QuickBooks accounting for Amazon sales is easier than you think.

You can take the stress out of an accounting mess.

Gathering your Amazon numbers can be a mind-boggling exercise.

There are lots of options for accounting and choosing the one that fits your business model is so important.

Maybe you have read all the claims and special features associated with different software and spreadsheets.

It can all be rather confusing, especially when you’re not really sure what you need.

You may have tried several versions of record keeping from Excel, Google Sheets, and legal pads.

All these methods will work for a while, but become tedious and overwhelming as your business grows.

Pulling reports from Seller Central and Inventory Lab, without a good system of utilizing the reports, will create a giant mess no CPA wants to tackle.

Your CPA may have suggested using QuickBooks for accounting, but offered little help in deciding on the version.

With high hopes and determination, you start investigating the Intuit website, office supply stores and Google trying to determine which one you need.  Hey, you may have even polled the Facebook group.  Desktop, Online, Mac, PC, Pro, Premier, Enterprise.  Yikes, who knows? 

A lot of Amazon sellers will give up and try to do other things to grow the business, while neglecting or avoiding the whole accounting subject.

Now is the time to make a decision.

Accounting may be your least favorite thing about running your Amazon business.

I get that.  Accounting is not as sexy as being a super hero, until tax season comes around and your numbers are ready for the CPA on January 1st.  Now that is definitely a super power! 

Bookkeeping is a necessary part of any business.  You can’t really run one without it.

It’s not just for tax season, though.

Running reports like the Profit and Loss or the Balance Sheet is the only way you can really tell if your business is making money.

The health of your business can be measured in these reports.

          • Balance Sheet shows your assets like cash, checking and value of inventory
          • Balance Sheet also tracks liabilities like loans, credit cards and sales tax payable
          • The Profit and Loss tracks income and expenses like Amazon sales and selling fees, as well as other business expenses like labels, scales, Scotty peelers. software, subscriptions, Cost of Goods Sold, etc. 

If you’re ready to get  your accounting in order without struggling to learn QuickBooks by yourself, we have a course that will help.

This Course Was Designed With You In Mind

Included are video lessons with PDF downloads and Excel worksheets for every learning style.

The videos are short and to the point.

No matter your experience level, you’ll get what you need to build confidence in your accounting abilities.

With QuickBooks Pro Desktop, you’ll pay no monthly fees.  Simple Start is a QuickBooks Online plan and costs about $25 per month.  Choose either the software installed on your PC or Mac or the Online plan.  I’ll help you decide as we move through this informational page.

Buy with confidence.  If you choose the wrong course, we’ll swap it out for you.

Being an Amazon FBA seller myself with over 30 years experience in accounting, I know what is important to you and what helps make your job a bit easier.  While this course will not hit every situation or need of every business, it will be a great tool to get you going and answer lots of questions about how QB works with Amazon business models.

Tracking Inventory, Sales Tax Payable and Bookkeeping are all supported in the QuickBooks Pro Desktop. (the software that is installed on your desktop or laptop computer, PC or Mac) Keeping up with Accounts Receivable and Payable, as well as, customizing Invoices and running all your Business Reports is a snap too.  Scanning and attaching receipts for each transaction is also a plus. No more piles of paper to sort through. Tax season just got easier!  With the Desktop version there are no additional monthly fees. You can even create multiple company files at no additional cost.

QuickBooks Online offers multiple plans.  I chose Simple Start for the online version of this course because it is easy to use and is least expensive of all the plans at about $25 per month.  We will track inventory value, cost of goods sold, income and expenses, plus learn to run a Profit & Loss, as well as a Balance Sheet.  Sellers who choose the Online plan usually do so because they want to add automation.  This is possible, but not taught in the course.  Scanning receipts to attach to transactions is a function we teach. With Online, each plan only allows for one company file.  If you need to run more than one business, you’ll need additonal subscriptions.

Online banking with rules added will semi-automate the process of inputting transactions in all versions of QuickBooks.

If you have several revenue streams, you’ll love this package for its comprehensive approach.  You’ll walk through purchasing your software and installing it to running customized business reports for the Mac or PC versions.  With the Online Simple Start course, you’ll walk through choosing the plan, setting it up to running customized reports.  Once you see how QuickBooks works with Amazon you will be ready to adapt it to your other streams.

I recently started a new business as an Amazon FBA seller. I knew I wanted to use Quickbooks to keep track of the financial end, but I had no idea how to set it up for such a unique online business model. I searched online for help and found just the right course that I could take at home – Amazon Sellers Guide to QuickBooks Pro! The course addresses Amazon seller needs, is very affordable, and I was able to proceed at my own speed. Within a few days, I had Quickbooks and up and running!

If You Are Not Tracking Inventory, You May Be Losing Money And Not Even Know It.

Our course will teach you how to track your inventory and so much more.

Southermomflair’s Amazon bookkeeping course is an excellent course for FBA sellers that want to get a grip on their accounting books without learning becoming too overwhelming!  It provided me with a high-level yet detailed approach to accounting for Amazon FBA with Quickbooks that is easy to follow.  The videos are short and sweet and best of all straightforward on what and where to click.   The Excel worksheet in the course is an absolute gem, essential and excellent in capturing the core details of FBA sales and expenses while tracking inventory is made a synch.  The ability also to continuously review the videos and explanations has helped me not only to analyze but understand better the various  aspects of my business and to get clearer on how Quickbooks can be transparently used so that I can concentrate on growing my business.  One of the best features, though, is the support for this course.  It  is simply TOP-NOTCHED!  Any question(s) you might have will be answered thoroughly and there is a great comfort level knowing there’s years of experience on the other end.  Guess that’s that Southern Hospitality!

Vicki’s course has been a great starting point for me in terms of using QB to better track and control my business. It’s not a one-size-fits-all thing, and (for me, at least) it didn’t cover everything that applies to my business or tell me exactly how to do everything I’d want or need to do with the software. It has, however, been a great resource for learning how to develop a unique QuickBooks system as a business tool. Vicki has been really great about answering questions she hasn’t covered in videos, helping me adapt what she has here for my situation when I don’t see how to make it work “out of the box”, and generally just being responsive and enthusiastic about making sure I get what I need out of the resources she’s provided. I’d definitely recommend this course as a resource for someone taking an active role in running their business better.

I’d like to take a minute to introduce myself.

Vicki McCay quickbooks for amazon sellers mac pc simple start online salesMy name is Vicki McCay.  I’m a wife and homeschooling mother, who has an Amazon FBA business and does accounting for three other local small businesses.  With many years in automotive (double-entry) accounting under my belt, QuickBooks was a logical solution when we started a 401(c)3 mission organization almost twenty years ago.  Learning it was hard, but with perseverance and the experience in the car business, I succeeded in setting up the accounting system for the non-profit.

When I left the automotive business to be a full-time mommy to our son, I accidentally got a part-time job as a personal assistant and bookkeeper!  

After a few years of the part-time gig, I decided to make a go of staying home again.  I started investigating options for what we’d do when my husband retired.  We’ll be debt free, except for living expenses – utilities and food.  We won’t need much, but we will need some.  So, one day I stumbled upon Amazon FBA.  It intrigued me because I liked the fact that it was something I could do without being tied to the house or inventory.  We want to be able to travel on the spur of the moment, you know.

So, I bought some courses and set sail on a great adventure.

Uh,oh…storms ahead.  Amazon is an animal that didn’t play well with my accounting system.  There had to be some adjustments.  Rest assured, I preserved until I found the solution to posting invoices, payment statements and tracking inventory, along with sales tax payable.  I won’t lie, the mechanics were hard to workout.   I spent many long, sleepless nights in anguish.  I thought there was no solution and I would be required to get some outside vendors to do all of it.  Slowly, the fog cleared.  Falling back on my automotive accounting years, I was able to create a process and a posting worksheet that was the solution to the payment statement issues.  Then I came up with a process of posting mass invoices.  That sealed the deal, QuickBooks is the way to go!

Being a teacher at heart, I share what I have learned.
