1. 1 What is the iSKU and what for? #

iSKU means the interior SKU that is created for convenient tracking, monitoring and managing the sales and data of the same product selling over multiple marketplaces or multiple seller accounts. For instance, there are different SKUs for the same product (Pink Kettle) selling in multiple marketplaces. Using an iSKU to label the Pink Kettle will help you easily manage its inventory and sales performance.

1.2 What is the iSPU and what for? #

iSPU means the internal code for the same product ( includes its all colors products) selling over multiple marketplaces or multiple seller accounts. For instance, iSPU refers to Kettle this product, and iSKUs refer to the Kettle in different colors.
