DS Amazon Quick view has been a great, free chrome extension that primarily allows sellers to view product BSR quickly. However, according to its developer the tool saw reduced functionality from December 2019. 

Anyone willing to pay for the ‘DS Amazon Quick View Extended’ version will see 100% functionality across all Amazon marketplaces. 

Let’s briefly discuss the tool’s merits then, I’ll tell you why using the free version of Helium 10 or Productor is a MUCH better option.

What is it?

Quick View is most commonly used by Merch by Amazon sellers to quickly find the Best Seller Rank (BSR) of potential designs when doing product research. It is a free chrome extension with an extended (paid) edition, both are available from the chrome store here.

Essentially, the tool is a simplified version of Jungle Scout or Helium 10’s chrome extensions.

However, only the BSR is visible, not things like revenue, sales etc. Consequently, I find it difficult to work out why anyone wouldn’t use these better tools, other than for someone on an extremely tight budget. 

That’s like trying to run a marathon in flip-flops – I’m sure someone has done it but I’ll take the car thanks. 


DS Amazon Quick View adds the following information to the Amazon search results pages:

  • BSR and category
  • ASIN number
  • Seller info: type and number
  • Price and sales history (paid)
  • Product info on image mouse over
  • US Amazon marketplace
  • All other Amazon marketplaces (paid)


The standard DS Amazon Quick View is free. 

The ‘Extended’ version is £15.99 or $19.

Want a faster and better free alternative?

If the free version of quick view is functional for you, it’s a good way of finding BSR information however, it’s slow to load. 

The following two FREE alternatives are faster to load, give more information and have more features.

Why Helium 10 is better 

If you know me, you know I’m a massive Helium 10 fan. 

I use the full paid version and believe it’s essential for any Amazon seller. However, if you really want to keep it low budget, the free version will still provide a better experience than DS Amazon Quick View.

The free version will give you the following information in the search results:

The information is largely similar however, you get a few more ranks to assess, a fee calculator and it loads more quickly which makes life easier.

Why Productor is better

Productor offers an awesome free suite of tools for all your Merch by Amazon needs.

It transforms the Amazon search results into a goldmine of information with information on KEYWORDS:

It’s got everything you could want from keywords to estimated sales. 

Not only this, Productor transforms your Merch backend, creating its own dashboard with lots of analytics:

Productor really transforms your account for the better, it’s great. 

Some key features to get your mitts around (sorry copy/pasted from the chrome store, it was easier…):

  • Fast & easy Excel (.xslx) bulk import incl. price and colors
  • Auto check for banned keywords (Content Policy) – security for your listings!
  • Display Amazon Best Sellers Rank (BSR) on “Manage Products” and all listings of all Amazon platforms (Germany, USA, UK,…)
  • Extended “Manage Products” table to display “Brand”, “BSR”, “Reviews”-counter and faster access to “Edit” button
  • Amazon Advertising (AMS, AA) bulk export
  • Smart and easy detection of copyright infringements! Distinct better between your MBA products or stolen ones on Amazon.
  • Copy and Paste incl. colors! Copy contents of one listing (own or others) and paste it into another.
  • Focus Keyword extractor and analysis for every Amazon product
  • Never lose track of expiring Merch by Amazon products again. Daily popup for expiring listings for 60, 30 and 10 days including details and export function!
  • Improved Statistics and Analytics
  • Instant Notifications on new sales on MBA
  • Amazon reviews
  • Integration of edit and copy and paste (extended clipboard) functions directly into search results at Amazon
  • Full export of all your products including designs to easy backup
  • Trademark check of your listing included
  • One-click cross-listing and re-listing of existing products
  • Sort search results on Amazon by BSR (Best Sellers Rank) and Rocket Sellers
  • Auto convert designs to different sizes like from T-Shirt to Hoodie and Pop Socket
  • BSR history for all your products

Parting thoughts

Conclusively, DS Amazon Quick View is a handy tool when it works. However, there are much better alternatives out there.

For a quick and easy BSR check I suggest you use the free version of Helium 10 and for the complete Merch by Amazon experience I recommend Productor.

I can’t quite believe Productor is still free. The only thing that lingers in the back of my mind is the phrase, ‘if the product is free, you are the product’. Hopefully that’s just me being cynical though – I can’t see a drawback at this stage!

Take care,
