" section. This is how the unmapped products list will look like:

Product bundles or combos are a package of several individual products sold together to customers as one combined package and listed as a single SKU.
Combo products need to be defined in terms of their composition of individual products and their quantities with which the combo or bundle has been made. Please identify your combo / bundles on eVanik OWS. Click on the
button for listings which are bundles / combos. On clicking this, these listings will move to the combo tab as shown below:

Step 3 - Creating and Mapping Master SKUs
Master SKUs are unique identifiers of common / same products listed differently on different channels - online, own store and marketplaces. Master SKUs can be created one by one by clicking on
button or by uploading a CSV File.

button and a CSV file will get downloaded by clicking on the "Download Master SKU Sample file
" link. Fill up the list with your Master SKUs and import.
Step 4 - Mapping Master SKUs with Channel SKUs

" tab click on the
button in the right side of every listing. This will open up a popup box. Enter the name of the Master SKU in the input box and select from the list. Click on the left arrow button"
" next to the Marketplace Product SKU and click on
button. Mapping is completed.
Mapping of products to Master SKUs can also be done in bulk.
