Using Alura

Go to Etsy.com and find a page with listings that you are interested in. This could be a search page, like the listings that show on a page after you searched for a term, or a page with an individual shops listings.

Open the extension and watch the table populate with estimates for the listings on your page:

Find the best selling items in your niche and learn what types of listings sell well. Inspect them further to see which tags are relevant for your products and which photos best-selling products use.

About the estimates

The estimates are for sales and revenue in the past 30 days. This way, a listing that has been active for 3 years will be comparable with a listing that is 3 months old.

The estimate is based on listing information from Etsy's API such as the number of views, favorites, category, when the listing was created and more. The estimate is not 100% accurate, but it gives a good indication of which products are most popular and a reasonable estimate. The app is intended for getting insight into what is selling and what isn't. It does not give exact numbers.
