9. Kiprt

11. CashCowPro

cashcowpro

Useful but fairly basic, Cash Cow Pro is a reasonably priced tool with a number of useful features.

Cited (by themselves admittedly) as the number 1 Amazon selling tool, Cash Cow Pro features an advanced top 20 Million Best Sellers and includes a free Chrome extension download.  

Although frustratingly, Cash Cow Pro doesn’t give the option of filtering lists of products (despite its assertion that it has all the features you need to grow your business), most of the important filters are available.  

There is the option to search either by keyword or by the number of sellers which can come in really handy but, unfortunately, users are not able to delete products from the lists which don’t make for efficient house-keeping.

Cash Cow Pro pricing runs from $49.97 per month or $497 per year.  It has a 10-day free trial and discount for your first subscription.

Find out more about Cash Cow Pro in this video.

12. AMZshark

amzshark

When navigating the murky waters of Amazon selling, AMZ Shark is a great tool to keep close at hand.  

Using the method of tracking actual product sales, AMZ Shark has a number of useful features including the Shark Score which is a competitiveness score for niches.

Fast and accurate, AMZ Shark supports Amazon Japan and China giving it an advantage over Jungle Scout who has yet to include these territories.

This informative video gives you a lowdown on this useful tool.  

The place where AMZ Shark lets itself down is in its filtering which is vastly inferior to that of Jungle Scout.

AMZ Shark is, unusually, free for the whole of the first month but then gets a little expensive at $299 per month.

However, the price includes a large number of features including 1500 keywords and 1000 sales tracker products.

As an Amazon seller, nothing is more important than a product and it’s worth investing in decent tools for your trade.  

Although the free tools listed here can be useful (particularly for those just dipping a toe in the water), most sellers will eventually migrate to one of the more powerful paid options for the extended features and increased reliability.
