  11. 30D Range: Inventory range based on sales over the last 30 days.

  12. Minimum range: Here you will be shown the minimum range you defined in the SKU data (refer to settings / Amazon Seller Account).

That means that this is a theoretical value.

  18. LTSF #: As outlined above, only that the number of articles in question is displayed here.

  19. Price / Lowest price: Your price as well as the currently lowest price of a competitor (if available)

Reimbursements

For marketplace sellers who ship their goods in the FBA program, the following may apply:

  1. the customer buys a product that is shipped via FBA.
  2. The customer is dissatisfied and requests a refund.
  3. Amazon refunds the customer the purchase price and debits the merchant's seller account at the same time.
  4. The customer now has 30 days to return the item.
  5. If the customer does not return the item, Amazon will usually refund the merchant the amount. Amazon has up to 45 days to do this after the order has been placed.

AMALYTIX now checks daily on all orders younger than 18 months, but older than 45 days if the following three conditions are met:

  1. The order has been refunded by Amazon and the seller's account was debited.
  2. The goods have not yet been returned.
  3. Amazon did not refund you.

If all three conditions apply, AMALYTIX will display the underlying order on the "Refunds" page.

In this case, you can apply to Amazon for a possible refund.

Here are a few tips on how to proceed:

  1. Ideally, check each case manually. Have you perhaps told the customer that he does not need to return the goods? If so, of course you cannot request a refund in this case.
  2. Open a case in Seller Central. Do not add more than about 3 possible refund cases. Give the customer service representative all the information he/she needs to check.

Inbound Shipments

Here we show you your current and past inbound shipments. If an inbound shipment has the status CLOSED check for any differences between what you put into the boxes and what Amazon added to your inventory.
