Helium 10 for Amazon: All features, cost, experience & alternative [Deutsch]

Helium 10 - The #1 software for Amazon in test.
Amazon has become increasingly popular in recent years and is currently the largest online marketplace for products of all kinds. In the meantime, it has even become a search engine and according to the latest statistics, over 2/3 of product searches on the Internet already take place via Amazon. Amazon is thus the #1 in e-commerce and accordingly some softwares have been developed for it.

One of the best known and supposedly the best is Helium 10. The provider from the USA offers an Amazon analysis / marketing software. It allows collecting crucial data which is important for Amazon sellers. But how good is the software really? We have tested Helium 10 in terms of features and provide an independent and objective review.

Functions / Features

One of the main reasons why Helium 10 is so popular and probably currently the best provider on the market are the many functions and features that the software offers. It’s a Swiss Army Knife or better put All1One when it comes to Amazon. From the initial analysis to the ongoing optimization of any process, Helium 10 offers everything a professional Amazon marketer / seller needs.

Black Box

Under the name Blackbox runs the Keyword Research Tool on Helium 10. It is more or less the core function of the software and allows deep keyword research. This is the most important tool for most Amazon sellers and the first step before you start selling products. You have the possibility to access a database with over 450 million products and activate dozens of filters during the search.

X-Ray Browser Extention

If you want to have a quick first impression of the market, the X-Ray Browser Extention is definitely worthwhile. With just one click on the icon in the Chrome browser, you can view the data from the open Amazon window and get a quick overview of the market. Very handy for initial research.

Scribbles – Listing Optimizer

Scribbles is a handy tool that displays keyword density and placement on your own product listings. It’s like a scanner and checks if each listing really contains all the keywords you want to rank for. Is very suitable for checking and as a second check.

Cerebro – Reverse ASIN Search

Cerebro is the detective of Helium 10 and provides deep insight regarding the data of certain ASINs. This makes it possible to look through products from other manufacturers and learn certain things. For example, you can see which keywords another product is ranking for and which of them convert best. Then you can implement them yourself and try to rank on them. Or you can identify certain keyword gaps that you can fill yourself.

Extremely useful feature!

Refund Genie – Inventory Reimbursement Finder

Amazon is not perfect and loses or damages certain products during shipping. However, this often goes undetected or is reported too late. Refund Genie automatically checks the delivery and reports as soon as certain errors occur. This way, you won’t miss a single refund and you’ll save money.

Inventory Protector – Guard Against Scammers

There are also dishonest competitors on Amazon who want to harm other sellers through fraudulent activities. One tactic of this is to order new products in high quantities so that they sell out quickly. In the end, however, the orders are never paid. However, the high number of fake orders puts the actual listing on SOLD OUT. Inventory Protector protects against such scam attacks.

More tools

There are a lot of other tools and features that you get with Helium with every paid license. These include ALERTS, which detect and warn about hijackers and frauds. There is also an internal email marketing tool which is incredibly useful. Anyone who does e-commerce knows how important email marketing is (even on Amazon). In addition, there are also intelligent tracking features which suggest new keywords and suggest optimizations for old ones. And much more…

Thus, Helium is indeed the Swiss Army Knife among Amazon tools and currently outshines all other providers.

Helium 10 functions


One of the most important points when it comes to data science and data analysis is, of course, the accuracy or correctness of the corresponding data. Currently there are many softwares on the market which only estimate or approximately extrapolate certain data. This leads to inaccurate results and ultimately poor results. In the worst case, this can even cost a lot of money.

So far, Helium 10 results have been extremely reliable and accurate. The data we have received so far has all been very accurate across all marketplaces, including Germany. Accordingly, Helium 10 is a very good choice in terms of accuracy compared to other providers among the top tools.

Costs / Prices

The cost of helium is comparatively higher than that of the competition. This is because Helium 10 offers more features and also packs them all into the respective plans. Although there are cheaper providers, you usually have to buy tools / apps to achieve the same functionality with Helium 10. In the end, the costs are usually not even higher.

Currently Helium 10 offers four standard plans. The cheapest one is free of charge and is used to test almost the full functionality free of charge for a limited period of time. So there is no risk if you are not 100% sure if Helium 10 is the right choice. Because you can start without any costs.

However, the Platinum plan then starts at $97 a month and is probably the best choice for most sellers / marketers. You get the most important functions and that at a reasonable price.

The prices refer to monthly payment. However, if you pay annually you only have to pay for 10 months and thus save -16.66%.

Below is another brief tabular overview of the plans and their functionality. As described above, the Platinum Plan will be absolutely sufficient for most users. This is perfectly sufficient and already provides the full functionality.

However, those who already sell professionally with high volume can also upgrade to DIAMOND or ELITE PLAN. There you get the same functionality but with higher volume in terms of searches, email you can send etc.. Thus, primarily suitable for professional full-time Amazon seller / marketer / agency who want to use the software more.
