Unicorn Smasher Pros & Cons
- Free & easy to use
- Display a list of the product details, such as rank, estimated sales and revenues, reviews, etc.
- Manage your search results in a dashboard.
- Export the report to CSV
- Not accurate in data. Many users both on forum and app store have given feedback that the data is not accurate especially in sales estimating.
- Poor customer service. The articles on their support center are out of date, you can only email the support team if you need help.
- Fewer features than competitors.
- It can only display data, it can not provide customers with efficient guidance and still requires users to evaluate by themselves.
- Currently only provides sales and revenue estimates for the US and UK markets.
Overall, Unicorn Smasher is a fair Amazon product research tool which is not as good as it advertised. You need to already keep a product idea in mind beforehand because this is a research tool to help you know about estimated sales and revenue of the product you want to sell. It won’t help you if you have no ideas about what categories you’re going to sell.
Unicorn Smasher can fulfill your requirements completely if you’re new to the Amazon selling or simply want to make a product research and draw inspiration from the information it offers. If you have an in-depth knowledge of Amazon and need more comprehensive information, Unicorn Smasher maybe not suitable for analyzing and tracking the competitors.
Compared to Jungle Scout, free and easy-to-use are the biggest features of Unicorn Smasher, they are also the reasons why it is so popular among Amazon sellers.
