If you have expenses you want to track that are not automatically imported from Amazon, you can add them under Accounting>Other Expenses.
The expenses that automatically sync to this page include the following:
- Removal/Disposal Fees - These are the fees only and do not include buy costs. The buy costs are accounted for on the Disposition Management page on the removal or disposal is complete.
- 30-Day Storage Fees
- Long Term Storage Fees
- Amazon Pro Subscription Fees
- Inventory Prep Fees
- Inventory Placement Fees
- Inbound Shipping Fees if paid using your Amazon disbursement - Shipping purchased outside of Amazon will need to be entered manually either on the Inbound Shipping page or the Other Expenses page.
- Ad Campaign Fees if paid using your Amazon disbursement - Fees paid using a credit/debit card will need to be accounted for manually on this page.
These fees are synced to Stratify once the payment disbursement period containing them occurs (when you get paid for the time period covering the expense).
The Other Expenses page will display the following sortable columns:
The default view of this page shows all expense entries. The Advanced Search can be utilized to view the entries within a specific timeframe or a custom date range.
You can Export any view you select.
The Total Expenses amount for the timeframe being viewed is displayed at the bottom of the page.
Hovering over the bar graph displays the individual category totals that make up the Total Expenses amount.

Stratify begins with categories in place for expenses, however, you can add additional categories in your Settings. You can also add to the categories as you create Other Expense entries by entering a new one in the Category field.
Common categories that customers have added include:
