Of course, the main focus here is for those selling as private label sellers. SellerMobile is definitely a way to go for private label. And in this blog post, we’ll talk a bit more about inventory restock feature that assures you’re on top of your inventory management.
The tool is integrated in 16 Amazon FBA marketplaces as of now and has most of users in the US and European marketplaces.
To start using the tool, you simply need to connect your Seller Central account to SellerMobile software. It takes a couple of hours for SellerMobile to populate your data.
Now let’s see how does it look inside.
SellerMobile dashboard walk-through
There’s one more good thing about the tool – you can use SellerMobile either on the desktop or on your mobile phone. Actually, it initially started as a mobile app and then evolved into a well-developed software that covers various aspect of Amazon FBA business.
Once you enter the dashboard, you immediately see your sales data as well as costs and fees, such as Amazon FBA fees, PPC ads costs, FBA storage fees, profit and margin, and so on:
Performance trends analytics. Just below the above table, you will find performance trends analytics that shows you how your sales been doing overtime:
The global dashboard gives you an overview of how your sales are performing across all marketplaces. You can compare the data in terms of sales, costs, ptofit, etc. It gives you an idea on how different your sales are in certain marketplaces hence you understand which parts you need to improve in your business.
To make a real impact to your Amazon FBA business, you need to look at the individual ASIN.
To help you out with it, SellerMobile has an inventory tab on their dashboard where you can find a complete breakdown of each of your ASINs:
Here you see all the sales data of a certain ASIN.
But what are the key metrics you REALLY need to focus on?
Key metrics to look at
When we talk about Amazon FBA sales, we often use revenue as an indicator of how successfully we sell on Amazon. In fact, what you actually need to look at is profit & margins that really defines how your business is doing.
For this, on SellerMobile, you have the ability to add the cost of goods to your product so you know exactly what your product margins are.
There are a few ways to do so, se let’s take a look:
Here you have a price calculator that estimates your product price based on the information you fill into the “Update Item Costs” section.
The main point of the feature is to estimate what margin you need in order to make a good profit.
Restocking and inventory management for Amazon FBA
SellerMobile uses 12 different algorithms to forecast how much you are going to sell in the near future.
Here you see a table with different colors that indicates certain data:
- Blue represents your sales data for the previous year
- Green shows the data for this year
- Orange stands for projected sales that might happen in the future
The last indicator lets you set your inventory up properly for the upcoming sales.
However, you can’t forget there are many moving components that affects forecast data that the algorithm wouldn’t know about. For example, it cannot foresee your cashflow or other external factors that can affect your sales (having in mind the current worldwide situation).
This is exactly why you need to specify it separately in the Override section:
It is very important to do so since the algorithm can project the future forecasts more accurately.
Having the right mindset when restocking
Restocking your inventory is something that EVERY Amazon seller needs to deal with.
When it comes to the right mindset, you need to do your restocking on a regular, scheduled basis, meaning you wouldn’t want to restock your inventory only when you start running out of stock.
This is the operational task that you can easily outsource to your assistant – as a seller, you might want to focus on more essential parts of the business, rather than dealing with restocking regularly.
Once again, SellerMobile comes to the picture here since it gives you a clear forecast of when and how much inventory you need to restock. Using the data, you are enabled to easily make these kind of decisions.
This is a highly-recommended tool to use for your Amazon FBA inventory management so you don’t have lost sales nor overstock.
Safety stock and restock lead time explained
Another thing that the algorithm estimates is safety stock. It gives you a clearer picture of how many days worth of inventory do you want to have.
Restock lead time. It basically means how long does it take for your inventory to go from a supplier to an Amazon warehouse. This is kind of a timeframe you need to set for yourself.
So on SellerMobile, every ASIN is connected with its supplier, so the software automatically suggests you how much time and inventory you need and tells you how much days you have left until you run out of stock.
All in all, having a good restocking system because it reduces logistical costs and you are in control of your cashflow.
Restock plans and creating your own warehouses
One of the benefits of having restock plans on one tool, i.e. SellerMobile, is that you don’t need to have different Excel sheets and analyze high amounts of data. Instead, you can filter out at what information you want to see:
Also, you can create your own warehouse within the tool using restock plans. You can specify where you want your products to be shipped from and have it everything put together in one plan.
