Audience: Suppliers

You may create new SKUs right in the platform or upload multiple SKUs at a time via inventory spreadsheets, flat-file formats, or API. For suppliers creating just a few SKUs, manually creating the SKUs in the web portal is the fastest. 

Want to see a walkthrough of how to add a new SKU? Click through the steps directly in the platform using the Guide Me tool: Add Inventory

Step 1: Click the navigation menu and select Workflows > Inventory.  The Inventory page is displayed with a list of all your SKUs.

Step 2:  Click Create SKU at the top of the page.

Step 3: In the Add SKU page, enter the SKU information in the appropriate fields. When finished, click Save Changes.

Many retailers require more information in order for them to process your inventory, so other fields have been set as Recommended. CommerceHub recommends filling out all of the "recommended" fields to ensure that there are no issues when your retailer partners receive your inventory.

Step 4: The new SKU is displayed in the Inventory page and is now available to your trading partners.
