A smartphone is a must have if you want to sell successfully on Amazon. And if you have one, there are a few apps that are a must have if you want to make money. If you don’t want to be wasting your hard earned money on useless items, then I suggest giving these apps a shot!
Amazon seller app
This app is for both iOS and Android phones for free. This app allows you to scan items, and it will give you the sales rank, how many FBA sellers there are, how much you would get after fees and much much more. I use this app all the time when I’m out sourcing for books and other items.
garage sale finder
With Garage and yard sale season in full season since last weekend, this app is a must. This app allows you to find garage sales around you. You can get directions using Google Maps. This is for iOS, not too sure about Android devices. Since I’m from Wisconsin, our garage sale season is only about 3-4 months of the year due to the freezing weather we have the other 8-9 months of the year.
I love this app. This app allows you to make a to-do list and it syncs with your laptop, tablet, and phone. Its free for both iOS and Android devices. I use this app after a long day of sourcing, and I don’t feel like listing right away.
I have a bigger inventory on Amazon than I do on eBay. But I still look for stuff to sell on eBay. Mostly being coffee mugs. The eBay app allows you to research items while your out sourcing, just like the Amazon one.
This app is perfect if your selling on eBay. Not only does it tell you when you receive payment, but it will show you the stores around you that accept PayPal a form of paying. This is great if you want to treat reselling as more of a business, and want to keep accounts separate.
PayPal card reader
The PayPal here is a simple credit card reader for your phone or tablet. If you ever have to host a yard sale for the items that have not sold on eBay, this app is for you. How many garage sales do you see that accept credit or debit cards? That’s right. None. They’ll send you a free card reader that would plug in simply to your headphone jack. They charge a 2.7% fee though.
Hope this helped! Until next time!
