What is a SKU?

SKU, or Stock Keeping Units, are assigned to products available for purchase by a retailer. They are typically between 8 and 12 numbers or characters that give retailers information about the product, such as the category.

 

SKUs are not just limited to products sold in storefronts. Warehouses, e-commerce sites, and online marketplaces, like Amazon, assign SKUs to standardize tracking products.

What is a Barcode

Barcodes consist of different widths and numbers of black lines, known as bars, to help identify products. Simplify receiving inventory, completing stock counts, creating a purchase order, and checking out a customer with a barcode scanner setup. Barcode scanners quickly and accurately look up products for accurate sales and tracking your inventory.

SKU vs UPC

SKUs are assigned to products by retailers in order to record stock internally. However, UPCs (Universal Product Codes) are standardized through the GS1 and are the most common way businesses identify products. A product’s UPC will remain consistent, no matter where the product is sold, meaning the product can be tracked throughout the entire supply chain. 

How to Obtain UPCs

If your business would like to use UPCs, you must either pay a membership fee to the GS1 before purchasing UPC barcodes or license them from a third-party.

Thrive Inventory 

Thrive’s inventory management system allows businesses to generate barcodes and SKUs, automating stock counts, Purchase Orders, and receiving inventory with a barcode scanner. Thrive Inventory supports UPCs in addition to SKUs, organizing all your product information in one place.
