USE INVENTORY NUMBERS -Each item gets assigned an inventory # example A0001, A0002, A0003 etc.. the letter designates the year A=2015 B=2016 etc…
USE A DATABASE-I add the the inventory # to my data base inventory listing system (I use tap forms) Tap forms is a customizable database for Apple its comparable to Microsoft Access. I like this database because it syncs between my iPad, iPhone and iMac seamlessly using iCloud or wifi which gives me the ability to view or update on any device. Its like your own custom Garagesale or ink frog listing tool you can access of line.
ASSIGNED INVENTORY LOCATIONS-each item gets put into a box or placed in a location, that location or box is recorded in the Tap Forms database.
USE EBAY ITEM NUMBERS-when I list an item on eBay I copy and paste the 12 digit eBay item # into my database, I don’t use eBay SKU field I use eBay item # because it is easy to find, for what every reason does not put the SKU field in the shipping screen (go figure). when an item sells eBay puts the item # first thing in the shipping label screen copy and past that number into your search screen on your database and it will bring up your item and is location.
USE META DATA ON YOUR PHOTOS-dont bother with iPhoto albums just use meta data every photo I take gets tagged with meta data I add the inventory # title and location to all my photos When you add your photos to your listing in eBay just type the item inventory # in the search field and it will bring up the photos for that item.
This is a very scalable system that works great nothing gets lost and it is very flexible and it can be used offline.
