Why Use an Ecommerce Specialist?
Ecommerce is a specialized business niche that comes with a different set of challenges than a brick-and-mortar business. Our team understands the nuances of the ecommerce market, from collecting sales tax and understanding supply chain management to reconciling multiple sales channels and calculating monthly Cost of Goods Sold.
The most important consideration when thinking about bringing on an ecommerce accountant is the cost. As your business grows and becomes your full-time job, your obligations increase, and so does your need for accurate books. This is a critical time to invest in accounting services with Seller Accountant.
We charge a monthly flat rate that includes ongoing bookkeeping, as well as any discounted software billed through Seller Accountant and any CFO service add-ons. We believe charging by the hour only rewards inefficient work, so we determine monthly pricing based on accounting complexity, number of sales channels, client responsiveness, and average monthly transactions.
Seller Accountant has helped over 200 ecommerce businesses maintain accurate accounting records.
We offer cash flow forecasting as part of our CFO service, but our ecommerce accounting experts will help you understand your true profit and loss in order for you to make more informed decisions about your business’s cash flow.

Cost of Goods Sold, or COGS, can be one of the most difficult concepts for online sellers to wrap their heads around. Even if a seller understands the basic concept, it can be difficult to plug COGS into accounting software or report COGS in a way that gives you a clear look into your business’s financials.
