Enhancements: Updated Profit Calculator and an Option to Display the Profit Column in the Listings Table

We've updated our profit calculator a couple weeks ago thanks to a customer suggestion. He needed a way to input his other costs, such as shipping, taxes, and fees so he could see his total cost and get a more accurate view of his profits. He also asked if we could provide a way to display the profit as a column in the listings table and be able to select the type of profit data to show.

We thought all these are a great idea and something that our other customers would find useful as well so we took care of it right away.

You can see in the screenshot above that in addition to your acquisition cost, you can now also input your tax rate, the Amazon referral fee percentage, your actual shipping cost, and other fees that may apply. Below the fields, you can then see in real …

Main Differences between Repricers:

The main differences are ease of use, reliability, price, in-built pricing rules, advanced features like being able to exclude certain sellers i.e. FBA or non FBA and the ability for the repricer to intelligently reprice up as well as down (this is vital as it is the way you increase profits at the same time as increasing sales).

Web Based vs. Downloadable Program: You may also notice that some repricers are downloadable programs rather than being web based. By the very nature of Amazon being an online business in the cloud it is best to …
