How many SKU can the Simple SKU Generator plugin create?

The total numbers of SKU that Simple SKU Generator plugin can create is varies between 6 to 13 digits/letters.

What are the 4 options to used to created the SKU?

(1) Month: 2 dights/Number(1): 1 dight/Number(3): 3 dight/Letter: 1 dight or Blank. (2) Year: 4 dight. (3) Date: 2 dight. (4) The amount of products you have: 4 dights.

The digits can be used to create barcode digits for EAN-8, UPC-A, EAN-13, CODE-39, CODE-93, EAN-128, CODE-128, ITF, QR, DMTX

What is a Blank?

The Blank purpose is to shorten the digits for EAN-8 ( UPC-C) or for your own preference. There are Blank for Month/Number(1)/Number(3)/Letter, Year, Date. Letter, Year, Date.

I wouldn’t advise shorten less than 8 digits.

It’s hard to read and follow which sku is assign to which product once scan the barcode.

The sku display page has 2 buttons what are their function?

The Remove button will ONLY remove/delete all the SKU from the SKU table not from the WordPress database. It won’t delete the products on your websites. It’s best to remove the SKU list after you export the CSV that contain the SKU.

The Export CSV button will export the CSV. There will be no header on the CSV file.

How do I upload the CSV file that contain the SKU for the products and keep the old SKU?

Before you upload the CSV file, you have to backup database or export your current products because if you are not sure if you are uploading the CSV file correctly or make a mistake. You can always import the current products CSV file and redo this again correctly.

You can used WooCommerce products (CSV) importer, which is offer by WooCommerce plugin to upload the CSV file.

Everytime you open a CVS file it will ask you to save the file twice, just save it twice.


*** Before you upload the the new CSV file, you have to backup database or export your current products ***
