How Does the Dynamic Break-Even Feature Work?

Learn how to use the dynamic break-even feature and be more competitive with our Amazon-sourced listings

This feature checks who the sellers on Amazon are and makes changes your listings' break-even accordingly. It was added as a request from our sellers who follow this pricing method. They in fact take a risk by having a lower break-even which does not include the state tax charges on Amazon.com. 

If you check this box, you will have to set up a break-even for products that are 'Sold By Amazon' and for items that are 'Not Sold By Amazon'.
If you choose to work with dynamic break-even, it will override the default break-even you set, and will only consider this new dynamic break-even.

Sold by Amazon break-even: a higher break-even is needed because Amazon as a seller usually charges state tax (0%-10%). To learn more about US taxation for each state click here

Not Sold By Amazon Break Even: A lower break-even can be placed. Please note this can lead you to have losses if tax will be added and you didn't set enough profit, to begin with.
