Creating Custom Attributes/Meta Data for a Product

Custom product meta data allows you to save additional information on each product. For products, this is typically used by developers to group or add additional information on the website.

  1. To create an attribute for a product, navigate to DeveloperMeta Data
  2. Click the Product tab from the options at the top of the screen and then click Add Product Meta Data
  3. Select a Title for your attribute.
    For an example, you could create an attribute to log tasting notes on each bottle (that I want to be separate from the product's "Description" field.
  4. Code is just a reference point for doing API calls. You do not need to change this, but you can if you'd like. 
  5. Next select your Data Type. There are 11 different data types available.
  6. Decide whether or not you want your attribute to be a Required field. If it's required, it will need to be entered in order for the product to be saved.
  7. Finally you can set the Sort Order. The sort order determines the order your product attributes will appear in on a product page. 
  8. Click Add Product Meta Data when you're finished building your attribute
  9. Now, when you click on a product under StoreProducts, each will have you custom field added under the Meta Data tab.
  10. If you want your new field data to display on your website, you'll need to contact a designer in order for them to include it in your product page layout.
