You can create Alt SKUs, Aliases and Clones for products in the SA platform. After inputting the required fields, you can import the file.

You don’t need to fill all of the columns in the bulk file but the first column must always be the  “MultichannelAlias.sku” field but the other columns can be in any order. StoreAutomator accepts various file formats such as .xlsx, .csv, .txt, .zip.

You can see the setup of the bulk file below.
