A man has told how his 68-year-old mother was making a whopping £2,000 a month in just a few clicks thanks to a simple job at Amazon.
Self-proclaimed person hustle on the sidelines The expert explained that he showed her the ropes of online retail before she branched out on her own.
His mother, known to her 259,000 followers as Mamma Profit, is now closely following her businessman son with her own resale gig.
Steve explains that she often joins him while he rummages through thrift stores, interesting objects, and books for him to grab.
But Mamma Profit doesn’t want to get bogged down in logistics like listing, photographing and shipping items.
So Steve decided to teach his mother how to master the art of reselling, with the help of a handy app that can do all the work for you.
“I was just starting to sell books at the time, and I was fascinated by the fact that you could take out your phone and scan a book and it would tell you whether you should buy it or not,” he said.
“Then they’ll do everything for you. They’ll pick, pack, ship, handle customer service, and you’ll just get paid.”
application For example, the Scout IQ can scan barcodes on books and instantly generate a breakdown of its performance on Amazon.
The technology will notify the user of its selling price, while also charging the seller a fee to calculate the potential profit.
While there is a monthly fee to access the full benefits of the app, it seems worth it as it saves merchants a lot of time.
Steve firmly believes it’s a small price to pay for simplifying the lucrative business – as it has helped his mother on her journey to success.
He explains that all Mamma Profit has to do now is buy a bunch of books from thrift stores after figuring out their value through the app.
Steve shared a TikTok video captures the scan to show how easy his army of tracking is – regardless of age or ability.
Mamma Profit was seen clutching a book she had been saving, flipping it open to find the barcode and scanning it in seconds.
Moments later, a breakdown of the item’s performance on Amazon pops up and shows profit potential.
The content creator captioned the clip: “This is how my mom makes $3,000 (£2,300) a month.
“She scanned the book to see how much it was worth. $72 (£57) honey!”
Social media users were stunned by the simple hustle, with many praising how accessible it was for all ages.
But most just want Steve to reveal his secret so they can follow suit and earn a side income.
One excitedly wrote: “How can I get into this business?”
Another added: “Smart mom!”
And a third said: “Information please!”
We have previously said how a pensioner reveals he earns £600 a month with his hustle – and he doesn’t even have to lift a finger.
