Selling on Amazon can be a profitable business, however, it can also be tricky without the right tools! If you’re looking for a way to streamline your workflow and maximize your earning potential, then InventoryLab has you covered. In this post, we’ll explore the top 4 InventoryLab features every seller should master: Buy List Import, Bulk Edit Tool, Total Cost Calculator, and Unlisted Inventory. By learning to use these tools correctly, you can save time, and maximize your InventoryLab subscription.

1. Buy List Import

IL’s Buy List Import feature is a great way to list your products quickly and efficiently! By importing your saved Scoutify Buy List or creating and uploading your own with a .CSV file, you can easily add your products to a batch and get them listed in a matter of minutes!

When using the Scoutify2 app for this process, you can simply add all of your accounting details for the product before adding it to your desired buy list. By including your accounting information, you can seamlessly list your products without having to remember to include these essential details later when you’re ready to sell. 

Do you like to work with a team when sourcing with Scoutify? If so, you can create individual lists for each employee to add their products to. This will help your team stay organized and boost efficiency when it’s time to import.

Additionally, if you already have your information saved in a spreadsheet, you can easily import a .CSV file. See this Buy List Import Template to input your product information before uploading your items to a batch.


2. The Bulk Edit Tool

The Bulk Edit tool can save you a lot of time when managing the accounting for your inventory, especially items with replenishments. It makes it easy to edit accounting information while updating multiple inventory items at once. To begin, select the items you would like to edit/update and enter them in the live open draft. You can then take the following actions to make changes to your inventory:


-Add or delete replenishment rows

-Copy/paste information across multiple rows directly from a spreadsheet

-Reset MSKU changes

-Add or remove products from the open draft to edit more items at a glance



Looking to collaborate for an even speedier process? This feature also allows for an unlimited number of employees to join the open draft to make all the necessary updates!

3. Total Cost Calculator

Not a fan of math? The Total Cost Calculator allows you to track the full scope of your item costs. By inputting the costs associated with your purchase, you can accurately calculate your true total cost. To use this tool, take the steps to enable the feature in your settings. When it’s time to list your products, you will then have the option to use the Total Cost Calculator and enter the following information:


-Cost per unit


-Sales tax

-Other costs included with your purchase 


Take advantage of the Total Cost Calculator and eliminate the extra step of having to account for these costs separately. We are confident that this will save you time and ensure accurate accounting! Click here for more information on how to use this tool.

Finally, if you need to account for local inventory that you’re not quite ready to sell, look no further than our Unlisted Inventory page!
