We believe to have collected more data on e-commerce than any organization in the world. We monitor millions of marketplace sellers and brands.

We have developed proprietary technology allowing us to analyze e-commerce marketplaces including Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Etsy, etc.

Some of the data is available publicly like the top Amazon.com sellers and trending Amazon.com sellers lists, but there is more. For example, from the moment an Amazon or eBay seller joins the marketplace, we track their sales performance, products sold, fulfillment options used, and other metrics as often as daily.

We also use data science for our research articles, which uniquely allows us to analyze markets and trends. Combined with statistics from government and earnings reports we look at what’s next in e-commerce. Often the media relies on our insights and data for their own stories too.

Contact us if our data can be useful for market research, insights or for business strategy. We also have deep understanding of online retail, and can combine it with data to provide consulting.

However, we do not sell databases of business contacts, nor are we able to help to mass-contact sellers.
