We know many of you already use StockX bulk shipping, and now you can manage & stay up to date on your bulk shipments directly from Scout. Simply go to the sales tab and click “Create shipment” at the top, or you can select items and right click on them. Add items to your bulk shipment and we’ll process it with StockX! This is just the beginning - in the future you’ll have a dedicated area to manage and track all of your outgoing sale shipments. Enjoy!
Email Hub has been a staple for our customers ever since we first shipped it in November 2020. However, due to the speed & amount of sites we have raced to equip it with, there have inevitably been some bugs that have arisen along the way. Therefore, one of our primary initiatives in Q1 2022 was completely redesigning the Email Hub backend. You can expect there to be significantly less downtime, increased accuracy, more sites supported, & more emphasis on automated handling.

We’ve completely redesigned the iOS market page to make it easier than ever to find new and trending products to acquire and sell. This page now includes a new “Recently Viewed“ section, which displays your history of viewed products. We’ve also added filter options so you can easily refine your search results.
In an effort to simplify & perfect the core experiences of Scout, we’ve combed through and removed a slew of mostly-unused pages/features from the website & app. Not only will this provide a much cleaner user experience, but it will also allow us to focus on building robust features that users truly want.
All of your data from these pages will be available for you in your exports section of the settings page once the update is live. The removal is estimated to take place early-mid next week. We will ping again when it's live!
Pages/Features Being Removed:
While Q1 has come to a close, we are off to the races working on new features & updates in Q2. Here’s an exclusive sneak peek on what’s coming up:
Today, Scout is optimized for US customers. We want to fix that - expect a huge push towards localizing Scout for sellers in Europe and other regions outside the US.
We’re actively laying the groundwork for adding new marketplace integrations to Scout. Expect more places to sync & list soon.
One of our major goals is to bring Scout downtime to a minimum.. This is a part of a larger push to refactor and optimize Scout’s backend.
Scout Employee Spotlight
Over the last few months, we’ve added many new faces to the Scout team. We’ve chosen Alex Pan as this quarter’s employee spotlight!
1. Hey Alex! How are you doing today?
I’m doing well, the weather is getting warm again.
2. Where did you grow up?
I grew up in Los Angeles, but now live in Orange County.
3. What inspired you to get into Engineering?
I used to be an accountant and my first foray into programming was writing Visual Basic code to automate some repetitive tasks in Excel, which was far more interesting than accounting itself.**
4. Are you a sneakerhead? What’s your favorite sneaker?
Yeah, I would say so. My most coveted sneaker at the moment is the Parra x Nike SB Dunk “Abstract Art” that was released for the Summer olympics.
5. What excites you most about working on Scout?
I am excited to work alongside exceptionally talented team members to help build integrations that will make Scout the best multi-platform reselling tool in the industry. 🐎
The top selling item on scout in Q1 was the adidas Yeezy Slide Ochre! Did you cop any?

Hey 👋 in the past few days we've pushed three updates that streamlines a few operations on Scout. Firstly, you'll notice that when selecting multiple items there's a little popup that shows basic stats about your selected items/sales:
Next, you can now add to or create new Coplists when you're adding new items to your inventory:
Finally, you can set your Coplists to automatically hide sales if you only want to see inventory items & listings:
Have a great week!

We've spent the past few days simplifying some of the simple tasks of browsing inventory on Scout. You can now filter by sale/listing platform on your items. You can also select whether to view 30, 50, or 100 items per page. Along with that, we've pushed a visual update so you can see which Coplists your items are part of from the inventory & sales tab.

We've just pushed a huge change for our non-US based users. Your currencies will now be calculated live, as opposed to the previous method of calculating based off of a saved USD value. You can also select whether or not you want platform (StockX, GOAT, FlightClub) fees to factor into your unrealized profit calculations.
