Why Is Jungle Scout Market Closing?
As of the publication of this blog, Jungle Scout Market has not identified a reason for the sudden closure. After further questioning, their staff supplied no answers or details, only stating that "At this time, there is no plan to sell to a third party."

Regardless of the reasoning, the short notice has Amazon Sellers scrambling to get connected with high level Amazon Marketing Agencies and experts before October.
