How do I add additional custom fields to my product page?

You can add additional custom fields to my product page with a few clicks when editing your products. This is a valuable feature for you if you are looking to display additional product information on specific product pages.

Note: This process needs to be done per product via the BigCommerce control panel. There is not currently a way to bulk update multiple products with the same custom fields.

Some good examples of custom fields would be:

  • ISBN

  • Product Dimensions

  • Language

  • Publisher

You can place anything in the custom fields that you want to tell potential customers about your product. Please follow the below steps to add custom fields to your product(s):

1.) Login to your BigCommerce Control Panel.

2.) Click on the Products, and then choose View Products from the drop down. custom-fields-product-view-products.png

3.) Select Action(the gear) and then Edit on the product you would like to add custom fields to. custom-fields-edit-product.png

4.) Select the tab Custom Fields. custom-fields-tab.png

5.) Now you can enter the custom fields your product requires. Below are several examples that I have used to show you how to add multiple custom fields. If you wish to add more than one, please select the green circle at the end of the row. custom-fields-data.png

6.) Once you have added all the the custom fields that you need, make sure to Save & Exit or Save and Keep Editing in the bottom right corner of the page.

Now those fields that you created should appear on the product page when customer view your storefront. Below is an example of what my product page now looks like after adding the above fields. custom-fields-before.png

You can also move the Other Details tab to show along with the Price, Shipping, etc. above the Product Description. If you would like do this, please follow the instructions in this article.

Here's an example of what my book looks like now that I've moved the Other Details panel. (Some customization to the Other Details panel was done to hide certain aspects of the content.) custom-fields-after.png
