UltraCart - 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 UltraCart match exactly to the SKU' loaded into your warehouse management system. Options include:
   
  • Obtaining SKUs
  • Configuring SKUs for Inventory Tracking

Obtaining SKUs

To obtain SKUs complete the Configuring SKUs for Inventory Tracking process below, and retain the SKUs listed under Inventory Control and Distribution.
 

Configuring SKUs for Inventory Tracking

To configure SKUs:
   
  1. From within UltraCart, click Item Management > Items

  2. Click on one of the Items

  3. Click on the Shipping tab

  4. Scroll down to Inventory Control and Distribution

  5. Ensure that Track Inventory is selected. This allows DropStream to track inventory levels in UltraCart.


     

  6. Ensure that there is a checkmark next to the distribution center that you would like to handle the item. This will enable DropStream to update inventory levels for the Quantity in Stock value. Gather the SKU which is defined under Inventory Control and Distribution.
