Template SKUs are a new feature we're utilizing with future Epicor Eagle clients. These are particularly handy for clients who sell products from other vendors, or who otherwise have products on their site that aren't in Epicor Eagle.
What are Template SKUs?
Template SKUs are a sort of flag we can place on products on your site. When a product flagged with a template SKU is purchased, it will automatically be created in Epicor Eagle. This is particularly useful if you're using drop shipping, or selling products direct from vendors.
The code involved with Template SKUs can be used sitewide, on all your products, without any issues. This is because Eagle checks to see if a given SKU already exists before creating a new item, so there's no danger of accidental duplicates.
Template SKU product orders can be set up as invoices, and they will decrement the newly created inventory for that product.
