The item information area displays the item ASIN, Title, Rank, Category, Size Tier, and Prep Type.

You also have the option to add in Sales Tax, Discounts, or Other Costs by turning on the Total Cost Calculator.
Purchased - This is the date you purchased the item.
Expiration - This is only required for certain items. Due to limitations within the Amazon API system, InventoryLab is unable to determine automatically which items require this field. If you are unsure, please visit the help pages in Seller Support regarding expiration dates. To toggle the feature on and off, click the eye next to the field. If you need to add multiple expiration dates, please reference Adding Items to a Batch With Multiple Expiration Dates.

Condition - The condition of your item based on Amazon's Condition Guidelines.
Condition Notes - Add a note to any condition that is not New. To set up default notes, follow the steps here.
List Price - Set the price in which you will sell your item. You can set up Auto Price Rules by clicking on the pencil icon. This calculated with your fees, cost/unit, and estimated shipping will calculate an estimated Net Profit per Unit.
- ROI - You have the option to enter your ideal ROI and allow InventoryLab adjust your List Price for you. ROI is (Total Net Profit / Total Buy Cost) * 100.

Many of these can be set up to default to the last used data.
