How Bookkeep's Amazon Seller Deposit Journal Entry aligns with Amazon Seller Reporting
Understanding how Bookkeep posts Amazon Seller deposits is critical to align with the reporting from Amazon Seller. Below we show the side-by-side alignment between the Amazon Seller reporting and our journal entry for Amazon Seller deposits.

When you hover on "Reports", you will see "Payments" as the first option. Click on "Payments." This will take you to the Payments Dashboard as shown below:
