Busy resellers are delighted to see how quickly and easily they can list, crosspost, & relist using Vendoo. Having a tool that helps you run your business efficiently gives you more free time to work on other parts of your business and spend more time with friends and family.
However, if you’ve mainly been using Vendoo only to crosspost and relist, then you’ve only scratched the surface of all this software can do. Here are five things Vendoo can do that you probably didn’t know about.
1. Create Drafts On The Go With Your Smartphone
“Does Vendoo have an app?” This is one of the top questions the Vendoo team gets asked. While an app is a future possibility, there are several ways you can use Vendoo on your smartphone right now, even without an app.
First of all, if you use your phone to take and edit your photos, then you’re in luck because you can easily upload photos and create drafts on the Vendoo website using your mobile browser. Simply open the web browser on your smartphone and go to www.vendoo.co. You’ll be able to create a new draft, upload your photos right from your camera roll, and enter in as much or as little information as you want. Personally, I like to create drafts with just the photo and title then go back and enter the rest of the information on my laptop.
From the mobile website, you can also post items to eBay and Etsy, because these platforms do not require our Chrome plugin to work. You’ll have to crosspost to all other platforms using a laptop for now.
One last amazing thing you can do on Vendoo using a mobile device is check in on your analytics! If you’re out thrifting and want to know what your top-selling brand was last month, now that information is right there with you at all times.
2. Keep Track Of Tasks, Special Inventory, Consignment, Or Anything Else You Can Think Of Using Custom Labels
Everyone has their own business model when it comes to reselling, which is part of what makes this community so interesting! Vendoo recently released a feature that allows you to create custom labels for your inventory. You can create up to 50 custom labels to help you organize your inventory.
Here are some examples of how you can use custom labels, but the possibilities are endless:
Labels for inventory lots and clients if you take inventory on consignment.
Add a label to the inventory you want to put on sale or liquidate.
Create a label to mark the inventory you want to take new photos of.
Sort inventory by where it was sourced using labels.
Keep track of inventory and sales made from specific mystery boxes, pallets, wholesale companies, etc.

3. Download A CSV File To Dive Deep Into Your Data
Any savvy business owner will tell you, data is the most important thing to keep track of if you want to succeed. Vendoo has a powerful and easy-to-use analytics tool built right in to help you discover your best-selling items, platforms, keep track of sales goals, and more.
If you love a good spreadsheet and want easy access to 100% of your data inside Vendoo, then you’re in luck. You can download a CSV file to use in any spreadsheet program. You can customize the time frame and what data you want to pull, or you can just pull it all into one report.
You can access the CVS file in your Vendoo settings. For a detailed walkthrough, we have a YouTube video you can watch as well. Pulling your data into a spreadsheet that you have full control over is a very powerful tool that can help you make smarter business decisions.

4. Add Extra Listings On A Busy Month
Vendoo’s pricing comes with tiered plans based on the number of items you list per month. Using this model helps keep prices low for newer or part-time resellers while allowing you to scale your plan along with your business as it grows. So, what happens if you run out of items on your plan towards the end of a month and you still have more items to list? You can easily purchase 20 more items at a time for a few bucks without changing your monthly subscription. You can also change plans each month depending on your workload. If you’re going on a long vacation, you can drop down a tier. If you’re getting a large amount of inventory soon, go up a tier. Now you never have to worry about running out of items or paying for items you don’t need.
