Product Profit Details (Profit by Product Details)

This report can show FBA inbound shipping costs by product when filtering by “Transaction” for the date type and “FBA” for the channel. 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.

Here’s how it looks in this report. This same feature is also available for the Profit by Product Summary.

Requirement: Using this workflow requires choosing the new client setting “Include FBA Inbound Shipping Costs in Profit by Product reports.” This disables the client setting “Include FBA Inbound Shipping Costs in Order Item P&L,” removing the option to apply the shipping costs as an adjustment on the orders from the FBA inbound shipment’s Action menu.

This report shows profit and loss for each SKU’s order and non-order transactions on your selected date or date range:

  • Order transactions – These are 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
    • New! FBA inbound shipping costs (see note at top)
    • Product fees for Amazon’s sponsored ads’ per-day “Spend” (if imported from Seller Central’s Sponsored Products Ad report)
Non-order transactions only appear if you choose “Transaction” as the Date Type filter.

To access this report in Sellercloud, click Reports, then either:

  • P&L Reports > Product Profit Details; OR
  • Transaction Reports > Profit by Product Details

Take a look at a sample grid report with each SKU’s transaction details:
