To make the most out of Prediko, keep your data sources up to date.

🧹 Keep it clean

  • Ensure each unique SKU has a unique name to avoid duplication and deceiving analytics, forecasts, and recommendations.

    • e.g. if you have the same SKU present in 2 Products - make sure this SKU has the same name in both of these Products

      • You sell White Tshirt in size S which has SKU name of TwhiteS in two products, one discounted and other original product page:

        • Product: Tshirt; SKU: TWhiteS

        • Product: Tshirt Discounted; SKU: TWhiteS

  • Stock level is dynamic, up to date, and accurate (eg. not default set to 100,000). Failing to do so will lead to inaccurate buying recommendations.

  • "Product type” = Actual Product Category eg. 'T-shirt', not 'T-shirt Summer 2021'. A large portion of the seasonal forecasts is based on product types. Make sure the taxonomy is used consistently across years and product collections.

  • Check spelling and for typos in product “options” eg. ‘colour’ and ‘color’ and/or ‘Size’ and ‘size’ → have just one way of spelling.

  • Don’t delete Shopify products to avoid losing this product data forever! Move the Product into the "Archived" state on Shopify instead.

  • Don't delete Locations, just Deactivate them.

  • Add Stock, even if 0, to SKUs per Location. So we know what is the associated Warehouse per SKU.

  • Add Unit Cost by Product, to ensure accurate Cost in Prediko.
