17 Reseller Apps You Can’t Live Without

Reselling? There’s an app for that.

 

In fact, there are many apps that save time and increase efficiency for resellers. As a multi-platform e-commerce seller, I use apps for photo-editing, business management, pricing and listing, and for sourcing inventory and supplies! Here are some of the best apps for resellers and small business owners:

 

Must Have Photo-Editing Apps for Resellers:

 

1. Photoroom

PhotoRoom is a game changer. Photoroom is a background removing app that can be used to create flawless photos. The app removes the background in images in just seconds, giving you clean and stunning photographs with maximized SEO. Photoroom also features thousands of creative backgrounds and the ability to upload your own image as a background. With Photoroom, you can take your photos anywhere and create perfect listings.

 

Photoroom is a free app, but I highly recommend subscribing to the pro version to remove the watermark and give you the bulk-editing feature for only $47 for the entire year!

2. Adobe Lightroom

Adobe Lightroom is a professional photo-editing, camera, and photoshop app for professional and high-quality images. Lightroom offers settings and filters for live photography and powerful photo-editing capability. The Lightroom editing software is superb, and the presets are amazing. This app is designed for photographers and does everything as far as editing and adjustment. I love using presets for my modeled cover photos and social media posts. Adobe Lightroom offers a free trial

3. Snapseed

Snapseed is another amazing photo-editing app. Snapseed offers advanced photo editing, adjustment, and filtering. Snapseed features a brush tool by which you can manually select the areas to edit, creating stunning and professional results. Snapseed also offers very professional text overlay formats for signs, graphics, and advertisements.

4. PicTapGo

PicTapGo is an efficient and very powerful photo-editing app. PicTapgo is super quick and easy to use, offering basic adjustments to light, contrast, color, and warmth, which is really all we need for listing images. It also has some basic filters. The “Lights On” Filter is my favorite-It really brightens up images without making them too bright.

5. Vendoo

Vendoo is the ultimate tool for ecommerce sellers. Use Vendoo to easily crosslist your inventory on multiple marketplaces, store and manage your inventory, record all profit and revenue tracking, and access business analytics across platforms. Vendoo has become a one-stop shop for managing my reselling business! Vendoo currently features eBay, Poshmark, Mercari, Facebook Marketplace, Tradesy, Etsy, Grailed, Depop, and Kidizen with more coming soon!

 

6. Canva

Canva is an amazing app for professional graphics, advertisements, virtual signs and notes, and social media marketing. Canva has thousands of graphics to select from which can be entirely customized.

 

On the pro version, you can create your own custom brand kit with brand colors, fonts, and your logo.

7. PicCollage

PicCollage is a collage app which provides countless aesthetically pleasing collage formats for any number of images. I use PicCollage to create collages when additional photos are necessary in my listings. I also use PicCollage to reformat rectangular images into square mode.

8. InShot

InShot is my favorite app for editing videos. I use it for my listing videos on Poshmark and Depop, and also to create my content for social media like Instagram reels. Inshot allows you to edit the size and speed of videos, and also to add transition effects, music, text, and filters without a watermark!

My Favorite Apps for Reseller Business Management:

 

9. GoodNotes

GoodNotes is my favorite app of all time. I use it for note taking, to-do lists, scheduling, recording measurements, and book-keeping. I use GoodNotes for everything, not just reselling. It is essentially a virtual notebook, with hundreds of templates and the ability to organize information in various formats, charts, tables, files and folders. GoodNotes works with an Apple iPad and an Apple pencil. It can be downloaded on the Apple App Store here.    

 

10. Microsoft To Do

Microsoft To Do is another amazing app for business management. The app allows you to make countless lists, organized by category and urgency. To Do assists with task management and organization in a much more efficient way than the standard “notes” app found on most smartphones.

 

Download it here on the Apple App Store. 

Download it here on the Google Play Store. 

If Microsoft isn’t for you, there are many alternative list-making apps available for download.

 

11. QuickBooks

QuickBooks Self-Employed is an incredible app for small business owners. It tracks expenses, receipts, calculates mileage, and suggests potential deductions. QuickBooks Self-Employed makes book-keeping and tax preparation so simple! I highly recommend this app for reseller book-keeping. If you use Turbo Tax, you can use QuickBooks Self Employed for free!

Reseller Apps for Listing Inventory

 

12. Sellhound

SellHound is an app that a reseller cannot live without. SellHound is designed for pricing assistance by generating comparable “comps” research. On SellHound, you can type in your item and see the current average asking price and average sold price for your items. Sellhound’s Precise Pricer tool uses real-time data from listings on Poshmark, eBay, Mercari, Tradesy, Etsy, Grailed and others. Rather than conducting research on each platform separately (or conducting a Google search), Sellhound provides information from all of the resale platforms, calculating an average and powerful pricing suggestion.

 

Sellhound is now offering listing services as well, with maximized search engine optimization (SEO) and many subscription models.

 

Did you know that Vendoo has partnered with Sellhound to offer the Reseller Price Checker? There are more features from Sellhound being incorporated into Vendoo soon!

13. Size.ly

Size.ly is an amazing program for resellers, which creates size charts for your clothing inventory in just seconds. The app generates a sketch of an item with lines to show where the measurements are taken. For example, the app will generate a clip art image of a pair of jeans including all measurements and arrows to indicate what they are. You can use this image for your reference when listing or upload it right into the listing as an image. This reduces confusion in measurements, and also saves time in typing them all out!

 

Remember that for some measurements, such as waist and inseam on bottoms, you might want to type them out fully in your description to enhance SEO. Some measurements are frequently searched in search forums such as “32 Waist.”

 

Size.ly is not technically an app but can be accessed and used from your phone’s mobile web browser.

 

14. Google Lens

Google Lens is one of my top apps, I use it every day! Google Lens is a reverse image searching app where you can search the web by picture. That is, I can search by photograph in my inventory. Google Lens is an amazing app for reseller comp research, determining retail value, finding stock images, and researching information about your item (by finding it posted on retail sites to utilize the language in their descriptions). This app has truly been a game changer for my reselling business.

 

Google Lens demonstrates how photographs can maximize SEO. The reason so many resellers use a plain, lightly-colored background is because image search engines prefer it!

Best Apps for Reseller Supplies & Sourcing

 

15. Yard Sale Traasure Map

Yard Sale Treasure Map is a helpful app for sourcing items to resell! I use Yard Sale Treasure Map to plan my yard sale sourcing adventures. On the app, you can search by day, location, distance, and keyword, to find the location and description of yard sales, garage sales, and estate sales. It features a GPS system to navigate your route, providing directions to each sale methodologically.

16. FLYP:

FLYP is a revolutionary app for resellers to source. FLYP connects consigners with pro-sellers to sell their inventory. I use FLYP in both ways. As a consigner, I send off my excess inventory for another reseller to sell for me, generating a passive income. As a pro-seller, I am sent free inventory to sell for someone else, at no cost to me!

 

FLYP is easy to use. As a consigner, you:

  1. Photograph your items;
  2. Get matched with a pro-seller (and review their pricing estimate and policy);
  3. Send the items with a prepaid shipping label; and
  4. Sit back and get paid!

 

As a Pro-Seller, you:

  1. Apply to be a pro-seller here;
  2. Establish your commission rate;
  3. Apply to lots of your choice, providing revenue estimates based upon the lot; and
  4. Receive the items, list and sell!

 

FLYP is an amazing opportunity for resellers who have time constraints, or do not have access to sourcing premium inventory. It is also an excellent way to raise funds to grow your business without investing money upfront!

17. Rakuten

Rakuten (formerly called Ebates) is another incredible app, offering cash back every time you shop (at 2,500 participating stores). With Rakuten, you can earn cash back for your Amazon reseller supplies! I use Rakuten daily, for personal use as well as my reselling business. Rakuten is simple to use, and totally free! Rakuten offers coupon and promo codes as well!

 

Sounds “skeptical”? No, it is totally legit, and it has been around since the late 1990s.  Stores pay Rakuten a commission for featuring their store and driving customers and business. In turn, Rakuten gives a percentage (of the money they are paid by stores) to the app user as a reward. I have earned thousands of dollars on Rakuten! Sign up here.

 

Tip: Install the Rakuten chrome extension on your computer and earn cash back effortlessly.

Some of these apps are free, and others require subscription. If you are like me, you hesitate to spend $4.99 on an app (but no hesitation for a $6 coffee at Starbucks, hehe). While an app might not be as tangible as a vanilla late, remember that all business requires overhead costs and software systems. Do not be afraid to invest in your business.  Also, the applications you purchase for your business are tax deductible. Applications that save you time are saving you money.

 

Most of the apps offer a free trial. Be sure to try them out! If the app isn’t for you, just keep an eye on the subscription date to cancel prior to billing.
