Amazon changes its product prices nearly 200 times a year and prices can fluctuate around 250%. The price of Amazon products may fluctuate every 15 minutes. It depends upon various factors such as when the seller alter the price, the festival offers, demand for the product, competitors change the product price etc,
Even Amazon can change the price of a product for a single user based on the user search. For example, if you are searching for similar products daily on Amazon then you would have got a mail from Amazon with similar products at an offer price. Isn’t it?
This is how Amazon sustains the market for the long term!
Without wasting any more time, let’s see how Amazon automated price tracer works.

How does Amazon price alert tracker work?
In the previous post, I’ve written an Excel macro to scrape Amazon product prices from websites. But this Amazon price tracker is the most advanced, accurate, and efficient since we are tracking the price on Google sheets integrated with Amazon API and send you an automated email when the product price drops.
As of now, it was built only for the Amazon US market,
It’ll watch the Amazon products prices every day and send you an email containing the list of products that are selling at offer price/low price. So, you can buy/ add products to your cart directly from the mail.
Here is the sample email
I’ve basically designed two version of Amazon price tracker. Freemium version for ordinary buyers and Premium version for professional buyers/sellers.
With freemium Amazon price tracker, you can track up to 30 Amazon Products. With premium, you can track up to 300 Amazon product prices.
As of now, it’ll work only for Amazon US marketplace. If you want to implement the same for other marketplaces kindly contact me.
Note: When you are buying the Amazon price tracker, please give the email ID that you are using frequently so whenever I add the new features to the tracker you’ll be notified.
How to get Amazon price alert in Google Sheets?
When you click on the link (either Freemium or Premium), you have popped up asking email ID to send the detailed document and Payment (only for premium) to complete the purchase.
Once you are done, you can check your email for an attachment with details to copy the Amazon price tracker on your drive.

How to Set Up Amazon price alert tracker?
There are few things you need to do on the Spreadsheet before you put Amazon price alert to work. It’s very simple and just one-time setup. Here are the steps
Go to “Settings” tab. That’ll be the first sheet on the tracker. Enter your Name on B1 and enter email ID that you want to get price alert.
Now go to ASIN tab. Enter the ASIN of the product that you want to monitor.
What is ASIN?
ASIN stands for Amazon Standard Identification Number. It’s a 10-character alphanumeric unique identifier that’s assigned by Amazon.com and its partners. It’s used for product-identification within Amazon.com organization.
Where can I find the ASIN for my Products?
It’s simple. Just go this product and scroll down the Product information page. Otherwise, you can use search option (Ctr l+ F) and type “ASIN” on your browser. You can find ASIN as shown below. Just copy and put it on Column A of ASIN tab.
Go to carts or wish list that contains the products you want to buy in future. You can copy those product ASINs and put it in the first column of ASIN tab. Finally, your sheet will look like below
You can find “Amazon price alert tracker” menu button. Click that and it’ll display drop down as shown below. Click the “First Run” option to initialize the script. Alternatively, you can also click on the button “Click here for the first-time run” in the ASIN tab.
Now, you need to give authorization by clicking continue button
Select the Gmail account for authorization
Sometimes, you’ll get pop up like this for verification as we are connecting to Amazon API (Google consider this as the third-party app). Click the advanced link and select “Go to APT” link.
Now you want to give access to the Script to connect with Amazon API, your Gmail for sending email on behalf of you to the Email ID entered in the settings tab and automatically run scripts every day on the server side. Click “Allow” to proceed further.
That’s it, you are done! Your script will run for the first time and show you the results on the ASIN and for confirmation, you’ll get an email as well.
