Ecomhunt! You have probably heard about this research tool before (a lot of YouTube “gurus” talk about it), but have you ever seen the paid Ecomhunt from the inside?

If not, then let’s change that today by reading my in-depth Ecomhunt review!

Ecomhunt started previously by offering only one tool, but it has gradually added other features to make itself an “all-in-one” solution for dropshipping winning product research.

I want to cover everything that this all-in-one research tool can do by actually using and reviewing it, so that you can make an informed decision about whether it is worth your time and money.

Let’s get started with discussing what Ecomhunt is!

What is Ecomhunt?

Home page of Ecomhunt

Ecomhunt is an all-in-one dropshipping product research and market research tool that’s packed with winning dropshipping products. Their platform is curated by professional researchers who handpick winning products and post them on the platform.

Each product is supplied with a wealth of information that can help you get the most out of it, including Facebook Ad information, product images, suggested selling prices, possible profits, and much more.

In addition, they provide you with other useful tools, such as AliExpress product research tools, trend picker tools, and more.

Ecomhunt Review: Quick Review for Busy People

Personally, I think Ecomhunt is great for dropshipping beginners who don’t have much experience yet with their Facebook targeting or who don’t know what kind of products to sell.

They will provide you with a lot of useful information about each winning dropshipping product that they publish.

Yes, not all products are great, but they still publish some amazing products inside their tool!

Just don’t forget to not copy everything. Otherwise, you’re going to have a hard time beating your dropshipping competition.

You can register here for a free account to check it out, and you can keep that account free for as long as you want.

The only thing is that there are some limitations to the free account, but it’s still a great option if you just want to check out the product research tool or if your budget is tight!

Let’s Begin With the Most In-Depth Ecomhunt Review You Have Ever Seen!

Are you ready to find out if this product research tool is something for you or not?

Are you ready to see Ecomhunt from the inside and not just see screenshots from their website?

If so, then let’s get started with my awesome in-depth review of Ecomhunt!

Just to note, I won’t just include images from their landing page. This way, you can know if this product research tool is something for you or not.

I will give you my personal opinion of everything inside Ecomhunt! Like what kind of information they give with each winning product.

And, of course, in the end, I will give you my final conclusion of if I think Ecomhunt is worth your money or not!

A quick warning, though: it’s a long review because I’m going over everything inside Ecomhunt.

So, if you don’t have time, simply scroll to the bottom to see the conclusion!

Ecomhunt dashboard

Let’s start with this one!

The first thing you see when you log into your Ecomhunt account is the dashboard view. Ecomhunt has just recently launched a new dashboard view, which is currently under beta testing for all of its users!

The new dashboard is good news for a couple of reasons: first of all, it’s much more user-friendly than the old one.

Dashboard of EcomHunt software

You can see info about available products, new videos, and blog posts from Ecomhunt, and you also have a chance to talk with their 1-on-1 expert, which we will get familiar with later!

The most important thing from the dashboard is the left sidebar.

Left side bar of Ecomhunt dashboard

You can use all the tools offered by Ecomhunt from the left sidebar of the site!

Compared to the old dashboard view, the new one is much more friendly to use and showcases the newly available tools better. This was how the old dashboard version looked:

Ecomhunt old dashboard view

The old dashboard view was more focused on the Ecomhunt winning product tool, which is now just one of a number of tools available to you.

On top of all this, the new Ecomhunt dashboard view also tells you that their team actually listens to user feedback and implements changes!

They are constantly working on making Ecomhunt a better product research tool, which is good news.

Ecomhunt winning dropshipping product finder

Winning product finder of Ecomhunt

The feature that Ecomhunt was built on and the most popular feature to date is their dropshipping winning product finder.

Is it worth all the hype?

Well, yes, kind of.

While they give you a lot of information about the products and provide you with everything needed, a lot of other people are using the platform, which makes it competitive.

What do you think happens when everybody sells the same products with the same description, ads, targeting, and so on?

Well, I don’t think you will have much luck…

Just please keep this in mind: Use these kinds of product research tools as inspiration, and don’t just copy everything they provide!

What information will you actually be provided about the winning product?

Let’s go through that!

I’ll show you a screenshot of each part of the product page, and then I will tell you what kind of information they give and what I think about it.

Here is the overall product page view, and you will see under the screenshot the first things that they will give (you can find these things in the screenshot):

Product page of Ecomhunt
  • Jack Kaching. You will get a 1-on-1 expert consultant (we will discuss more about that below).
  • Product description. They will give you an example of the product description that you can use. The product description example is longer, but otherwise, the image would be a bit too big!
  • Sell with Spocket button. As a new feature, Ecomhunt has a “Sell with Spocket” button on their pages. When clicked, you will be directed to download the AliScraper Chrome extension, which allows you to import your products from AliExpress directly to Spocket. If you don’t know what Spocket is, it’s a dropshipping platform that helps sellers find products from thousands of US & EU suppliers.
  • Product images. They show you a few of the product images, so you can see if you like the product or not.
Product images of Ecomhunt
  • Profits and costs. They will show you a recommended selling price. Plus, they will show you what the product cost will be and what your profit margin will be if you sell the product with their recommended selling price.
  • Saturation Inspector. I think this one is quite cool. It shows you how many stores are currently selling the product; although, I’m not entirely sure how they get this information or if it’s just an estimate.
Profit, costs and saturation inspector of Ecomhunt
  • Profits. Almost the same as the one above, but they will also show you an estimate of the CPA (Cost Per Acquisition).
  • Analytics. This will give you a short summary of the stats of the AliExpress seller that they recommended. They also have a button there to show the reviews, but that will only make you scroll down (where they show the AliExpress reviews). So more on that below!
Ecomhunt winning product available info
  • Engagement. These are the engagement stats of the Facebook Ad that they give you as an example. This way, you can easily see if the engagement is good or not, without going to Facebook first to see the Ad yourself.

    Keep in mind that these stats are probably not updated after the product is placed. So maybe the ad performed even better.
  • Links. Well, I guess this one speaks for itself. But if not, you can find all the links here. Like the link to the AliExpress seller or the link to the Facebook Ad!

    I think it’s nice that they organized it like this because it’s easier to find now, instead of, for example, scrolling down to find the link to the Facebook Ad.
Facebook ads examples of Ecomhunt
  • Here they show a screenshot of the Facebook Ad with the comments. This way, you don’t have to go to Facebook yourself. But I guess you will still go to the Facebook Ad yourself to see the recent comments and recent engagement statistics (like how many likes).
  • And they show you who they will target on Facebook. Here you can see who they would target on Facebook. Here is the zoomed-in version in case you’re curious:
Facebook targeting example of Ecomhunt winning product
  • They also show you a YouTube video there. This makes it even easier to get inspiration for your video ad(s). You don’t have to go to YouTube yourself to find other stores selling the same product.
Targeting recommendations of Ecomhunt product
  • If you scroll down even more, you will find their Facebook targeting suggestion. This is basically the same as above, but it’s a bit easier to see who to target, what age range, country, and so on. Most of the time, they will only give you one row of Facebook interests.
Instagram influencers of Ecomhunt winning product
  • Instagram Influencers examples. If you’re using Instagram Influencers for your marketing, then this one is great for inspiration! They will show you a lot of Instagram Influencers that are in the same niche as the product. You can press on the arrows to find even more influencers!
eBay sales statistics from Ecomhunt website
  • Next up are eBay Sales Statistics. This will show you what the product is currently doing on eBay. Like what the average product price is, how many listings, and how many products are sold in total! Not all of their products will have these statistics, though.
AliExpress sales statistics from Ecomhunt website
  • AliExpress Sales Statistics. Alright, I’m not sure about this one. I have seen better ones that show the statistics of an AliExpress product or seller. This one doesn’t seem to be working correctly, and it doesn’t show for every product (same as with the eBay statistics).
AliExpress reviews of Ecomhunt platform
  • AliExpress reviews for that product. They integrated with AliExpress so you can see the reviews of the product (from the seller that they linked to).

    I guess it’s nice that you can have all this information on one page, but you can’t do much with this. All you can do with this is check if the reviews are positive, but you can do that on AliExpress as well.
Winning products from same category Ecomhunt
  • More winning products from the same category. This is the last thing that they show you for each product. It’s basically a “More items like this” list.

    It will give you some inspiration, and maybe you will see products that you otherwise wouldn’t have clicked on. (Keep in mind that these are products that are placed on Ecomhunt.)

    But yeah, personally, I think it’s a bit weird that it doesn’t show you any dog, cat, or pet-related products. The products that it shows now are the products that were recently added to Ecomhunt. So I think a better name for this is: “Check out the newly added products on Ecomhunt.”

Ecomhunt live products

Live products tool feature of Ecomhunt

Let’s move to the next feature, which is the Ecomhunt live feature!

What does that mean?

The Ecomhunt live feature provides you with the trending products on the market with constant data refreshes. This means that these products constantly change, depending on if they are trending or not.

Live product buyer information of Ecomhunt

When you click on these products, you will get additional information about the product and its target market. You can see the countries by interest, buyer interest over time, and description of the product.

The tool is quite similar to the Ecomhunt classic winning product finder, but it gives you somewhat of a more live view of the product and different information, such as the buyer interest over time.

Ecomhunt lucky tool

Ecomhunt Luck tool

The next feature, the Ecomhunt lucky tool, is quite a unique feature!

You can choose from four different filters and get a winning product based on those.

Most of the filters are only available for paid plans, but you can try out the tool with one filter if you have the free plan!

In my opinion, this is definitely not the best feature that Ecomhunt offers, but it does provide some extra value to the platform (you might get lucky and find a winning product).

Ecomhunt tracker tool

Tracking performance feature of Ecomhunt

Another unique feature that Ecomhunt offers is its tracker feature.

Basically, by adding an AliExpress link to this tool, you can track the performance of the products & monitor their sales. This allows you to stay ahead of your competitors and shoot for big opportunities before them.

You can see the following things:

  • Sales today, yesterday, past 7 days, and past 30 days
  • 7 and 30 days sales growth
  • Total orders
  • Price of the product

On top of that, Ecomhunt has Facebook and Shopify trackers as well, but they are not available yet for use (coming soon).

AliExpress Product Research Tool

Ecomhunt has a built-in AliExpress product research tool, which is called the Adam virtual assistant!

Adam is a sophisticated search engine that allows you to find winning products directly from AliExpress.

You can either use filters and have control over what kind of products it recommends to you or give Adam full control by not using any filters.

Ecomhunt alerts

Alerts center of Ecomhunt

One cool feature of Ecomhunt is its alerts center!

It’s a tool that allows you to get product alerts and customize them to your needs.

You can simply click the “New Alert” button, and you will be headed to choosing one of Ecomhunt’s product research apps.

Custom alert popup of Ecomhunt

From there, you can add different filters by product keywords, such as “cats,” “kitchen,” or “camping.”

Filter by product keywords feature of Ecomhunt

Lastly, you can filter products by price and the net margin range.

Filter products by price option Ecomhunt

After that simple process, your alerts will show up on your alerts center, and you will get an email notification anytime your keywords or filters match.

Ecomhunt extension

Chrome extension of Ecomhunt

Ecomhunt also has a Chrome Extension designed to help you to track down your competitors and get insights on their Shopify store.

Ecomhunt Chrome extension tool

The benefits of the Ecomhunt Chrome extension:

  • Show only sponsored posts. You can filter out your Facebook home feed to show all the ads that are running at the current moment.
  • Show only viral sponsored posts. With the “Viral Ads” filter, you can see all of the most viral ads that are active on Facebook.
  • Shopify store inspector. Advanced Shopify inspector tool that allows you to see different things from a Shopify store, such as what apps they use, what are their new products, and best sellers.

Jack Kaching (Your 1-on-1 Expert Consultant)

One to one support of Ecomhunt tool

One of the extra things that are included in Ecomhunt and that you don’t see on other product research tools: is Jack!

Jack Kaching will be there on your Facebook Messenger as your 1-on-1 Expert consultant.

You can ask him everything—for example, questions about targeting, testing, and scaling. You can even ask him to review your store!

This one is original, right?

I personally didn’t see this one in any of the other product research tools that I used and reviewed!

You will get “access” to Jack if you signup for their pro plan. (More on the price of Ecomhunt below.)

Ecomhunt Winners Club

This one is quite cool and original!

If you have at least $5k in sales using products that you found on Ecomhunt, then you can apply for their Winners Club.

You will get a cool free Ecomhunt T-shirt and a place on their winner’s wall.

Their blog

Blog site of Ecomhunt

Alright, this is not that original; most product research tools have a blog.

But I still included it because they write about some amazing things, such as different dropshipping advertising strategies, success stories, and many tips and tricks.

Plus, they also break down winning products for you where you can learn everything on how to sell that product. (But you can, of course, use that information to sell other products as well!)

Tutorials and podcast

Another thing that Ecomhunt includes is some amazing tutorials and podcasts.

Most of them are only accessible to paying members of Ecomhunt, but you can find some of these videos for free on Youtube as well. For example:

In terms of the Ecomhunt podcast, it is available for everyone to listen to.

They feature different dropshipping experts on the podcast who tell their personal stories on how they built successful dropshipping stores.

Courses and e-books

Courses of Ecomhunt tool

If it wasn’t already a lot, Ecomhunt also offers courses and e-books!

The courses are only available for those that have a Pro plan or above. But the e-books are available no matter what plan you have!

Their community forum

Community Facebook page of Ecom Hunt

Moreover, Ecomhunt has a somewhat active Facebook group, which has over 83,000 members.

The group has some talking going on, but not a high amount if you compare it to what you would expect from a group that big.

This is not the most notable feature of Ecomhunt, but it is definitely worth mentioning, as you can find valuable information from the Facebook group regarding the platform itself and dropshipping.

My conclusion of Ecomhunt features

They have a lot of different product research tools, right?

I personally think Ecomhunt is a great all-in-one tool that can give you plenty of inspiration on what to sell.

Or for people that don’t have much experience yet with, for example, Facebook Ads. (If that’s you, then don’t forget to check out our complete Facebook Ads beginner’s guide here.)

Because of their Facebook targeting, for example. This way, you can learn a bit about who to target for what kind of product.

But, as I said above, please don’t copy everything from them. Otherwise, you’ll have a really hard time trying to be more unique than other dropshipping stores out there.

I don’t have exact numbers of the number of subscribers to Ecomhunt, but seeing that they have a lot of reviews and “gurus” talking about them on YouTube, it makes me think that they have enough subscribers to make a product “saturated” in a few days.

Keep in mind with “saturated” that I don’t mean the product itself but the combination of the product + the information that they provide (for example, the Facebook targeting, video ad, description, and so on).

Why?

Well, because a lot of dropshippers out there are lazy and came into this space to earn some “easy money” or “to get rich next week.”

This is sadly the truth because a lot of so-called “gurus” advertise dropshipping like this.

For example, they will show you videos of expensive cars and homes (which can easily be rented, so don’t get me started on this… I can go on for hours, haha).

But anyway, with that “awesome lifestyle picture,” they try to pursue you to purchase their dropshipping course.

And for the record, most of these dropshipping courses aren’t cheap either!

If you’re interested in learning more about these “gurus” and why they sell courses, then I suggest reading this article here.

Because this is a review of Ecomhunt, haha! Apologies for my rant about these “gurus”!

So, yes, I think the information that they provide with each product is great for dropshipping beginners!

I’ve got one more thing, though; I’m personally not 100% a fan of all the products that they include in Ecomhunt.

But that’s just my personal opinion. There are still some products there that look interesting!

Ecomhunt Review: Trial

Ecomhunt does offer you a trial. You can sign up for a free account, which you can use as long as you want.

The only thing is that the free account does have some limitations:

Limitations of the free Ecomhunt account

If you don’t want these limitations, then I suggest upgrading to their pro membership.

But it’s still great that you can try this product research tool without paying anything or risking any money!

Plus, as I said above, you can use the free account as long as you want!

You can click here to create a free Ecomhunt account!

Ecomhunt Review: Pricing

As I said above, they offer you a free trial account. This way, you can check out the tool for yourself. If you don’t like it, then you don’t have to pay anything!

The subscription price of Ecomhunt is currently $29, $49, or $89 per month. For the most expensive plan, there is a $20 discount available for the first month.

Pricing plans of Ecomhunt

Plus, they’ve got a 30-day money-back guarantee!

For any reason, you can cancel your plan within 30 days of purchase. This makes it fully risk-free to try Ecomhunt!

And they also included fast 24/7 live chat support!

Ecomhunt Review: Who Is It Ideal For?

So, is Ecomhunt worth your money? Do I recommend getting this product research tool?

I personally think this product research tool is perfect for these people:

  • People that are on a tight budget or don’t want to spend money on these kinds of tools. The great thing about Ecomhunt is that they have a free account option available for you. The only thing is that there are some limitations (as you saw above).
  • People that don’t know much about Facebook targeting yet. It’s nice that they include an example. Although, I’ve seen product research tools that include way more information than them, for example, Dropship Spy.
  • People that want to see a lot of product examples. They add a lot of products to their product research tool. That’s for sure. So, if you’re looking for inspiration or you just don’t know what to sell, then Ecomhunt could help you further!

I don’t suggest Ecomhunt for these people:

  • People that are lazy. Well, I guess it’s the perfect tool for you if you’re lazy, but please, if you’re lazy or don’t want to put any time or effort into your dropshipping store, then don’t subscribe to Ecomhunt. Otherwise, you will probably just copy their products with all their information.

    This way, you won’t have any chance of succeeding. Well, maybe if you’re lucky or skilled, but do you think you can “win” right now of a lot of dropshipping stores that have the same product and the same descriptions, images, and so on?

FAQs about EcomHunt

Is Ecomhunt legit?

Yes, Ecomhunt is legit. In fact, it is one of the most popular dropshipping research tools out there.

Is Ecomhunt hard to use?

Nope! With its new dashboard, users can easily navigate between different tools and pages, whether they are a beginner or advanced users.

Is Ecomhunt still frequently updated?

Yes, Ecomhunt is frequently updated. Among the latest updates are a new dashboard view and still unreleased tracker tools for Facebook and Shopify.

Ecomhunt alternatives

While Ecomhunt has a lot to offer, it has its cons, and in some areas, its competitors are better. That’s why I wanted to list some of the best alternatives.

I will go through these and highlight some of those “not so good” areas, so you can better decide what’s the right tool for you!

Let’s dive into the alternatives!

1. Sell The Trend

Home page of Sell The Trend

Sell The Trend is another great product research tool, and it is our choice for the best Ecomhunt alternative!

It is more of an all-in-one dropshipping solution, thanks to its ability to manage your orders and its great integrations with platforms such as Shopify.

On top of that, it comes with extensive tools for product research, such as its Nexus tool, which is an AI-powered algorithm that shows trending products across all ecommerce stores.

2. Dropship

Homepage of Dropship

Another great alternative is Dropship!

This product research tool is quite new on the market, as it was founded only two years ago!

It has quickly made its way to becoming one of the best product research tools, thanks to its large product database, great product research tool, and sales tracker.

Its prices range from $29 to $79 per month.

3. Dropship Spy

Home page of Dropship Spy

Like Ecomhunt, Dropship Spy is a winning product platform that gives you access to a large collection of dropshipping products in different niches.

Many of the features are similar to Ecomhunt, such as its AliExpress Winners research tool and Facebook Ads product research tool.

For those people that have no previous experience with advertising, I recommend Dropship Spy over Ecomhunt.

Why? Because they provide you with custom video ads, specialized Facebook audiences, and multiple ad copies, all of which Ecomhunt lacks.

If you want to learn more about Dropship Spy, and what it has to offer, we have made a full review of the platform.

Taking action

Reading and absorbing information and knowledge is great (definitely if it’s free!), but do you know what’s even better?

Taking action!

If you think EcomHunt is the right solution for you, here’s how to get started:

  • Sign up for Ecomhunt. You can get started with their free plan and eventually move up if you feel like it (they have a 30-day money-back guarantee for their paid plans).
  • Choose from one of their tools. At this point, you should know your goals with the platform, what niche you operate in, and your ideal price range for the product.
  • During the process, you should also have a store set up. If you need help with that, check out our guide on creating a Shopify store.
  • Test, test, and test. Dropshipping is all about testing. It’s rare that the first product will be the winner, so you have to be ready to invest some money and time into the testing process.

    Great Article!
    I feel No Shopify store is good enough and sells well until it has a range of well-researched products and Ecomhunt helps you find great products in no time. It gives you access to the winning products that are being sold by other drop shippers around the world. Since product research is such an important step in establishing a Shopify store, I feel Ecomhunt is a very helpful tool.
    I love your writing style and how you have added a short review for the busy people. That is very considerate. Besides, your review really breaks down Ecomhunt and explains everything in a very lucid and beginner friendly way.
    Will Look Forward to More Articles like This in the Future. Consider me a new Fan! =)
