Import field for Alias SKUs
I was really happy to see support for Alias SKUs in the product update today! We have a very large number of these (enough that manually inputting them is nearly impossible) and would love to be able to have them included as a field in the product import. Is this planned?
Thanks for your input! You’re right that we currently do not have a way to import alias SKUs in bulk, but we recently enhanced our combine product feature to also allow you to create aliases. When you click “Combine” from the Products page, you’ll see something a little different now.

For now, we’ll keep this request open and in addition to Dave La Chasse Blank Apparel’s comment, please let us know what your situation looks like today and what you’re looking to accomplish!

Also need to allow the same Alias SKU across multiple products to map different versions of the same product to one SKU for reporting purposes.

There is obviously a lot of need for this for functionality for all a lot of retailers. It's not much work as far as development and coding. Please implement ASAP. Like this month. PLEASE

PLEASE ADD THE FEATURE TO IMPORT SKU ALIAS's IN BULK!
THIS IS A MUST ADD!
I would also like to add my support behind this request. We are a toy parts store (K'NEX, LEGO, etc), and each part is listed in multiple websites that have their own sku system (as we have one ourselves). Right now, we have 20,000 items. I either have to update each item (way to long), or export 20,000 items out of each channel, and import them into ShipStation. I chose the 2nd option due to time constraints, which creates 40,000 skus.
Hey @Daniel - At the moment, you're only able to export a read-only view of your aliases and we currently don't have any updates here. Can you tell me more about your aliases and why there are so many?

@Admin any update on this feature request? I have lots of sku aliases I'd like to upload.
Hi, I would also like this feature. We have a parts store at 2 locations, each having a separate sku system. Because it's a parts store, there are over 20,000 products with skus. I can see the alias field when I download the product, and would be nice to be able to use this to update my product table.

I was shocked to see this was not possible with product import. This had to have just been overlooked, please fix.
