In this article, you will learn about Sellercloud’s Product Profit Details report. This report shows details about Profit and Loss (P&L) for each individual product’s order and non-order transactions within a specific period:
- Order transactions – Debits (sales and payments, etc.) and credits (returns and refunds, etc.)
- Non-order transactions – Sources can include:
- Product-related transactions from the Amazon and eBay settlement reports
- FBA disposal fees from the FBA Removal Shipment Order report
- FBA inbound shipping costs (see note at top)
- Product fees for Amazon’s sponsored ads’ total “Spend” (if imported from Seller Central’s Sponsored Products Ad report)
You can see the following:
- Product Information Details: SKU, Product Name, ASIN, Brand, Manufacturer, Product Type, and Original Shadow SKU.
- Sales and Revenue Details: Quantity Sold, Quantity Returned, Subtotal, Shipping, Tax, Other Charges, Grand Total, Payments, Refunds, Adjustments, Items Cost, Shipping Cost, Commission, Tax Payable, Tota Fees, Accrual Profit, Cash Profit, Accrual Profit Margin, and Cash Profit Margin.
- Orders and Transactions Details: Transaction Type, Transaction Date, Order ID, Channel, Channel Order Number, Channel Order Number (2), Order Date, Order Item Number, Order Subtype, Marketing Source, Purchaser, Sales Rep, Sales Rep 2, Ship Date, Ship From Warehouse, and Shipping Carrier.
- Customer and Location Information Details: City, Company, Country, CustomerEmail, State, Zip, and Wholesale Customer.
- Costs and Fees Details: Co-Op Fee, Discount, Dropship Fee, Gift Wrap, Handling, Insurance, Items Rebate, Posting Fee, Shipping Discount, Shipping Fee, Transaction Fee, Unit Price, and Vendor.
This report can show FBA inbound shipping costs by product when filtering the Date Type by “Transaction” and the Channel by “FBA.” Dividing the cost per unit in the FBA shipment and showing it in this report is an alternative workflow to manually applying the cost per unit to the related orders as an adjustment.
