An alias can be set on a product so it is searchable in many different ways.
For example, if a product with a SKU of 811214 has a UPC of 813986006726, but you also want to search by the old UPC that the manufacturer used, the old UPC can be added as an alias. Multiple aliases can be set for one product.
For products that have aliases, you can search for them on the Manage Inventory
page by entering the alias into the UPC
- Add an alias to a product by clicking Aliases from its toolbox
- Add aliases in bulk to multiple products through Inventory > Import Product Info > Import Product Alias
- If Bin Management is enabled, you cannot add an alias to ShadowProducts. You must add them to the parent.
