So before you pull the trigger on either Jungle Scout or Viral Launch, take a look at our no-nonsense overview and comparison below.

For Amazon Sellers by Amazon Sellers

We don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk, too. Our founder and CEO Greg Mercer was an Amazon seller for two years before starting Jungle Scout and still remains one to this day with over 200 SKUs and millions in sales to his name.

Plus, many of our 50+ person staff also have experience as Amazon sellers including many of our educational and customer success teams.

This experience gives us the insight needed to create the tools Amazon sellers need. We have empowered tens of thousands of sellers in the past three years, who have put their trust in the tools that truly understand the inner workings of Amazon.


Accusales™ – The Most Comprehensive Data

Our sales estimates aren’t just wild guesses, they are based on real data from millions of products using our tailor-made Amazon sales estimation algorithm. It powers the data that is found in the Jungle Scout Amazon product research tools.

In order to power the most accurate sales estimates in the industry, there are a few important key components.

Big Data

We process over 500 million data points every day. The processing power to run all of this is huge. In fact, we spend nearly $100k per month just to run the computers powering our AccuSales™ algorithms.

A Skilled Team

Such a vast amount of raw data requires a highly skilled team to turn it into the AccuSales™ estimates found inside of the Jungle Scout software.

Starting in the summer of 2017, we assembled a data science team consisting of four full-time professionals with over 30 years of combined experience in engineering, machine learning and data analytics.

Between them our team has 3 PhD’s, 3 MSc’s and 5 BSc’s, and all this brain power is focused on one thing: making AccuSales™ as accurate as possible!

Customized Systems

We are using several microservices, thousands of secure servers and multiple data stores. The level of sophistication in our systems allows AccuSales™ to provide reliable, accurate and up-to-data sales estimates without interruption.

How can you access Jungle Scout data?

The Chrome Extension works in a similar way to the Unicorn Smasher extension. The difference is that the Jungle Scout extension allows you to pull in (more extensive) sales data from any page on Amazon: product listing, product search or category page. Drill down your data as you search.

The Product Database within the Web App is a reverse engineered catalog for Amazon sellers. Allowing you to search for opportunities with filters, it is the most advanced way to spot the products with high demand and low competition. The only tool of it’s kind on the market, the Jungle Scout Web App takes advanced product research to the next level.


Keyword Scout – Amazon PPC Data You Can Trust

Another huge advantage that the Web App has over many of our competitors is our Amazon keyword research tool, Keyword Scout.

Powerful Data

Keyword Scout helps sellers find keywords for their product pages and Amazon PPC advertising campaigns. Not only does it supply hundreds of useful keyword suggestions, but it also gives raw data on broad and exact searches, plus infinitely valuable pay-per-click and headline search ad bids.

No More Guesswork

And these aren’t just guesses, either. This is accurate Amazon keyword data straight from the source. No more pulling from Google or Bing or using autocompletes. We get our data directly from Amazon. Hard to get any more accurate than that, right?

Part of the Package

There’s no upcharge to get your hands on Keyword Scout. This Amazon keyword research tool is currently included in all three packages of The Web App. So on top of all the other awesome tools it comes with, you’ll get Keyword Scout, too. That’s why The Web App is almost everything you need to start selling on Amazon all rolled into one!
