  • Marketplace: The list of markets selected for analysis. Users have the ability to select from a list of 16 markets (8 Amazon markets, 7 eBay markets and Walmart). For the full list of supported markets, please click here.
  • Market Price: This is the recommended selling price for the product in that specific market. Algopix takes into consideration all the variables, including the number of sellers, sellers’ feedback and sales history, and uses a proprietary algorithm to calculate market price.
  • Purchasing Cost: The price as quoted by a supplier or the price previously paid for existing inventory.
  • Breakdown of Expenses: Algopix provides a summary of the expenses associated with selling the research product in the selected markets. With this information, online sellers can calculate expected margin taking into account marketplace (eBay/Amazon/Walmart) fees, PayPal fees (for eBay sellers), FBA fees (for Amazon sellers that use Amazon’s storage solution), shipping costs (based on the product’s dimensions) and taxes.
  • Profit: The profit after all expenses including merchandise cost.
  • Competition: Based on the number of sellers who offer the product for sale in each market.
  • Demand: Algopix provides the demand level based on the volume of sales of the product last month in each market selected during the search process.
  • Recommendation: The recommendation is based on profit and demand calculation – if there is a demand to this product on that specific market and the expected profit margin is greater than or equal to 15%, then the product is ‘Recommended’.

Product Sales Performance

Algopix: How it Works

  • Estimated Units/mo: The estimated number of products sold in the last month. For Amazon, the monthly sales estimate is a calculation based on the product’s Best Sellers Rank combined with additional demand indicators and sales history. For eBay, the monthly sales estimate is a calculation of the actual sales in the last month.
  • Est. Revenue/mo: This number reflects the Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) from the past month. For Amazon, the estimated revenue is the sales number, multiplied by the base price of the product. For eBay, the estimated revenue is the sum of product-related transactions in the last month.
