When trying to upload photos for some variants I added, I keep getting an error message saying "sku can't be blank"... when it's not. I gave the new variants skus and got the "variant updated" message upon saving each one. But when I try to upload a photo for a variant (again, already saved with an SKU) I get the "SKU can't be blank" error and the photo won't save and I'm kicked back to the beginning. My SKUs aren't long and my process was working for several variants before the errors started.
I have kinda same problem. I can't create a product without SKU (even if I don't tick the box "This product has a SKU or barcode").
SKU can't be blank
I was able to get this fixed by contacting shopify support. They said it was some configuration/etc kind of an issue that they were able to solve. It took a moment to get through the first stage customer support before they understood the problem (maybe a problem that I have to communicate the issue as non-native english speaker though)
We found that entering the SKU as the first entry worked.
The first text entry we made was the SKU, followed by all the other product info.
We then checked the box (featured in the screenshot) and saved the product.
It worked for us so it could be worth a shot. We hope it works for you.
As someone else stated. Entering a SKU first before anything else fixes this issue. I just entered the product title and the SKU, then hit save as draft before going back and entering the product description, adding the media, prices, sizes, etc.
Solution!! Make a product called test and make the price $1, and put "Test" as the description. Then save it, and duplicate and edit it for however many products you need. If you have further issues, ask the support staff, they are very helpful and friendly
