Bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers

E-Commerce bookkeeping is one of the most difficult industries to manage. This is because it has many moving parts. An online seller must have an in-depth understanding of the underlying technology to meet the bookkeeping requirements.

Each e-Commerce selling platform has its own unique characteristics and fees. For instance, Amazon sellers have to pay amazon FBA fulfillment fees and monthly inventory storage fees to get their products delivered to the end-users. If an Amazon seller is using multi-channel fulfillment by Amazon, then it will have to pay relatively higher Amazon FBA Fees.

Likewise, there are a host of other costs that an Amazon seller has to bear to deliver products to the end-users successfully. For instance, referral fees, monthly selling fees, return processing fees, and many more.

Besides incurring these Amazon expenses, an amazon seller can also take advantage of fee discounts if they are eligible. 

Given this, the challenge for an Amazon seller is to understand all such expenses and benefits and record them in their books of accounts. 

To make things simple for Amazon sellers, here is a complete guide on Bookkeeping for Amazon sellers. This will help businesses selling on Amazon to have an understanding regarding bookkeeping and accounting for Amazon.

What is Bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers?

As mentioned in one of our posts, bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers means doing accounting that covers all the company’s transactions related to selling. In generic terms, Bookkeeping is the process of collecting and analyzing financial information from a business in order to determine its financial position. 

The standard bookkeeping tasks may involve entering financial transactions, performing calculations, and organizing data to keep your books balanced. Besides this, you also need to manage accounts payable, send online invoices, keep records in accordance with FASB, ensure your books are balanced, and do much more.

Thus, the best way through which an Amazon seller can collect Bookkeeping data is to integrate an accounting software with his Amazon Seller Central account. This is a great way to share information instantly between the two platforms. 

It will automatically generate accounting reports like profit and loss statements, cash flow statements, and balance sheet reports. Besides this, it will make tracking expenses quite easy.

By the end of this Strategy Session, you will have a clear understanding of the next steps you can take for your business to take advantage of the tax deductions you are missing out on.

However, the challenge here is that all this involves significant time and computations. In addition to this, such tasks require accounting capabilities that a vendor selling on Amazon may lack.

Certainly, an Amazon seller needs good online accounting software as well as the services of an e-commerce accountant to make things seamless.

Note that ecommerce accounting is different from accounting for other businesses in several aspects. In addition to this, each e-commerce platform like Shopify, WooCommerce, Etsy, and the like has its own set of features and procedures to account for e-commerce transactions.

As an Amazon merchant, you must understand the peculiarities of bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers. Since we are now clear with what Bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers means, let’s begin with the fundamentals of bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers.

Getting Started With Bookkeeping For Amazon Sellers

Here is the list of expenses and incomes along with their accounting treatment that an Amazon Seller must know for accurate bookkeeping.

Amazon Expenses

I. Amazon FBA Fees

FBA stands for Fulfillment By Amazon. Many Amazon sellers sell their products through Amazon’s FBA Program. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service that provides businesses access to Amazon’s logistics network. 

Accordingly, businesses selling on Amazon send their products to Amazon’s fulfillment centers. As and when customers make a purchase, Amazon handles receiving, packing, shipping, customer service, and returns for those orders. 

Thus, Amazon’s FBA program helps businesses manage customer orders, send shipments on time, and obtain dated information on products available for restocking or promotions.

It offers all these excellent services for a fees called FBA Fulfillment Fees. These fees depend on the weights and dimensions of the seller’s product. It is a per unit cost that includes the cost for picking and packing orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns.

Click here to check out the complete list of FBA fees.

II. Monthly Inventory Storage Fees

Amazon charges monthly inventory storage fees. This fee relates to the charges that Amazon sellers have to pay for utilizing the space in Amazon’s fulfillment centers to store their inventory.

The monthly storage fee is calculated on the seller’s daily average volume in cubic feet. Furthermore, such charges are based on the size of a unit that is properly packaged and ready to ship in accordance with FBA policies and requirements. 

Note that the Monthly Storage Fees varies based on the product size and time of year. Thus, a merchant may use the following formula to calculate the per unit storage fee:

Fee per product = average daily units x volume per unit x applicable rate

In case, the merchant keeps the inventory in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days, he will have to pay a monthly long-term storage fee along with the monthly inventory storage fee.

Note that FBA calculates ending inventory age on a first-in, first-out basis across the entire fulfillment network. This means that SKUs sold are deducted from the inventory that has been in the fulfillment network the longest. It deducts such inventory regardless of which unit was actually shipped or removed. 

Reports like Manage Inventory Health and Recommended Removal Report can help an Amazon merchant to identify items that are subject to long-term storage fees.

III. Per Item Selling Fees

An individual will have to choose between two plans when creating a new seller account. These include individual seller accounts or create a professional seller account. An individual account is free to create. But an individual seller needs to pay a commission of $0.99 for every sale that he makes on Amazon. In addition to this, there are additional referral fees and variable closing fees for every sale.

On the other hand, a professional account will cost an individual $39.99 every month. In addition to this, there are additional referral fees and variable closing fees for every sale. However, ‘professional’ sellers do not have to pay an extra $0.99 per item sold. Additionally, they also have access to a host of benefits. These benefits include some advertising features, in-depth inventory reports, running promotions, and other benefits. 

IV. Amazon Seller Referral Fees

Amazon sellers have to pay a Referral Fee on each item sold. This is in addition to the Amazon selling fee. Note that Amazon deducts a percentage of the total sales price for all the products as a referral fee. The percentage of this fee varies by product category. 

This fee does not include any taxes calculated through Amazon tax calculation services. Also, the total sales price used for the calculation of the referral fee is the total amount that the buyer pays for a product. This price includes the item price and any delivery charges or gift wrapping charges. Click here to check the complete list of products for referral fees.

The following is the Referral fee formula that an Amazon Seller can use to calculate the same:

Referral fee = [(Item price + delivery charges + gift wrap charges) multiplied by the category referral fee rate] OR [applicable minimum referral fee], whichever is greater.

Consider the following example. An Amazon Seller sells toys. The following are the details:

  • Current rate: 15% of the total sales price or an applicable per-item minimum referral fee of $0.30
  • Item price = $25.00
  • Delivery charges = $4.50
  • Gift-wrap charges = $3.50
  • Total sales price = Item price + delivery charges + gift wrap charges = $33.00

Referral fee = Higher of (15% multiplied by $33.00) or $0.30 = $4.95

V. FBA Disposal Order Fees

An Amazon Seller also has to pay fees on the per-item basis to Amazon for disposing of the items in the FBA inventory stored at an Amazon fulfillment center. The seller can even submit a removal order to request Amazon for removing his inventory from a fulfillment center. 

The disposal order fee depends upon the product size tier and the shipping weight of the product. 

Here product size tiers refer to the measurement categories based on the unit weight, product dimensions, and dimensional weight of a packaged item. 

Whereas, the shipping weight refers to the item weight plus the packaging to ship an order of the item. The shipping weight is calculated based on the item’s unit weight or dimensional weight, plus the packaging weight. An Amazon Seller can visit the Disposal Order Fee Page to check the rate card.

VI. High-Volume Listing Fee

An Amazon Seller also has to pay a monthly fee to cover the costs associated with cataloging and maintaining large numbers of SKUs on Amazon. This fee is applied based on the highest number of active SKUs from the 5th–31st days of the month. 

Note that the High-Volume Listing Fee is not charged for the first 1.5 million SKUs that meet the criteria. This simply means that Amazon sellers need not pay the fee for the first 1.5 million active SKUs per marketplace.

A single, fixed monthly rate, of $0.001 per SKU over 1.5 million is applicable to listings greater than the threshold. Amazon Sellers can view a list of their current SKUs satisfying the criteria for the fee in the High Volume Listings Report.

The following is the formula that Amazon Seller can use to calculate the fee.

Monthly fee = (Max count of SKUs – 1.5 million) x rate per SKU

Let’s consider an example. Say, an Amazon Seller has 1,000,000 active SKUs in a given month. Accordingly, his High-Volume Listing Fee would be $0 since he has not exceeded his free allowance of 1,500,000 active SKUs. However, if he has 1,600,000 eligible SKUs, he will be charged $100. This fee is calculated as $0.001 on the 100,000 active SKUs over the free allowance.

VII. FBA Removal Order Fee

An Amazon Seller can remove inventory from a fulfillment center by submitting a removal order. He can use one or more of the following ways to remove his inventory. These include:

  • Request the return or disposal of inventory from fulfillment centers at any time
  • Manage unsellable and slow-moving inventory automatically
  • Use spreadsheets to submit bulk removal orders

In case a seller chooses the first method, he will have to pay removal fees per item removed. The rate of the fee is based on the unit shipping weight.

Then, a seller can upload a tab-delimited list of items and submit a bulk removal order to Amazon. Again, the removal fee is charged on the basis of per-item removed. The maximum number of list items that a seller can include is 1000.

Also, the Amazon seller can download a template for creating bulk removal order requests from the Upload removal order documents page in his Amazon Seller Central account.

Finally, a seller can also set up automatic removals for inventory at Amazon fulfillment centers. The seller can enable removals for unsellable inventory only, for inventory subject to long-term storage fees only, or for both types of inventory. 

Again, the removal fee is charged on a per-item basis. Note that the inventory status changes to ‘Unfulfillable’ when inventory in an Amazon fulfillment center is not in sellable condition. Thus, such inventory is set aside.

Further, such inventory is likely to get disposed of automatically if the seller does not create a removal order within 30 days after Amazon notifies him of its required removal.

As mentioned earlier, an Amazon seller can submit a removal order to Amazon and get the unsellable inventory removed at any time.

VIII. Other Fees

In addition to the above-mentioned fees, an Amazon Seller may have to shell out an extra fee depending upon the product he is selling on Amazon or any other special case. The following table showcases a list of other fees that an Amazon Seller may have to incur.

Fee TypeDescription
Refund Administration FeeA merchant will have to pay a refund fee to Amazon in case he refunds a customer for an order for which he has already received payment.
Advertising FeeAn Amazon Seller can attract customers using Amazon Advertising cost-per-click, auction-based pricing model by setting the maximum amount he is willing to pay when a shopper clicks his ad.
FBA Small and LightAn Amazon Merchant can subscribe to a Small and Light program that offers reduced fulfillment costs on qualified items and can pass savings to his customers. 
Subscribe & Save for FBA A merchant can subscribe to Amazon’s Subscribe and Save program for discounted pricing, free shipping, and the convenience of regularly scheduled deliveries on eligible products.
FBA Dangerous Goods
Multi-Channel FulfillmentA seller can keep costs low with Amazon’s Muti-Channel Fulfillment program by paying one fee for pick, pack, and ship with tiered discounts on multi-unit orders.
FBA ExportA seller pays the local fulfillment fee from the single Amazon European marketplace. However, he pays a cross-border fee for each order shipped when he sells to customers of other marketplaces via the European Fulfillment Network (EFN).
Rental Book Service FeeAn Amazon Seller is expected to pay a rental book service fee of $5.00 for each rental in case he offers textbook rentals. 
Inventory Placement ServiceA seller has to send his inventory to a single fulfillment center. After receiving the shipment, Amazon then splits the inventory and sends it to different fulfillment centers based on the products shipped and the location from where they are shipped. The seller has to pay a per-unit service fee.
Amazon Partnered Carrier Program FeePartnered carriers offer deeply discounted rates to eligible sellers and the cost is billed to the seller’s account as an inbound transportation charge
Amazon Freight LTL shipping serviceFBA offers a pickup service for less-than-truckload (LTL) and full-truckload (FTL) shipments to select fulfillment centers. Amazon uses select Amazon-partnered carriers to help decrease the time and cost of getting seller’s inventory into its fulfillment network and making it available for purchase by customers.

Amazon Income

I. Sales

This refers to the amount that an Amazon Seller generates through fulfilling customer orders on Amazon. The sales amount includes the total product charges, that is, the price of the product sold multiplied by the quantity sold.

In addition to the product charges, the sales amount also includes the shipping charges that an Amazon seller collects from the customers to cover the shipment of orders. Also, the total sales amount includes sales tax collected from customers and charges for any promotion rebates.

In addition to all these charges, the total sales amount reflected in the seller’s orders also includes FBA inventory reimbursements and gift wrap credits.

II. Discounts and Promotions

The discounts and promotions provided by Amazon are one of the many ways Amazon helps in ensuring that customers find products at competitive prices. Such discounts and coupons to customers from seller prices on certain products are funded by Amazon. In these instances, sellers will receive the full payment for the order and pay referral fees based on the full item price that they set.

Such discounts do not affect the payment of Amazon sellers. This means they are paid for the full item price that they have set. Thus, it is showcased as income in the statement of operations of Amazon sellers.

III. Reimbursements

Amazon replaces the item with a new item of the same FNSKU or reimburses the seller for it. This happens only when an item sellers send to Amazon as part of the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service is lost or damaged at a facility or by a carrier operated by Amazon or on behalf of Amazon.

To calculate the reimbursement value, Amazon considers the price of an item by comparing several price indicators. This is because item prices tend to fluctuate over time and may vary widely from the seller to seller. As a result,  an estimated sale price for the item is determined and then the reimbursement amount is calculated using such price.

Since these reimbursements are funded by Amazon, it is an income for Amazon sellers. It is shown as income in the Profit and Loss Statement of the Amazon seller.

IV. Shipping Income

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) allows sellers to scale their business by choosing Amazon to handle order fulfillment, customer service, and returns.

The Amazon Partnered Carrier program offers discounts on shipments to Amazon fulfillment centers for both small parcel deliveries and truckload deliveries.

Partnered carriers offer deeply discounted rates, and the cost is billed to the seller’s account as an inbound transportation charge. To calculate the shipping cost, Amazon uses the billable weight. The billable weight is either the dimensional weight or the shipment weight, whichever is greater.

Thus, the discounted shipping cost is an income for the seller and is showcased in his income statement.

V. Other Income

The other income may include FBA liquidation, export duty, Cash-On-Delivery refund, the fee collected for certain payment methods, Gift Wrap charge, or the goodwill amount.

VI. Amazon Lending

Amazon offers funds to the sellers through Factoring. Factoring is a process in which the Amazon seller sells his accounts receivables to raise funds. The rates under this option are even higher than with traditional bank loans, but they are much easier to obtain.

In addition to this, Amazon sellers can also raise funds through Merchant Cash Advance (MCA). MCA is a cash advance that sellers receive based on the sale of their future credit card income. No regular fixed payments are applied – the lenders collect a preset percentage of their daily credit card sales.

Thus, all such funds are showcased as income in the income statement of the Amazon seller.

Specific Considerations for Amazon Accounting

Amazon sellers need to consider a few important things when it comes to bookkeeping. The following section explains the specific considerations that Amazon Sellers must take into account.

I. Method of Accounting

An Amazon Seller may prepare his books of accounts in either of the two ways: Cash Accounting or Accrual Accounting.

i. Cash Accounting

The most basic form of accounting is cash accounting. As a result, many small business owners use a cash basis accounting system. This system of accounting recognizes revenues and expenses are recognized when cash is paid or received for business transactions. 

In other words, a business records income only when the customer pays for the goods provided or services rendered. Similarly, expenses are recorded only when they are actually incurred by the business entity to undertake day-to-day operations.

However, this method of accounting may not be a good measure for Amazon FBA sellers. Note that cash accounting recognizes revenue and expenses only when cash is paid or received. But this method can pose a challenge for FBA sellers as they hold a lot of inventory.

Amazon pays its merchants every two weeks. If an Amazon Seller uses the cash accounting method to record transactions, the books may showcase misleading results. The books may showcase huge profits for some months whereas they may display losses for the other months.

Likewise, if an Amazon Seller spends too much cash in a given month for stocking inventory, it may seem that the seller incurred losses in such a month.

Besides this, an Amazon Seller must have a complete snapshot of his business to understand its financial performance. With the cash basis of accounting, it is challenging for an Amazon Seller to know the ongoing profitability of his business as the monthly figures can differ widely.

Thus, the disadvantage of cash basis accounting is that an Amazon Seller may not have accurate information on his actual earnings. 

ii. Accrual Accounting

Accrual accounting is an accounting method that measures the performance and position of an Amazon Merchant’s business by recognizing economic events. This is regardless of when cash transactions occur in his business.  Here recognizing means recording a transaction in books of accounts. 

The underlying concept in accrual accounting is that an Amazon Seller must recognize revenues when they are earned and expenses when they are incurred. This concept is based on the matching concept of accounting. 

Accordingly, the economic events of the seller’s business are recognized by matching the costs incurred with the revenue earned at the time when a transaction occurs.  It is regardless of whether cash has been paid or not. 

In this way, revenues are matched with expenses. And the net income or net loss of a seller’s business is determined. This is unlike the cash-based system where transactions are recognized when the cash is paid out or received.

This accounting method provides a more realistic view of the seller’s income and expenses over time. Thus, the accrual method of accounting overcomes the unpredictability ingrained in the cash basis of accounting.

II. Sales Tax On Amazon Sales

It is the responsibility of the online seller to determine whether or not he needs to collect sales tax depending on the location where he operates. 

Most states in the US enforce sales tax collection, except for a few states like Alaska and Oregon. An Amazon Seller is responsible for identifying his Tax obligations. 

This is in addition to the calculation, remittance, and reporting of all taxes within the seller’s obligation, regardless of his participation in Amazon’s Tax Calculation Service.

However, the following are the exceptions to the above rule:

  • Amazon automatically calculates, collects, or remits taxes on the seller’s behalf as per the applicable law
  • Amazon expressly agrees to receive taxes or other transaction-based charges on the merchant’s behalf. Such an agreement must be in connection with tax calculation services offered by Amazon and used by the merchant. 

In some jurisdictions, even local municipalities and districts can enforce their own additional sales taxes in addition to the taxes that the state’s mandates. Thus, business owners based in a particular area must research the state’s tax regulations and how they can stay compliant with them.

Typically, the law states a set of criteria to determine whether or not an online seller needs to collect sales tax through the internet. The general requirements for this tend to include that a business has:

a.) a sales tax nexus located in the area of its customers and

b.) a product that is deemed taxable within the state it is selling in

III. Bookkeeping for Amazon FBA Fees

There is a challenge with recording Amazon merchant fees into the books of accounts. The Merchant Account of a seller on Amazon credits the net sales amount into the bank account of the seller. 

This means Amazon deducts the FBA fees from the gross sales amount and credits the net amount into the merchant’s bank account. As a result, it becomes challenging for the Amazon seller to determine the FBA fees charged or the gross sales made.

For IRS purposes, Amazon files Form 1099-K to report the payment transactions they process for Amazon merchants or sellers for each calendar year. Such processed payment transactions may include Payment Card and Third Party Network Transactions.

Note that for IRS compliance proposes, Amazon needs to mention the gross amount of the payments processed by it for each merchant during the calendar year. Gross amount means the total dollar amount of the total payments processed for each merchant. This amount does not include any adjustments for credits, cash equivalents, discount amounts, fees, refunded amounts, or any other amounts. 

This means that the amount showcased on Form-1099K is different from the amount that gets deposited into the merchant’s bank account.

In addition to FBA fees, the amount received by the Amazon seller into his bank account may also include refunds, chargebacks, or holds. Thus, all such amounts are adjusted in the Gross Sales amount and the seller receives just the net amount into his bank account. 

However, Amazon’s Sales Report offers a snapshot of your orders and sales. This report will help you understand historical gross sales, units sold, and average order value.

Let’s consider an example to understand Bookkeeping for Amazon sellers.

Bookkeeping for Amazon Sellers Example

Say, ‘IKIGAI’ sells paper cups on Amazon. They make sales worth $1,000 that get deposited into their bank account. Their operating expenses are $100. Thus, IKIGAI’s net profit is $900.

Net Profit = Net Revenue – Operating Expenses

Net Profit = $1,000 – $100 = $900

Now, let’s consider these numbers for adjusting Gross Sales and Merchant Fees in bookkeeping. 

IKIGAI made sales worth $1,000 on Amazon and spent $100 in the form of merchant fees. Thus, the Gross Sales that IKIGAI will record in its books of accounts will be $1,100. Further, IKIGAI will showcase the merchant fees of $100 as an operating expense.

Net Profit = Gross Revenue – Operating Expenses – Merchant Fees

Net Profit = $1,100 – $100 – $100 = $900

Note that once IKIGAI adjusts the merchant fees, it gets the Gross Revenue and the merchant fees separately on its books of accounts. This representation complies with the IRS requirement of Filing Form 1099-K.

The following is the summary of the payment information that an Amazon seller receives from Amazon. This summary showcases the seller’s current total balance, available funds, and recent payouts across all account types. It also allows the seller to get a breakdown of that balance in an account:

Beginning Balance: The amount carried over from the previous settlement period including account level reserves and failed disbursements (if any).
Sales: The amount generated through your orders, consisting of:
Product Charges: Your price is multiplied by the quantity sold.
Shipping: Collected from customers to cover shipment of orders.
Tax: Sales tax collected from customers.
Promo Rebates: Charges for any promotion rebates.
Other: This includes, but is not limited to, FBA inventory reimbursements and gift wrap credits.
Refunds:
– Refunded Expenses: The amount covering fees charged by Amazon and promo rebates.
Refunded Sales: The amount covering customer order payments such as product sales, shipping, gift wrap, concessions, and tax.
Expenses: Charges made to your account consisting of:
Amazon Fees: This includes, but is not limited to, referral fees, monthly professional selling fees (if applicable), FBA fulfillment fees, chargebacks for shipping, and gift wrap.
FBA Fees: This includes, but is not limited to non-order fees such as storage of inventory at our fulfillment centers, removal order, and reimbursement and balance adjustments.
Cost of Advertising: The cost incurred for advertising.
Other: Miscellaneous charges which can include coupon redemption fees and Amazon Lending payments.
Account Level Reserves: The amount of money that is reserved to ensure that you have enough funds to fulfill any claims or chargebacks. For more information, go to What is an account level reserve.

What Makes Amazon Bookkeeping Different From Most Other Businesses? 

Amazon bookkeeping differs from other businesses in terms of income and expenses. The incomes that an Amazon seller may earn by fulfilling orders on Amazon may vary from the incomes generated by a normal business owner. It depends on the policies and procedures that are adopted by the Amazon marketplace in delivering goods and services to the customers.

Likewise, there are certain expenses that a seller on Amazon has to incur to deliver goods to the customers. These expenses are separate from the expenses that a normal business owner incurs.  

The following is a template of the Income statement for an Amazon seller. This template is taken from Grilla ROI as they have done a great job in listing out the expenses and incomes of an Amazon seller. These statements will help Amazon sellers in understanding how Amazon Bookkeeping is different from most other businesses.
