An alias is an additional SKU assigned to a product. For example, if you have separate SKUs for the same product being sold on multiple sales channels, you can add the additional SKUs to the main product using alias SKUs. Doing so allows you to search for the product using any of the associated SKUs. It also allows ShipWorks to associate the product’s weight, dimensions or customs information to a shipment using any of the aliased SKUs.
Alias SKUs can be added when creating a new product or when editing a product already in the ShipWorks product catalog.
