Access Sales Reports from Developer Console

- On the Developer Console dashboard page, click the Reporting tab.
- In the left menu, click Financials>Units.
Sales Reports Page
For the year that you have selected, you can view the reports by Months (the default) or by Marketplace.
When you expand a section, the table contains entries for each marketplace (in the Month view) or each month (in the Marketplace view). The fields in the table correspond to the fields in the CSV file (see table below).
The unit sales reports provide the total units sold. The data can be filtered by year, month, app and marketplace. The IAP and subscription units associated with a specific app are also shown. The report includes units sold and units returned.
Sales data is updated every 24 hours. The timestamp at the top of the page indicates when the data was last updated.
Sales are finalized only at the end of the month after earnings reports are generated, so the sales figures are subject to change within a given month.
Active subscribers and Active subscriptions provides a snapshot of most recent information and do not change with duration. The started, ended and refunded subscriptions are based on the selected time period.
Downloadable Sales Reports
Starting with the January 2018 report, sales reports contain transactional data, but 2017 and earlier reports contain summary sales data. The CSV table has the same format for both old and new reports. However, the information in the table will vary based on whether the report covers 2018 and later years, or 2017 and earlier years.
In the CSV files for a transactional sales report (2018 and later), you can derive ASIN level earnings by summing up the earnings column.
In the CSV files for 2017 and earlier years, aggregate sales by App/IAP is provided. You can derive ASIN level earnings by summing up the sales price and applying appropriate royalty adjustments for prior years.
The transactional sales reports are grouped based on the month that the invoice was opened. However, there are exceptions, where the transaction is applied to an earlier or a later month. The following examples illustrate possible scenarios:
Early transactions in the month
The Amazon payment system generally does not close invoices exactly on the last day of the month. Invoices may remain open for the first few days of the next month. Transactions that occur early in the next month are mapped to that open invoice until it is closed.
For example, if the invoice for February closes on March 3, the transactions from March 1-3 are included in the February invoice.
Late adjustment for a closed transaction
The Amazon payment system will not adjust a transaction in a closed invoice. The system records the adjustments in the currently open invoice for that vendor.
For example, in February 2018, a refund is reported for a transaction that occurred in October 2017. Since the invoice for September 2017 is already closed, the transaction is mapped to the currently open invoice, which is February 2018.
