To increase the data integrity of the Catch Marketplace platform, we’ve introduced ‘SKU’ as a value that can be submitted upon product creation for accepted product ranges.
- Before - SKU values were previously submitted within the product-reference-type field using the type of 'MPN'
- Now - SKU values can now be submitted within the product-reference-type field using the type of 'SKU'.
Only in cases where products are self-branded or manufactured, and neither a global barcode or Manufacture Part/Product number exist, is the use of SKU allowed.
For all the products that are globally branded you must use a registered and valid barcode.
Catch does not allow uploading of branded products without UPC or EAN values.
Accurately identifying SKU values, segmenting this data from being pooled directly with the MPN data, will enable Catch to further optimize the customer experience.
