Many ecommerce sellers use Amazon FBA for order-fulfilment for sales made through other ecommerce channels (non-Amazon). For example if you sell on Shopify, eBay or Magento and use Amazon FBA to ship your customer orders - A2X can help you to track and understand those shipments. In this article we will cover the two areas where A2X can help: Cost of Goods Sold (COGS), and FBA fees.
In the Accounts and Taxes screen you can map the FBA fees for various types of transactions. By default all FBA feed are grouped together, but you can expand the detailed transactions by clicking the little orange plus symbol and identifying the Amazon and non-Amazon FBA fees. You can see an example in the screenshot below:
If you choose a separate account from your chart of accounts for each type of fee - then you can track the costs for Amazon and non-amazon FBA shipments in your Income statement or Profit and Loss report.
Cost of Goods Sold (COGS)
A2X can calculate Cost of Goods Sold for non-Amazon sales channels such as Shopify sales or any other non-Amazon FBA shipments.
Enable this function in Settings for Cost of Goods Sold, reducing time spent getting these numbers into your accounting system.
The A2X Setting is shown in this screenshot below:
Once enabled, the non-Amazon shipments that we detect will be included in your COGS summary when sent to your accounting system. You can select a different account to track these shipments.
