Inventory for Resellers spreadsheet



Introducing an inventory solution especially crafted for resellers, retailers, supply shops, and more.

Based on our bestselling inventory for makers spreadsheet, P+S has created a version especially with resellers in mind. This spreadsheet solution helps you keep tabs on all things inventory without the headache – how much you spent, the cost per unit, how much you have left on hand, and most importantly – what you need to know for tax time.

Dealing with inventory can be one of the most overwhelming and stressful parts of being a shop owner. The reseller inventory spreadsheet from Paper + Spark is here to change that.

The reseller inventory spreadsheet helps those who sell ready-made goods with all of these tasks:

  • Logging your inventory purchases and calculating the cost per item
  • Keeping track of how many units you have in stock
  • Helping you examine your pricing strategy and set profitable price points for your goods
  • Totaling the cost of items taken out for personal use (helpful for tax time!)
  • Calculating your ending inventory and total inventory purchases each year with ease (also super helpful for tax time!)
  • Streamlining your year end inventory count for taxes

I can just make a spreadsheet template myself, can’t I?

Sure you can. But as with all P+S spreadsheets, the value of the reseller inventory spreadsheet is in the guidance. This isn’t just a barebones spreadsheet. Your purchase also includes step-by-step PDF and instructions, along with video tutorials that guide you through the entire inventory process – from initial set up to doing your year-end count for tax time. My goal is not to just give you a tool for entering your inventory, but for you to actually understand all the concepts related to inventory – like cost of goods sold, the year end count, and how inventory works for your taxes. I break down the “why” behind what you’re doing in plain English.

You also get the confidence to deal with inventory and the peace of mind to know you’re doing things correctly.

No need to waste endless hours Googling, wondering if you’ve found a reliable source, or reading contradicting answers on Facebook forums. This spreadsheet was created by a Certified Public Accountant & former accounting instructor who is also an experienced Etsy seller.

When developing this inventory spreadsheet, I worked with supply sellers, clothing retailers, and other e-commerce shop owners to create an inventory solution especially for resellers. You can be confident that the reseller inventory spreadsheet has been tweaked, tried, tested and approved.

What's included in your purchase?
  • An instantly downloadable & ready-to-go multi-tabbed spreadsheet file, openable in Excel, Numbers, or Google Sheets that can be used year after year
  • A detailed written instruction guide, with screenshots and explanations of applicable accounting terms and concepts used, via Google Docs
  • Series of video tutorials with step-by-step instructions on how to use your spreadsheet
  • Access to the Accounting Accountability Club on Facebook for support, questions, and monthly office hours
  • Monthly checklist & reminder emails

The PDF and video instructions will walk you through the initial set up of your inventory (including how to enter any goods you’ve already got on hand), how to record purchases and sales throughout the year, how to get the numbers you need for tax time and perform a year end count, and how to roll over your spreadsheet to use year after year.

Who is this spreadsheet for?

The Inventory for Resellers spreadsheet works for both newbie and experienced creative biz owners who create and sell physical, ready made products. Think clothing retailers, wholesale resellers, supply shops on Etsy, MLM businesses, etc. It works for those that sell online, at local shows and pop up shops, or via a brick & mortar storefront. Sellers with any level (or no level!) of experience using a spreadsheet can use this tool. Our instructional package includes written, photographic, and video step-by-step guides on how to get the most out of your purchase.

This spreadsheet is less suited for those who craft, create, or make their goods from raw materials & supplies, like handmade sellers. If you sell handmade items, you want the Inventory Cost & Pricing spreadsheet for handmade sellers.

If you sell BOTH types of items, I generally recommend going with the handmade inventory spreadsheet. It will better handle your raw materials & supplies and can be tweaked for your retail items as well.

Why a Paper + Spark spreadsheet?

Traditional bookkeeping software is made with accountants in mind. It’s expensive (and generally requires a monthly subscription payment), bulky, and oftentimes more complicated than a micro business like yours needs. It’s made for any and all types of small businesses, and not specific to YOUR business needs as a handmade biz owner or e-commerce seller. When your bookkeeping software is too complicated, too vague, and support or in-plain-English instruction is lacking, you tend to procrastinate on using it. Not updating your books consistently means severe stress once year end or tax deadlines hit. 

Spreadsheets are powerful but simple tools. Partner a well-crafted spreadsheet file designed by an accountant intimately acquainted with e-commerce with clear, understandable instructions and you’ve got a formula for bookkeeping success. You get everything you need to feel empowered by your numbers, and nothing you don’t need. 

Paper + Spark has been selling spreadsheets since 2015. We currently support thousands of makers and creative entrepreneurs in doing their books and understanding their money. Our spreadsheets have received countless rave reviews from shop owners. No other bookkeeping solution out there offers our level of step-by-step guidance & support. We also stay up-to-date on e-commerce reporting and platform changes. 

With a Paper + Spark spreadsheet, you’ll pay a one-time fee for lifetime access to your files and support. We provide any future year files and updates for free, forever, via the account you create at checkout. You can always reach out in the Accounting Accountability Club, or via DM or email, and get answers to your spreadsheet & bookkeeping questions.  

What do users have to say about their Paper + Spark spreadsheet?

Responses to my recent survey highlighted these themes amongst spreadsheet users: 

  • Tax time is much easier with their Paper + Spark spreadsheet
  • Their purchase comes with a wealth of support materials created by an accountant who is down-to-earth and easy to follow (thanks y’all!)
  • The spreadsheet gives them a clean way to get organized & a bird’s eye view of their business. They love that this tool was made specifically for makers & crafters and how simple and user-friendly it is to update.
  • Many users said “My accountant loves your spreadsheet too!” — the highest form of praise!

Paper + Spark users are more likely to actually DO their books consistently and over the long term. According to survey results, 65% of spreadsheet users have been using their sheets for at least 2 years. 61% of spreadsheet users report that they update their sheets at least once a month.

Everyone who has a small business THIS IS A MUST!

Janet is a genius!! Her videos, spreadsheets & pdfs will help your tax anxiety. She has a gift for explaining every step with ease in a soothing calm voice. Her support group team are all so friendly, kind & supportive. NO judgement. It's a positive and uplifting environment, which is something I was terrified of. What she has created is a business owner's dream. Her attention to detail is unlike anything I've seen. I purchased the Etsy Seller Spreadsheet and Reseller Inventory Spreadsheet. What a God send this has been. I know very little when it comes to bookkeeping but she explains every little detail and helps you learn to take control of your business which helps builds your confidence as a business owner. She also teachers and sends reminder emails on how to stay on top of your business monthly. It's all so empowering & organized honestly. Her bundles are so reasonably affordable for what you get, I was blown away. I am beyond grateful to Janet's many talents.
