Here is a list of my favorite tools for my Amazon FBA book business. Some links contain affiliate links. If you purchase, I will get a small commission at no extra cost to you.
Desktop Barcode Scanner
The Zebra LS2208 Desktop Scanner is used for listing purposes. Not for scouting. Works perfect for any 3rd party listing program like ScanLister. Just plug the USB cord into your computer and start scanning books!
This is a great scale for weighing your FBA boxes. Max weight is 440 pounds on this scale. It also has a long extendable cord so you can read the package weight.
Label and Sticker Remover
Use these tools to remove those pesky price tag stickers from your books. No need to use your fingernails anymore.
This Brother printer works great to print your 30-up FBA labels and FBA shipping labels. There is also a wifi version as well.
You can print these 30 at a time (30-up) with your laser printer. Print these directly from your Amazon seller account. No 3rd party software needed.
Thermal Label Printer
Some people prefer to use a label printer to print FBA labels. A third party program is needed to use this printer like List Label Ship, ScanLister, Inventory Lab, etc. One of the advantages of a thermal printer is that you don't have to buy ink.
The Socket 8ci scanner fits perfectly on the back of any smart phone. This scanner is used in the field to scan books at library sales, thrift stores, etc. I've been using this for over 2 years, and I've never had a problem with it.
Smart Phone (Samsung Galaxy S5)
If you don't have a smart phone or don't want to use yours for scouting, you can easily buy a used or refurbished one. You don't need a contract or a data plan. More on that later.
Socket Klip Case
The Universal Klip enables you to securely attach the Socket 8ci scanner to a smartphone, thereby providing a one-handed scanning solution. The special 3M adhesive strip allows easy attachment to protective cases & devices. If you buy the 8ci scanner new, this klip case will be included.
