Why is BigTracker the Best Jungle Scout Alternative?


As BigTracker is having more recognition in the market now, more and more people ask us to compare it with Jungle Scout. Some Jungle Scout’s customers looking for an alternative are asking us the same question.

We would like to give you a clear picture and explain the differences between the two products.



JungleScout launched 3 years ago. It’s the leading brand in product research software. Jungle Scout has a free resource sheet and complete tutorial videos. They cover most marketplaces and mainly focus on finding a product niche.

BigTracker launched a few months ago. What separates Bigtracker from the rest is the data accuracy, the product database, and deeper sales analysis. BigTracker mainly focuses on finding a product niche and competitors analysis. BigTracker currently only works for US, UK and JP marketplace, however, DE marketplaces will soon be available in Q1, 2018.


Product Research/Database

BigTracker has filters and group settings in advanced search and can easily save your frequently searched criteria as templates. BigTracker is always aiming for the data accuracy, so we don’t give any tag or scores on products. It’s inaccurate because nowadays the market changes daily. What we do instead, is transforming the sales model every 15 days based on collected data which is sufficient and meets the business trends.

BigTracker & Jungle Scout Head to Head analysis

JungleScout current sales column is more suitable for finding potential products.

BigTracker 5 factors prove BigTracker is suitable for finding a product niche and is the best for competitor analysis as well.

1) Deeper analytical chart to compare with other products’ sales performance.

2) Track reviews, deals, and Q&A which help you do the s.w.o.t analysis of your competitors to win the sales opportunity.

3) Track variations to help you find out the best selling child ASIN of each listing. You can stock more of your best selling products and consider to sell your competitors’ best selling products if you don’t have that child ASIN.

4) Brand Tracker:  Fully control your brand performance and do the competitor analysis when you want to know your competitors’ product lists and sales performance.

5) Track the latest deals to monitor the market trends and outperform the competitors on Amazon.


Data Accuracy

Even though many product research software differs from one another in terms of its utilities and functionality, data accuracy is often the deciding factor for sellers picking their ideal product research software on the market. Because it’s the core value of all the product research software, it will directly influence the decisions when finding potential products or taking the corresponding sales strategic plans.


Jungle Scout model mainly relies on the inventory numbers. When the inventory is over 999, out of stock, limited, or when restocking is happening or when the stock fluctuates in a wide range, that will cause inaccurate estimation of sales and revenue.


(1) BigTracker tracks 5 listings of each product, sums them up and analyzes the reason of buy box rotation every 15-20 minutes. (5 times more engineering resources than any other product research software)

(2) BigTracker gathers sales data each day to build sales models, and the sales models change every 15 days. That ‘s the key when the inventory fluctuates seriously and we could still keep the data accuracy.

(3) The result comes into nonlinear regression, which is called NURBS in engineering mathematics and BigTracker uses our state of art algorithm to analyze it.

So, the more days you track, the more accurate data you get.

Furthermore, based on our internal testing, Jungle Scout couldn’t estimate precisely if the number of orders is over 6,000 per month. On the contrary,  BigTracker can estimate precisely even if the orders number is over 10,000 per month.

Please take a look at the screenshot below. The same products in the cell phone and accessories category. This category is one of the most competitive categories on Amazon.



Frankly, it is impossible that the estimate sales of this high ranking product are below 6000 per month in such competitive category.

We also made a time-saving comparison sheet for your reference.
