StoreAutomator can create product-specific Custom Fields and assign them to your products to manage your inventory by categorizing your products in a detailed way. Custom Fields are for visual and organizational purposes, and also they make searchable fields in sales platforms. With custom fields, you can:
- Create a custom field for SPF (for sunscreen products) number to be classified as 0-15, 16-30, 31-50, 50&up and arrange it to look like the below example.
When entering your product manually in StoreAutomator, these custom fields are visible, and you can select the correct SPF to be displayed and selected.
2. Create a color family custom field to choose your product’s color. See the below example. Please select the color and enter it into the database.
Custom fields are useful in Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Customizing your products will provide more data to the channel and therefore have a higher chance in sales; StoreAutomator recommends using custom fields.
