Thrive Inventory by Shopventory offers the ability to generate a unique SKU number for your inventory. 

Simply click on the 'Generate SKU' option in the Product panel when creating or editing a product. We'll make sure the number doesn't conflict with any others in your account.

If you'd like to use the Barcode field instead, simply cut and paste the number from the SKU field into the Barcode section, or use the link to "Copy SKU":


Generate SKU numbers for ALL Products

You can also generate SKUs for all products that don't have a SKU number at once from the Advanced page. Just use the Generate SKUs for all products without SKUs task. Here's a quick video 🎥 on how to complete that process.

SKU numbers generated by Thrive are 12-digit codes. 

  • The first 6 digits of the SKU are linked to the Category field. This means that all Variants will have the same first 6 digits if they're all in the same Category. The following digits are randomized.

  • All Thrive Inventory-generated SKUs begin with a 0 or 1.

  • SKU numbers generated by Thrive can be used for Tag / Label Printing as the protocol meets the requirements for generating a visual Barcode.

SKU numbers generated in Thrive will be pushed out to the register and should be searchable/scannable at the point of sale.
