Did you know that the Amazon may owe you hundreds of dollars?
Amazon manages all the inventory of FBA vendors. However, despite their own control, unexpected situations can happen to inventory.
Amazon has a policy to refund the seller if the failing party is him. But the problem is that FBA sellers don’t always get this money back automatically as it should be.
For this reason, FBA dealers should go to their accounts and check if their inventory that is damaged, lost or completely unavailable is processed into the vendor accounts.
How Will You Use Amazon Reports to Get Your Money Back?
Have you ever looked at the report settings section in Seller Central? It’s a very overwhelming place. Many vendors probably have no idea what it is and why you should use it. There are many sections in this section such as Stranded Inventory, Reserved Inventory, Inventory Adjustments.
The good news is that some of these reports can really help you borrow Amazon.
