Navigating the Chrome Extension

 

After you install and activate the Helium 10 Chrome extension, the icon will be active in your toolbar when you are on the Amazon site. The icon allows you to access the tools inside the extension like Xray and Profitability Calculator, but even without opening the extension from the toolbar, you’ll immediately see new product information displayed on the search results and product pages.

Amazon Search Results Pages

The Chrome extension works on Amazon search pages. The first things to notice are the Helium 10 widgets, which will seamlessly appear on every Amazon listing. These widgets introduce or link to additional data so users can begin to evaluate the strength of any given listing on the Amazon marketplace instantly.

Some of the additional product data shown on the search results page includes each product’s Best Seller Ranking (BSR), variations, fulfillment method, and how many sellers are selling it on Amazon. The following graphic shows the additional product data that is displayed above each product on an Amazon search page when the Helium 10 Chrome extension is active.
