Product & SKUs: One stop shop for all things product & SKUs

Add New Products & SKUs

At Pod, the Product is the parent (or product line) and the SKUs are variants (flavors) of the Product, i.e. a 12oz bag of cookies with 6 bags to a case is the Product and oatmeal, chocolate chip + mint are its SKUs. Product variants should all have the same net weight, case count and number of units percase. In this example, if there was also a 6oz bag of the same flavors, the 6oz bag would become a new Product and the flavors it's SKUs.

SKU Pricing & Status: In stock, out of stock or launching soon and collecting preorders


When adding prices to your SKUs, you list the price buyers pay for your Case Packs, delivered. Unlike other distributors, Pod does not mark up the cost of your Case Pack. The Pod Service Fee is deducted from the cost you set for each Case Pack.  You set the pricing of your product on each region-specific page of each SKU.

You are able to set the pricing of your product on the region-specific page of each SKU.


Email [email protected], your Category Manager or submit a Promotions form if you would like to offer a specific retailer special pricing on your product. Provide the store name, case pack price(s) and MSRP for each SKU you would like to offer at a special price and we will get this activated for you.

Setting Inventory Status

Pod Foods offers two statuses for your inventory: In Stock and Out of Stock. You are able to set and change the status of your inventory in the region-specific tab of each SKU.For Pod Express inventory, stock status is determined automatically. When setting up new Express SKUs, set your Express inventory to Out of Stock and ensure the region is toggled on.
