Recommended Supplies & Equipment

When it comes to physical supplies to run your in-person operations, we have a few favorites that we’ll share with you here. 


The equipment you will need to run your in-person operations depends on the size of your business and how you prefer to store, sell, and ship products. Not all businesses will need all of the items listed! 


CommentSold is not affiliated with any of these brands, nor do we profit from any sales made through the links listed below. This article includes items that are popular with our customers and compatible with CommentSold!



This Article Covers:


Barcoding & Labeling Supplies


A good printer can make or break your fulfillment process! We have recommendations for printers no matter the size of your business. We're also particularly partial to a barcode scanner that works well with CommentSold. Read on for the details!





Dymo 4XL

You will need a thermal printer if you plan to print barcodes and labels. If you’re just starting out, we recommend using the Dymo 4XL to get the job done. This thermal printer can print up to 53 labels per minute!





Zebra ZT610 Printer

For higher volume shops, we recommend the Zebra ZT610. This industrial printer is an absolute workhorse. It will allow you to print up to 14 labels per second!





Zebra Symbol DS9208 Scanner

Once your items are barcoded, you will need a way to scan them. This barcode scanner has both handheld and hands-free modes, which make scanning a snap. Though we highly recommend this scanner, CommentSold is also compatible with any 1D scanner that is a keyboard emulator.


Live Sale Supplies


We're often asked if live selling requires special software or equipment. The simple answer is not really! All you'll need to begin is a mobile device, a computer, and a strong Internet connection. But when you're ready to take your live sales to the next level, the supplies below will help!




Zebra Symbol DS9208 Scanner

If you would like to scan your items to display them on your live overlay, this Zebra scanner is a great option. It has both handheld and hands-free modes, which make scanning a snap. Though we highly recommend this scanner, CommentSold is also compatible with any 1D scanner that is a keyboard emulator.





Belkin Ethernet and Power Adapter with Lightning Connector

The two most common interruptions of live sales are dying devices and slow internet. An all-in-one Ethernet and power adapter will solve both of these problems. This particular model is compatible with iOS devices and supports data transmission at 10/100Mbps.





Neewer 18" Ring Light Kit

Ring lights are popular for live sales for good reason—they produce a consistent and flattering glow! We suggest at least one 18” ring light.






Keep your video simple and clean with a backdrop. Backdrops are an easy way to eliminate clutter that can distract from your live selling experience. The Backdrop Shop has an assortment of quality backdrops to choose from.
