Now it's time to continue with the next steps to edit your website pages. Usually there are 2 types of content that will be edited, which are the following.
Return rate is a metric that calculates the number of returns per unit sold. This is an important metric to track as it can indicate customer satisfaction with your products. A high return rate may indicate a problem with your product or pricing. The formula is calculated as:
Refund Rate = (Return Units/Total Unit sold)*100%
Inventory metrics are typically tracked per SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) level. All the below metrics are instantaneous or current basis, based on the last time the report was fetched from Seller Central. Currently, inventory data gets fetched every 6 hours.
Size tier refers to the size and weight of a product. Amazon assigns different size tiers to products based on their dimensions and weight. This can affect the storage and fulfillment fees associated with the product. As a seller, it is important to understand the size tier of your products in order to properly price them and maximize profits.
The size tier is listed as below
Fulfillable/Available inventory refers to the number of products available for sale, that can be picked, packed and shipped. This is an important metric to track as it can indicate the stock availability and help you make informed decisions about inventory management.
Inbound displays the quantity of that product in assigned to shipping plans, in transit to fulfillment centers, or being processed at the fulfillment center.
Inbound working refers to the process of receiving new products into your inventory. This can include receiving products from suppliers, or transferring products from one warehouse to another. As a seller, it is important to track and monitor your inbound working in order to ensure that your products are being received and stored efficiently.
Inbound Shipped calculates the number of products that have been shipped but not yet received. It shows the number of units you have notified Amazon about and have provided a tracking number.
Inbound Receiving calculates the number of products that are currently in the process of being received. The number of units that have not yet been received at an Amazon fulfillment center for processing, but are part of an inbound shipment with some units that have already been received and processed.
Reserved Quantity includes Pending Customer Orders, FC Transfer and FC Processing quantities.
Pending Customer Order refers to the number of units reserved for customer orders.
FC Transfer refers to the process of moving products from one fulfillment center to another. As a seller. it is important to track and monitor your transfers in order to ensure that your products are being stored and shipped efficiently.
FC Processing refers to the units that have been sidelined at the fulfillment center for additional processing.
Unfuillable Quantity refers to the total number of units in Amazon's fulfillment network in unsellable condition.
The types of unfulfillable quantity is listed as below:
Researching Quantity refers to the number of misplaced or warehouse damaged units that are actively being confirmed at our fulfillment centers.
Days of Inventory (DOI)
DOI is a metric that calculates estimated number of days that a product stays in fulfillment center before it is sold. We use Sales in the last 30 days to estimate it, the formula is calculated as:
DOI = (Fulfillable Inventory + FC Transfer +Total Inbound)/Sales Units in last 30 days * 30
Inventory Ages (Days)
Inventory ages (days) is a metric that calculates the number of days that a product has been in inventory.
Inventory age units = Fulfillable + Reserved - Pending Removal Units.
Inventory Age is captured daily whereas Fulfillable units are captured in real time. Hence, there might be a temporary mismatch between the two due to different data sync frequency.
This is an important metric to track as it can indicate how long your products have been in stock and help you make informed decisions about inventory management.
Estimated Excess Units
Estimated excess are units for which we forecast that it will likely cost you more to keep in stock and pay storage costs than to reduce by advertising, liquidating, or removing.This is an important metric to track as it can indicate potential inventory problems and help you make informed decisions about inventory management.
180-365 - Estimated long-term storage fee
The estimated long-term storage fee for products that have been in the inventory for 180-365 days if they kept unsold after 365 days.
365+ days - Estimated long-term storage fee
The estimated long-term storage fee for products that have been in the inventory for over 365 days at next charge.
Total - Estimated long-term storage fee
The estimated number of units that will be subject to long-term storage fees (if applicable) on your next charge date, assuming no further sales. It includes estimated long-term storage fee for the units under 180-365 days and the long term storage fee for the units over 365 days at next charge.
The Long-Term Storage Fee is assessed based on the total volume in cubic feet of units that have been stored in Amazon fulfillment centers for at least 365 days. The long-term storage fee per unit is $6.90.
Per SKU amounts are calculated as:
Long-term storage fee = (365+ units) x (per-unit-volume in cubic feet of each inventory unit) x $6.90 (charge applicable beginning with August 15, 2015, fee assessment).
Total Estimated long-term storage fee = (estimated 180-365 units fee) + (365+ units fee at next charge)
Q: Does SellerFusion has 3PL warehouse inventory data?
A: Unfortunately, now we are unable to get 3PL warehouse inventory data integrated. However, you can use Warehouse Feature to manually create your own warehouse and manage inventory there via shipments. We will be working on 3PL data integration along with the warehouse feature improvements.
Amazon Inventory: The FBA Inventory API lets you programmatically retrieve information about inventory in Amazon's fulfillment network. Get FBA Inventory Reports data for the listing, condition, disposition, and quantity to help with day-to-day inventory management and snapshot.
Amazon Long-term Storage Fee: This report includes product details, quantity, per-unit volume and the total amount for each SKU to which the long-term storage fee was applied. See the Long-Term Storage Charges report.
