Isn't Scouting About Books?

It was, and here's why:

Books were easy!

Books were easy to find (cheap)

Easy to analyze (barcodes or ISBNs)

Easy to store (small)

Easy to list (Amazon)

Easy to ship (Media Mail)
Enter FBAScout and FBA



FBAScout lets you see prices for all items, not
just books and media
FBA gives you virtually unlimited storage space
No need to restrict yourself to a small portion of
the Amazon catalog
+
Every Store has Opportunities!
Compare Used Books To Retail
Think of it this way: you have your scout, you drive to a thrift
store, poke around, scan some items, and find a book that
will give you $20 profit.
You buy that book. ONE BOOK.
Now, in that same amount of time that it took you to go out
and find one book, you could have found one product from
any number of retail stores that would yield that same $20
profit.
But here’s the kicker: you put 16 units in your cart.
16 times more profit for the same amount of work. Live in a
big city? Go to another store and buy the same item again.
Sell out on Amazon? Go buy more and replenish.
The Ultimate Arbitrage Tool
Arbitrage is the practice of taking advantage of a
price difference between two or more markets:
striking a combination of matching deals that
capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being
the difference between the market prices.

RETAIL ARBITRAGE
Don't Discriminate!

Don't think of yourself as a 'book scouter'
anymore
With FBAScout, you're an 'anything that is
profitable scouter'
Only one requirement: Profitability!

If Not On Amazon At All...

Consider adding it to the Amazon catalog

Be the first to sell the item

Be the only seller (no competition)
House Brands



Exclusives not available on Amazon
Often heavily advertised, but not all customers
are able to buy (location, sold out)
Amazon buyers want to buy from Amazon
Cult Classics

Regional Products

“Gotta-have” products
Let It Sink In

Opportunities are all around you
Books and media are good sources of money
makers, but look to expand
