SKUs/Barcodes:

To avoid additional costs from assembly and sorting fees, your products should arrive to the warehouse ready to ship to the customer: pre-assembled, sorted, with a unique barcode for each SKU. Each variant of your product needs its own SKU. This means if you have one style of product, a unique SKU is required per color/size of that style. If your product has an official UPC, you should use that for your SKU instead of creating one.

All products shipped to the fulfillment center needs a barcode to maintain accuracy and keep track of your inventory. Each item has at least one barcode and accompanying scancode associated with it. Different from SKUs, barcode is a machine-readable code in the form of numbers and a pattern of parallel lines of varying widths.

  • If the product has a barcode printed on it, it needs to match the barcode assigned in Shopify.

  • If you do not have barcodes or SKUs, CALA can generate either/or and update your Shopify product page.

CALA offers generic, unbranded, packaging (poly mailers - boxes) for $0.40 - $1.50. Custom Packaging is available and you may inquire with your CALA account manager.
