About SKUGen

Over 50 options to choose from!

The app allows you to create SKUs by choosing a combination of codes created automatically, based on your product’s data or on the data you enter in the app.

Generate SKUs:

  • for all products in a collection
  • for a set of products selected in the admin Products page or
  • for all products in your store, in a single run
  • save in SKU or barcode field

You can combine the following elements to create SKUs:

  • Prefix
  • PTA (Product title abbreviation)
  • POA (Product options abbreviation)
  • PTA (Product type abbreviation)
  • PVA (Product vendor abbreviation)
  • Auto number - It ensures that the created SKU code is unique for each run of the generator, unless you manually reset it. After each generation run it is incremented with the number of SKUs generated, so that the codes do not overlap. It also works with zero padded numbers like 001.
  • Suffix

Code types

These code types are used for product options, product type and product vendor abbreviation. * First character - Creates a 1 character code using the first character of the given name. * First 2 - Creates a two-character code using the first two characters of the name. * First 3 - Creates a three-character code using the first three characters of the name. * First 4 - Creates a four-character code using the first four characters of the name. * Code 2 - It creates a two-digit code for each name, starting with '01'. The code is unique for each name. You should use this if you have less than 100 unique names in that category (options, type or vendors). * Code 3 - It creates a three-digit code for each name, starting with '001'. The code is unique for each name and works in the same way as 'Code 2'. * Letter combinations from product title * Use Tags and Metafields as SKU components * Custom codes for product options, types and vendors * UPC or EAN barcodes with automatically calculated check digit, ready to be printed as a barcode image that can be scanned

Automatic SKU Generation

The app can automatically generate SKUs when you create a new product or when you update a product. If this feature is activated, when a new product is created, the app will generate the SKU using the last used template.

Product label printing

  • Predefined label templates which can be copied and customized
  • Customize up to three templates using liquid templating
  • You can print labels for products in collections or for up to 50 selected products
  • Can print barcode images for item barcode or SKUs using Code-128, EAN-13 or QR code encoding
  • Can add product images in to custom labels

I paid for the advanced option so I could update one product and it overwrote my entire catalog. No mater which option I choose, all products, collection, or product, it re writes all products.

Thank you for your review and we apologise for your experience.

The app can target only one product for generation.
You can also use the "Set only missing codes" option to avoid overwriting existing SKUs.

We'd be happy to clarify how the app is working if you'll contact us on the support email.

Very handy app to get unique SKUs added for all my new products. I am on the free plan and can just click a single button to update all my new items at any time, though I believe this can be automated with a paid plan. Either way, it's super handy if you are trying to use Shopify as your source data for other stores.

Thank you so much for your review!


I was struggling to format a very specific jewelry label . SKUGen was super responsive, trouble shooting my unique issue and working with me until it was resolved. I am extremely happy that I chose this particular app and would highly recommend it to others.
