In the Jungle Scout App, I’m noticing that the “Product Tracker” part of Jungle Scout is much different than the Jungle Scout Chrome Extension.
The bar graph represents the data for Product Tracker. As you can see only 8 units were sold for the past 30 days but yet the Chrome Extension shows that 151 are sold every month. Even if I include “estimated units sold” from Product Tracker, it still doesn’t add up to 151. That’s a big difference.
Am I reading JS wrong?
the product tracker estimates the sales based off the change in inventory where as the extension uses the BSR and our in house algorithms to estimate monthly sales. The product tracker is usually more estimate IF the seller has less than 999 in stock, there is only one sellers on the listing and they aren’t adding in more inventory often. In the cases where all of those aren’t true, the estimates based off the BSR (best sellers rank) are usually more accurate. For this particular listing, I would need to know more information to figure out exactly what is going on. If you would like to send the ASIN to firstname.lastname@example.org we would be happy to look into it further.
Could be that one is being tracked in a diff category.
Also I think chrome ext takes the number of units sold in the past *7days I think??* and x30 to estimate / mth sold. So could be that 6 units were sold just recently but the beginning of the mth was a little slower.
Webapp is more precise so obviously go with that when comparing the second.
I have found that sometimes Amazon’s BSR category on the listing is off. Amazon states that a product’s BSR is xxx in Home & Kitchen but it is actually xxx in Kitchen & Dining. Try adding the product to your inventory ie click Sell on Amazon. The category on your Seller Central is the correct one. JungleScout makes estimates based on the BSR listed on the listing so if there’s this error, then the estimates will be off.
