Product Enrichment Guidelines

Product Category: This indicates the exact product type your listing belongs to on Jane. It is separated into 3 sections: Category, Sub-Category, & Product Type (in that order). You will select the product category that the item belongs to. An accurate category will help customers find your item.  

  • The first drop-down indicates the Category  
  • This indicates if this is a piece of clothing, home, jewelry, etc.  
  • The second drop-down will indicate the sub-category within the category you have already selected  
  • This narrows down where this product belongs on the Jane website  
  • The third drop-down will have you select the product type  
  • Product type is ultimately the most specific categorizer and tells us exactly what this product is  
  • If you do not see a product category that accurately represents your item, please reach out to for assistance  


Product Department: This is an additional required field for categorizing your products and helps customers find your item. You will select the product department that the item belongs to. Each listing requires at least 1 Department. You can add an additional department where applicable.  

  • Category-specific instructions can be found here. 

Product Attributes: This is where you will add the attributes that describe your product. Make sure to include all attributes that apply to our product (if they are relevant of course). Again, these attributes will help customers find your products. Each listing requires a minimum of 3 and you can add up to 15.  

Specific Product Categories and Attributes instructions can be found here:

Building SKUs with Options & Variants

Options and variants are two important concepts when building a product. Options refer to the different choices or features that customers can select when purchasing a product. Examples include Color, Size, Pattern, or Style. Variants are unique combinations that result from different options being selected. If your option is Color, your variants might consist of Yellow, Blue, and Green, for example.  


  1. From the product form, navigate to the “Variations” section and find “SKU Variations” 
  2. You'll notice that the "SKU Variations" toggle is set to "Yes" by default. This indicates that most products have options and variants. Keeping it enabled allows you to add various configurations easily. 
  3. Use the dropdown under "SKU Options" to choose an existing option from the available list or create a new one if it's not already listed. Options are the different choices customers can make for your product. 
  4. Once you've selected or created an option, it's time to add the associated variants. 
  5. Repeat the process until all desired options and variants are added. Ensure you cover all the possible combinations that you want to offer to customers. 

VariationsNote: For personalized options, you will follow the same steps for adding options and variants. Simply select "Personalized Options" in the dropdown instead of "Options" and proceed accordingly. 


SKU Best Practices 

A SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) is a unique ID or code for each product you sell in your store. SKUs help you keep track of each product's quantity and location in your inventory. Using SKUs in your business can save time, reduce errors, and provide valuable insights into your products' performance, ultimately leading to better decision-making and improved overall efficiency. When creating SKU codes (Stock Keeping Units) for your products, it's essential to follow best practices to ensure consistency, accuracy, and efficiency in your inventory management. Here are a few key best practices: 

  • SKUs must be unique: Each SKU code should be unique to a specific product variant. SKU codes are case-sensitive and must be unique per seller. 
  • Intuitive and simple: Create a logical system for generating SKU codes. Use a format that helps identify key product attributes like product type, color, size, and other relevant characteristics. Ensure that the SKU codes are specific enough to avoid ambiguity. Customers, employees, and software should be able to identify the product accurately based on the SKU. 
  • Consistency Across Sales Channels: Maintain consistency in SKU codes across all sales channels, including online platforms, brick-and-mortar stores, and any other sales channels you may have. If possible, integrate your SKU system with your inventory management software. This will help automate processes and reduce manual errors. 


Tip: By following these best practices, you can create SKU codes that enhance your inventory management, streamline processes, and contribute to a more efficient and organized business operation.
