SKUs (Stock Keeping Unit)

SKUs are used to identify products so every different product should have a unique SKU - including each variant of a product group.

SKUs in Brightpearl are used for supporting channel integrations, such as eBay, Amazon, Magento, Shopify, Bigcommerce and ekmPowershop. In order to effectively use these integrations SKUs will need to match across each system.

SKUs can have meaning or not, for example, a range of t-shirts that come in different colors and sizes can all have the same identifying number but additional letters to identify the exact color and size like "T006678_R_S" for red small, where the first part of the number is simply a reference for the range of t-shirts.

Allowed characters:

  • 0-9
  • a-z (abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz)
  • A-Z (same as above but capitals)
  • " " Space
  • "-" Hyphen
  • "_" Underscore
  • "/" Forward slash

Maximum character length of 32.
