Saving pricing information in the accounting tab

    Hey Gladys!  Hopefully, other Sellers will chime in with their best practices to help, but I also wanted to provide some general information.

    The easiest way to add purchase details (such as cost/unit or supplier) to your sales data is by adding it directly on the Inventory>FBA or Inventory>Merchant pages.  This is because our system is designed to pull those details from the Inventory>FBA and Merchant pages, so the costs recorded there (or lack thereof) will override any changes made within Accounting>FBA or Merchant Sales for your Active and Inactive MSKUs.  The only time you would want to update costs via the Accounting pages directly is if the MSKU is no longer in your Inventory. 

    Once the purchase details are saved to an MSKU on the Inventory page, it will save and update any past sales and apply them to upcoming sales, too.  You can enter these costs manually or in bulk to speed things up if you have multiple items to update.  Here are articles with steps for both methods:

    Adding Individual Cost per Unit, Supplier, and Purchase Date Manually

    Bulk Import Accounting Details into Inventory via .CSV

    If you replenish items at different costs and want to track multiple costs for the same MSKU over time, those will need to be maintained manually and cannot be imported in bulk currently.  If you'd like more details on Replenishments, here is a link directly to the portion of our User's Guide covering them for you:

    I hope this helps!  Please feel free to reach out to support if you have any questions.
