GETIDA Checks 18 Months of Sales
Every month year-round is important to Amazon FBA sellers, particularly if you are looking for errors in handling your inventory and customer orders that qualify for FBA reimbursement. The trouble is, every month is busy enough as it is without you needing to spend time looking for Amazon’s mistakes.
GETIDA makes obtaining your FBA reimbursement simple, easy and cost-effective. GETIDA software reviews the previous 18 months of transactions to flag instances that qualify for FBA reimbursement. With your approval, the appropriate claims are then filed.
Best of all, this doesn’t cost you anything. That’s right, no charge. The only charge is a percentage of approved claims. And the first $400 in FBA reimbursement is free.
If you’re looking for Amazon holiday gifts for yourself, put GETIDA at the top of your list.
