Costs and fees settings

The main costs/fees that can be adjusted are Cost of goods, Other fees, Shipping cost, and VAT(%). To start managing data related to the product costs/fees, open the relevant settings form by clicking the value on the Product costs page grid.

The cost and fees settings functionality is represented by Cost of goods, Other fees, Shipping cost, and VAT(%) settings forms that provide the options to:

  • manage costs/fees for products for specific periods;

  • create custom cost/fee types and save them for the next cost/fee periods;

  • transfer costs/fees for the product to different marketplaces;

  • enable synchronization with Repricer for an auto upload of information on multiple products.


The option to view and edit costs and fees settings forms is available for the Admin role or for the users with the relevant permission (BA product costs > Manage is enabled).

Cost of goods

Other fees

Shipping costs

These three forms operate similarly and consist of:

  1. Product general information: product name, ASIN, SKU, Amazon customer account name, and product image. 

  2. Transfer costs button: enables transferring costs/fees from a current marketplace to one or multiple marketplaces.

  3. Repricer section: shows the value for the current period taken from Repricer.

  4. Cost/fee periods;

  5. Marketplaces of the product.

Cost and fee periods

Start dates

The start dates of the cost/fee periods are displayed on the left side of the form. It marks the beginning of the cost/fee period. 


  • The first period is set from infinity to infinity, so there cannot be any date. Condition: Repricer section displays no value.

  • The latest date marks the start date of the current value in the Repricer section. Condition: Repricer section displays a value.

The cost/fee period start date can be changed by clicking the Edit button.

Creating a new period

To create a new cost/fee period click the Split period option and choose the start date of the period.

The logic of adding cost/fee periods ensures no time gaps because all periods are united in one chain in order to avoid missing any data.

In this particular example there are four cost periods:

  1. from infinity to November 30, 2022 (period value: 25,00 €);

  2. from December 1, 2022 to December 14, 2022 (period value: 25,00 €);

  3. from December 15, 2022 to December 20, 2022 (period value: 250,00 €);

  4. from December 21, 2022 to infinity (period value: 850,00 €).

Adding future cost/fee periods is disabled when synchronization with Repricer is enabled. 

Period values

The cost/fee period values are displayed on the right side of the form and show the total value for the particular period.

The current cost/fee period value section is always highlighted. This value can also be found on the Product costs page grid.

After filling in all the required fields, click the Save button, and only after that all changes will be saved and transferred to the system. The updated values will be displayed on the Product costs page grid.

To create a custom cost/fee type, enter the name of the new type in the Cost type / Fee type field and click the plus button.

Once created, the custom cost/fee type is saved for all products: when editing another product, the added custom cost/fee type will appear in the drop-down list too.

The Default cost/fee type can be neither edited nor deleted.

In the Cost of goods settings form, the Default cost type has been replaced by the Net purchase price, Customs duty, and Inbound shipment. Neither of them can be edited or deleted.

Currency exchange rate

When adding a new cost/fee type, the value can be submitted in any currency chosen from the drop-down list. 

By default, the current (present day) exchange rate is provided. 

The total value is always displayed in the currency of the current marketplace. When setting the cost/fee currency different from the current marketplace currency, the Total value (in the upper right) will be recalculated accordingly.

To adjust the exchange rate, click the Edit currency exchange rate button next to the currency, enter the required exchange rate and select the tick icon.

The exchange rate edited by the customer is not attached to a certain cost/fee type. Every time when a new cost/fee type is created, the marketplace currency is set by default.

Currency exchange rate editing is disabled when setting values for the costs/fees periods in future.

Editing VAT period value

To edit the VAT(%) period value, click the Edit button opposite the corresponding value, enter the value and click the confirm button.

Deleting cost/fee period

The Delete button is unavailable when the Repricer section shows no value and the first period was created manually. This period cannot be deleted. It can only be set to a zero value.


Marketplaces, where the product is presented for sale, are shown in the upper left of the form. They are set when enabling the BA module.
