Frequently Asked Questions

How does ScanDroid Pro locate all of these product finds every day?

ScanDroid Pro is a fully automated online sourcing service that scans retail store websites to compare retail store pricing on thousands of products per day to Amazon retail prices.

How often do they update product finds?

Every day! We don't even take the weekends off!

How will I receive my latest product finds?

The product finds are added to your account every day. All you need to do to access them is log in with your email address and password.

At what time can I expect to receive my daily finds?

All product finds are available by 9am PST (noon EST).

In which categories are the products listed on Amazon?

The products come from several different Amazon ungated categories including toys, kitchen items, sporting goods, home improvement, etc... Some of the products are in gated categories, including groceries and health and beauty.

Can you use ScanDroid Pro for retail arbitrage too?

Yes. Many of the online retail stores where the products are listed allow you to check nearby brick & mortar stores to see if they have any of that product in inventory.

How do I subscribe to this amazing online sourcing service?

It is a 2 step process:
  1. Go to our subscribe page and select a subscription model that suits your business needs and budget. Then create an account - all we need is your name, email, and a password.
  2. After you create your account you will automatically return to the subscription page to select your desired subscription plan. Click on the corresponding PayPal button and your account will be charged every 30 days after your 7 day free trial.

How does the 7 day free trial work?

After you submit your PayPal information you will not be charged for 7 days. You can use this time to try out ScanDroid Pro to determine if it fits your needs. On the 7th day after you sign up you will be charged for the first month and every month thereafter on the same date. If you decide that ScanDroid Pro does not fit your needs then simply cancel your subscription in PayPal.

Can I subscribe to multiple plans for more daily product finds?

Yes, you can select 2 subscription plans for a maximum of 35 product finds per day. However, please note that there may be a couple of duplicate product finds uploaded to your account if you select 2 subscriptions.

Can I change subscription plans at any time?

Yes. Simply cancel your current subscription and then subscribe to another one on the subscription page

Sometimes the retail price of my product find does not match what is on the store website or Amazon. Why is that?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to price changes: deals can expire quickly, the store sale ended, product sells out, etc… Because the product finds are randomly assigned you may receive a product that was scanned 2 days ago and the price may have fluctuated since that time.

How long do product finds stay in my queue?

You will have access to your product finds as long as your account is active. The product finds that are listed go back 6 months. Beyond that you will need to search by title or store. If you have a particular product find that you want to revisit later then we recommend using the “Favorite” button.

How can I report products that do not match the Amazon listing?

Use the Flag button to report mismatched products, or email us at with the title of the products.

Is there a way to create a list of my favorite product finds?

Absolutely! Use the “Favorite” button on the bottom right of every product listing and it will save it in your Favorites list. To access your Favorites list simply click on the Products drop down menu on the home page and click Favorites.

Will I get products which are brand or category restricted?

Amazon restricts some seller accounts from selling certain brands and categories/sub-categories of products. The restrictions are based on your account performance and account status. Newer sellers may find they're restricted from selling many popular brands, while those selling for longer periods of time with good performance metrics will get approved to sell most brands. Because we have no way of knowing your seller account status, you may receive products that are initially restricted for you account. You can check to see if you're restricted for the product by clicking the "Restricted?" button on each product. It will take you to a page in your Seller Central account which will let you know if you're can sell the product or if you're restricted. If it shows you're restricted, you can click the "Request Approval" button and you may be automatically approved if your account is in good standing. If you're not automatically approved, you can work to get approved by submitting the required documentation.

How do I cancel my subscription?

To cancel your subscription, please login to your account and use the Unsubscribe button on the My Subscriptions page. Your subscription will remain active until your next billing day. Once your subscription is cancelled, you will no longer have access to that product list.
