Recommended Supplies

If you want to get serious about your eBay and/or Amazon business, I’ve made a list of supplies that could make your life a lot more easier. These are affiliate links, so if you use them, it helps me out. We appreciate all of your support. These are actual items that I use.

Zebra LP-2844

The first thing I suggest is the Zebra thermal printer. Although its got a hefty price tag for brand new, you can fetch one used on Amazon for $131.75. Eventually, this will save you a chunk of change because you don’t need ink for this, it uses thermal printing instead. This can be used for both eBay postage labels or labels for Amazon FBA.

Zebra Thermal Shipping Labels

These are the ones I use. The printer works wonders. It prints super duper fast. There self adhesive, so you just peel off and put right on your product.

If you do not feel like making a purchase of the thermal printer and labels right now and want to use your own printer, then I recommend is 1″x 2 5/8″ labels. Amazon suggest you use a laser printer or a thermal printer, but I’ve used my inkjet printer with out any problems. You get 3000 of these for $11. That would be 10 times more labels for a fraction of the cost if you were to buy them at Wal-Mart.

Bags For FBA Products

These bags are great for protecting Cd’s, DVDs, and lots of other items too. Use these to put your items in to protect them from Amazons warehouses.

You’ll need these for bags with an opening of 5 inches or more when sending them to Amazon.

Smart Weigh ACE110 Shipping Scale

I used to use a simple $15 Accuteck scale. But since I started sending bigger shipments to Amazon, this scale saved me so much time. I used to have to weigh 5-10 items at a time to accurately weigh my package.

Carton Reducer

I’ve been using this for a little while, and it saves you a lot of time, and potential headaches. We’ve all had those perfect sized boxes that way too deep. With this, you can set your own depth. Trust me, this is a nice time saver.

Tools For Removing Labels

I use this thing liberally. They are great for those pain in the ass stickers that stores use. The goo works amazing. You just put it on and leave it for about 15 minutes. Then you just heat up the label, and peel it right off.

Last but not least, I suggest getting the Unitech MS910 Scanfob. Theres lots of others ones out there, but I really like this one. The settings are fully customizable and the instructions make it really easy to understand. You can also connect it via bluetooth to your computer, so if your computer doesn’t have bluetooth I recommend buying a bluetooth adapter for your laptop or pc.

ANOTHER SCANNER THAT YOU MIGHT WANT:

This scanner connects to your computer and works great.  When you are listing your items into FBA it will save you a ton of time just scanning the item in.  You can use your bluetooth scanner if your computer has bluetooth build into it.  It is just a pain in the ass connecting it to your computer then connecting it to your phone.  With this you won’t need to do that.
