Our free one-click install app enables BigCommerce merchants to add custom data (unique key-value pairs) to orders, products, product variants, categories, brands, and channels once the respective theme has been modified by a Developer to display the data as intended. This data is then used by search engines and customers to ensure the desired product is found and purchased.
BigCommerce's out-of-the-box framework allows for a set number of product attributes such as Name, SKU, Price, and Description. Making use of metafields provides you with more flexibility in managing custom data across your online store.
Brands often have other information they want to associate with the resources of their store (products, categories, etc.) such as warranty info and care instructions. Once the metafields editor is installed, BigCommerce merchants can view & edit metafields from a simple and easy-to-use interface.
Previously, all metafields had to be created and modified from the BigCommerce Developer API. This less-than-intuitive option only allowed for the creation of metafields for products, with no ability to batch edit products. With our BigCommerce metafield management tool, you can replace previous cumbersome workflows with streamlined processes of manipulating data stored inside of your BigCommerce store's instance.
If you have a BigCommerce store, installing our app is a breeze. Simply click "install" on our BigCommerce app store listing page, fill out the short signup form, and you're ready to start. Once installed, you can create, update, and delete metafields with ease. Store any value up to 65,535 characters, over 250x more than the 255-character limit on BigCommerce's built-in product custom fields.
However, it is important to note that your newly created metafields will not properly display until your theme file(s) have been modified to display the metafields in their desired format and location. For merchants who are technically inclined to make these changes, we have created an in-depth PDF guide and video tutorial with code examples that will assist you in getting your metafields displayed properly. If you are unable or unwilling to modify your store's theme files, our team would be happy to provide an implementation quote.
Additionally, you can keep track of metafield data with our simple metafields settings and assign permission types for cleaner execution, visibility, and writability of fields by other API users.
** App is provided for free, as-is, as contribution to the BigCommerce community. If you require help to modify your theme/data, Groove would be happy to assist under a paid project. **
