    • Total Sales: The sales revenue here, without deducting returns, is calculated in the same way as Amazon seller back-end.
    • Net Sales: The net sales amount here is reduced by the refund date. This statistical method is more in line with the financial calculation method and will not change the net sales on the previous date due to refund.
    • Gross Profit: Gross Profit = Net Sales - Cost
    • Gross Margin:Gross Margin = Profit/ Net Sales
    • Cost: The cost includes item costs, shipping fees, referral fees, FBA fees, advertising spend (authorization is needed) and promotion, etc.

Note: Because other costs include many metrics, such as Amazon Service Fee, Inventory Fee, Lightning Deal Fee, and so on, it’s unlikely to be sorted out into each ASIN. Therefore, to view the cost please check the Store Sales Analysis.

In the Settings, you can modify your calculation methods.
