Tips for Setting Up Your SKUs

  • For similar products with slightly different attributes, it's best to create a single Product listing and assign each attribute its own SKU. For example: you sell blankets of different colors. Create for each blanket color a different SKU: "cream blanket with blue stripe", cream blanket with red stripe", etc.
  • For some meats and other "one unit" items that are usually sold by weight: our software does not have the capacity to calculate price per pound, so each item must be given a total product weight and price, as in "5 lb. roast, $50".
  • In the case of different cuts of meat, we need each cut to be listed as its own product. Different quantities of the same cut can be done with two SKUs for one product listing. (e.g. 2 lb. chuck round, $16; 4 lb. chuck round, $32)
  • Many buyers will place a larger order when they see a SKU for a larger amount. We recommend adding "bulk" SKUs into your product listings. For example: in addition to a "12 oz jar", you can have a SKU for a "Box of 12", with a small discount.
  • If you forget to configure the SKUs, when you look at the "public listing" for the product you will see that it says, "Sorry, but no items for this product are for sale right now." That's your reminder to go back and add the SKU information.
