Helium 10 Tool Updates

Amazon Sellers, welcome to the year 2022. We’re sure you’ve already set a number of Amazon and ecommerce-related objectives for the coming decade. As usual, Helium 10 is here to assist you in achieving your objectives, but we wanted to take a moment to remind you of some key tool upgrades that may have gone unnoticed.

After all, our excellent development staff is working around the clock to ensure that everything goes well for you. Take a look at some of the most recent upgrades and how they might help you sell on Amazon this year.

 

Support for the US and EU markets at the same time

Yes, you read that correctly. You may now add (many) MWS tokens from both the North American and European/UK markets to your Helium 10 account if you sell in both locations. To keep track of data individually, you may name (create aliases for) the tokens on your account dashboard.

For merchants selling outside of their native marketplace, marketplace administration is critical. In the Alerts, Inventory Protector, and Profits tools, our upgrade lets you to smoothly switch between marketplaces. Because you’ll want to keep track of this data independently for each marketplace, the new multiple marketplace connection will make it easier to manage your accounts.

Before trying to swap between markets via the Alerts, Inventory Protector, or Profits tools, remembers to link your extra token first.

 

Referral fee percent by category is now included in the Profitability Calculator

The Helium 10 Chrome Extension includes the Profitability Calculator, an in-browser tool that has helped thousands of sellers do in-depth product and market research, calculate cost estimates, and assess product reviews.

The Chrome Extension features Xray, Profitability Calculator, Review Downloader, ASIN Grabber, and Inventory Levels, as you may already know. All are designed to help with in-depth product research and analysis, as well as analyzing present competitors and discovering new product niches to pursue.

Use Xray to compare and contrast potential items and product spaces, as well as acquire critical information about your rivals and monthly revenue/units sold.

Review downloader enables you look through your own and your rivals’ reviews to see what consumers are saying, and Profitability Calculator helps you see how much money a proposed product may make – and how much it would cost.

Instead of the default 15% referral fee, Profitability Calculator now allows you to specify a referral fee percentage based on the product category you’re studying. After all, not every classification is created equal.

 

Because the entire thing can’t fit inside the already-compact Profitability Calculator window, there’s also a useful data link inside the tool that will take you right to Amazon’s referral fee by category chart.

You might be wondering what the difference is between a 10%, 15%, and 18% referral fee, but when it comes to calculating earnings and ROI, every dollar counts.

That’s especially important for sellers looking to grow their companies; an oversight of 3% in fees charged by Amazon will hurt as much as a gut punch. Or, you know, you overestimated by tens of thousands of dollars.

 

As you type, Magnet now provides keywords.

Magnet is only a keyword research tool that allows you to see what Amazon shoppers look for when they shop. Unlike Black Box, Cerebro, and our other tools that target specific products by ASIN, Magnet is purely a keyword research tool that lets you explore what Amazon buyers search for when they’re shopping. Or, more precisely, what search terms people use to find their purchases.

Magnet is a wonderful location to learn more about what Amazon’s hive mind desires, especially if you don’t have a specific item in mind.

Consider it a tool to utilize during the early brainstorming stages of your product and copy research, when you may have a few hazy ideas in mind but need to do some “word association” to start the wheels going.

For example, I typed in “baby” into Magnet to see what would show up first – and I would have anticipated baby clothing, baby monitors, or something similar to be at the top of the list.

Anyone who has spent more than five minutes on the internet in the previous several months would have figured that out. While this isn’t the perfect example (you can’t sell Baby Yoda items on Amazon unless you’re part of the Disney Corporation), you get the point.

Anyway, “Baby Yoda” was offered initially because our engineers had just finished working on a new feature in Magnet. Magnet proposes terms based on predicted search volume as you input into the search field, with the highest search volume displaying first.

Yes, keyword research has just gotten a whole lot easier.
