How to create definitions for meta-fields?

Welcome to Fordeer!

By enabling you to record customized data that is typically not captured in the Shopify admin, metafields enable you to customize the functioning and appearance of your Shopify store.

Metafields can be used in a variety of ways, such as to display specialized information on your online store or for internal tracking. For instance, a seller of candles could wish to include the burn time for their candles on their product pages, while a grocery store might want to display a product expiration date for canned goods.

This instruction will show you how to create metafields easily on Shopify:

Create metafield definitions

Step 1. On the sidebar of the homepage, go to Settings and access Custom data.

Step 2. Select the part of your store that you want to add a metafield to. For example, Products or Customers (which would be displayed on your invoice templates later).

Step 3. Click Add definition.

Optional :
In the Namespace and key field, edit the default identifier for your metafield.
In the Description field, enter a description for your metafield values.
To allow custom storefronts to display values for this metafield, select Storefronts.
To allow for this definition to display for automated collections, select Automated collections.This option is only available for product and variant metafields.
Click Select content type, and then select the content type that best matches your metafield from the list.
To allow a list of values in your metafield, select Accept list of values.
Click Definition pinned to unpin the definition from the resource detail page.
Click Save to successfully create one meta field definition.

Noted that: the key of metafield can be used in the Invoice Line items later.
