How to Create Custom Fields

Create Custom Fields

This guide will help you to set up custom fields for a product.

Custom fields set on a product can override fields set on a template. This may be useful if you do not wish to create a new template for a product, or if you need to change a product field in order to list to a different sales channel.

Common custom fields include Title, Description, Price, Size, Colour and Brand.

You will need to create a Custom Fields tag to which you can then assign a value.

 

TIP: Unique product identifiers, such as SKUs, UPCs, EANs, or ASINs, cannot be changed on a product.
