The success of any drop-shipping venture is inherently dependent on identifying winning products.
And yet, e-commerce has become the hottest and cheapest way to set up a highly profitable store.
We equate this to the fact that the core business is quite simple. All you do is receive orders, forward the orders to suppliers, and get paid!
But wait! Is it really that simple? Of course not!
As they all say, setting up a beautiful store and filling it with products does not guarantee sales. There is an intricate system which begins with finding the right products.
The good news is, we live in a world of technology and business suave. Finding high-conversion products has never been easier. In fact, the internet is rife with hundreds of tools that claim to automate all the tedious and time-consuming tasks involved in drop-shipping.
So, the question becomes; which is the best drop-shipping/spy tool for the job?
Well, we are here precisely to answer this question. Our core business is testing out the various tools in the market to present you with an honest review.
Today, we will review the Commerce Inspector.
What is Commerce Inspector?
Commerce Inspector is a Browser Extension and a Hunt Tool used to identify fast-selling products.
It provides intimate Product Insights about a particular store. This helps you to make informed choices on which products to feature in your store.
Commerce Inspector works for Google Chrome on Mac and Windows.
Among the Product, Insights are Profit margins, Provider costs, Product engagements, and Data on the shops already selling the product.
Commerce Inspector is among the most popular Spy Hunt Tools in the market.
How Does Commerce Inspector Work?
The workings of Commerce Inspector heavily rely on Analytic Signals and Artificial Intelligence Algorithms.
By collecting data from multiple public sources, Commerce Inspector triangulates the data and relays predictions of sales, revenue, and profits. Commerce Inspector collects data from Facebook, Google, Instagram, and Pinterest among other public sites.
With this information, you can access reliable data concerning top in-demand products, traffic sources and targeting, Geography and key devices used, and overall product engagements across the entire ecosystem.
Commerce Inspector Key Features
1. Extensive Product Niche
Commerce Inspector has one of the most extensive product niche searches. You can search for products in categories and sub-categories.
The categories include toys, beauty and health, family, and pets. Sub-categories try to draw you as close to your niche as possible.
Additionally, Commerce Inspector allows you to sort your results by several filters. These include the newest products, most orders, Facebook Ads, most Facebook Ad likes, Facebook Ad shares, and Facebook Ad reactions.
2. Product Insights
Under product insights, Commerce Inspector allows you to see high-converting products as well as various reports.
The reports include Amazon Reports, AliExpress Reports, Facebook Ads Report, Ebay Report, and the Store Selling Reports. These reports are paramount in determining how a particular product is doing across multiple platforms.
Moreover, you get to see the Geography and Device details as well as Targeting suggestions. With this information, you can decide how to angle your Ad campaigns for maximum conversion potential.
3. Ease of Use
Commerce Inspector is extremely user-friendly. Their search criteria are clean and simple.
The moment you click on a product, all the information you need is displayed. From the product insights to the trends, traffic sources, and social links.
In fact, Commerce Inspector goes toe to toe with EcomHunt when it comes to ease of use.
Commerce Inspector Chrome Extension
Commerce Inspector’s Chrome Extension is a handy tool that is easy to use and extremely helpful.
This Chrome Plugin is Free to download.
Immediately after installing, the Commerce Inspector Chrome Extension begins to study every store you visit.
For starters, once you open any e-commerce store, you can click on the Extension to reveal details about that store including:
- Best-selling products
- Last week revenues
- Units sold
- Last updated product
If these details appear blurred, you need to upgrade to a paying subscription to access this information.
Secondly, you can click on the Sales Icon of the Extension to reveal details on Sales and Units sold. Again, these are not dead-on figures but estimates derived from proprietary machine learning and Artificial Intelligence algorithms.
Next, under the Products Icon, you will find all the recently launched products. There are also graphs indicating the timelines and how the products have been performing.
The Commerce Inspector Chrome Extension has a lot to offer. In its Free form, details like best-selling products and sales details are reserved for paying clients.
However, you will still get lots of useful information including the best-seller list, traffic sources, and the additional Apps used to optimize sales.
