Internet Bookselling News & Views, Issue #00 - PDA Barcode Accessories
November 11, 2012

November 11, 2012

This week I've been focused on helping new booksellers understand how helpful their PDA barcode scanners can be to their business.

The latest article discusses the essential accessories needed to get the most benefit from your equipment. My recommendations are based on the last six years I've spent book scouting on a daily basis, six days a week.

I've tried many different pieces of equipment, and not just scanners. I picked out the very best and wrote short summaries on each one so you can know why they're all essential.

You can read my analysis by clicking this link: essential barcode scanner accessories. It may be just the information you need to get your business off to a flying start.

After you're done, be sure to come back here and look over the remaining summaries of barcode scanning equipment articles I've provided.

Good hunting.
