Whether you’re a frequent shopper or an Amazon seller, being able to track product prices is going to help you quite a bit in getting the best deals. But instead of having to hit refresh on a page every 5 seconds to find out about new deals, you can save yourself that hassle and use a price-tracking app to do all the work for you. So take a few minutes to take a look at the 5 best Amazon price trackers you should have on your list of Amazon seller tools, it will be worth it.
Most certainly one of the price trackers that is best known, is CamelCamelCamel as it notifies you of the best prices for specifically the prices of the products that you are most interested in.
The app will show you Amazon price history graphs for millions of Amazon products, but with this app, you also have the option to create watches that will alert you when a product you are viewing has a sudden price drop. But if you prefer you can use it to take a more secondary approach, and you can add it to your browser so you can monitor prices.
It has support for multiple marketplaces, so you can find the lowest prices on Amazon all over the world. And one of the best features that CamelCamelCamel has is that it is free. You have the facility to sign up to receive your email notifications, or if you prefer you can remain anonymous and keep an eye out for price alerts via an RSS feed in your newsreader.
Keepa is another one of the most buzzed-about names when the conversation turns to the best Amazon trackers you can use. If you haven’t been captivated enough by CamelCamelCamel’s barebones format, then Keepa is the choice for you as it has a nice interface with shades of Google’s stylings.
Another good reason why you might choose Keepa over CamelCamelCamel is that unlike Keepa itself you can use it in other countries where the other is not available, such as Brazil, India, and Mexico (but not China).
You can sign up for Keepa for free making almost full use of its features (although it is worth mentioning that the interactive charts, price increase alerts, and the Keepa API are not available in the free version of the app), or you have the option to subscribe monthly to be able to use all the features with much higher limits on the number of items you want to track prices for.
No matter which option you decide to choose, you will have the facility to add it to your browser; extensions are available for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Microsoft Edge.
What this price tracker app brings to you is more of a Swiss army knife than the previous two. Aside from offering typical price tracking and product drop alerts, Earny can let you know if a price drop is possible for a particular item you’ve been watching. It will also study your tastes by scanning your emails for products you have previously purchased so it can track the price of items outside of Amazon and at other online stores, such as Walmart, Nike, and many others.
But one of the things we’re sure you’ll like most about Earny is that you can get a refund on items you’ve previously purchased if their price drops. That’s right, let’s take a closer look at what this option is all about. You will be able to get a refund of the difference for a product you have already purchased if the Earny app sees that its price has dropped. Can you imagine how useful this can be? You will no longer have to go through those frustrating moments when you have bought something and the next day you see how it has dropped in price when you had to buy it at full price.
Although as expected, this service is not completely free, considering the advantages, the subscription costs are quite reasonable. It only costs $4.99/month or $39.96 for the whole year. And if you receive a notification for a price drop on something you had already purchased, Earny will take a 25% fee and refund you the rest.
You can download the app for both Android and iOS or add it to your Chrome browser, and the apps are free unless you need to be able to access premium features.
Do you know the way you can enter a maximum price on eBay so that your automatic bids never exceed that amount? Well, Waatcher has a similar concept by allowing you to enter a maximum price for a certain product, which is the most you are willing to pay for that item.
The moment Whaatcher sees that your ceiling price has been reached, it will place an order immediately so that you don’t lose out before the price goes back up. One of the big benefits of this is that your holiday shopping is going to be much less involved and stress-free for you, although it’s worth mentioning that one of the downsides is that you may inadvertently forget that you’re tracking something until the moment it arrives on your doorstep.
All you’ll have to do is sign in with your Amazon account so you can sync with it and let the app take care of the rest.
If what you want is a more basic Amazon price tracker that has only the most essential bits of price tracking and not extra, hard to manipulate features that you’re not going to want to use. If that’s the case for you, you should take a closer look at The Tracktor.
It has three options: one is the search bar where you can type in any product name, ASIN or Amazon URL, engines, and trends.
If you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you have the option to choose from several countries (including Canada, France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, United States) to give you the ability to customize your results. What is one of the best parts of the app? It’s free to use.
Both Keepa and CamelCamelCamel are the best Amazon Price trackers available for free. They’re free, they’re simple to use and they’re updated daily. I normally use both of them but, if you are looking for an API service to track you competitor’s prices, Keepa is the only tool with an API you can pay monthly.
