Best way to backfill buy costs for inventory from before using Inventorylab?

    Hey Alfred, thanks for reaching out! 

    To start, if you have inventory that is still in stock, you will want to add your buy costs in the inventory pages and not the sales pages. This is because the sales transactions pull the buy cost directly from your inventory pages. If you enter a buy cost in the sales transaction, but the inventory is active and shows zero buy cost, then when the sales pages sync with inventory it will revert back to zero. 

    For items on the inventory page with zero in the Replens column, meaning you only sent that in once, you can use the bulk import option to add the cost to those items.

    If the items have any number other than zero in the Replens column of if you have multiple buy costs that you need to enter for each ASIN, you can use our bulk edit process to add in the replenishment costs for each item:

    Once you have updated the inventory buy costs, it takes about 5 or 10 minutes to filter through to the sales transactions that contain that MSKU, and if you sell merchant fulfilled, you would do the same on the MFN Inventory page. 

    I hope this helps, but please feel free to reach out to our support team if you have any additional questions or concerns!
