Configure SKUs

Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) are merchant-defined codes that uniquely identify products in a warehouse. It is critical that the SKUs defined in Rakuten are identical to the SKUs loaded into your fulfillment provider's warehouse management system.

Gather shipping methods

As part of the third-party fulfillment setup, a mapping must be created from each unique shipping method option to the corresponding code used by your fulfillment provider.
