    Maybe I am blind an/or confused...
    But I remember a sku field in the product page that I used to fill, is it gone?

    Thanks, robert

    I haven't seen one since June 2017 when I joined or we would have been using it!

    @LoveAndShapes Thanks for reaching out with your question.

    We have a 9 digit unique product code in the URL of every product page you create:

    Look for it in the URL:

    Let me know if you are looking for something else.

    It's quite a while that I used this option, i have no idea when t disappeared.
    Now I am trying to have a structure between my different shops hence the need for it.

    Thanks for replying :)

    Thanks that already somewhat helpful, the problem is that I cannot change that to what makes sense to me.
    The best thing i can think of is to change my model names and include a sku in the name.

    Kind regards, robert

    @LoveAndShapes thanks for the reply.

    The product numbers we make are auto-generated by the site software when you upload the model and create a product page. There's no active method to make custom SKUs at this time, so any customization would need to be included in the model title at your discretion.

    I don't recall there ever being a user accessible sku field anywhere on the site, at least since around 2011. There is also a numeric model number automatically generated for each model but you can't change that either. The product title and/or model name are good places to add such an identifier. Another place would be in the product description.

    Here's an example product that uses a self generated sku in the product title but it was not also used in the model name.
