HelloProfit hunts down every Dollar and every Dime, to show you the most accurate numbers of your profitability, expenses and fees.

In order to be as accurate as possible, we need to account for things like cancellations, returns, removals and more. Following Amazon's groupings, we categorize various credits and expenses in the Est. Profit breakdowns bubbles as shown below. Each expandable category is led with a small black triangle, which you can toggle to reveal subitems:

Other Transactions is one such category. Toggling it's dropdown arrow reveals all the items Amazon has provided which together bear Amazon's "Other Transactions" designation:

The truth is, Amazon has scores of "Other" transactional line items (see sprawling lists at end of this article), so we only include items relevant to your account for the date range and parameters chosen on your Merchant or Product Dashboard report.

Also, after each of your Settlement Report has processed, you can also see all your Other Transactions in that date range's corresponding Payout Report, where all line items that pertain to your payout report are neatly aggregated by ASIN for you. 

When Do These "Other" Transactions Appear?

These types of transactions don't occur on a daily basis like sales and refunds. Amazon includes / accounts for them in your payout, that is, every two weeks. Therefore, you may see very little in this field, unless you're performing a historical search that includes a range for which HelloProfit has previously pulled and processed a bi-weekly settlement report.
