Special Functions & Alerts Settings for iPhone

Below Profit Bandit's FBA Settings, you'll find Special Functions & Alerts menus:


Shake to Scan

If this option is enabled, you can shake your iPhone to open your camera and scan a barcode. Great for one-handed scanning.

Batch Scan Mode

When Batch Scan Mode is enabled, Profit Bandit will save the barcodes you scan to history for review at a later time.

Pre-load CCC and ALL FBAScanner app selection

By default, Profit Bandit preloads the CamelCamelCamel page and the FBA offers page for the items you scan. This is done in the background and does not slow you down while scanning.

This does slightly increase the amount of data Profit Bandit uses. To conserve data, disable this option.

Scanner app selection

Profit Bandit contains the option to switch between three barcode scanning apps:

  • Native - Default and built-in the app;
  • ZBar - Built-in to your iPhone/iPad;
  • Pic2Shop - Free downloadable app.

Sales Rank Vibrate Alerts

This feature will make your iPhone vibrate if you scan an item with a Sales Rank below a certain threshold.

Profit Vibrate Alert

This feature will make your iPhone vibrate if you scan an item with a profit above a threshold that you can set.

Important Note: Vibration functions do not work on any iPad, iPod or iPad Mini.
