Please tell me there is a way to upload metafield data in bulk by uploading a CSV file... without buying an app for USD20. Surely this should be an easy thing to do?
Anyone know how I can do this? The bulk editor doesn't help as I can't paste data into the bulk editor, and need to manually input which is not possible in my case due to the number of SKUs I need to edit.
I am sorry to say that the people at Shopify are idiots in this regard. They provide built-in metafields now but they do not provide a way to bulk export or bulk import those metafields. They tell you to buy an app. I got rid of my metafield app when Shopify built them in thinking they would have updated the import/export capabilities along with the metafield feature. They did not. Pathetic. All they are really capable of is telling us users to just buy an app to do it.
With Our App DataChamp you can easily export data into a CSV file. Since we also offer a free plan, you do not necessarily have to buy our app, depending on the amount of data you want to export. Our App is also very easy to set up but if you require any support, we can assist you of course!
Hopefully we could help you with your concern and if you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us!
Oh! that is really great! the free plan covers 1 item, and it you even have to test purchase $10 dollars just to test it! MgaPota!
I came to a final decision of not using the meta-fields for it would only force me to purchase an addin which will not be of good use later. Just did a workaround to be able to make use and be able to post other product descriptions without using and addons.
I have the same feeling. Shopify is never clear with the abilities of the tool and I find my self all the time looking for additional apps that meet that gap. It's impossible!
What did you decided to do?
I am using the an app called Metafields2 for downloading my metafields, so at least I have backup (i keep all my warehouse locations in metafields). It was the cheapest one I could find which are not charging for a million functions that I'm not using anyway.
I understand Shopify needs to prioritise which functions to develop. But launching meta fields without capability to up and download, seems more like a bug than anything else!
Wow, can't believe I find myself once again wondering why Shopify has once again decided to either leave out basic functionality or half-bake it so that you need a 3rd party app to make it work in any capacity that would be considered useful.
So we can add metafields to customers account but there is no way to import or export them ..... seriously lolol
