The best Amazon FBA and Private Label Sourcing and Research Tools
Here we review the best Amazon FBA tools and software to help you source winning products to sell. Whether it’s for online arbitrage, wholesale or private label, these tools will make your research more efficient and ultimately more successful.
You can spend hours manually searching Amazon and other websites. This can be incredibly frustrating and time-consuming and it can still be difficult to find good opportunities. The additional profit you can make from using the tools listed should easily cover any costs. Using software is also the only realistic way to scale up your Amazon business and go full-time.
Online Arbitrage – buying from one website at a low price and selling on another website, usually Amazon, for a higher price.
Private Label – sourcing a generic product usually from China which you then brand and sell on a new Amazon listing.
Reviews of the best Amazon FBA product sourcing tools
FBA Wizard Pro – $115 – $135 (£83 – £97) per month
We currently use FBA Wizard Pro for online arbitrage sourcing, private label research, eBay selling and wholesaler scans. It is probably the best all-rounder and has lots of additional features lacking from other tools.
You can scan a retailers website for profitable products and it works in the US, Canada and the UK. You can also scan for products on Amazon to resell on eBay and you can import wholesale or distributor feeds to check these against Amazon for opportunities. If you are looking at launching a private label product it will also scan Amazon for potential product ideas much like Jungle Scout. For this reason, it is probably the best all in one solution and we strongly recommend it.
Jungle Scout Chrome Extension – $97 (£77) Lite Version $197 (£157) Pro Version – one time
Most people have heard of Jungle Scout and they produce high-quality sourcing and research tools. This is a chrome extension which works like Unicorn Smasher. You go to the product results page and click the button and it provides data on the products such as BSR, rank, reviews, and monthly sales.
This is very useful for Private Label research and product selection but can also be used for general product sourcing. There is a cost but Jungle Scout has a lot more features than the free extensions and will work in most Amazon Marketplaces. The Pro version also includes FBA fees, profit calculator and trends. If you are serious about selling on Amazon you will not be disappointed by Jungle Scout.
Jungle Scout Web App – $29 to $69 (£20 – £50) per month
The Web App is more expensive than the chrome extension but does serve a different purpose. A lot of people will have both and they do work well together. With the Web App you can put in pre-defined filters and it will search Amazon for those matching products so it does more of the hard work for you. It is great for Private Label research and general sourcing and it will let you track particular products to see what is selling. It currently works in the USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, Spain, India, France, Italy, and German Amazon marketplaces. If you are doing Private Label this is regarded as the best product research tool available.
You can also use the FREE Jungle Scout Sales Estimator to get monthly sales volume for any product being sold on Amazon – Jungle Scout Sales Estimator
Amzscout Chrome Extension – FREE TO TRIAL
Amzscout is very similar to Jungle Scout. They also offer a chrome extension and web app which both offer similar functionality to the Jungle Scout tools. Amzscout is cheaper than Jungle Scout, has loads of great features, and now works in 9 different Amazon markets. It is free to trial so we recommend testing it out today.
Amzscout Web App – $19.99 – $39.99 (£15 – £30) per month
Again this is very similar to the Jungle Scout web app where you can search using filters and it will provide data on sales volume, competitor strength, tracking products price history, revenue estimation and much more. Using all these features you can quickly identify winning Private Label products to sell on Amazon.
It now works in 9 Amazon marketplaces including the USA, UK, Canada, Mexico, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and India. We do highly recommend Amzscout and you can try it for free today.

It allows you to do retail arbitrage, Amazon flips and wholesale scans. Tactical Arbitrage is a complex piece of software but if you put the effort in it could prove to be a valuable asset.

Amazeowl is a relatively new chrome extension and desktop application which is currently free to use although additional features do cost money. They have just released a UK version but they do charge a fee for this. It is mainly focused on Private Label research and is quite similar to Jungle Scout where it will show BSR and other product data to help you find opportunities. If you are in the US then it is worth testing it out.
Unicorn Smasher – FREE
Lots of our Facebook Group members recommend Unicorn Smasher which is made by the people at AMZTracker. It is a chrome extension similar to Amazeowl and will provide BSR, sales estimates, ranking and other important data. It is well suited to Private Label research but can be used for any sourcing strategy.
Unicorn Smasher is a great tool especially considering its free and has such a good name and works in the US and UK. You do not require a professional selling account to use Unicorn Smasher so it is ideal for people testing the water.
InventoryLab Scoutify – $49 (£39) per month
We thought InventoryLab Scoutify app should also be included on our list as it offers a slightly different angle on sourcing. This is a tool that comes as part of the InventoryLab software that lets you scan barcodes of physical products when doing Retail Arbitrage. It will then analyse the data to show potential profits and the product sales history so you know whether to purchase it.
InventoryLab is a complete suite of tools for selling on Amazon and helps you manage your inventory, research products and keep track of your profits. If you are doing Retail Arbitrage this is a great all in one solution. They are currently offering a 30 day free trial.
