Thank goodness 🙂 – a feature that automatically generates SKUs for you! Simply enable WooCommerce SKU module, and every new product added to your store will be allocated a unique SKU number.
Have existing products that don’t have SKUs? This module can do that for you too! Once enabled, go to WooCommerce > Booster > Products > SKU and scroll down to the Autogenerate SKUs tool, or go to WooCommerce > Booster Tools > Autogenerate SKUs to automatically generate SKUs for all existing products in your store. It’s that easy!
SKU Format Options
This section allows you set SKU format. Number generation can be sequential or from product ID. If you choose to use sequential number inside SKU, you can set sequential number counter. Also you can set prefix, suffix and number width here. Additionally you can choose how to generate SKU for variable products. There are three options for variable products:
- SKU same as parent’s product.
- Generate different SKU for each variation.
- SKU same as parent’s product + variation letter suffix.
You can set different SKU prefix and suffix for each your product category.
If you wish to set SKUs manually, and you need to have same SKUs for different products, you can enable allow duplicate SKUs option here (which is disabled in WooCommerce by default).
Autogenerate SKUs Tool
Module will generate SKUs for new added products automatically, but if you need to set SKUs for your existing products, or if you changed SKU format and would like to recalculate SKUs, you need to use Autogenerate SKUs tool. It will take format settings you set in previous sections, so you only need to click preview and set SKUs.
