How to Create Metafields

The “Highlight Product Features” addon supports all types of metafields. However, you are encouraged to create the following metafields:

  • Rich text
  • Dimension
  • Volume
  • Weight

Follow these steps to create metafields:

In Shopify admin > Settings > Custom data > Products > Add definition

Name your metafield type, for example, “Shipping” if you want to show shipping information, or “Material” or “Size” if you want to show the material and size of the product.

Then, click the “Select type” button and choose the type of metafield you want to use. In my case, I would choose “Rich text”. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button.

A new metafield will now be created in ALL your products. To add information to a specific product, go to that product and enter the information in the metafield.
Follow these steps:
Products > Find and click on the product you want to add metafield information to.

Scroll down and click on the metafield to enter information.
