Amazon FBA Financing
Looking to finance your inventory? Kim personally uses the Chase Ink Business Unlimited Credit Card that offers 1.5% cash back on all purchases plus $500 Bonus Cash Back after you spend $3,000. 0% APR for first 12 months. No annual fee.
Also, most of the online stores that we source products from also offer deferred billing so you can buy now and pay later. We recommend using this directory of buy now, pay later stores to search for stores that offer financing.
We know the people at Blue Trust Loans and recommend them if you’re looking for an installment loan (which is a better alternative to payday loans). Blue Trust Loans can deposit up to $2,500 into your bank account as soon as today. Apply now!
Amazon FBA Prepping
Here is a list of supplies that will make your life of prepping inventory for Amazon FBA easier!
- Scotty Peelers – these help remove clearance price stickers easily.
- Clear Round Stickers – for product boxes that don’t stay shut (looks more professional than tape)
- Thank You Labels – if you can’t get all of the price tags off or rip the packaging while doing so, cover up the blemish with these labels.
- Polybags – make sure the bags you use have suffocation labels; if not, you can buy them, too.

Amazon FBA Software Tools
Successful FBAers pay for several tools to save time and make more money. Most tools offer a discount if you pay yearly instead of monthly.
- AZ Labels – This Chrome extension formats your product and shipping labels and works great if you use Dymo printers.
- BQool – This integrates with your Amazon account (and Inventory Lab, see below) and reprices your items to maximize profit and sales.
- Inventory Lab – This keeps track of all of the expenses associated with each item by taking into account Amazon’s fees and shipping costs to see the return on investment percentage of each item. It also comes with the Scoutify app for your phone that is more robust than the Amazon seller app. And this service makes it easy to add new items in bulk.
- JoeLister – This automatically lists your Amazon products on Ebay and handles fulfullment and dropshipping from Amazon when sold.
- Neat – In conjunction with a Neat receipt scanner, Neat saves all of your receipts (paper and email) and makes the PDFs searchable so you can look up prices of purchases.
- RevSeller – Chrome extension that shows sales rank, category and profitability at top of every Amazon product page.
