Amazon Marketplace - Configure SKUs

SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Amazon Marketplace exactly match the SKUs loaded into the warehouse management system.

Add an SKU to a new product

  1. Log in into your Amazon Marketplace administration panel.
  2. In the main navigation menu, click Inventory.
  3. Click Add a product.
  4. Search for an existing product on Amazon, or create a new product.
  5. Select the Offer tab.
  6. Enter a unique Seller SKU.
  7. For the Shipping Method, select I want to ship this item myself to the customer if it sells.

  1. Complete the setup process for the new product.

Modify an SKU for an existing product

Amazon Marketplace does not allow Seller SKUs to be modified once a product is listed. To change a product's SKU in Amazon, you must create a new listing with the same ASIN and a new SKU, then delete the old listing.

  1. Log in into your Amazon Marketplace administration panel.
  2. In the main navigation menu, click Inventory.
  3. Click Add a product.
  4. Select the Offer tab.
  5. Enter a unique Seller SKU.
  6. For the Shipping Method, select I want to ship this item myself to the customer if it sells.
  7. Click Save and finish. You should now have two (2) listings with the same ASIN number and different SKU values. Note: You may need to wait up to 15 minutes for the new listing to become visible.
  8. For the Inventory item with the old SKU, click Actions > Delete product and listing. The new product with the correct SKU will become active. Note: You may need to wait up to 15 minutes for the new listing to become visible.
