    Note: Reports can take up to one hour to generate. If you do not see your report in the list yet, check again later.

How do I find the transactional level details of my unadjusted gross sales for a specific year?

You can use the Date Range Reports page to generate individual transaction reports for a specific date range.

To generate a date range report, follow these steps:

  1. From Reports, select Payments.
  2. Select Date Range Reports. You will need to generate a report for both Standard and Invoiced orders (if applicable).
  3. Click Generate Report.
  4. In the Generate date range report pop-up box, proceed as follows:
    1. Select report type: Transaction
    2. Select reporting range: Month or Custom, and the specified date information
    3. Click Generate.
  5. Review your report in the list on the Date Range Reports page.
  6. Filter the type column by Order.
  7. To calculate unadjusted gross sales, add the amounts in these columns for both Standard and Invoiced orders (if applicable):
    • Product sales
    • Product sales tax
    • Shipping credits
    • Shipping credits tax
    • Gift wrap credits
    • Gift wrap credits tax
    • Promotional rebates
    • Promotional rebates tax
Note: Reports can take up to one hour to generate. If you do not see your report in the list, check again later.

Transactions from both these reports are included in the unadjusted gross sales which then leads to the IRS Form 1099-K form.

Note: If you are attempting to reconcile a previous years' Form 1099-K please be aware that the calculation in step 7 from above will include Marketplace facilitator tax.

The transactional level details in my date range reports do not match the IRS Form 1099-K that I received.

The IRS Form 1099-K you received is reported based on the information you provided during the US tax identity interview. The IRS Form 1099-K is generated from your Selling on Amazon activity, Amazon Pay, Mechanical Turk (MTurk) and Flexible Payments Systems (FPS), plus Invoicing.

Note: For invoicing orders, Amazon is required to report on the date of the transaction, while the Date Range reports in your Seller Central account are based on the date you received the funds into your account. Due to invoicing, you may see a difference in reported amounts month over month, or an overlap between December and January.
