Sometimes a Product SKU was previously used as a SKU Alias, but then needs to be tracked as a separate SKU. When this happens, the SKU Alias can be removed from the original master SKU entry. Then added into the Products catalog as new Product SKU. When an SKU Alias is removed from a master SKU, the Stock status of the master SKU will be re-evaluated based on its individual stock history.
To remove a SKU Alias from a master Product SKU:
- Navigate to the INVENTORY tab, then select PRODUCT CATALOG from the drop down menu.
- From the PRODUCTS page, click on the blue product "SKU" or "Name" that the SKU Alias is assigned to.
- Click on the Edit button in the top right corner:
- From the EDIT PRODUCT DETAILS page, locate the SKU Aliases field.
- Click the X next to the SKU Alias. Then confirm that you wish to remove the SKU Alias.
The SKU Alias is now removed and can be added as a unique Product SKU. Learn more.
