Maybe the Buy Box is now way lower than before and you can’t make any profit? Or maybe the sales rank has changed and nobody wants to buy your product anymore.
The key to avoid such expensive mistakes is to understand the product historical data other than just the current situation.
By analyzing historical data of a product you can avoid expensive mistakes and better select successful products that you can sell on amazon for a profit.

How to Read a Keepa Chart
Thanks to Keepa you can collect a lot of info about the historical trends of a product on Amazon. Here’s the most interesting:
- Amazon in the listing
By tracking the orange area on the Keepa Graph, you can check how often Amazon is actively in the listing for a certain product and the price being offered. You can sell your product at an higher price when Amazon is out-of-stock.
- Price Stability
By checking the pink Buy Box line, you can have an indication of the price trend for a given product. If the pink line changes a lot, then it’s going to be more difficult to assess at which price you can offer your products. Sometimes it can be useful to assess your expected profit taking into account the lowest Buy Box value during the last month.
- Sales Velocity
By tracking the green line, you can have an idea of the sales velocity of a certain product. A value close to zero means that the product is selling many units every month. A constantly increasing value, means that the product is not selling and you should be more careful when purchasing it.
- Competitor Analysis
Keepa is a great source of information to get to know more about your competitors. How many of them you have to fight to win the Buy Box? Every Keepa Chart gives you valuable insights about the number of sellers over time and the price they offered. You can also have an idea of the price trend for both FBM and FBA sellers.
