There are two sections for sales under the Accounting tab, one for FBA sales and one for Merchant-Fulfilled Sales.
Main Page Information
The main page includes the following sortable columns:
- Date - this is the date the order shipped and not the order date.
- 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. InventoryLab is focused on accounting and therefore is counting the orders that have shipped (when you are actually paid for the order).
- Profit Status - this will show as Estimated or Reconciled.
- The profit status of a sale remains in Estimated status until the disbursement for that sale has been processed. For example, if an item ships on October 30th and you receive your next disbursement on November 7th, the status will not change to Reconciled until that November 7th payout has processed.
- Order Details - this includes the order ID, the title of the item, and the total quantity of each item placed in the order
- Order Price
- Buy Cost
- Net Profit
- Profit % - (Net Profit / Order Income) X 100
- ROI % - (Net Profit / Cost of Investment) X 100
This page updates every 1-4 hours and by default, reflects the items that have been shipped. You can also choose to view Cancelled, Unshipped, Pending, or All Orders by using the 'Advanced Search' button and changing the Order Status.

If you are looking for information on a particular order you can search sales by Order ID, MSKU, ASIN, or Title. The Advanced Search function allows you to filter the information by the following:
Order Placed - Within the last X timeframe or use 'From' for a custom, specific timeframe.
Order Status - Display shipped, cancelled, pending, unshipped, or all orders.
Order Type - Display only reconciled, estimated, or all.
Buy Cost - Display those with a buy cost, with no buy cost, or all
ROI % - Only display orders with an ROI greater than or equal to a certain percentage.
You can export any view. You can also import accounting information on this page, however, only for inventory items that are no longer in the inventory page.
