What is a SKU?

SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit.

This is an optional number you can add to your product when setting it up.

SKUs can be numerical, alphabetical or a mixture of both. It must be unique for each different product.

You can use the SKU in two ways:

  1. It can be used as a Product Code which helps you to identify the price, product options and manufacturer of the merchandise.
  2. It can be used as a location identifier so you know which shelf or drawer in your warehouse/storage area the item is stored in.

This number will not appear on live products on your website, but it will appear on your 'picking list' when an order comes into your Order Managment.

To see and print a picking list, please follow these steps:

  1.  Log in to your Create account

  2. Click Shop" from the Top Menu.

  3. Click "Order Management" from the left-hand menu.

  4. Change the status of any order you wish to see on the picking list to "Processing - Picking".

  5. Click "Print Picking List" from the left hand menu of the Order Managment screen.

Your can read more about using your Order Management on our guide here.

If you have any questions about using SKUs or your Order Management, please do not hesitate to contact your Account Manager who will be happy to help.
