Vendoo for Crossposting
If you want to start cross posting items on different marketplaces, then you’re going to want to save time by using a cross posting tool like Vendoo. This is literally my favorite seller tool for Ebay, Poshmark and Mercari! With Vendoo you can quickly and easily post items on Ebay, Poshmark, Mercari, Etsy, Depop, and Grailed. They also have an import tool so you can pull your existing items into their website to cross post. It literally saves me hours when I have a lot of items to post on different platforms.
Why would you want to cross post? The more people you can get your item in front of, the more likely it is to sell. So if you want to sell more items, faster? Crossposting is the way to go.
There is a free subscription available to try it out, but you can also use this link to get 25% off your first month! (affiliate link)
Bookkeeping Software for Taxes
If you’re serious at all about reselling, you really do need to have some sort of bookkeeping system in place. The easiest way to go about this is to subscribe to an affordable bookkeeping software like GoDaddy or Quickbooks. They can pull in your transactions from your bank which will save you tons of time. Personally, I’ve been using GoDaddy for years so I’ve just stuck with it. However, my CPA recommends Quickbooks so I’ll allow you to decide which you’d like to work with because both are great options.
Reseller Dashboard for staying organized
Staying organized when you have inventory starting to take over your house can be tricky! I created the Reseller Dashboard a couple of years ago to try and keep my own inventory organized and keep track of my sales, cost of goods, etc. This is a great option for someone who wants to be able to see all of their numbers and be able to keep track of where their inventory is located, sales on different platforms, mileage and more. You can grab it here for $6 off.
Reseller Assistant for Sharing on Poshmark
This one is exclusively for Poshmark sellers! Reseller Assistant (affiliate link) is hands down my favorite tool for selling on Poshmark. It’s not really a tool so much as a Poshmark sharing service, but I totally think it’s worth it. If you’ve been selling on Poshmark for any length of time, you’ll know that sharing your closet is a big part of getting your items sold. You’ll probably also know how tedious and time consuming it can be to share your closet multiple times a day.
When I found Reseller Assistant I was so happy to have someone else start sharing my closet for me! Anytime I used Reseller Assistant my closet actually got shared and my sales were always higher to the point where it more than covered the cost of having Reseller Assistant share for me. If you find that you don’t have the time to share your closet on Poshmark, I recommend investing in having Reseller Assistant do it for you while you focus on sourcing inventory and listing it and see if it significantly increases your sales the way it did for me.
Background eraser for white backgrounds
Having clean, bright photos is one of the most important aspects to attracting customers to buy your products. Sometimes it’s not possible to have a perfectly clear, bright photo. Luckily there are tools out there for erasing backgrounds so that you can have that beautiful, flawless white background that you desire. Removebg is a website that will remove backgrounds from your images for free!
Checkaflip and sellhound for research
The best as far as Poshmark and Ebay seller research tools are Checkaflip and SellHound. When you’re selling items it’s always important to do research to see what you should price it at as well as to help you get ideas for keywords to include in your titles. Checkaflip pulls current and completed listings from ebay giving you the average prices as well as the percentage that sold. Another website is SellHound which gives similar stats but on multiple websites like Ebay, Mercari, Poshmark, and more.
Dropbox for photo storage
If you need a way to store your photos so that they can be accessed on your phone and on your computer, then I recommend giving Dropbox a try. If you’re an apple user you can just airdrop photos from one device to another, but if not sometimes it can be tricky figuring out how to get photos between your devices quickly. They do have a free account where you get 2GB of storage, plus you’ll get an extra 500MB when you use my referral link.
Dymo Label Printer for printing labels
When you first get started this is definitely not a necessity. I actually used to just print labels on plain paper and taped it onto my packages when I started. But once you have a little money to invest and you have several packages being mailed out daily, it can be nice to have a label printer. I use a Dymo 4XL label printer along with Dymo compatible labels. I actually purchased mine back in 2017 and still use it to this day. Because it’s a thermal printer, you’ll never need ink! You just need to buy the labels and you’re good to go.
Lighting for better photos
If you don’t have a spot in your home with good lighting, buying some sort of lighting kit can make a huge difference in the quality of your photos. Remember, your job when taking photos isn’t just to take the photo of the item. It’s to take photos that are going to sell the item to your potential buyer. The more bright, clear, and appealing your photos are the more you increase the chances of your item selling. Because of space constraints I currently use this ring light. It works well for smaller items and most pieces of clothing. The only clothing items I have trouble lighting up evenly are long items like overalls or maxi dresses. However, it still does the job well. If you have a large space dedicated to taking photos these are a great option, they’re just very large and need to be set back away from the items so it’s best if you have a dedicated office or space.
It’s true, you don’t need any of these tools in order to resell. But as you grow your business and want to focus more on the activities that make the most money in your business, it’s nice to be able to save time and increase sales using some of these tools for Poshmark and Ebay seller tools.
