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, when you mark it as Sellable on the Dispositions Management page, we give you a buy cost credit so that the buy cost can be accounted for with the next sale. When marked as Unsellable, the buy cost stays with the original sale.
For a regular removal, if you mark it as Sellable on the Dispositions Management page, 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.
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, these categories should now be deleted to avoid double counting a buy cost.
