Custom Fields

Custom fields allow you to specify additional product information that will appear on the product page, such as a book's ISBN, a DVD's release date, or a product's material. The location of these fields on the product page may differ depending on your theme.

Custom fields will appear automatically in the product's details if they are defined on the product. A product can have a maximum of 200 custom fields, and they can be created via CSV import or through the API.
