SellerZen’s versatile platform allows you to map your Amazon Seller SKUs to any QuickBooks Inventory Item Name.

Additionally, you can assign classes to each product, and you can specify whether or not to track income and fees.

Custom mapping gives sellers more flexibility with managing their accounts. This is useful in several cases:

  • You have different Amazon SKUs for different conditions (New, Used from customer returns) and want those Amazon SKUs mapped to the same QuickBooks Online inventory item
  • You sell the same inventory for both FBA and FBM, and you want both mapped to the same QuickBooks Online inventory item
  • You have multiple Amazon SKUs that you want mapped to the same QuickBooks Online inventory
  • You have a different method of naming your inventory on Amazon and QuickBooks Online

Whatever your use case, you have SellerZen map your Amazon inventory to your QuickBooks Online inventory.

Even if you have a class assigned on the inventory item in QuickBooks Online, you’ll still need to assign the class on SellerZen.

Simply click on the Add New button to bring up the mapping option.

Enter the Amazon SKU and enter your QuickBooks Inventory Name to link the two. Each time a transaction with that Amazon SKU occurs, we’ll use the QuickBooks Inventory item you mapped on the QuickBooks document.

Once you click on Assign, you’ll see all mapped items below.

Mapping Amazon SKU to QuickBooks Online with Class Tracking

If you want to enable class tracking, then you’ll have make sure Classes exist in QuickBooks Online.

Once you’ve enabled class tracking and added any necessary classes, you can then add class tracking to your custom SKU mapping.

If your Amazon SKU and QuickBooks Inventory Name are the same, then you’ll just need to add your Amazon SKU and select the class and whether or not to track fees and income. Leave the QuickBooks Name field blank if the Amazon SKU and QuickBooks Name are the same.

If they are different, then enter the Amazon SKU, the QuickBooks Item Name you want mapped, and select the class and whether or not to track fees and income.

Once you’re done, you’ll see a list of all mappings below. Make any necessary changes.

How does a Profit and Loss Report Look with Class Tracking

There are many cases for which sellers may want to enable class tracking. Some of the more popular cases are:

  • Tracking income and expenses for categories of items
  • Tracking consignment sales per client
  • Getting more detailed reporting

Here’s a sample Profit and Loss report in QuickBooks Online with class tracking enabled.

For this case, items were assigned classes like Hats, Jackets, and Pants so that reporting would show income and expenses for each category. This is helpful for sellers who sell a broad range of products across multiple categories.

Income and fees are separated (if the option is checked) to show profit per class.

Similarly, sellers may want to use categories for consignment sales. So instead of “Hats,” sellers can have “Client A.” By doing this, all income and fees will be separated by clients. This helps with fee calculations for consignments. 

Upload a CSV file for SellerZen to process and create a mapping

If you have a lot of items, you can always create a spreadsheet using any free spreadsheet like Google Sheets to create a file to upload to SellerZen. We’ll process the file and send you an email when it’s complete, along with any errors we find.

Use our import option to import a list of SKUs at once. Each file should be no more than 1,000,000 bytes or 1 megabyte. 

You can map up to 10,000 items. If you have more than 10,000 items, please contact us through chat or at

The file be a plain text file (.txt) or a comma-separated values file (.csv). You should have the Amazon Seller SKU in the first column,QuickBooks Online Product Name in the second column, Class Name in the third column, and Yes or leave blank in the fourth column.

You can upload up to 2 files at a time. We’ll send you an email once we’ve processed your files. You can then review your mappings before you start the sync.

You can review the mapped settings before continuing with integration.
