InventoryLab is web-based, meaning with our Stratify desktop application you can login from anywhere at anytime, simply by visiting the login page. InventoryLab is exclusively for the Firefox, Chrome, Edge, and Safari browser families. We cannot offer support for InventoryLab used on any other browser as it is likely to exhibit unpredictable functionality. And while many have success using Stratify on a mobile device, we only support the use from a laptop or desktop computer.
When using Stratify, you can research profitable products by using our in app resource tool called Scout.
When you sign up and your trial begins we will synchronize ALL of your inventory (both Active and Inactive) and 60 days of past sales data. This sync can take up to 48 hours.
When you become a paid user, email us and we will give you the steps to sync all of your Amazon data into InventoryLab.
The first thing you should do once your inventory has completed the sync process, is to add in your costs, supplier, and purchase date information. This is important because all of your financial reports, including the sales transactions, profitability reports, refunds, etc use this information to give you information that helps in your decision making.
To do this, use our import process to simplify the process:
We automatically sync most of your Amazon data into Stratify, such as fulfillment fees, storage fees, etc so that you don’t have to keep track of it manually. This page from our support portal outlines all of the income and expenses that we automatically keep track of for you to save you time.
And for any of the income or expenses that we don’t track automatically, such as your shipping materials, income from other marketplaces, etc you can manually create your own categories and input the costs and we will create a category on the Profit and Loss report to display this information.
As far as accounting, we pull sales and transaction information directly from Amazon from your settlement reports that arrive after each of your disbursements. As a trial user, you'll be able to see the past 60 days worth of sales data.
If you list through InventoryLab, you'll have the option to add all of your accounting information right then, including buy costs and supplier information. If you typically list through Amazon, you can still track your inventory and accounting information, you'll just need to enter the information manually:
Adding Individual Cost per Unit, Supplier, or Date Purchased Manually
Adding Cost per Unit, Supplier, and Date Purchased in Bulk
The accounting information applies to your sales in a FIFO order.
We also offer profitability reports that allow you to assess how your online business is doing from more than one angle. In addition to profitability, you can also get a good take on inventory value, monitor your sales velocity, and view your overall Profit and Loss for any given timeframe.
