The analytics tools (dashboard screenshot embedded above) will help authors track and compare sales.  The dashboard measures “revenues, downloads, ratings, reviews and rankings” in both these stores, along with downloadable reports.  Here’s more about the marketplace tools, from the release:

“Store Stats” offers customers the ability to examine eBook marketplace dynamics, measured through rankings, ratings and featured sections across geography, category and time. With a comprehensive database of over one million ranked eBooks, Store Stats makes in-depth market research easy and convenient, aggregating the world’s eBooks store data into one place.
