What is the Difference Between Reshipping, Inbound Shipping, and COG?

  • Inbound Shipping: Cost of shipping your product from the production site
  • Reshipping: Cost of shipping from a storage location directly to an Amazon Fulfillment Center using Amazon’s freight forwarding services. This section will be blank for users that do not use reshipping services.
  • Cost of Goods: Cost of labor and materials to produce your product

INBOUND SHIPPING

To calculate expenses, Fetcher needs to know the cost of shipping your product from the production site. For many FBA sellers, this is the cost of using a Freight Forwarding service to ship from China to the United States. 

This expense does NOT include using Amazon's freight forwarding services (that is "Reshipping").

Please enter the shipping cost per unit.

If you shipped 1000 widgets from China to Los Angeles for $2,000, the shipping cost per unit is $2 ($2,000 / 1000 widgets = $2 per).

If you  shipping service, this section will be $0. 

RESHIPPING

Fetcher automatically collects this data from your Seller Central account and adds it to your shipping expenses that get rolled into Profit calculations. 

If you don't use Amazon's freight-forwarding services to transport goods to the Amazon FCs, you will NOT have this expense. It will be blank. 

COST OF GOODS

To calculate expenses, Fetcher needs to know how much it costs to manufacture or acquire your product. For many FBA sellers, this is how much you are paying a supplier to China to produce your product.

Please enter the shipping cost  per unit.

If you bought 1000 widgets from a supplier in China for $5,000 the Cost of Goods per unit is $5 ($5,000 / 1000 widgets = $5 per unit)
