I was used to work with Prestashop, now I'm planning to switch on Shopify platform but I still have a big doubt about one thing: products' attributes.
On Prestashop, it's such a simple thing add features or attributes as we want to call them to a product: in my example, for each product I have to add features like product's material, color, length, diameter and other option and most important is that this features can help customers search products by filtering them.
What am I missing about setting my Shopify store or is there an App to build something similar?
The only thing I made is importing these infos from a CSV file and, using metafields, add them like text in a tab on product pages.
Sure you can help me, I give you my best regards to all of you.
There are a few ways to handle this easily on Shopify.
Some themes have built in "filtering" options which are based around product tags.
Off of the top of my head, 2 themes that I know of which have this are:
Flex theme - https://outofthesandbox.com/products/flex-theme
Alternatively, you can use the free 'search & discovery' app (made by Shopify) to handle basic filters (color, material, size), as well as create filters via metafields for more advanced filtering:
And then there are 'advanced filtering' apps available on the Shopify App store (for a monthly fee) which will provide even more filtering functionality.
The most popular apps for this are:
Smart Product Filter & Search - https://apps.shopify.com/product-filter-and-search
Boost AI Search & Filter - https://apps.shopify.com/product-filter-search
Searchanise Search & Filter - https://apps.shopify.com/searchanise
Hope the above helps point you in the right direction! 🙂
thanks for your answer and availability.
I was thinking that best solution is to use metafields definition as the feature Prestashop correspondance.
But I have another doubt.
I created a product tab called "Product Specifications" in wich I bulk imported, via Metafields Guru, all the product features in one text, like a "normal" description.
Now, I would add for all products (about 2000) each metafield definition but I don't know how can I bulk import them.
In my Prestashop exported file, I have one cell called "Features" where the product features follow this scheme, ex.: Material:PVC, Color:Black, and so on...
As I am seeing here on Shopify is that I should repeat the product handle for each product feature and this will be very difficult and it will take me long time.
Can you suggest me as should I do for making an importation without errors and automatized?
Thanks in advance
thanks for your reply but I've already installed the App and I don't know how to set all the fields in just one unique cell.
Can you help me?
I don't have enough experience with the app to be able to walk you through the exact steps. I'd recommend reaching out to the app's support team directly, for assistance (email@example.com).
In the meantime (while you wait to hear back from them), you can also view their official help doc on how to do imports via CSV files: https://support.metafields.guru/support/solutions/articles/44002097804-how-do-i-import-metafields-fr...
