InventoryLab automatically captures the fees that Amazon charges to dispose of items for you or to send them back to you.
We account for your buy costs, once the removal or disposal is complete, on the Disposition Management page.
If the item is removed due to a customer return (meaning Amazon has it marked as unsellable), when you mark it as Sellable on the Disposition Management page, we do not change your buy cost as that was credited when the item was returned initially.
If you leave the removal as Unsellable on the Disposition Management page, InventoryLab will debit the cost/unit, at the current active buy cost.
For a regular removal, if you mark it as Sellable, then you can account for the buy cost when you ultimately sell the item. When marked as Unsellable, we account for the buy cost of the item as a loss.
We also account for the inventory item by automatically removing the quantity from your replenishments pages once it is removed for any removal or disposal order.
Note: You may have accounted for returns date prior to July 1st, 2019 before we automatically accounted for removal buy costs. If so, you will not need to make changes to the Disposition Management page for these specific items. For more information, see the article: When + Why to Change a Removal to Sellable or Unsellable
Additionally, if you've previously accounted for removal buy costs under Other Expenses after July 1 2019, these entries should now be deleted to avoid double counting a buy cost.
