First, you need to ensure that the SKU. is tracked on your website. To do this, you need to use the setSKU method.
Here's how your code could look:
Once you begin collecting this data, your Merchandising Summary Report (available under Marketing - Merchandising) will begin to be populated. At this point you will see your products listed by SKU only:

Next, you may want to upload product name information and merchandising categories. To do so:
- Go to Settings > Merchandising Categories > Customize and upload merchandising categories. Here you will be able to set up merchandising categories by enabling the predefined merchandising categories or by entering your own product categories (e.g., Product Type, Product Subtype).

- Go to the Next page and download the .CSV template file provided. It will list your tracked products by SKU.
- For each SKU, associate the relevant product name (e.g., Sony Cybershot DSC-W7) and category (e.g., Sony) in the template file.
- Upload the file through the Merchandising Categories Upload page.
While it’s not mandatory to create merchandising categories, they’re very useful when you want to check the performance of your product categories.
