Metafields / how to

So, i don't really get it ... How can i create and modify meta fields within shopify?

Do i really need a 3rd party app to use and control metafields?

I cannot imagine that there is no internal function to control metafields in the admin area for the frontend shop. 
Shopify earns millions a year, even Wordpress can do it with custom fields. 

So i am wrong, or can't Shopify really do it?

Hey Christopher,

You can manage metafields without any 3rd parties, but it well depends on how many of them you are trying to add. Two options here: 1. use Shopify's BulkEditor or 2. use Shopify's import/export tool. More details here https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/products/metafields and here https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/productivity-tools/bulk-editing-products

Hope that helps!

Another way to do this is to use Airtable to manage your metafields, across all Shopify objects that support them (product, variants, customers, etc.). Take a look at how to bulk edit Shopify metafields this way.
