In the sea of Amazon seller tools, DS Amazon Quick View has created a well-known name for itself. Offered as an extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, DS Amazon Quick View is a research productivity tool designed to make product sourcing more efficient.

This information will include the number of FBA sellers on the listing, as well as whether Amazon themselves is selling the item.
In addition to the data box underneath each listing, hovering over the listing’s image will also provide additional information.

Overall, we are fans of DS Amazon Quick View. Downloading the tool consists of just a few clicks on the Chrome Extension webstore, and listing data appears immediately after download. The “freemium” version works here, especially because much of the data is available on the free version.
The extended version, along with $25 up charge, is suitable for more serious sellers who want the most out of DS Amazon Quick View, and who want the most amount of data available to them, in the most efficient manner. Being a single, one-time charge, I personally find the extended version to offer a compelling value, as its sorting/filtering functionality magically makes listings that do not fit a criteria magically disappear from the catalog. For serious product sourcing, DS Amazon Quick View comes to mind for many as an essential tool, and its efficiency further proves this.
