How Does the Dynamic Break-Even Feature Work?

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

This feature checks who are the sellers on Amazon and 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 (in 80% of the cases there will be no tax charged at checkout). Please note this can lead you to have losses when tax will be added (20% of the cases).
