Custom Fields Migration Service

LitExtension experts can help you migrate data fields which originally do not exist in your old or new platform core. These fields are important as it allows you to specify additional information of your products or pages.

What is Custom Field?

Custom fields are fields used to specify additional information about your products or pages. Custom fields can be created directly by modifying your database or through a plugin/module built by third party developers. In our migration process, the definition of custom fields is slightly different.

They are:

  • Fields which are in the Source Store’s default database but are not in the Target Store’s.
  • Fields which are not in both Source Store’s and Target Store’s default database.
  • Fields which are custom in the Source Store but available in the Target Store.
  • Note: This option is only available for open-source eCommerce platforms.

How to import Custom Fields/Attributes to Shopify?

During the data migration to Shopify, all product sizes (length, width, height) and ean, as well as attributes, which are not included in variants creation, will be migrated in MetaFields by the default.

After migrating product attributes from your Source Store to Shopify, you’ll need to install a free Metafields Guru plugin to create, update and delete metafields for products (variants included), both smart and custom collections, customers, orders (draft orders included), blogs, pages and the shop directly from the admin panel of your Shopify store. Otherwise, metafields won’t be displayed and editable in the admin panel.

Follow the instructions below to understand how it works:

  1. Having installed Metafields Guru from Shopify App Store, open Apps from the left navigation menu of your admin panel and choose the plugin. Select the type of data you want to edit.
  2. Use the filter to find a particular product.
  3. Click on Metafields navigation tab, enter or edit wanted data. Once you’ve made all changes, don’t forget to save them by pressing on the Create Metafield button.

  • go to “store/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/single-product/tabs”
  • find file “additional-information.php”
  • add the following code:

echo ‘<table class=”shop_attributes”><tbody>’;
foreach(get_post_meta($post->ID, $key, true) as $key => $attr) {
if(strpos($key, “_”) !== 0) {
echo ‘<th>’.$key.'</th>’;
echo ‘<td>’.array_shift($attr).'</td>’;
echo ‘</tr>’;
echo ‘</tbody></table>’;
