Where can I find a simple montly fees report? Also, is there a way to see an actual net income report?
In my Financial Summary report I see a "Net sales" number, but that number is highly misleading as it is not, in fact, net. That number includes fees to payment services (including Shopifys own payment service) as well as not reflecting shipping expenses I've incurred during the month, which is something else Shopify should have a report for since I print and pay 100% of my shipping through shopify.
Is there an actual net income number somewhere that I'm missing? Is there an easy way to see how much I paid Shopify, PayPal and Amazon Payments in fees on a monthly basis?
I stand corrected. The Taxes report is still useless because in order to file quarterly reports you need to have the net sales associated to the sales taxes you charged. So even though you can pull a tax summary report, you still need to go into each transaction and pull that data, one by one. I am about to loose my mind on these goddam sales taxes. Square has this report and it takes literally 10 seconds to pull all the info you need.
Yep. going through the same hassle as everyone else. You have to use MULTIPLE REPORTS.. some "reports" don't even have the data in actual report, so you have to drill down on the line item and COPY AND PASTE from the website into a spreadsheet (for instance line item shipping fees). Lol it's a joke. But see, all these companies do it... Ebay, Etsy.. They all embed and burry the transactional data so far into things, it makes it a complete beat down to merge all the information together.... AND ITS ALL DONE MANUALLY. They don't want the average person being able to back into fees and costs....
And the biggest beating of it all, when they break a single transaction into 2 line items for NO REASON... so you then have to spend the extra manual effort to combine the two line items for Net Sales, Shipping and Taxes.
Despite what you were told by the Shopify expert, the export of shipping fees is not accurate to the extent that voided mailing labels are not correctly reported.
I downloaded a full year of shipping charges which did not agree with the actual charges on my credit card. As I drilled down I found that every voided label in Shopify showed up on their export as a positive amount. So instead of reducing the amount of the shipping, they actually added it in. There is no clue on the export that tells you what labels were voided and refunded.
Shopify seriously needs an accountant on board to help them with their reporting.
So does Quickbooks. I run all my wholesale transactions through QB since Shopify is such a pain and these guys pay by check anyway. Seconds to get the QB report, hours to put together the Shopify tax report in such a way I can actually report sales taxes to the state.
Does anyone from Shopify read these complaints, or care?
I know the programming wouldn't be that hard.
