How to efficiently populate fields for the Google Shopping app in your Shopify store
If you have managed or are managing an online Shopify store, populating data fields can be a mundane task. However, it is necessary if you want to use the Google Shopping app.
Similarly, completing the data fields for Google Shopping manually is also tiring. To help conquer this task, we’ve discovered some excellent solutions that allow you to populate the fields for the Google Shopping app in bulk.
It will not only give you back precious time, but it will significantly reduce the margin of error. So let’s take a look.
Adding Manufacturing Part Numbers (MPNs) is the most efficient method for populating important data fields on your online store. You can easily add MPNs to the Google Shopping app. However, if you want to add them in bulk, you’ll need to add the MPNs to the appropriate metafield.
To complete this task, there are two options.
Firstly, you can use the CSV to populate every product’s namespace using the mm-google-shopping feature. Please note that you should use lowercase for these entries, even though the dropdown menu shows the first letter as an uppercase.
If the CSV method does not work for you, you can use a third-party app called Matrixify. It is simple and easy to use and will let you add MPNs to the relevant metafields. If you have numerous metafields that need updating, include Metafields as additional columns along with items they are attached to.
Editing individual metafields for product variants
If you need to toggle the variants individually, use the following query:
(&query=<name of product>)
Once you gain access, you can add the MPNs in the metafields using meta_fields.global.MPN
You will need to use uppercase for MPN, as lowercase will not work here.
