Christina Haftman: how did you get that COOL background ?? love it
dean castello: if they had it for windows phone 8 and or 8 tablet platform id be on it
Jon Obrian: How is this different from the Amazon app with camera, scanner
and manual search ?
Kate Mihailoff: Thanks for the great info! I clicked the free bootcamp link,,,It is not
Muneer Adhami: Hi Rob. So I'm torn whether to just use the Neatopricer app on my android
or get a PDA with scanner. My phone currently sucks battery life very very
quickly. I have to carry around 2-3 batteries while i'm scanning. I can't
continue just using Profit bandit. So 2 questions: 1. When i'm using the
neatopricer app, it still uses the camera correct? 2. Can i buy any pda
with windows 5/6 and attach the socket scanner such as:
Your help is appreciated.
Drew Forester: Why do you prefer the PDA for books over the Bluetooth scanner?
Laszlo Nagy: Yes I need a phone with scanner so I kniow what I can sell it for I
usually sell what I can if I can't sellit I give people free Cd or
dved But make sura you have a profit on what you selling . Easy to do but
I do not have a scenner yet. Its an app they call it I do not know much
about it you have to have a cell phone.
Matthew Thorne: Great video Rob! What is the attachment that fits onto the Dell PDA?
Also I have looked at the Neatoscan website. Some of the prices are very
high. What is the cheapest option to read the Amazon database on a PDA?
Andrea Campione: I am trying to determine why one would add a scanner to Profit Bandit.
Does a scanner make the whole process quicker than the "shake and scan"
feature on Profit Bandit?
James W.: Hi, how long with a Dell X51 PDA battery last if constantly scanning?
recon cat: Hi Rob
You mentioned that when you use a scan fob, you wrap it around your wrist
and scan items ...you said "people don't even know what I'm doing".
I just wonder if scanning is not allowed in the store? Is there any store
you went to and the store don't let you scan? Thank you in advance for your
iProducts Info: Hi, Really Nice the products.
videodude123XYZ: It would be nice if they made a scanfob or similar product that connects
directly to the phone - just like with the database option. It seems like
being able to hold the product in one hand and phone/scanner in the other
would make for much faster scanning.
DollarMoves: Hey that's AWESOME! I'm glad you enjoyed the video! Thanks for watching and
taking the time to comment! Stay tuned to my channel as I will be sharing
some new videos with new great information about scanning tools in the NEAR
FUTURE! Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: upgrade might cost...you'd be surprised how cheap they have become (you can
pay month to month and as you go now). I would just "get your feet wet"
with the least amount of technology that you can in the beginning as you
are deciding if this business venture is something that you could see
yourself doing continuously...THEN buy all of the cool laser scanners:)
Right now you have more time than money...build it slow with what you have
until your business can afford your upgrades! Good Luck! -Rob
DollarMoves: Yeah, I realize that I didn't show the power of the scanning app in the
best light on that example as I had the small keyboard on my phone at that
time (I currently have a keyboard with larger buttons for faster speed) and
I wanted to show that you can type in the ISBN's and UPC's manually in the
app. If you look at the top of the app you can see a microphone icon that
you can actually speak the ISBN/UPC #'s into and it is MUCH FASTER! Thanks
for watching and commenting! Take Care -Rob
Michael Blankenship: Hello Rob, I have a Scanfob 2002 that I use with my Droid phone. Im looking
into getting a Dell Axim x51v. Do you know if i can pair my Scanfob 2002
with the PDA or do I have to use a socketscanner? Any information would be
great. Thanks, Michael
DollarMoves: Hi there! If your smartphone has a camera on it it SHOULD work as a
scanner. You can contact the app developers to see if they have had any
issues with your specific phone or if your phone doesn't work with their
app. I have heard of people using the prepaid phones. I hope your phone
works and you can get out there and start "scouting"! Thanks for watching
and commenting! Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: that describes the system that I use for my businesses bookkeeping (PS my
CPA LOVES it and it gives me great information on the pulse of my
business). The next video is: "FREE and LOW COST Business Help!" That talks
about resources that can help with your business. It also points you in the
right direction to find local professionals (CPA's, lawyers, etc.) that are
referred by local business owners. I will put a link to the videos in the
description of the above video.
Summer Moeller: I'm trying to understand the main difference between the Axim and Scanfob..
I understand that the Axim uses a database that is downloaded for a monthly
fee, and does not require any internet access to use. I'm not clear on is
how the Scanfob works. Do you have to have to be hookied up to the internet
on your smartphone, or can you also download a database to your iphone and
work offline? If so, how would a slow connection speed affect the scanning
DollarMoves: Hello. I really haven't had any issues scanning but I just don't like to
bring attention to my scanning...it's really the other shoppers that I try
to avoid! People get so curious what I am doing that they like to talk
about it and it can really make a scouting trip unproductive. When I am
scanning I really just avoid eye contact with most people as I am there to
work:) I have heard of some places that don't like scanning but I think
it's probably because of people leaving messes. Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: Hi there. Yes, most of the videos on my channel are slanted to FBA (when it
comes to selling on Amazon) as that business model was the easiest to work
around my busy lifestyle. I cannot recommend a piece of software that works
good those who ship their own products as that is not the focus of my
business. Maybe try doing a Google search for software (or phone apps) that
does what you are looking for. Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: Hi there. You are charged for them to store your products at their
warehouse (not much at all) and then they charge you to pick, pack and
ship. There are various fee's for selling via FBA but they do not "hide"
those fee's and are quite up front with everything. You can google "FBA
calculator" to see what the fee's of merchant fulfilling an item VS.
FBA'ing an item would cost. The calculator breaks down all fee's included.
Thanks for watching and commenting! Take Care -Rob
Aaron Hoffman: You know what would be a great video that I haven't seen anyone cover in
any forum? Have a few products that you scan using fbascout, and explain
how you determine a winner. Tell us what you paid for the item, too. Each
category has a popularity ranking, so what are your cutoffs for each? What
makes you decide what to pull the trigger on? I'm not sure what the data
DollarMoves: Hi there, you are very welcome! I think that selling books would be the
perfect business for a college student...fyi textbooks are CASH! Being
around all of those textbooks puts you in the perfect position to take
advantage of that opportunity (if you aren't already)! I understand that
you would like a video about taxes but I pay my CPA to take care of that
side of my business. I have 2 videos you would be interested in: "Basic
Esales Bookkeeping Spreadsheet" System for Online Sellers
Craig Nelson: I'm reading that ranking is important. Does FBA Power give ranking
information too? I saw on your video that Netoscan had ranking.
DollarMoves: Hi there. There are no cheaper bluetooth scanners that I recommend (or am
familiar with) but some people are using this one: Unitech MS910. If you
google "Profit Bandit Bluetooth scanners" a blog post that Paul at Profit
Bandit did on laser scanners. They DO NOT RECOMMEND the Unitech MS910 (and
they share the reason why in the blog post) but you can purchase it for
around $150 on Amazon. I would recommend using your camera on your phone
and purchase the ScanFob with Profits. Take Care -Rob
Begbucks: 7:48 Too slow, but swell review.
Joshua Smith: LoL,, have you ever had a store associate come up to you and tap you on the
shoulder, and say "sir, sir, what are you doing, sir"? lol :)
PersianPrideTime: Also gettin Neatoscan once scanner comes in. And hey ill use your email
address so You & I can get a free month, so glad i ran into your channel 2
weeks ago.. If you have an affiliate link for PAC ill use that so you can
get some cash for helpin me out.
Alvin Graham: hey just got into this tell me how do you know from the range what books to
buy and sell what is the best range I got a scanner from a next company and
I see books with like a 56000 and 3300 range that are rejected
rosstaylor1979: Thanks Rob. I've emailled them and will let you know of the results.
cyndi531: Hey Rob, Just stumbled on your videos. Very informative! I plan on starting
off selling books and media; what would be the best scanner/phone you would
recommend seeing I could only invest in one at the moment (btw, I dont have
a smartphone). I was thinking about just getting web access on my cheap
AT&T phone considering I'm on a tight budget. If you you have any advice
regarding this that would be great. Thanks so much for the info! You
inspired me that this can be done! Take care, ~Zed
Lesley Wilson: Hi Rob, do you know how good the Scanfob works with Profit Bandit?
MV V: Hi, thanks for all the great videos. I have a quick question regarding
liability insurance. Can you please recommend a company that provides
liability insurance for amazon and ebay sellers? The regular business
insurance doesn't seem to cover them, only limited website sales. I wonder
how the pros deal with this. Thanks so much.
DollarMoves: Hi There! Yes, ScanPower (formerly FBAPower) does give ranking information.
It also shows Amazon price and also the quantity that FBA sellers have in
their inventory at Amazon! ScanPower is my main scanning tool for buying
"retail arbitrage" new products from stores while NeatoScan is my "go to"
scanning tool for "thrifting/books" as it is FAST and works great in that
situation. I am currently working with Profit Bandit and will share my
findings in the future. Take Care! -Rob
MelaniesMusings: Why do you prefer scanpower for retail arbitrage? I'm curious as to what
advantages it has over neatoscan.
Joshua Hilton: Hey Rob, thanks for the awesome videos! Have a quick question, I bought the
Axim x51v and the socket scanner for it (plugs into the top), and I've
tried to download Windows Mobile Device Center on a computer running, both
Windows 7, and 8, both to no avail. It is optimized for Vista. Are you
using Vista? Because I have no way of getting Vista, and the PDA is
worthless to me until I get it figured out. Should I just sell it and go
with a bluetooth scanner? Thanks!
DollarMoves: Hi there, and thanks for the compliment! I am glad you are finding value in
them! I do not have any recommendations regarding insurance but I have
added a link (under the video in the description) to a VERY INFORMATIVE
PODCAST about insurance and Amazon. Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: Thanks! You are TOTALLY WELCOME! THANK YOU for watching and taking the time
to comment on the video! Take Care -Rob
Michael Pagan: Hi can you post the link to buy the scan fob 2002 I am a newbie thank you
JacobbrianS: FBA this FBA that, what does it do for someone who houses and ships their
own product? Does either program have the power to tell you what you make
after fees and credits on the fly?
DollarMoves: Hello! I know that ScanPower had a FBA scouting app that was UK
friendly...email support@scanpower(dot)com and ask about the app. I looked
on their website but was unable to find the info. I would appreciate if you
would reply to this comment with what you find out about ANY UK FBA
SCOUTING APPS you find to help the others here that live in the UK! Thanks!
Take Care -Rob
DollarMoves: I have never tried "ScoutPal" but have had very good luck with Neatoscan's
information being accurate for my Dell Axim PDA. You should try it out...
Take Care -Rob
3rdPlanIt: There is excellence in your explications and your advice is SUPER
informative. Thank you much!
DollarMoves: Hey there. You are very welcome for the video on scouting! If you check
some of the other videos on my channel you will see that I have made others
(the one I put out last night was about the Profit Bandit App) that are
about scanning and the apps that I use. I no longer use my Axim 51v since
NeatoScan came out with "NeatoPricer" phone app! I use the ScanFob 2002
(will be updating to 2005) currently and it is GREAT! I have only used the
ScanFob. Thanks for watching and commenting! Take Care -Rob
CustomReid: does amazon charge any extra for the FBA???
DollarMoves: Hi there! The scanfob is just a bluetooth laser that connects to your smart
phone. On your smart phone you run a phone app that is connected to the
internet. 2 of the apps that I use are "ScanPower" and also "Profit Bandit"
and both can be used on either Android devices or I-Phone's. So far there
are no apps that download the database AND connect to the internet. If you
have a slow connection (or more importantly weak signal) it will be slow to
not working at all. That is why I have both! -Rob
DollarMoves: Thanks! You are too! I appreciate you watching and commenting! If you are
thinking about going the "PDA" route make sure to watch my newer video
titled: "Amazon Database App For Your SmartPhone! No Internet OR PDA!" Take
DollarMoves: Hi there. I am happy that you found the video helpful and SUPER
Informative! You my friend, are VERY WELCOME! Take Care -Rob
