Magento - Configuring SKUs

Stock keeping units (SKU) are merchant defined codes used to uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Magento match exactly to the SKUs loaded into your warehouse management system.

Options include:
  • Adding a SKU
  • Modifying a SKU

  1. Login to your Magento administration panel.

  2. Click Catalog Manage Products. Then click the Add Product​ button.

  3. On the New Product screen, define your SKU.
