WooCommerce SKU

Generate WooCommerce SKUs automatically


Thank goodness 🙂 – a feature that automatically generates SKUs for you! Simply enable WooCommerce SKU module, and every new product added to your store will be allocated a unique SKU number.

Have existing products that don’t have SKUs? This module can do that for you too! Once enabled, go to WooCommerce > Booster > Products > SKU and scroll down to the Autogenerate SKUs tool, or go to WooCommerce > Booster Tools > Autogenerate SKUs to automatically generate SKUs for all existing products in your store. It’s that easy!

SKU Format Options

This section allows you set SKU format.

Variable Products Variations
SKU generation for variations. Please note, that on new variable product creation, variations will get same SKUs as parent product, and if you want variations to have different SKUs, you will need to run “Autogenerate SKUs” tool manually.

Default: SKU same as parent's product

Categories Options

You can set different SKU prefix, suffix and counter (in case if “Sequential Number Generation – By Category” option is enabled) for each your product category.

Autogenerate SKUs Tool

Module will generate SKUs for new added products automatically, but if you need to set SKUs for your existing products, or if you changed SKU format and would like to recalculate SKUs, you need to use Autogenerate SKUs tool. It will take format settings you set in previous sections, so you only need to click preview and set SKUs.
