Based on your store connections, a Destination store can import products from a Source store to sell the same over their online store. Also, if a Source wants to sell their product(s) on a partner store or chain store, they can do so with the “Product Import” feature without any hassle.
Once the Source and Destination stores are connected, product import takes place in the following sequence:
SKUs and their importance
SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) are the products/variant codes. Stores use these codes to label products, keep track of their inventory and manage orders. It is best practice to use unique SKUs for every product variant. No two products can have the same SKU.
- SKUs are specific to your store and can be customized based on your business needs.
- SKUs are alphanumeric digits (typically eight) and can be assigned to various Product Properties, i.e., color, type, style, size, price, etc.
With SKUs, it is easier for retailers to manage inventory, helping them decide when new orders must be placed so inventory ‘out-of-stock scenarios can be put at arm’s length.
They also come in handy while addressing customer queries regarding products and order tracking.
You can create SKU while creating a product in the Shopify ‘Products’ tab.
