Scoutly supports 4 operating modes to scan items.

  • DB: (Database Only) The program will only search from the local database on the phone. No Internet is required, so the result is returned instantly. For items not found in the database, it will return “not found.” You can pull those items away and use live search to review those “not found” items later.
  • NF: (Database + Live Search on Not Found items) If the item is not found in the local database, the program will automatically do a live search on all Amazon items. If you signed up for the Professional Plan and want to quickly find the items worth reselling, please use this mode. You can use live search (LV mode) to do more research on the selected items later.
  • MR: (Database + Live Search on Not Found or Buy) If the item is not found or is signaled as ‘Buy’ based on the trigger, the program will automatically do a live search to get current information. This will allow you to find valuable items and do the research with one scan.
  • LV: (Live Search Only) The program will only do live search. If you’re signed up for the lite plan, please use this mode.
