When your products listings have unique and consistent SKUs and barcodes across stores or sales channels, SKULabs can quickly and automatically link them to the correct items.
In cases where product SKUs/barcodes are not or cannot be made unique or consistent, your listings can be linked to the correct item or kit that represents them manually.
How to link listings
1. From the Listings tab on the Inventory page, adjust the table's Filters so that it will show the listings that you want to link from each store.
2. Using the SKU or name, locate the listings you wish to link with the table's search bar.
3. Click on the listing's/variant's name under the "Name" column to open that listing's detail's page.
4. From the details page, scroll to the Link listing to item/Link listing to kit panels. If a listing is already linked and you want to relink it to a new or another existing item or kit, you must first click on Unlink.
5. Next, select from the available actions
Create new item: If the listing represents an item that has not been added to your SKULabs catalog yet, you'll want to create an item to link it to. The item will need a unique name, SKU, and barcode, and you can add an optional location as well.
Link to existing item: If the listing represents an item that already exists in your SKULabs catalog, you can search for that item and link it to this listing.
Create new kit: If the listing represents more than one item, and that kit has not been added to your SKULabs catalog yet, you'll want to create a kit to link it to. The kit will need a name and its contents, which can be made up of new or existing items of varying quantities.
Link to existing kit: If the listing represents a kit (bundle) of items that already exists in your SKULabs catalog, you can search for that kit and link it to this listing.

How to link multiple listings at a time
If you are looking to link several unlinked listings at once, you may find the SKULabs Catalog Setup Wizard or a CSV to be more efficient.
Via CSV file import
Once you've added the stores, you're store's listings will be imported and created into items. A CSV can be imported via the Listing Links Import on the Import/Export page.
This import will link all listings and variants found in the "listing SKU" column to the item or kit in the "SKU" column.
The following columns are required for the CSV:
Listing SKU - enter the SKU of the listing from your sales channel to be relinked
SKU - enter the SKU of the main item or kit that you want additional listings linked to. This SKU will remain in the catalog as the primary SKU for the product.
Override Link - if a listing SKU is currently linked to an incorrect item already, enter "yes" to unlink the item and allow the listing to be relinked to the main SKU. enter "no" to skip this option.
e.g. In the example below, three additional listings from other channels will be relinked to the item with a SKU of "main-listing-SKU111".
