To be a successful seller on Amazon, you can’t operate on hunches—you need to rely on accurate tools to make data-driven decisions. While tools are completely necessary, over one third of Amazon sellers say that having the right software and information is essential to a profitable Amazon business.
Jungle Scout and AmazeOwl are two examples of Amazon seller software. While they both offer useful features for essential seller activities like product research and keyword research, which tool is right for you?
In this post, we’ll walk you through the main features, benefits, and pricing plans for both Jungle Scout and AmazeOwl while providing a non-biased, side-by-side comparison so you can choose the best tool for your Amazon business.
Data Accuracy: Jungle Scout or AmazeOwl
Tools like Jungle Scout and AmazeOwl need to provide sellers with accurate data when offering insights on profitability. If not, then sellers risk their hard-earned money on products that may not sell.
Jungle Scout has the longest-running history of data aggregation and analysis among competing software and is the leading Amazon business management platform in data accuracy—and we can back that up.
The talented Jungle Scout team works hard to ensure its users make informed decisions based on real-time Amazon marketplace behavior.
Regular case studies that show Jungle Scout consistently leading other tools in measures of data accuracy.
The chart below compares Jungle Scout’s data accuracy to that of other seller software.
As you can see, Jungle Scout is number one in data accuracy—and the clear winner compared to AmazeOwl. In fact, Jungle Scout is 27% more accurate than AmazeOwl.
To see how important data accuracy really is, let’s relate these numbers to real-life financial risk.
Jungle Scout’s accuracy:
Imagine we just came up with a great product to sell on Amazon, and we’re willing to spend $5,000 on inventory. Before we place an order with our supplier, we should run the numbers and ensure it’ll be profitable.
Jungle Scout’s 84.1% accuracy sounds pretty great—that’s an 84% chance that our sales estimation is correct, and our $5,000 investment will pay off with consistent sales.
Let’s reframe that figure in terms of Jungle Scout’s margin of error—the percent chance that the data is not accurate, and will lead to over-or under-estimating potential product sales. Essentially, we need to consider the chances of our product not selling—how likely we are to lose that $5,000 due to inaccurate estimates of its competitiveness in the Amazon marketplace.
Jungle Scout’s margin of error is 15.9% (100% minus 84.1%).
This means there’s roughly a 16% chance your product may underperform based on your estimation, and you’d only make a return on a portion of your inventory investment. Or it could simply not sell at all, in which case you’d lose $5,000, plus the time and energy you put into product research and sourcing.
Obviously, we want our margin of error to be as small as possible. But as our case study indicates, there’s considerably less risk if we rely on Jungle Scout’s data instead of AmazeOwl’s.
AmazeOwl’s data accuracy is much lower than Jungle Scout’s, so its margin of error in turn will be higher. Using the same example as above, we’re now at a 38.8% chance of investing in a bad product—which puts us at a much greater risk of launching a product destined to fail, and subsequently losing our $5,000.
Advantage: Jungle Scout
Jungle Scout is the clear winner here on data accuracy vs. AmazeOwl—and its accuracy only continues to improve. Compared to AmazeOwl, using Jungle Scout is the safer choice when it comes to deciding which product to sell.
Features: Jungle Scout or AmazeOwl
While data accuracy is extremely important, so is having cutting-edge features to help you run and manage your Amazon business. Let’s compare Jungle Scout’s features to AmazeOwl to see which platform does more for Amazon sellers, in terms of both quantity and quality.
Advantage: Jungle Scout
Again, Jungle Scout is the clear winner here. It offers more features and is better equipped to support its users as they expand their businesses.
For instance, AmazeOwl may be able to help you with product and keyword research, but only Jungle Scout offers tools to connect you with overseas suppliers, help you manage your inventory, boost your review count, and expanding your product range with profitable opportunities.
User Experience: Jungle Scout or AmazeOwl
In this section, we’re going to evaluate the user experience for each platform. While Jungle Scout and AmazeOwl have some similar features, the look, feel, and ease of use are important differentiators when picking the right selling tool.
Let’s compare Jungle Scout and AmazeOwl’s most similar feature: Product Database.
Jungle Scout’s Product Database allows users to easily apply a variety of filters to view potential products within specific categories, by fulfillment method, price, review count, rank, and more. After you hit “Search,” Product Database will populate with thousands of results, displaying important metrics like price, Amazon fees, reviews, and rank. Users can view up to 100 results on one page for an at-a-glance overview of products in a given category.
You can also view a product’s seasonal sales trends so you can be sure you’re investing in an evergreen product.
Users can send product ideas from Product Database to Product Tracker to monitor monthly sales and price over time. This allows sellers to distinguish viable product opportunities from those they should skip over.
AmazeOwl Product Database
AmazeOwl’s Product Database interface is quite different from Jungle Scout. While they share similar filtering options, Jungle Scout’s Product Database has a cleaner layout that makes it more user-friendly.
AmazeOwl displays results with similar metrics, though you can only view a few products at a time, making it difficult to get an overview of search results. You are able to save product ideas in “Potential Product” where you can then send them to their Product Tracker tool.
This comes down to preference. Both tools offer various search filters, sales insights, and product tracking abilities. Some users may find it more helpful to view many potential products at a time, and should opt for Jungle Scout.
Expertise & Experience: Jungle Scout or AmazeOwl
Jungle Scout was developed by Greg Mercer as a business management solution for fellow Amazon sellers. Having become a successful seller himself, Greg built Jungle Scout into a powerful, data-driven platform to give other entrepreneurs the tools and insights necessary to grow thriving ecommerce businesses.
Greg is an FBA expert who regularly appears in Jungle Scout’s educational content to share tried-and-true techniques for success on Amazon. He has been recognized as Best Amazon Expert (2017), Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year (2019, 2020) and Top 50 SaaS CEO by The Software Report (2019, 2020).
Jungle Scout’s engineering, customer success, and marketing teams also feature successful Amazon sellers. They share their expertise through the Million Dollar Case Study, regular educational webinars and other resource content, and, of course, Jungle Scout’s industry-leading tools themselves.
After Oleg Zaidiner, the CEO and co-founder of AmazeOwl, sold his company in 2015, he began selling products on Amazon. He quickly realized that sellers need detailed and accurate market data in order to make the right decisions. Coming from a data science background, Oleg created his own solution to accurately analyze Amazon market data.
After launching successful products on Amazon, he and his cofounder Bob Rogers decided to launch AmazeOwl in 2016 with a desire to help other sellers do the same.
AmazeOwl has grown to over 4,000 sellers who use the tool to start their own successful Amazon business.
