Learn about SKU Aliases
When you install a new Amazon or Amazon FBA channel in QuickBooks, you might already have your products and created their SKUs. So, your SKUs in QuickBooks might not match with your SKUs in Amazon or Amazon FBA, especially if Amazon created unique SKUs.
If you sell a product with different SKUs in multiple sales channels, you can add an SKU Alias to it. It links the product with different SKUs to the same product in QuickBooks so you can have accurate stock levels and sales.
Set up an SKU Alias
Here’s how to set up an SKU Alias depending if you already installed Amazon or not.
- For Amazon, the only way to change an SKU is to delete the item from the catalog and re-submit it with a new SKU.
- For Amazon FBA, SKU Alias and ASIN should match each Amazon channel (MFN and FBA). You should not use the ASIN as the SKU Alias. The SKU Alias you entered on QuickBooks Commerce should be the SKU of the product in Amazon for either MFN or FBA.
