Many sellers have heard of SKU, but they still don't know much about what SKU is and what content it contains. Let's follow Xingqihang today to find out.
The full English name of SKU is the smallest in and out inventory unit: stock keeping uint. To accurately manage the movement of goods in and out of the warehouse, different sizes, colors and styles of SKU codes are used to mark them.This not only improves the efficiency of inbound and outbound warehouses, but also greatly reduces the probability of delivery errors
In layman's terms, SKU is like everyone's ID number, which is used to identify your uniqueness . Each item has its own unique SKU , but many products have different specifications, different colors, etc. What about these SKUs ? Minute?
SKU generally takes the parts, boxes, sleeves, pallets, etc. of the goods as the delivery unit. The specific distinction can be in the following forms:
1. Each product has at least one SKU, which is used by the warehouse system or platform to identify the product.
2. If a product has multiple colors, then this product will have multiple color SKUs, one color and one SKU. For example , a quilt comes in three colors: gray , black and pink , and comes in three different sizes, so this quilt has 9 SKUs according to different colors and sizes. When a buyer places an order , they will specify a color . In order to send the correct color when shipping from the warehouse , the size of each color has its own independent SKU.

This is the only sign that Amazon sellers manage products. ASIN Amazon Mall is only The buyer's product ID. In the Amazon inventory management list, ASIN can correspond to multiple SKUs.
Coding rules for Amazon SKUs:
1. The seller fills in his own product number sku according to his own product management rules, which is convenient for later product management.
2. Do n't worry if you don't know how to fill in the SKU code , because after you successfully put on the shelves, the Amazon background will automatically generate it, but if there are too many product SKUs, it will be more troublesome to manage, so sellers can learn to do it themselves after familiarizing themselves with the background operations. write . Pay attention to the uniqueness of the SKU code when writing SKUs , that is, each product is marked with a unique SKU code, which cannot be reused, otherwise it will cause inventory confusion, in writing the letters and codes of SKU products ISBN or UPC This is often Amazon sellers The encoding method used.
