I’ve taken accounting classes in college and have been doing the books for my businesses for years now (also have an accountant that files for me). That’s why all of this is so frustrating for me, because I am also a numbers guy. When you look at each month, at the end of each month, how do you do the books for that since it’s not final yet, pending returns/other? Amazon holds the funds and disperses them every 2 weeks? So at the end of the month, you really can’t have a 100% accurate calculation, because there could be returns, ect and the finds have not hit your account.
I understand all of this, i understand returns, ad fees, expenses very well. I have each expense itemized down to the duty, the item cost, the average ACOS, the FBA shipping everything down to the cent, but for the life of me can’t get the numbers from the transactional view to line up with the payments. How can i look at AUG and see what was actually paid out? Since the payouts were made in late aug and sep.
What i want to be able to see is itemised in the payments, that when I sold product A, (X amount from that sale) is transfered to my bank account. I can see this in the transactional view, but not the actual payments.
