Have you ever used a little black book? Something you grab when you’re searching for an address or a phone number or an email from ten years ago? Maybe, or maybe the only black book you’ve ever owned is an iPhone. Well, when it comes to retail arbitrage, your secret weapon actually comes in a little black box. It’s called a Symcode Barcode scanner, and, if used correctly, can save you precious time and money in your retail arbitrage outings.
How It Works
For just $50, you can double or triple your retail arbitrage productivity. All you have to do is connect the scanner to your phone, hit the button, and watch as it scans every barcode.
How To Connect
To get going, grab the user manual, conveniently included with every scanner. First, flip to the page that explains how to match your phone system with the Bluetooth enabled PC terminal. Once you scan that barcode printed on that same page, the system will connect to your phone.
So turn on your scanner and get it into Bluetooth pairing mode. To do so, click the power button and hold down the button below for eight seconds. You’ll know it’s in the correct mode when the lights start flashing.
Next, head into the Bluetooth settings on your phone (in a different spot depending on whether you’ve got an Android or an iPhone) and click on pair new device. Your phone should find the Symcode Barcode scanner. Select the label that says Symcode Barcode HID and there you go, you’re all set and connected. You’ll know the device is connected when the lights stop flashing.
How To Use
Now open your app of choice – Todd uses Scoutify – and use the scanner to scan the barcode of any given product. From the barcode, apps like Scoutify will immediately pull valuable Amazon info so you can make the best product choices possible, fast.
For even faster retail arbitrage, try velcroing the scanner to the outside of your phone case and scan with just one hand.
Doubling or tripling your purchases per store may sound like a fantasy. With the Symcode Barcode scanner, that fantasy becomes a reality. Hopefully this tutorial inspired you to take your retail arbitrage game to the next level. Once you start building that momentum on Amazon, anything is possible.
As always, happy selling everybody.
