It always used to be: total sales price - Amazon fees - shipping cost = funds that would become available as soon as I shipped an item. The income and deductions were near each other in transaction view - all showing the order number they pertained to. The settlement period showed the orders I was being paid for.
Now, however, that is not the case. For example, if I look at my settlement period from 6/11/22-6/15/22, it shows the orders I shipped on those days, and the shipping labels I purchased for them. HOWEVER, I was not paid for those orders! I won’t be paid for them for weeks! But the shipping for them was deducted! It’s cash accounting you say. Well fine, but that doesn’t make it right.
At the beginning of the transaction view, it starts with “Previous statement’s unavailable balance” then shows all of the orders I shipped during those dates, as well as the shipping labels I purchased for them, and ends with “Unavailable Balance”. There are ZERO details as to what those “unavailable” balances contain! There is NO WHERE that shows what orders I’m actually being paid for. Previous unavailable balance + all the orders in transaction view - all the shipping labels in transaction view - Unavailable Balance does not equal my disbursement amount! This is total BS.
I didn’t say Amazon was double dipping. I said it seemed like it. Previously shipping was taken right out of that order’s income. Now, that is not the case!
Well of course they deduct it from your funds You’re right, she was correct in saying this.
You do have to pay for the label. Yep, she was right again.
But what she said first
You must mean Amazon is deducting the cost of shipping labels when you purchase the label through Amazon (as being the reason I was upset) IS WRONG. That is not at all what I meant.
Being snarky, rude and sarcastic was wrong as well.
I would like to thank you both for reminding me why I typically do not bother commenting in this toxic forum nor posting here for help. Lesson (re)learned.
