Fujitsu ScanSnap IX500 Scanner For Amazon & Ebay Sellers

So I recently took the plunge and ordered my very own Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 Scanner(PA03656-B005). After watching a few video reviews I determined that this would be one of the best decisions I ever made for my business.

If you have been following me then you may know that one of the big reasons I shifted to primarily selling on Amazon was because of the time commitment that Ebay took. With Amazon FBA I was able to outsource so much of the low skill labor. My dream has always been to sell vintage, antique, and unique as my business, but as my Ebay business grew, I realized that in order to grow I needed to either hire a helper, deal with higher dollar priced items, or find some way to process my listings and orders faster! I fell in love with books because they were easy to acquire cheap, could be sent into Amazon FBA easily, and be sold for a huge profit. Not only that, but I could get tons of them on any given day!

I don’t want to be selling only on Amazon though, I want to sell on Ebay too. One other consideration, a primary reason that I temporarily put Ebay on hold, is because I moved into a much smaller apartment and now space is really a concern. All things considered, I have been thinking of an item that I can sell that is light weight, small, unique and has potential to be fairly valuable. I came to the conclusion that selling photographs and assorted paper ephemera type items might just be exactly the answer that I was looking for.


I had experimented in the past with scanners, flatbed scanners to be specific, but they had always been slow, clunky, and quite disappointing. I had always thought that it would be awesome if I had an easier way to manage my receipts and miscellaneous paperwork as well. Don’t you wish you could just effortlessly create super high quality scans of all of your important paperwork and receipts? Up until now it has only been a frustrating dream. I did not want to spend a bunch of money on a good scanner just to manage my paperwork after all! With this decision to jump into the exciting world of selling vintage and antique paper and photographs I am not able to get all of the benefits that I want while justifying the time spent processing these items. I bet I could list hundreds of photographs in a day fairly easily. Wouldn’t you say? Best of all, no more heaping piles of receipts to keep track of!

I wanted to just cover some of the incredible features of this beast and let you be the judge. I am not suggesting that this scanner is for everyone, or even that many people who will read this blog, but I will say that if you want to invest in your business in a way that will save you time and money, and you are ready to shell out the money for a top of the line product, then you will not be disappointed.

Some important things to consider:
1) It’s the most popular and highest rated scanner in the market
2) It’s about the size of a large loaf of bread and is folds up very compact.
3) It scans both sides of a document or image at the same time
4) It works on PC or Mac and it can scan directly export to an Iphone/Ipad and Android devices
5) It can scan 25 pages per minute (smaller documents or photographs are even faster)
6) It’s very quiet!
7) It comes with Adobe Acrobat X ($200 value)

If you are looking for an incredible solution then you should strongly consider looking into buying your own Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 Scanner(PA03656-B005).
