Compare your Merch By Amazon data to the Same Time Period Last Year for

We’re really excited about this one. This is a super cool feature for those who have been selling on Merch By Amazon for over a year.

If you’ve been using MerchPilot you know your dashboards show a percentage change on all KPIs for the last period. For example, if your date filter is set to 1 month, your percentage change comparison period will be the previous month.


Now on both your Sales dashboard and any Product dashboard, you can switch to Comparing to the same time period last year! This is great to help understand year-over-year changes as well as normalize seasonal impacts in your data.



Product Change Activity

Throughout the life-cycle of your products, they go through many changes with the two most important being price changes and product name changes. Now MerchPilot can detect these changes and display them on the product dashboard.

Even cooler is that you can click on any change record and it will highlight where that took place on the trend chart! This helps you see if those changes created a surge in new sales or identify changes that may have had a negative impact.
