We have created our own listing software if you choose to use. You can list around a hundred books per hour once everything has been sorted by the condition. After cleaning, organize books into stacks based on thier condition. Any book with a special note (includes cd) should be scanned at the end. These will take more time to list and saving these for last will help keep the labels all in the right sequence. Have the books faced down with the barcodes up. Scan the book, verify it is the correct cover art then place the book down again with the barcode facing down. You are recreating the exact order of the stack in reverse. When labels are printed you’ll find every book in the same order as the labels. You should not have to spend time hunting for books while labeling if you do this correctly.
Use price as a place-marker to organize your work before shipping. The place-marker prices help you identify scanning sessions. This is useful when multiple people are scanning books into inventory at the same time. Person one is scanning books at 400, person two 401, person three 402 and so on. You can then use the price filter search option to find the books that belong in specific shipments. This helps you to know which books to add to a shipment.
Condition notes are your form of customer service as an FBA seller. Make sure you do this part well. All books should have a condition note. Customers want to know what they are buying. The better the condition note the more likely the book will be purchased. When grading books, we separate and put the books into stacks based on the conditions below.
Note: We also take note if there is an included CD or Missing CD. We write this on a post-it note and cover the barcode as a reminder. These books are put aside and scanned last with the tag (CD included) or (CD missing).
Here are examples of condition notes that you can use or alter to fit your needs. If there is a CD or Access code be sure to add (CD Included) or (Access Code Included) before the general description if you’d like. This may entice customers to buy your copy over competitors.
