If you’re new to selling on Amazon (or a new seller in general), it can be hard to get a proper grasp on how much revenue you’re making. After marketplace fees, shipping costs and any other transactional deduction, it can get confusing figuring out your actual profit.

Running through the numbers on your own or in excel can be time consuming (not to mention a headache in the making).

    Thanks for this article and all the links. I have learned that were Amazon can be a bit brutal is with oversized products. Though it’s really not their fault since the larger products cost more to ship. For the most part, Amazon FBA is really helpful and allows smaller businesses to compete because it costs less.
