SKU? It’s Just a Model/Product Number.

SKU? It’s Just a Model/Product Number.

June 26th, 2009

When you deal with genuine wholesale suppliers, you will frequently hear the term: SKU.   A SKU is the unique number a wholesaler assigns to a product type.  It may be a model number or a product number.  If a wholesaler carries 8,000 unique products, in the industry they talk of the wholesale supplier carrying 8,000 SKU’s.

A model with three colors is likely to have three SKUs to identify the product, one SKU for each color.  Note this is not a number that is unique to each product (like your Social Security Number).  It is a number that is unique to each product description.

It’s as simple as that.
