Product SKU Validation Rule

For the Product SKU validation rule, the system will check all the order items SKU information for validation. You are required to enter the exact SKU number for validation. You can enter multiple SKU values, however wildcard entry is not supported in the validation rule.

SKU Quantity Validation Rule

For the SKU Quantity validation rules, the system will check all the order items to determine if any of the items meet the rule criteria. For example, a client purchased 1x product A and 2x product B. If you have the below SKU Quantity rule configured, the rule will be triggered to put the order in review. It is because the system found out that the client purchased more than 1 unit of product B, after screening through all items in that particular order.woocommerce sku quantityThe screenshot below shows the order been flagged as Manual Review due to the SKU Quantity validation rule that detects the SKU Quantity is greater than 1.woocommerce sku quantity review


Combination of Both Validation Rule

You can combine both validation rules for a more specific validation. For example, you only want to flag the order for review if a client purchased more than 2 units of product B (SKU of a1234567), then you can create a grouping rule as below. woocommerce sku grouping rule

For example, it could be the product item is a high ticket item that you want to carefully review before the fulfillment, or it could also be a suspicious purchase pattern if the product is purchased in large quantities and so on.
