Finder

What Is It?

Product Finder (Finder) is a product research tool that lets you search and filter products that are Best Sellers on Amazon.

The list is updated daily and contains data on more than 300,000 bestselling products on Amazon. Since BSRs (Best Seller Rankings) change many times daily on Amazon, you may see missing BSR numbers or occasionally two products with the same ranking, but other than these small variations the data is extremely accurate.

Data is gathered back 60 days.

 

Use

To get started, simply select one or more categories on the left. Data for the selected categories will be shown. You can then start to filter and sort the data by using the column headers.

Note: Finder gathers product info from the Amazon.com marketplace.

Sorting by any particular column is simple - just click the small up/down triangles in the column header. You can sort on one column at a time only.

The filters can be used on one or on multiple columns simultaneously. The Category, ASIN and Title column filters work on just the characters you type in, as you would expect. The remaining columns have a smart filtering system allowing you to put in value ranges and more.

= means Equals exactly
e.g. =St. Paul will not show items with North St. PaulWest St. Paul and St. Paul Hills,
but will show records with just St. Paul
> means Greater than e.g. >19.75
>= means Greater than or equal e.g. >=19.75
< means Smaller than e.g. >=19.75
<= means Smaller than or equal e.g. <=19.75
- means From - To (for number columns only) e.g. 19.75 - 39.95
! means Not e.g. !19.75 will show all items that don't have the value 19.75.
!abc will show all rows that don't contain the characters "abc".
"" means Blank (If you want to find the items that have no information in that column, not even 0)
!"" means Not Blank (This shows only the items that have something, even if it is 0.

 

Select Category

Here is where all the Amazon categories are. You can use these to start filtering your product research.  To Clear all categories use the Clear Categories button.  De-selecting a category removes it from the list.

 

When categories are selected the grid shows products in that category.  You can select multiple categories.

Information is updated every day, so when you run it, the system pulls the most recent data. Wait for it to load and then you can continue filtering.

You can also choose to:

Weight: is in ounces.

Price: do not include the Dollar ($) sign when entering values.  Price is in US Dollars.

 

The Product Grid

Once the grid of product info is displayed, you can then filter the columns as desired.  Clicking the "i" information button shows you all the ways you can filter.

The filters can be used on one or on multiple columns simultaneously.

The "Category", "ASIN" and "Title" column filters work on just the characters you type in, as you would expect.

The remaining columns have a smart filtering system allowing you to put in value ranges and more.

Examples:

> means: Greater than - e.g. >19.75 will show you any number higher than 19.75 (not including 19.75)

> means: Smaller than - e.g. <19.75 will show you any numbers that are less than 19.75

- means: From - To (for number columns only) - e.g. 19.75 - 39.95
