Partial to profit? If you like making money on Amazon, then you need an Amazon scouting app like Profit Bandit. Find out what the best-value real-time Amazon sourcing tool on the market can do for you. With or without an Amazon pro merchant account.
We often come across Pro Merchants who’ve never used an Amazon sourcing tool like Profit Bandit. And we feel it’s our duty to let Amazon sellers know that, whether they have an individual account or a pro seller subscription, they’d do well to use an Amazon scouting app.
Profit Bandit shows you real-time data, so you’re one step ahead of the competition.
It relays data from Keepa, CamelCamelCamel, and other marketplaces.
It lets you know if products or brands come with restrictions on Amazon. And it gives you a much broader perspective over a product than other Amazon sellers have.
Profit Bandit App Evolution Over Time
Back in 2012, we announced that Profit Bandit became part of the suite of SellerEngine software tools. And even though Profit Bandit keeps a pretty low profile when it comes to Advertising is a means of communication … More, we’ve been busy adding features to it and growing its user base ever since, with dedicated developers and support crew.
So, over the past couple of years, Profit Bandit has changed a lot. We’ve made it compatible with various platforms, marketplaces, fulfillment channels, software tools, and hardware. And we’ve been busy showing Amazon sellers how to:
- Connect with Android or iOS
- Scan with a Bluetooth scanner
- Use the built-in camera scanner
- Access it for new Amazon venues
- Use the Restricted Items alert
- Set up Profit Bandit for FBA
We then stepped it up a notch and released some unique features. We made a version of Profit Bandit available to Individual sellers as well (Non Pro Merchant sellers), and we decked it with clever tools. So, scouts can look things up without even having an Amazon Pro Merchant account. And they can also use the scan history feature too.
So, let’s go over some of the basics of setting up and using an Amazon Non-Pro Merchant account with Profit Bandit.
The Non-Pro Merchant Version
Q: Why was the Non-Pro Merchant version developed?
This update will let people without an Amazon Pro Merchant account – or any Amazon seller account, for that matter – sign into Profit Bandit. We developed it because Amazon sellers pointed out to us that they need Profit Bandit all the time. Even if they don’t have a Pro Merchant account, or they can’t log into it.
Q: Does it have all the features from the Pro Merchant version of the app?
The Non-Pro Merchant version doesn’t give you access to some of Profit Bandit’s best-loved features.
So, you can’t see the Buy List or access Search Results from other websites. And you can’t use Vibration Alerts or the Batch Scan Mode.
But it does display The sales rank of products on Amazon ind… More and Price History graphs:
Q: How does it maximize ROI and Profits?
Unlike other Amazon scouting apps, Profit Bandit displays lowest prices for both the New and the Used category, fulfilled via MFN and FBA. It also makes it easy to instantly work out both the Profit and the maximum ROI. Simply use the slide next to the “Profit display type” field. These features are available for Pro and Non-Pro users alike.
Q: Is it available to sellers on all venues?
The Non-Pro Merchant version of Profit Bandit app is currently available for the USA venue only. However, the version dedicated to Amazon Pro Merchant sellers is available for these venues: USA, CA, UK, DE, ES, IT, FR, AU.
Q: How do I choose the Non-Pro Merchant version when I install the app?
