helium 10 dashboard financial overview

Here is a list of what you can see in the financial overview:

  • Today’s Gross Sales: this includes yesterday’s and today’s gross sales. Also, the change in sales is displayed to view the difference between the two days.

Viewing Today’s Gross Sales and Today’s Orders is ironically better for keeping an eye on the performance for the previous day. That’s because it’s more useful to understand how much you sold in a single day, rather than at a random point throughout the day.

Profit Summary

The Profit Summary is in beta at the time of writing, and offers a treasure trove of information. At first glance, the widget offers insight into your entire Amazon account, but you can also specify the period and product if you want to access data on a more granular level.

Start by entering a keyword, or get keyword suggestions from the “What’s Trending on Pinterest?” section. Once you have selected a keyword and the marketplace where you want to search, click on the blue “Search” button.

We recommend you get familiar with the live chat bubble since it’s the primary method of communicating with Helium 10 customer support. That’s because no phone number is available – even for paying members.

Helium 10 Facebook Members Group

At the bottom of the dashboard, you’ll see an icon that takes you to the Helium 10 Facebook members group page.

To help you avoid getting lost and hit the ground running with the dashboard, here are some top tips:

How Does the Helium 10 Dashboard Change Between Pricing Plans?

The Helium 10 dashboard doesn’t change between pricing plans, therefore you can expect the same experience whether you have subscribed to the Starter, Platinum or Diamond plan.

However, the dashboard can change when you sync your Amazon or Walmart data with Helium 10. For example, you’ll receive financial data such as gross sales and units sold.

Finally, the Helium 10 dashboard can change when you use tools like Keyword Tracker. 

That’s because you’ll see information such as product listing rankings for specific keywords.

How Do I View My Amazon Data on the Helium 10 Dashboard?

To view your Amazon data on the Helium 10 dashboard, connect your Amazon and Helium 10 accounts. This simple process can be done in just a few minutes. Check out our guide on the Profits tool, for the step-by-step process on connecting the two accounts.

Once the two accounts are connected, you’ll need to wait up to 24 hours for the data to sync. After that, your dashboard becomes populated with new data as it’s streaming from your Amazon Seller Central account. It’s a handy shortcut, meaning you can view your business’s financial health directly in Helium 10.

Our Experience Using the Helium 10 Dashboard?

To give you a deeper insight into what to expect from the Helium 10 dashboard, we decided to try it ourselves. Firstly, we loved the features that allow you to stream account data to various widgets.

For example, the financial data allows us to monitor sales and the number of units sold without heading over to the Profits tool. This is handy when I want to glance at the update while doing other tasks on the dashboard. Also, I tend to glance over the keyword rankings updates to ensure no significant drop in rankings.

However, the dashboard can look a bit overwhelming at first, and finding some features takes a lot of scrolling down the page. Also, we noticed that some widgets are in beta, including the Profit Summary. This indicates that Helium 10 is constantly improving and adding to the dashboard, which is a good sign.
