What is FBA Inventory Valuation?
A2X will automatically fetch the month-end stocktake data from Amazon for your FBA inventory and use your uploaded cost data (from your Cost of Goods Sold data) to calculate an inventory valuation.
You can configure A2X to include or exclude unsellable stock at FBA.
Where to Access the FBA Stocktake data
To access the Inventory features first you need to enable it in the A2X settings under the Product Costs tab. Upload costs in the same was as COGS, in order to calculate the monthly valuation.
The Inventory menu includes your monthly stocktake summary and FBA locations.
Viewing the FBA Inventory Data
In the Inventory > Monthly Summary screen you can see a table of each monthly stock take. The table shows the total unit count, the total SKU count, the number of countries the stock is located in and the status of the cost data (i.e whether all SKUs in the stock take have corresponding cost data).
The full FBA stocktake calculation can be reviewed for each month. Showing in detail how many units of each SKU were sellable and unsellable, and what value of stock is available.
Viewing the FBA Inventory Location Data
In the Inventory > Locations screen you can see a table and map of all Amazon warehouses where the stock is located.
A2X uses monthly inventory data to determine likely Amazon warehouse locations where your stock is being stored by Amazon. A2X presents these locations on a map and in a summary table.
