I would like to be able to change the value of a metafield for an order from my order page. I created a drop-down menu in the order page and when the user select a value I would like to change the value of a metafield according to the drop-down value. Is this possible? Can someone help? Thank you!

@italbeauty Hi there,

For security reasons, a metafield can be changed from the third-party server, not from the theme code. If you want to handle with it, you must rent some server and create a simple private app.

Also, you can try to find some metafield app, that has such feature as a changing metafield from the Order page.

Thank you so much Sasha!

Do you have some pointers on how to build a small app to perform this action? I am not clear how I can connect from the order page to this small app to update the metafield.

I checked on the app store and I couldn't find any app that can performe the update from the order page, are you aware of any? thanks! I
