Flubit is different from other channels in the way that it works. There are no costs or fixed fees paid by merchants selling on Flubit. You decide the lowest price that you are prepared to accept for your products. This is defined as the Flubit Base Price (FBP) for each product and this is what you supply to Flubit. Flubit sets the price the customer pays and once the order is received, you receive your FBP via BACS.
Initially, the FBP is taken from the prices saved in Linnworks for your chosen Amazon channel. Linnworks takes the Amazon-specific prices in the Listing Descriptions tab for your products and applies the discount set in your Flubit integration. This calculates your FBP which is saved for each Linnworks Inventory item in the Listing Descriptions tab using the Source and Subsource from your Flubit integration.
Once the FBP has been set in the Listing Descriptions tab this needs to be used for changes in your price to Flubit. Either change the price manually in this tab or use Data Import to upload new prices as part of an Inventory Import to Linnworks for your Flubit channel. Once you have the updated prices use the following Listing guide to submit these prices to Flubit.
