What is an SKU
SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit, and it is mostly used for inventory purposes. Companies use it to give a unique code to a product, so they could identify it easily. It is similar to a barcode. Some companies use the barcode as the SKU, but some have a separate set of codes.
When adding a product on your Saladplate supplier profile, an SKU is one of the required data fields. It is just for your identification purpose and Saladplate does not manage your inventory. You can pick a string of numbers and characters to fulfill our data requirement if you don't have an SKU.
We suggest you to put your company name's short form as the prefix and add a series of numbers after. For example, if your company name is Salad, then a range of SKUs could be:
SKUs cannot be the same for any 2 products on the platform, including other suppliers, so avoid generic numbers, such as 1, 123, 111, etc.
Please refrain from using special characters, including spaces
