Marking a Refund as Sellable or Defective
As a rule of thumb, any item that you can no longer sell again, you will mark as Defective. This will keep the buy cost attached to the original sale. If you plan to sell the item again, regardless of the Amazon disposition, even on another marketplace, you will mark the return as Sellable. This provides a cost/unit credit to your account so that the buy cost can be accounted for once the item is sold again. For more information, check out our Self Service Guide.
To the disposition of a return, you'll just need to click either the Sellable or Defective button for each return.
In the screenshot above, we have 1 Defective item. The Buy Cost Credit is $0.00
Click on the Defective button and a dropdown box appears. To change this item from Defective to Sellable, click the Down Arrow in the dropdown box.
To make the dropdown box go away, click anywhere else on the page.
This action causes several changes:
- The quantity will change to 0 on the Defective button and in the dropdown box
- The Defective button will turn gray
- The Sellable button will turn green and its quantity will change from 0 to 1
- The Buy Cost Credit column changes to reflect that the item is now Sellable
You can type the 1 into the dropdown box and press the Enter key to accomplish the same result.This works the same way to change an item from Sellable to Defective.
If you have multiple items in the return, you can split the quantities between the two dispositions by adjusting the amounts for each button.
Additionally, information about the reason for refunds can be found in Seller Central under Reports>Fulfillment>FBA customer returns once the item is received back at the warehouse.
Changing the default disposition
The default disposition for the refunds is Sellable.
You can change the default disposition of your refunds by going to Settings>Advanced Settings and changing the Default refund status.
This will update how your refunds default on your next settlement period, but will not alter any past refunds already synced to your account.
