You can use the Other Transactions section to enter additional expenses or income associated with your company or individual products.
There are two main sections; Manual Entries & FBA Inbound Shipping
You can manually enter costs/revenue related to things like product photography, samples, design, and any other transactions relevant to your business as a whole or to an individual ASIN. You have the option to select a category from the drop-down menu or create custom categories of your own.
