These extremely reasonable fees wouldn’t mean anything without good Support.

We have been testing it out and their support has been very good.
Quick response on Facebook and e-mail response within 24 hours (or less).

Profit Bandit shows the usual info: title, rank, category, # of sellers. It also shows COLLECTIBLE items (very useful for “used” games) and will calculate your profit/loss.

You can enter your Buy Cost and Your Sell Price. Profit Bandit will then take into account all fees which you can see in detail. It will even factor in oversize fees.

Easily search other websites from within the Profit Bandit App. This is useful for doing further research for making a buying decision. The item info is pre-populated into the site when you click on it. You don’t have to type in your item info. See info from CamelCamelCamel, eBay and more!

    This sounds great. Much cheaper than the other scouting app I’ve been reading about. One question. I keep reading that a scanner costs around $300. Where can I get it for $49?

    Thanks for the info!

      The $49 Fee is for a service that connects a scanfob to a smart phone. The scanfob will run you about $300.

    I am just starting to learn about FBA and was wondering if I can use this or any other app to scan items in Canada? If so…would I be sending them to or can I send to one of the fulfillment centres from Canada? Thanks.
