About Metafields2

Add extra data fields to your data, using Shopify metafields

Did you know you can add extra data fields to nearly every resource in your Shopify store? It's true. Shopify has a somewhat obscure feature they call metafields (not the same as meta tags) which is typically only available to developers thru the Shopify API. The Metafields2 application now provides you the ability to add, manage, import, and export extra fields for nearly everything — the shop itself, collections, products, product variants, customers, orders, blogs, articles & pages!

The app installs like any other app and adds context-aware links within your Shopify dashboard to the app where you can create and manage all of your extra fields. The app also provides full import/export capability via CSV files similar to the way you can import products and/or customers now in your dashboard.

  • # New Metafield types supported! You can now use this app to create and populate the new Metafield types Shopify released on July 1st. Single line string, multiline string, boolean, dimensions, weight, etc.
  • # Writable customer metafields ! With a bit of custom code in your theme, you can now update customer metafields from the front end of your shop. This means you can ask the customer for their preferences, measurements, birthday, or any thing else you'd like to gather and store them in metafields you configure using our app. If you have the coding capabilities to customize html, css, and javascript in your theme and want to utilize this new feature, we can provide you with helpful tips and example code to get you going!
  • # Important Note This is NOT an 'SEO' app enabling meta tags. Although the name metafields might make you think of 'meta tags' at first, the resemblance is entirely coincidental. Its name is simply the same name Shopify gives this 'extra fields' feature via their API. With that said, you can certainly use this app for meta tags or any other 'extra' data you want to attach to Shopify resources for SEO purposes, but its utility is much, much broader and the use cases are really limitless.
  • # Important Note This app will allow you to create, manage, and add data to metafields in your store but makes no changes to your themes or templates on your behalf. To put the metafields you create to use in your themes, you will need to do so manually, they will not automatically display or trigger any special functionality for your store. For reference, search online for Shopify blog articles and their online documentation for metafields to better understand them.

The developers are incredibly helpful and supportive. They went above and beyond to help. This app works well and serves as a bridge for my store's products and their many complicated configurations.

This was the recommended app to update shipping dimensions for ShipperHQ. I can't image how anyone could use the export for updating a large amount of products. For my needs the export is almost unusable.
With this app the metafield values export in rows instead of columns. My 2600 products exported into 35000 rows on the export. Other apps I found export the same data into 7500 rows.
After a lot of searching I found a better app that exports the data perfectly. It's called Excelify. Excelify is more expensive but it's the only app that exported product and variant data together with metafields in columns.
Some troubleshooting advice:
To prevent a failed import, in both Excel and Google Sheets, convert the ID column format to "Custom Number 0". Both Excel and Sheets have a bad habit of condensing the long ID number which results in a failed import.
Be sure to import and export data in UTF-8 format. This seems to be the standard for metafield apps.

Great app for the price. Not the prettiest interface but it works which is what's most important ...
