How does the auto-fill by Buy Cost feature work?

AZInsight can help you save time by automatically calculating a target Buy Cost for you based on what you want to achieve, this is known as the auto-fill feature.

AZInsight has three options to automatically calculate a Buy Cost for you, these options are:
  1. Based on the desired ROI
  2. Based on the desired Profit
  3. Based on the desired Margin
Based on the desired ROI

Using the option to automatically calculate a Buy Cost based on the ROI will help you save time, instead of you manually calculating a target ROI for your Buy Cost, AZInsight can do the maths for you. For example, if you set the option to 25% ROI, AZInsight will adjust the calculation to fill in the target Buy Cost to achieve 25% ROI on the ASIN. AZInsight will take into account the Sell Price, Fees, and more to calculate the Buy Cost. You can see in the image below how it looks.

 
Based on the desired Profit

This option works like the ROI one but instead of using the ROI, you can set a target Profit. If your target profit is $2.50 on a certain ASIN, you can set up this target to achieve your goal. AZInsight will adjust the calculation based on your Profit target. You can see in the image below how it looks.



Based on the desired Margin

Like the two previous options, you can set a target Margin for AZInsight to automatically calculate a Buy Cost for you. In the image below you can see how it looks when we set a Margin target of 10%.

You can only have one(1) auto-fill option enabled on AZInsight.
