What does the Item Generator do?
When you set up your items with the Item Generator it automatically creates SKUs for all of your items. Creating items with the Item Generator simplifies the ordering process for your backers, generates accurate counts for manufacturing and streamlines fulfillment.
The Item Generator also sets up the survey you send to your backers to gather information and provide additional items for purchase. For example, the survey collects the options your backers pick for their items, offers add-on items for purchase, and collects your backers’ shipping addresses. For more information, see Overview: Surveys and Overview: SKUs.
