New and Used offer totals.
Competitive Price is, generally speaking, an FBA offer. Please note the * next to "Comp FBA." That asterisk indicates that the offer is most likely FBA.
If there's a Competitive New offer, it will show and it is not necessarily always Amazon's.
The Lowest Used Offer is called to distinguish from the Competitive Price because it is not always and is often not FBA. If one sells FBM, it is also obviously helpful to see. (We like to see FBM prices above $5.99 for the most part, and particularly if we intend to sell FBA.) Complementing the Lowest Used Offer's line is the offer's condition and associated Seller Rating. We believe these are important data points when making buying decisions.
The Competitive Price Offer's profit is calculated. Again, this is a general idea of profit for FBA of the item, based on garden-variety costs, weight, and height of the item.
In previous iterations of our software, we provided additional Used Prices, their conditions, and associated Seller Ratings. Two things made us re-consider retrieving more prices: one, space - formatting is limited, particularly on a mobile device; and, two, the benefits of seeing prices below the Lowest Price are, to us, limited.
For those unfamiliar with buyback or trade-in on Amazon, it was typically (and still is) a way for college students to sell back their books, often to a university bookstore, often at a large discount but at least in a way to recoup or mitigate their costs of education. Today, there are tens of online buyback companies who often buy not only textbooks but other non-fiction and literature for prices that you would not be able to equate selling FBA or FBM.
Accordingly, the first line under Buyback shows if Amazon is buying it for trade-in (Amazon gives store credit, not cash). We do not format any Amazon trade-in price if it's not at least $1.00.
The second line is a link to textbooks.com. "TB" is one of our favorite buyback companies because they often pay good prices for classics, not just "textbooks."
"BM" is for another of our favorites - bookmonster.com. Both textbooks and bookmonster are not searched if the sales rank is greater than 1,000,000; bookscouter should be used in these cases.
This section links to our Amazon sales history which, frankly, is limited and often there is done. On popular items, however, there can be a great deal of history, e.g. "The E-Myth Revisited." We show Sales Count, Avg Price for that Sales Count, and the last recorded purchase (sometimes the data doesn't update as readily as we like). Knowing Sales Historical Prices is a better measure, we believe, than simply whether items have sold, a la Keepa and camelcamelcamel (although their supporters were argue otherwise).
If you want to hook up to your own Sales History using Sellernaut, please let us know.
Yes. 10-digit and 13-digit ISBN searches automatically go to the single item page, but a non-ISBN search (title, author, product) will call up to eight results on the multi-item page with according images, if provided by Amazon. UPC searches (12 digits) do not currently work with the software but a fix is coming. The below partial screenshot shows eight results for an item.
Mousing over items will highlight them. Click on "More Data" by item and it will be submitted in the Search Box.
Almost all data is called via Amazon's MWS API.
Seller credentials are ours. We don't currently have access to Amazon's bulk data.
