Many sellers like to use some of their sourcing data to create a special MSKU. InventoryLab has made that capability much more automated!

To do this, on the List & Prep page, click on the Edit button in the Auto-Generate MSKUs section

Choose the Use a Variable MSKU radio button

Choosing the Variables to Include

Under MSKU Options, you will see that you can choose from:

  • Buy Cost
  • Supplier
  • ASIN
  • Purchase Date
  • List Price
  • Condition
  • Sales Rank
  • a Custom field (limited to 25 characters)

to include in your custom MSKU. You are able to choose up to 4 of these by dragging and dropping them into the Variable MSKU Prefix box

In the example below, we have selected to include the Buy Cost, Supplier, and List Price fields for our Custom MSKU

Changing Your Delimiter/Separator

You are also able to change how your fields are separated!

Click on the separator to reveal a dropdown box of other options

You can choose from:

  • NONE (this will show as a blank space on the dropdown)
  • _
  • -
  • .
  • \
  • |

These can be different between each field. In our example below where we have chosen to use _, /, then .

Once finished, click the green Save Changes button

You will see what you have chosen now showing in the Variable MSKU area. This can be edited going forward at anytime.

Final Result

When you go to list your product, your MSKU will be automatically created for you using your formula

Here is the end result using our example data from above for an item with a $1.00 Buy Cost, Walmart as the Supplier, and a List Price of $16.48
