Keepa - Amazon Price Tracker is a browser extension for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Edge to improve your online shopping experience on the Amazon website.

Keepa was one of the extensions that we listed in our The best Amazon price trackers in 2017 overview, but we never reviewed it.

When should you buy a product on Amazon? Is the sales price really the cheapest price? What is the price on other Amazon sites the item is offered on, or on eBay? Keepa answers all of these questions and many more automatically.

The extension supports all Amazon sites and the interface languages English, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese.

Keepa's main features:

  • Access to the price history of items on Amazon.
  • Receive notifications when an item on Amazon drops below a set threshold without registration.
  • Compare international Amazon prices and the price on eBay.
  • Import your Amazon wishlist for easy tracking.

Keepa functions automatically; while it adds an icon to the browser toolbar on installation, you interact with the extension on Amazon directly.

It embeds information on Amazon product pages automatically. Just scroll down a bit to access the item's price history chart directly. It may include Amazon, Used and Warehouse deals, and displays the price history for each.

The default date range is set to three months which you may change to day, week, month, year or the entire price history available.

You can unlock other information on the page, for example, the sales rank or list price of items.

The interface is filled with links and options which may intimidate some users.  Hover over statistic to display the lowest, highest, current and average price of the item in the last 90 and 180 days.

A click on "compare Amazon prices" looks up the price of the item in other regional Amazon stores and displays price information in the interface; useful if you don't mind making purchases in those stores.

Keepa may display the new and used offer count, average rating and review count of the item next to all that.

Price Tracking on Amazon

Keepa supports price tracking so that you are notified if the price of an item you are interested in reaches a certain threshold. You may track prices on Amazon without account registration; great.

Click on the "track product" tab to start the process. You may set the price threshold for products offered directly by Amazon as well as new and used marketplace offers.

Select "start tracking" and on the next page to "continue as guest". Keepa supports the following tracking notification options:

  • Email.
  • Twitter.
  • Facebook Messenger.
  • Telegram Messenger.
  • Web Push Notifications.
  • Android app.
  • RSS Feed.

You may enable one or multiple channels individually. Keepa includes Lightning deals information  and will rearm the alert timer after 2 days by default. The latter allows you to receive product alerts even if a product was available for the desired price in the past and Keepa notified you about it.

Note that you may sign up for a free account on the Keepa website to better track the items that you are interested in and access other information such as data which adds additional information such as a list of all variations or versions of a product.

You may want to check out the extension's settings after installation to make sure everything is set up correctly.

You may change presets, for exampe to only display Amazon price information in the graph or change the tooltip date format.

You find a currency conversion option under add-on settings to automatically convert price information provided by Keepa to the selected currency.

Closing Words

Keepa is a well designed browser extension that improve your shopping experience on Amazon. You may use it to make sure you don't overpay for an item on Amazon without changing your workflow at all.

You may set up price notifications if the price of an item is too high at the point, and use one of the supported notification options to stay in the loop and make the purchase at the appropriate time.

The service's core options are all available without registration which I like a lot. Keepa supports other nice to have features such as price comparison (international Amazon stores and eBay), currency conversion, and plenty of customization settings.

Now You: Do you use price history or tracking services?

      Well it is a bit difficulty to distinguish between domains and files for instance.

    The comments section under this very article (3 comments) is identical to the comments section found under the following article:

    Not sure what the issue is, but have seen this issue under some other articles recently but did not report it back then.

    With the cloud, there is no such thing as unlimited storage or privacy. Stop relying on these tech scums. Purchase your own hardware and develop your own solutions.

      This is a certified reddit cringe moment. Hilarious how the article’s author tries to dress it up like it’s anything more than a png for doing the reddit corporation’s moderation work for free (or for bribes from companies and political groups)

    With Google Chrome, it’s only been 1,500 for some time now.

    Anyone who wants to force me in such a way into buying something that I can get elsewhere for free will certainly never see a single dime from my side. I don’t even know how stupid their marketing department is to impose these limits on users instead of offering a valuable product to the paying faction. But they don’t. Even if you pay, you get something that is also available for free elsewhere.

    The algorithm has also become less and less savvy in terms of e.g. English/German translations. It used to be that the bot could sort of sense what you were trying to say and put it into different colloquialisms, which was even fun because it was like, “I know what you’re trying to say here, how about…” Now it’s in parts too stupid to translate the simplest sentences correctly, and the suggestions it makes are at times as moronic as those made by Google Translations.

    If this is a deep-learning AI that learns from users’ translations and the phrases they choose most often – which, by the way, is a valuable, moneys worthwhile contribution of every free user to this project: They invest their time and texts, thereby providing the necessary data for the AI to do the thing as nicely as they brag about it in the first place – alas, the more unprofessional users discovered the translator, the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, the greater the aggregate of linguistically illiterate users has become, and the worse the language of this deep-learning bot has become, as it now learns the drivel of every Tom, Dick and Harry out there, which is why I now get their Mickey Mouse language as suggestions: the inane language of people who can barely spell the alphabet, it seems.

    And as a thank you for our time and effort in helping them and their AI learn, they’ve lowered the limit from what was once 5,000 to now 1,500…? A big “fuck off” from here for that! Not a brass farthing from me for this attitude and behaviour, not in a hundred years.
