Easy Auto SKU Generator for WooCommerce


A very simple plug-in of auto-generating SKU for those who are too lazy to fill in the article (SKU) of the product when it is created. Just activate the plugin and when creating a product the SKU will automatically generate.

In the last update of the plugin, a new function was added — Generation of SKU into separate categories.

The new version of the plugin adds the function of mass generating SKU of all products at the same time. We will improve this option. In the future, not only mass generation will be available, but also generation for certain parameters (generation by attributes, by tags, by categories).

Settings plugin

Woocommerce → Settings → Products → SKU Settings


  1. Automatic generation of SKU when creating goods
  2. If you have already registered SKU, then generation will not follow.
  3. Automatic generation of the SKU of the variable product while saving
  4. You can set the number of characters in SKU
  5. You can add a prefix before SKU
  6. Select format SKU (Only numbers, Only letters, Letters and numbers, Product Slag Generation)
  7. You can use the product ID in SKU
  8. Disable / Enable SKU generation in variable goods.
  9. Special option “Take the previous product” — generates product taking into account the last published product. Suppose you have the last published product that has SKU 005234, and if this option is enabled, the next item will be 005235 (+1 to the previous published product)
  10. Added and ready to use function
    “Bulk generate SKU for all products”
  11. Added and ready to use a new function
    “Bulk generate SKU by Category”
  12. You can allow duplicate SKUs in the online store

Bulk SKU generation for all products stops and does not work correctly — what should I do?

Some users have problems with mass SKU generation. Today I can say with confidence that the plugin has been fixed in relation to this function, we decided this in this thread on the user support forum.

So what if mass creation ceases?

  1. Be sure to update the plugin to the latest version

  2. On the settings page in a browser, open DevTools and on the console tab check for errors. If you have any errors, be sure to let us know in the user support forum. If you see a 500 error, this is a server error, and you need to get your server logs to determine the error.

  3. If you know how to do this, then look at the server logs, there are all the errors. Write us about the error on the user support forum.

  4. Contact the technical support service of your hosting provider and explain the cause of the problem. Find out where the server logs are located (if you do not know which log is stored). Ask to fix the problem, maybe they will fix it.

Only after we see the server logs, we can find out the reason for the script to work incorrectly. You can find an alternative to our plugin, but keep in mind that something on your server is not working correctly.

Be sure to write to the user support forum if the error has been fixed. There are other people who will use our plugin and need to be properly informed.

After 2 weeks of waiting, finally dev response, but with a line that makes no sense at all .. what the heck are netsroids?! Googled, no idea! But I requested to have a PREFIX based on category to stand before the numerical count ... but he tells me it already exists ... I'm assuming he is refering to "generate by gategory" ... which does not work, all it does is generate numerical for any specifc chose category. Lot of waste of time! Might be "Easy", but not great!

A really useful tool especially if you have product variations where the SKU can sometimes get a bit messy. Would have awarded 5 stars if I could find a quick link from the Wordpress tools menu!
