There are two sections for sales under the Accounting tab, one for FBA sales and one for Merchant Fulfilled Sales. These sections give the following information about each transaction:
There are a few important notes about this page:
1. This page updates every 1-4 hours and reflects the items that have been SHIPPED. Until an item ships it is in Pending in Amazon and is therefore not considered a sale until the money actually “changes hands” so to speak.
2. The date listed on the Sales page is the date the item was shipped. Amazon will show the order date on an item but in IL it may show a date days later. This is important to remember so that when you are comparing the IL Dashboard to the Amazon sales reports, the numbers may not exactly match in those snapshots. Amazon is calculating everything ordered while IL is focused on accounting and therefore is counting the orders that have shipped.
3. The profit status of a sale remains in “Estimated” status until the payout for that sale has been processed. For example, if an item ships on October 30th and you receive your next payout on November 7th, the status will not change to “Reconciled” until that November 7th payout has processed. If you are finding that payouts have occurred and sales are still in “Estimated” status, please see these Troubleshooting Steps.
4. Clicking on the Order ID will give you a detailed fee breakdown for the transaction. Clicking on the Order ID will give you a detailed fee breakdown for the transaction. The following fees and credits from Amazon are included in the breakdown if applicable for the order:
