If you missed my first and second posts in my ASellerTool bookscouting series, then you may want to read, “Sell Used Books And Toys With ASellerTool–First & Second Updates In Series.”
If you don’t feel like reading the first two posts in the ASellerTool series, and you need to get familiar with what ASellerTool does, then read, “Use This Tool To Make Money Selling Books, DVD’s, And CD’s!”
Since I’ve been selling used books (and sometimes new books–see my post, “I Just Got Paid $40 An Hour To Shop At Barnes & Noble!“) for about two years now, I’ve accumulated a lot of books in my house. And if you sell used books online, it’s imperative that you do a sweep of your inventory every so often. Some experts say every six months, some say once a year. However, with the ASellerTool, you can quickly scan your inventory as often as you like without taking up too much of your time.
Book rankings change on Amazon daily (even hourly), which means that a book that ranked well and would sell quickly on Amazon one day, may fall out of favor the next day. This means sellers start dropping their prices to entice buyers to buy. Often, bigger sellers are just looking to clear inventory as fast as they can, so will discount their books until they sell. Sometimes that means selling books for $.01, and just making a little money on shipping.

What does this mean for small sellers looking to make more than one or two dollars profit per sale? It means keeping up-to-date on their inventory, and making sure that their books are priced right to sell, or cleaned out of their inventory all together to make room for books that command a higher price.
The ASellerTool makes this possible by allowing you to quickly scan your books in inventory and get rid of the books that aren’t worth selling, and making sure the books that are worth selling, are priced right.
[ebay “handheld scanner”] Does it make sense to invest in a PDA and handheld scanner along with a monthly subscription to ASellerTool? You need to decide that for yourself. One of the things to ask yourself is, “What’s my time worth?”
If you’re just dabbling in selling used books online on Amazon and/or eBay, then you may want to get your feet wet a little bit first to see if you like the business. To me, there’s no better small, home-based business to start, to see almost immediate income (see my post, “Selling Used Books On Amazon For Profit–Great Home Business!“).
Once you decide you like the used book selling business, then my advice would be to seriously investigate ASellerTool. This service will help your business tremendously, not only in helping you find the right books to sell for profit, but also in helping you keep your inventory fresh and up-to-date.
