Tip
To each vendor's SKU, we add a three letter prefix that designates its brand. As an example, Waterford's prefix is WWR. Let's imagine it has SKU in Bridge named 1234. In Bridge, the SKU would be WWR-1234. Using this system, you can easily tell which of your items came from Bridge since they have our nomenclature.
