly informative article Peter. I had no clue software like this existed. I am still on the hit or miss plan right now. This would definitely save a lot of wasted energy.

    Is jungle scout affiliated with amazon? Guess I am still a little confused on that. Thanks in advance.

    • Peter

      Hi, Nick Jungle Scout is an independent program but created my Amazon Affiliates who use it every day. It allows them to find profitable ways to make money from Amazon so they can promote with confidence and success without the need for guess work. Thanks for your feedback 🙂

  • Mijareze

    Affiliate marketing is a viable way to make money working online. Amazon has millions of products that you can market with your website. You don’t have to pay for the products, warehouse them, all you do is advertise the products and people who visit your site, click on your links and a sale is made between the customer and Amazon. All you do is collect the commission. Just another viable option!
    Thank you,
    Edward Mijarez

    • Peter

      Hello, Mijareze I totally agree, being an Amazon affiliate is indeed a great way to do business and if that the business you are in then Jungle scout will certainly be a useful tool for you. Thanks for your comments. 🙂

    • Peter

      Hello, Teresa You are welcome and thank you for your comments. You are right there is a free trial and if you are selling Amazon products then this is certainly worth a look. 🙂

    Very informative article. I’ve been wondering about Amazon for some time now. After reading this, I think I’m going to give it a try. I didn’t know about Jungle Scout. I’m going to get it. Should make product research a lot easier. Thanks for getting me on the right track!

    • Peter

    I really like your website, its calming, and very colorful. You have a very good mix of content and images that are explaining your product review. The video just adds to the complementary. I am going to check this product out and if its up to snuff as in the review, I will purchase this item.

    • Peter

  • Terrance Williams

    Nice clean looking website. A lot of headings and space between the sections to keep from getting overloaded. The Jungle Scout seems like a real help for dealing with products on Amazon. With a little experience using it it could be a really valuable tool. The statistics it generates would be invaluable for product selection which is always a problem dealing with the size of Amazon.It looks like once you learn how to deal with selection and then shipping costs you can make a lot of money.

    • Peter

      Hello, Terrance.Thank you for your comments. Yes Jungle Scout makes it incredibly easy to find ideal products to source and sell online and is a great tool for anyone selling physical products on Amazon. Pleased you liked the post. Enjoy the book that is coming your way. 🙂

  • Lee

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the review on jungle scout, i have never heard of it and as I am currently looking into promoting Amazon products on my site i feel this will help me a lot in finding the right products to promote.

    I have found a lot of useful information on your site that will help me build my business.

    Would you suggest going after high or low ticket items first?

    Thanks
    Lee

    • Peter

      Hello Lee, Thanks for your comments. My suggestion is to promote what you are passionate about. It’s not really the product you are promoting it’s the story you write and the angle you present that will get the buyers interested in what you are promoting. Jungle Scout will give you the data you need to answer that question once you find find something you are interested in. Good luck with the program I’m certain you are going to love it. Cheers 🙂

  • Kachina

    I never really thought about the importance of researching a product before posting it on your page. YOu have opened my eyes to how you should know how well your product sells. I think it is pretty cool that Jungle-Scout simplifies the whole researching process. To be honest I never really knew how one could do that. I like simplicity and this seems like an awesome product. Thanks for your review!

    • Peter

      Hello, Kachina Yes, This saves an incredible amount of time so that now you can focus on ordering products and managing sales instead of spending loads of time on product research.

      This allows you to find profitable ways to make money from Amazon so you can promote those products with confidence without the need for any more guess work.

      Thank you for your comments. 🙂

  • Nate

    I really like the idea behind Jungle Scout for promoting products on my website that are already selling really well on Amazon.
    One thing that I’m not certain on is the commission that I would be making from a sale of one of these products. Is it that same commission that I would make through using Amazon’s affiliate program or would I actually make the difference of the cost of the product from the sale price?

    • Peter

      Hello, Nate. Good question. The commissions are the same as your affiliate program because that’s how you will be getting paid . Jungle Scout is just a tool to help you with your Amazon business. The software allows you to see any product’s estimated monthly sales volume, its Best Seller Rank, its sales revenue and other criteria that are critical in identifying profitable opportunities for any Amazon product that you are considering selling. Thank you for your comments. Enjoy the ebook that is coming your way. 🙂

  • Jorge Dominguez

    This is an amazing website, well structured. I found so many valuable information that i will be using to launch my amazon product. I have a question, in terms of taxes and import fees. What is your understanding on the subject and the best way to deal with this? Is there a good strategy to maximize the effectivity of imports?

    • Peter

      Hello, Jorge Taxes are payable in the tax jurisdiction you reside in (except for U.S citizens who must pay taxes on their entire world income – no matter what country they live in) Taxes are something you need to discuss with your tax attorney and I can’t give you advice on this. There are however some very good strategies (if you are not a U.S Citizen) Thanks for your comments and enjoy the book that is coming your way 🙂

  • Taylor

    Nice insight, Peter. I am looking to get started in Affiliate Marketing and your articles really helped me out. I was pretty confused before but now I know exactly what I need to do to get the ball rolling. Can’t wait to be living out of the country making money head over heels!

    • Peter

      Hello, Taylor Several years ago, selling on Amazon was a hit and miss. Sellers would have to learn what products to sell by using trial and error. Fortunately, there is now some software that can assist you with all that and with the click of a mouse, you can see any product’s estimated monthly sales volume, its Best Seller Rank, its sales revenue and all the other criteria that are critical in identifying profitable opportunities for every Amazon product that you are considering selling.
