In the field of inventory management, a stock-keeping unit or SKU refers to a specific item stored to a specific location. The SKU is intended as the most disaggregated level when dealing with inventory.

SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) is a unique code given to each of your items. Specify and fill in each field individually. We recommend using numbers of the format "10001", "10002"... etc. but the main thing is that no numbers are repeated. One last condition is that the SKU should not exceed 40 characters.

      is it possible to sell an article by using the sku number?

      I would like to hide the item once the item is out of stock to avoid selling of the item to the customer which is unavailable. Or would there be any other available set up to avoid such situation?
      Thanks! :)

      Having SKU numbers on items is fantastic!

      All my items are unique, that means for me that I can use the unique barcode as well to fill the SKU. Is that possible? Why would I prefer this procedure? For nearly automatical handling I do not want to download the whole itemlist, only to change some single items or add some single items. As far as I understand the process it seems to be easier to export only the modified items from my ERP (mostly price, sometimes weight) to a CSV/spreadsheet for the upload. I suppose the rest of the items remains in the item-list. Is this right?

      Is there any possibility to add SKU in purchase order so that the supplier will know specific products that we are looking for?
