Working with SKUs

The Product Manager is responsible for determining the best way to display, price, and sell products in the online store.

There are two types of SKUs: Product-level SKU and Category-level SKU.
Product-level SKU
Create your product; then create SKUs to represent each orderable item of merchandise for sale. All SKUs related to a particular product exhibit the same set of attributes and are distinguished by their defining attribute values. For example, each color and size combination of the shirt product is one SKU.
Category-level SKU
Create SKUs under a category that is not associated with any product. This type of SKU is created for products that do not have defining attributes. For example, a DVD product might not have any defining attributes.
