How to Reconcile FBA Shipments
What Does Reconcile Mean?
To reconcile an Amazon FBA shipment means to match up FBA shipments to SoStocked Purchase Orders or Work Orders, so as to accurately account for every unit. Whether you are using our PO / WO system or not, you always need to reconcile FBA shipments so that SoStocked can accurately forecast when that FBA shipment will arrive. This will help to ensure we don't double-count any inventory coming from a warehouse, and also ensure we assume the correct lead time for arrival to FBA fulfillment centers.

Assign an FBA shipment to the Purchase order.
From the Orders page, look under the column that says "Reconcile Shipment" and click on the purchase order (PO) that needs to be connected to the un-reconciled FBA shipment.
On this pop-up you will do the following:
1. Select "Supplier", as all POs come from suppliers
2. Choose the supplier from the drop-down
3. Select "yes" for Are all units going to FBA?
4. Select "yes" for Is there an order created in SoStocked?
5. Choose the FBA shipment ID from the dropdown.
6. Click the green button to confirm.
Repeat this step for as many FBA shipments that are connected to this PO.
