Hi Everyone

 

My question - Is it possible to add metafield values to the cvs product import file when i load my products into my store?

 

I currently load hundreds of products into my store via the product upload csv.  I then need to go into each one and enrich each with 3 x meta field values.  Is there a way I can add these values to the file at the point of import?  This would save me a lot of time.

 

Thanks

Chris

This is an accepted solution.

Thanks Chris, 

 

Unfortunately, it is not possible with Shopify standard interface. You will need to use an app such as Matrixify.

Hi Chris,

What values do you need to add? Something custom? Can you give an example?

 

Thanks.

Hi Avet,

 

Yes, of course.  I add 3 x values for the products I sell. These are team name, season and brand.

 

I sell football shirts and add the name of the team e.g. Liverpool, the season they  wore it e.g 1997/98 and then the brand e.g adidas.  

 

These values will obviously vary for every product we list. 

 

Fyi - we were using the shopify core field 'vendor' for another purpose,  but not any more, so we are in process of moving this back to reporting 'brand'. So we will be down to 2 x metafields instead of 3. 

 

Does that help you think through our issue? 

 

Thanks,

 

Chris

Hello @bcyd-avet and @Cooperman100 

 

Renars here from Matrixify.
Thank you for suggesting the use of our app @bcyd-avet 

 

You sure can bulk import and export Metafields with our app along with other Product data.
Here we have written a great tutorial on how to do just that with our app - How to manage Shopify Metafields?

 

I hope that such a solution would work for you. If you have any further questions or concerns regarding the Matrixify app, let us know!
