Finding the right Amazon selling tools for your FBA business is a chore in itself. There’s a lot of great options out there. Which one’s the greatest, though? Well, that’s a complicated question that depends on exactly what you need.

Every single dollar you spend should be put towards expanding your digital footprint. If you don’t choose the right service you’ll just end up spending money. That’s why we decided to put together an in-depth, unbiased comparison of some of our tools against those of Jungle Scout and Helium 10! Let’s get started.
What do They Have In Common?
Before we dive into what sets each service apart, it’s worth pointing out what they have in common. We believe in making the best, data-driven decisions possible that make sense for you and it wouldn’t be fair to simply point out only the cons. With that in mind, here’s a quick breakdown of all the similarities:
- Cloud-based SaaS solutions for new and existing Amazon sellers
- Market analysis tools that require Google Chrome
- Sales data grabbed from Amazon’s API
- Approved by Amazon
- Supported by teams of highly-experienced software developers and Amazon sellers
As you can see by this list, all of these services provide more or less the same thing: tools and advice for improving your FBA business. The way they actually go about providing that, though? That’s a different story.
What Sets These Amazon Selling Tools Apart?
- Data Accuracy
This might be a tough one to suss out, as all three tools claim they have the most relevant, accurate, and current data, and all three use Amazon’s API to grab it. The big difference, though, is that ZonGuru receives data Jungle Scout and Helium 10 simply don’t have access to anymore. That’s because roughly a year ago, Amazon pulled the plug on various APIs that everyone used to grab data. However, unlike everyone else, we found a workaround! That means you get accurate info you won’t find anywhere else.
What about pricing? These tools can be pricey; you want to make sure you’re getting the most of your dollar, right? ZonGuru offers 3 different membership tiers: Starter (geared newbies still in their product research phase), Business, and Advanced (these last two are geared towards established businesses and power-sellers. Our most popular package, the Business plan, runs at $99/month and offers access to all 17 of our tools.
ZonGuru’s pricing options
Jungle Scout also offers 3 packages, but the packages themselves differ from ours. You can either purchase a package with access to only their web-based tools, a package with the web-based tools and their Chrome extension, or just the Chrome Extension. Their most popular package, the web-based tools plus the extension, is cheaper than our Business package at $69/month but offers fewer tools than us.
Jungle Scout’s pricing options
Last but not least, we have Helium 10. They offer more pricing plans with 4 available packages, one of which is free (and not that bad for those of you just looking for product research tools!). However, as you can see, the rest of their options are pretty pricey compared to Jungle Scout and ZonGuru.
Helium 10’s pricing options
- Assortment of Tools
Each service has a ton of tools. Instead of explaining each one, we just made a handy table that shows you what each one has and doesn’t have.
The different tools each service has
Each service has its pros and cons. For example, Helium 10 has a refund tool that helps get sellers rake in money they may not know they’re owed. Or how about review automation? All three services have something just for you.
None of these tools have an incredible tool in their belt, though: EasySource. This tool is a result of our world-first, exclusive partnership with Alibaba.com to help you find reliable product manufacturers.
- Customer Support and Chrome Extension Support
Customer support is essential to any thriving business. You need to keep a friendly, professional, and prompt rapport with your customers if you want to stay in business. Our global (we have agents in the US, Asia, and Australia!) have selling expertise themselves they’re eager to share with you. Fun fact: we’ve never dropped below a 90% customer satisfaction rate!
ZonGuru’s customer satisfaction rate
In regards to marketplace support, all three Chrome Extension tools support international marketplaces. The big difference, though? We’re the only one that supports the Australian marketplace! “Big deal,” you may say. Think about it, though: the Australian marketplace is less competitive than the bigger ones. That means more opportunities for smaller, newer businesses to grow!
What Sets Us Apart
Now that we’ve compared the different tools and services, it’s time to talk about what ZonGuru gives the edge over the rest of the Amazon seller tools out there. It boils down to two things: data and ease of use. Take a look at some of our most popular tools, for example.
- Keywords on Fire
Keywords on Fire supercharges your keyword research
Keywords on Fire is one of our most popular tools, and with good reason. This tool performs a reverse lookup against any ASIN and spits out a deduped list of money-making keywords along with relevant data points such as search volume, generated revenue, and the average PPC bid price. This completely customizable tool lets you see data in ways other tools can’t so you can find innovative ways to capitalize on long-tail keywords your competitors don’t use. Or maybe you’re looking for backend keywords. No problem! Read more about how we can help beef up your backend keywords here.
EasySource: Your One-Stop-Shop For Finding Reliable Suppliers
EasySource quickly finds you the right supplier
EasySource, a brand new tool, quickly finds you the best suppliers to fulfill your specific business needs. We teamed up with Alibaba.com to leverage their massive supplier database and provide you with the best of the best. Quickly get in touch with a supplier via the Chrome Extension or filter results out based on your needs in our web-based app! We’re proud of this tool and you won’t see it anywhere else.
Niche Finder: Find Your Next Profitable Product Niche
Find product niches others can’t
Finding a product niche is tough. There are literally millions out there. Niche Finder, our other brand new tool, shines a spotlight on the most profitable niches others can’t see using advanced filtering options that weed out options that don’t fit your business vision. It also displays all the relevant information you need to make informed decisions upfront and center, such estimated initial budget, PPC bid, and more!
Each of these Amazon selling services has its own unique set of tools and expertise to offer, and at the end of the day, you have to make the best decision for your FBA business. That being said, we believe our tools provide the most value. When we say that we’re “by sellers, for sellers,” we mean it. We have over 15 years of eCommerce selling experience between us that we’re eager to share with you.
