How I Make My Amazon SKUs:
(Stock Keeping Unit)
When I first logged into my Amazon Seller Central to add my first item, I got stuck at the first page. One of the first questions it asked me was to put my Seller SKU in.
So back to the drawing board I went to find out what a SKU was, and did it matter if I let Amazon just fill it in for me.
You don’t really HAVE to, but I found someone who was using this method which seemed like a great idea.
First, the SKU name you give it will never be seen by customers, it’s only for your purposes. It shows up on your Manage Inventory page, which is where it is most helpful.
I format my SKUs like this: ARG999BE1807AVENBED. ARG is my abbreviation for the shop I purchased it from, in this case Argos. £9.99 is the price I paid for it. BE is ‘Break Even’ followed by the break even price, which I get from BuyBotPro. In this example it’s £18.07. That’s the lowest price I would be able to sell it for and break even after fees and cost of the product.
This will make your daily price checks and adjustments SO MUCH EASIER! You won’t have to go back and forth to the product page, you can just look at the SKU and decide on the price. You can also add a code for the name/colour of the product too which can be useful.
If you want to check out Buy Bot Pro you can click on my link which will let them know you found out about BBP from me, and they will buy me a coffee! 😊.
It doesn’t cost you anymore and you can try Buy Bot Pro risk free for 14 days, if you don’t love it (as much as I do) they will give you your money back, you can’t lose.
