General ScanLister Functions
How do I price my Items using ScanLister?
There are a few options.
1) You can use a repricer to automatically price your items. Repriceit.com is a very good program and it starts at $10/month.
2) You can use the “Match Low Price” feature on your Amazon seller account. You can select up to 200 items at a time and automatically match the lowest competitor’s price for FBA or Merchant Fulfilled.
3) You can price as you list. Click on the “show prime” button on ScanLister and it will show all the FBA offers for that product. You can also click on the product picture, and it will open a new browser and show the Amazon listing for that product. As a result, you will see your competitor’s prices, and you can make your pricing decision from there.
Can I change the information after it is scanned into ScanLister?
Yes, you can edit the condition, condition notes, price, SKU number, etc.
Can I use ScanLister on more than one computer?
Yes. After you make the purchase, you will receive five license keys. Therefore, you can use ScanLister on up to five computers.
Does the scanner that's shown in the video come with the software?
No, the desktop scanner is sold separately. Any desktop scanner with a USB cord will work. The one in the video is called the Motorola Symbol LS2208 Scanner. A more inexpensive option is the Taotronics TT-BS003 which you can get for around $35 on Amazon.
I am a Merchant Fulfilled seller. Can I still use ScanLister?
Absolutely. Many ScanLister users are merchant fulfilled sellers. We also have a merchant fulfiled ticket system to help you located your sales on your book shelves.
Is it possible to use this software without scanner and manually input the ISBN numbers?
Yes, you can manually type in the ISBN, UPC, or ASIN number. We also have a batch listing feature where you can import many ISBN numbers from a spreadsheet.
What if a book does not have a barcode or an ISBN number?
Search for the exact title on Amazon’s site. Find the ASIN number on the product page and copy & paste that into ScanLister.
Or if you are using the Windows version, you can use our new “search by keyword” function.
Does ScanLister work on other Amazon marketplace outside the US?
Yes, ScanLister works on Amazon US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, and Spain.
When I click on the "List on Amazon" button my items are not showing up in my inventory. Any suggestions?
Please check the upload status on your Amazon account. Go to inventory — add product via upload — monitor upload status. Check and see if there were any errors. If any errors, please send us the processing report so we can diagnose.
I'm getting the following error message, "Request signature is too far in the future..." How do I fix this?
Please make sure the time, date, and time zone on your computer are correct.
When I scan the barcode of a paperback book, the wrong title shows up on ScanLister.
If you are scanning a mass market paperback book (the small pocket size ones), please scan the barcode on the inside of the front cover. The barcode on the back of the book will not work.
My FBA Labels are not printing the in the same order that I listed them. What am I doing wrong?
f you are an FBA seller and you want your labels to print in the same order that you listed them, you will need to adjust your SKU. Amazon sorts the SKUs in your FBA shipment alpha-numerically. In other words, you will want your sequence near the beginning of the SKU.
In this example, the FBA labels will print out in the same order as listed since supplier is constant and the sequence is next.
However, if you put in the condition in the beginning, the labels will print out in a different order:
In this case, Amazon will sort the SKU that starts with “A” first.
Please watch this video on how to build custom SKUs with ScanLister.
