Profit Bandit Scholarship for Ecommerce Kids

At SCOE last week, we met Monica Busby. She’s got a great story! She’s currently running programs in 4 cities for young people who want to sell on Amazon.

She’s working with 40 kids, as young as 9 years old. Recently one had a month of over $5,000 in sales.

We were especially excited when she told us that they were all using Profit Bandit! And we thought kids today just used Yik-Yak, Snap Chat and Doodlerific (OK, I made that last one up).

We think ecommerce should be accessible to everyone. Here at Profit Bandit, we’re sponsoring a $250 Scholarship that will let one student attend Ecommerce Kids free of charge.

We’ll also provide a free year of Profit Bandit.

Monica’s next Ecommerce Kids Workshop will take place from May 20-24 in Valencia, California. If you’re interested in applying for the scholarship, email your story to

We’re really excited to be part of this!
