- Predict FBA sales and profits → Access additional inventory-level metrics (like revenue, cost, profit, etc.)
- Monitor inbound inventory → Keep tabs on units on their way to an Amazon fulfillment center
- Avoid Amazon storage fees → Master FBA supply and demand so you don’t order stock too early or more than necessary.

Columns: There are 10 columns selected by default but you can customize these options and select more
