4. Enter a new unique SKU for the new product, along with any other fields which require unique values to be entered (e.g. URL). An attribute can be configured to accept only unique values, so the inclusion list of which attributes require unique values entered per product will vary.

5. Once you are happy with all entered product data for your new product, click Save.
