App details

SKUGen

SKUGen

Over 80 options to choose from!

The app allows you to create SKUs and barcodes 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.
  • Letter combinations for product title.
  • 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'.
  • Use Tags and Metafields as SKU components
  • Custom codes for product options, types and vendors
  • Create 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

Product labels (shelf labels) can be customized and printed on virtually any printer.

  • 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 into custom labels

    Just needed to say - Customer service was top notch. Highly recommended. Made the whole process very easy.

    They help once I reached for custom support. It isn't hard to do the app, however I lack time to spend trying to fix things I know they will help with, so as soon as I asked, they actually did the work themselves for me. Thanks for caring about your customers!

    Great App, better Support! I had a request for a feature and the request was granted within 24 hours.
