Xray: The Ultimate Sneak-Peak Amazon Product Research Tool
Posted on: June 1, 2018 | Posted by: Jonathan Dean |
Xray by Helium 10 is by far the most comprehensive Amazon product research tool in existence that partners well with our Black Box tool and provides the hidden data on the products you are looking to sell on Amazon.
Our last blog introduced and outlined some of Xray’s key features. While all the features contribute to the data pulled for the product of interest, the Success Score is one of particular interest. This score tallies up the metrics of any given product and provides a viability score of how difficult it would be to succeed in selling that product.
Before we dive in to understand the features better and how they affect the Success Score, let’s dial back for a quick review of Helium 10’s powerful Amazon product research tool with ninja abilities.
