Finally, a bookkeeping solution created just for Amazon sellers!
I’ve taken our bestselling Etsy Seller Spreadsheet and adapted it just for you Amazon shop owners! This tool does the heavy-lifting for you, so you can have the data you need to make smart decisions for your shop and more time to do what you love (Like create! And sell!).
The Amazon Seller Spreadsheet was created by a CPA to help Amazon sellers automate and simplify their monthly bookkeeping process. In a nutshell, this tool compiles your business’ revenue and expenses each month to calculate your net profit. There are separate tabs to help you categorize expenses, along with monthly tabs for importing your Amazon transactional data directly from Amazon. Here’s exactly what you can do with this spreadsheet:
- Quickly import Amazon data – Quickly and easily import your Amazon sales, sales tax collected, shipping credits and gift wrap credits, along with your Amazon seller fees, inventory fees, and shipping expenses and more
- See all your sales in one place – There’s plenty of customizable space to enter your sales from all other sources, like craft shows, other websites, and more
- Input expense receipts and purchases – Enter all your business’ expenses and purchases on a receipt-by-receipt basis, so you can know exactly how much you’re spending each month. Expenses are divided into categories that make sense for your business. This means you have a great detailed log of your expenses to give to your accountant or tax preparer at year end!
- Calculate total sales and total expenses each month, along with net profit or loss (know where your business stands financially instead of having to guess!)
- Provide important sales tax data and totals so you have the necessary info to fill out your state sales tax forms, understand what Amazon is collecting & remitting on your behalf as well
- Make tax time so much easier – Keep up with your finances, sales, and expenses through the year with this one tool and make tax time a lot more streamlined and simplified for you or your accountant.
How the spreadsheet works
My Seller Spreadsheets automate and simplify your monthly bookkeeping process. The Amazon Seller Spreadsheet imports in your Amazon sales & fees directly from your Amazon CSV files with a simple copy & paste.
The spreadsheet also helps you categorize your business expenses, enter sales from other sources, automates important sales tax info, and sums up your monthly net profit.

You want to create awesome things, not crunch numbers.
Are you an Amazon handmade shop owner without a bookkeeping system to support you? Have you tried to set up a process for dealing with your business’ finances, but you quickly get overwhelmed or confused and give up?

But keeping track of your shop’s finances can actually help your business make more money, AND it doesn’t have to be so hard! You don’t have to do it alone with this bookkeeping template.

Can you say the same about an out-of-the-box, one-size-fits-all bookkeeping software option?
Why a Paper + Spark spreadsheet?
Traditional bookkeeping software is made with accountants in mind. It’s expensive (and generally requires a monthly subscription payment), bulky, and oftentimes more complicated than a micro business like yours needs. It’s made for any and all types of small businesses, and not specific to YOUR business needs as a handmade biz owner or e-commerce seller. When your bookkeeping software is too complicated, too vague, and support or in-plain-English instruction is lacking, you tend to procrastinate on using it. Not updating your books consistently means severe stress once year end or tax deadlines hit.
Spreadsheets are powerful but simple tools. Partner a well-crafted spreadsheet file designed by an accountant intimately acquainted with e-commerce with clear, understandable instructions and you’ve got a formula for bookkeeping success. You get everything you need to feel empowered by your numbers, and nothing you don’t need.
Paper + Spark has been selling spreadsheets since 2015. We currently support thousands of makers and creative entrepreneurs in doing their books and understanding their money. Our spreadsheets have received countless rave reviews from shop owners. No other bookkeeping solution out there offers our level of step-by-step guidance & support. We also stay up-to-date on e-commerce reporting and platform changes.
With a Paper + Spark spreadsheet, you’ll pay a one-time fee for lifetime access to your files and support. We provide any future year files and updates for free, forever, via the account you create at checkout. You can always reach out in the Accounting Accountability Club, or via DM or email, and get answers to your spreadsheet & bookkeeping questions.
