The product idea score is a summation of the results generated by a search done in one of our sourcing tools. It takes into account possible monthly sales, reviews needed to sell well, and sales patterns. Each score rates the product on a scale of 1-5 stars. 5 stars being the best and 1 star being the worst.

This is a good way to quickly decide if you should further research a product, but it shouldn't be the only metric used. Consider all possible costs, sales trends, and inventory restrictions when deciding what to source as well.
