Outbound Only - Master of Inventory
SKULabs is a master of inventory system which uses product SKUs and titles from sales channels listings to initially create items in a process called "build". This process only imports the sales channels listing information ONCE, that is when your items are "built" from these listings.
After an item is initially built from it's listing, any further information transfer for that item is strictly outbound from SKULabs and typically limited to stock levels and pricing information. This means that when updating your SKUs or product names in bulk on your sales channels, it is recommend that you also reflect those updates to your item information in SKULabs.
Updating Item Information in SKULabs:
If you've changed information on an external sales channel listing and would also like to update the information for the SKULabs item it is linked to, you can do so with the following methods:
For single items, simply go to an item's details page within SKULabs and click the orange edit button in the top right.
