Imagine being back in school and the teacher assigns a group project. Great, you think. During the last group project you got stuck doing all the work and stayed up late just to get an average project finished. There goes another free weekend.
The teacher randomly assigns the group members this time. All of a sudden all of your fears turn into joy. You just hit the jackpot. You got Ricky Pendergast on your team.
Ricky is one of those kids that hasn’t seen a B on his report card since he was in third grade. He’s trying to get into Harvard and has to maintain some ridiculous GPA, so there’s no way this project can fail.
Ricky calls an initial meeting where he passes around a quick document outlining your very meager contributions to this guaranteed A project - all things you can get done in an hour. Ricky promises to complete the rest of it. Your weekend just started to look a lot better.
That same confident, carefree feeling that Ricky gave you in school, you can also get when you use a great restocking software for your Amazon e-commerce business.
What RestockPro Does For You
When you use RestockPro, you only have a few things to enter to restock your Amazon store.
First you input your suppliers, their location details, and the lead time they need to process orders.
Then, download a CSV template from RestockPro where you enter all your SKUs, case rules, and cost. You can also input your fees for shipping and repackaging so that RestockPro can figure out your estimated margin.
That’s it. Your job is over. Time to sit back and let Ricky do his thing.
Just like Ricky, RestockPro is going to do most of the heavy work at this point, and you can count on perfect quality too. For each SKU, you will instantly get:
The continuously updated New Buy Box Price
The average 7 day price
The number of FBA and NonFBA sellers
The lowest price of FBA and NonFBA sellers
Sales velocity over 2 days, 7 days, 30 days, and 90 days
Then the real brilliance kicks in. RestockPro will calculate your estimated margin on each SKU, download your current FBA inventory at or on its way to Amazon’s warehouses, and give you instant restocking suggestions including what to reorder from your suppliers and what you already have in your local inventory that needs to be shipped.
Sheesh, Ricky. Chill out.
If you are used to gathering all this information manually and relying on intuition to know when to restock, you can just imagine the kind of time and accuracy you will gain from having something like RestockPro in your toolkit.
Get Ricky on your Team, Every Time
Having Ricky in your group was great in high school. Having him in your business every day is even better. You can try RestockPro out for free, but don’t be surprised if you start to get used to the idea of someone else doing all the heavy work for you.
