Test in a new blank spreadsheet

    • =GORILLA_SKULIST(“store nickname”)
    • =GORILLA_ASINLIST(“store nickname”)
    • =GORILLA_SALESCOUNT(“store nickname”, “this year”)
    • =GORILLA_SALESTOTAL(“store nickname”, “last month”)
    • =GORILLA_FEETYPE(“store nickname”)
    • =GORILLA_CHARGETYPE(“store nickname”)
  7. For detailed examples, videos and more functions, go to the full list of formulas. More examples & videos.

1. The ID doesn’t save in Google Sheets

Please try again in incognito mode. Google is caching your drive. This can happen if you have Google Drive installed on your local computer, or have Chrome extensions to use drive in offline mode.

2. How do I let a team member access the data

Have each person install the same addon version you are using. Share the User ID or Agency ID with them. Each person must unlock the addon using the same ID.

3. My data isn’t showing up

Data can take a while to download depending on the history and size of the account.

Go to Gorilla Account > Download Status.

You’ll see two % numbers and the dates. Make sure both are at 100% otherwise the import process is still in progress. Transactions take longer as we have to go through each one by one.

We provide the most in-depth set of data than any other Amazon service provider. Because of this, the import process takes more time to gather fully.

4. The data doesn’t match my seller central data

Check the download status. If the data hasn’t fully downloaded, it will be different.

Our data matches up with seller central extremely closely. If you see a discrepancy, contact us. It is usually how we roll up some numbers together as there are over 150 different fees and charges.

5. I get an error about too many requests from Google

Google gives a daily quota for how often you can pull data into spreadsheets. This is so you don’t overload their servers.

Use ranges and array formulas.

If you do single references in the formula such as A1, A2, A3… A1000, you are asking Google to request data 1000 times.

e.g.
=gorilla_inventory(A1)
=gorilla_inventory(A2)
=gorilla_inventory(A3)

=gorilla_inventory(A1000)

If you use formulas like this in your spreadsheet and try to refresh your data, Google will think you are a bot as the spreadsheet is requesting hundreds of requests too quickly in a short period.

If you do A1:A1000, you get the same data, but it is only requesting 1 time.

=gorilla_inventory(A1:A1000)

To get around this, please transfer ownership of the spreadsheet to a different Google user account to use a fresh Google quota limit.
