What is a SKU?

A Stock Keeping Unit, or SKU, is an individual item, product or service for sale. The SKU is a unique set of characters that relate exclusively to that particular item. Each code has variations which refer to parts of its product, this means that, unlike a barcode, they can be read and understood by a human. The greatest advantage of a SKU however is that it enables companies to take more accurate stock readings, granting them the ability to save time.
