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. These common costs and fees have their own description line, such as "Tax" or "FBA Fees".

The truth is, however, that Amazon has scores of "Other" transactional line items (see sprawling lists at end of this article), and we cannot dedicate a line for every one on the dashboard summary views. For excruciating detail, visit your date range's corresponding Payout Report, where all line items that pertain to your payout report are neatly aggregated by ASIN for you. 

For the purposes of this article, the many "Other" transactional line items are categorized together as "Other Transactions" (see screenshot below).

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'll likely see $0.00 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. 

In that case, as shown above, "Other Transactions" will have values, which again you may learn more about by delving into the Payout Report in HelloProfit, corresponding to your selected date range. Be aware that payout reporting shows values from 2 week intervals, so only if your date range selected on the dashboard somehow aligns neatly with Amazon's often midday payout reporting cut-offs, would you get the numbers to exactly align. (Down the line, HelloProfit does plan to make the Payout Reports thoroughly searchable, as well as provide a function to display exactly which line items comprise the "Other Transaction" figure for your custom date range. Stay tuned!) For now however, know that the "Other Transaction" field is combining real elements pulled from your Amazon settlement report for your selected date range. If any figure does not make sense in your own accounting, be sure to let us know.
