FBA Reconciliation

Click here for information on this function in Sellercloud’s original interface.
Sellercloud offers an FBA Reconciliation report that shows discrepancies between units that should be in FBA and those that are currently in FBA.

While Amazon provides a per-shipment reconciliation report, Sellercloud’s FBA Reconciliation report reconciles your entire inventory at FBA in a more comprehensive manner. This report compiles data from multiple Amazon reports, including all orders, returns, reimbursements, removals, etc., as well as from FBA inbound shipments in Sellercloud. All data is loaded onto a single page to provide the expected quantity at FBA.

Filing a claim must be done through Amazon’s Shipment Reconciliation tool, located on the “c” tab on each shipment’s summary page. Read more about that here.

  1. Click Settings > Client Settings > select Enable FBA Reconciliation Page.
