Mapping Amazon SKUs, fees and other services to QuickBooks inventory, non-inventory and service items in Entriwise
If you use QuickBooks Online and lack a good understanding of accounting principles, we strongly advise to opt-in for Entriwise auto-configuration of Amazon fees, charges and promotions in your QuickBooks company file.
There are four types of mapping items
amazon-sku item mapping is created between Amazon inventory SKU and QuickBooks Inventory (non-Inventory) Item Name.
If your Amazon inventory SKUs don't have corresponding inventory items in QuickBooks, you must create them.
Contact Entriwise support for instructions on creating inventory item in QuickBooks in bulk.
Amazon charges (item type amazon-charge) are services for which Amazon charges buyers on behalf of Amazon sellers. Examples of amazon-charge items include
amazon-charge item mapping is created between Amazon Charges and QuickBooks Other Charge items (in QuickBooks Desktop) / Service Items (in QuickBooks Online), associated with income accounts.
Amazon fees (item type amazon-fee) are fees that Amazon charges Amazon sellers. Examples of amazon-fee items include
amazon-fee item mapping is created between Amazon Fees and QuickBooks Service Items, associated with expense accounts.
Amazon promotions (item type amazon-promotion) are promotions that Amazon gives to the buyers. Examples of amazon-promotion items include
ShippingPromotions. Amazon uses
ShippingPromotionsitems for promotional shipping to give the buyers discounted or free shipping. To account for such situations, both full shipping charges and promotional credits must be shown as positive and negative amounts on the Sales Receipt documents created by Entriwise.
amazon-promotion item mapping is created between Amazon promotions and QuickBooks Service Items, associated with income accounts.
amazon-other item mapping is created between Amazon Other and QuickBooks Service Items, associated with income and expense accounts.
For example, to map Amazon SKU iphone-5-wt-32gb to QuickBooks Inventory Item named Apple iPhone 5 32GB white you will need to have the following line in the CSV file:
iphone-5-wt-32gb,Apple iPhone 5 32GB white
Applies to QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise
If you use subitems (parent and child items) in QuickBooks Desktop, QuickBooks Item Name in mapping table for a subitem must be specified as
<parent-item-name>:<child-item-name>, using parent item and colon symbol.
For example if in QuickBooks Desktop you have a parent item called iphone-5 and a number of subitems / child items called iphone-5-wt-16gb, iphone-5-bk-32gb, iphone-5-bk-64gb, QuickBooks Item Name of these subitems / child items in Entriwise mapping must be specified as
