Our Story – Chris Green and Paul Retherford, Co-Founders of ScanPower
In August of 2009, an Amazon seller who needed a better way to list FBA inventory met up with a programmer who was looking to start a new company.
Today, they are still business partners and the company is called ScanPower.
In a world filled with inventory management tools and Windows Mobile based scouting tools, ScanPower offered new, innovative features that were simply not offered by anyone.
ScanPower was the FIRST to offer individual and instant FBA label printing.
ScanPower was the FIRST to offer ‘FBA Net’ prices (price + shipping) for scouting, listing, and repricing.
ScanPower was the FIRST to include FBA offers for scouting, listing, and repricing.
ScanPower was the FIRST to offer mobile scouting apps for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.
ScanPower continues to set to standard when it comes to providing the specific data that today’s online sellers need.
Chris Green has been selling online since 1999 and has sold over 2.5 million dollars worth of products on eBay and Amazon combined. His highest year of sales was over $600,000 on eBay and his single highest Amazon 2-week payout was over $30,000. He even wrote a book about the business of buying and selling online called Arbitrage (available from Amazon in book and Kindle formats).
Today, Chris enjoys teaching, writing, and speaking about Amazon, FBA, and online selling in general as well as developing additional features for the ScanPower suite of programs.
