AccuSales™ is Jungle Scout's sales estimation engine, a tailor-made Amazon sales estimation algorithm we use to calculate sales and revenue numbers.
Our team has created specialized systems and algorithms that provide our members with reliable and accurate estimates. Each and every day, we process over 500 million data points from a variety of sources, including information from actual Amazon sellers who have opted-in to share their sales info with us.
Our team of developers and data scientists (2 Ph.D.s, 2 MScs, and four BScs between them!), have been working on our AccuSales™ equations non-stop since the summer of 2017. Our data takes into account many data points beyond inventory and rank information, which means that we collect, analyze, and test the data required to populate the estimates you see in Jungle Scout daily. If and when the systems spot a significant variance in the data, which could affect the potency of the algorithms, our systems update the final estimated sales immediately.
During times of high fluctuation, that means estimates could be updated several times a day. During periods of more stability, the updates might happen on a weekly or biweekly basis. Ultimately, these modifications lead to more accurate sales estimates.
